“At L’Oréal we feel a strong sense of responsibility to support relief efforts for the most vulnerable during this unprecedented crisis,” says Vismay Sharma, L’Oréal UK and Ireland Country Managing Director. “The frontline healthcare workers and retail staff are doing an incredible job looking after the sick and providing essential products and services to communities. We feel honoured to be able to provide them with hand sanitisers and key hygiene products. We believe in the beauty of community and are proud to contribute to the needs of our heroic NHS and HSE staff, and those on the retail frontlines across the UK and Ireland.”

L’Oréal Ireland has also announced that they have frozen the payments of their most vulnerable and small-sized customers in their distribution network, including hair salons, until their businesses resume. Additionally, L’Oréal Ireland has shortened its payment times for small suppliers who have been most exposed to this economic crisis.

The L’Oréal family includes L’Oréal Paris, Garnier, Kiehl’s, Lancôme, Urban Decay, YSL, House 99, L’Oréal Paris Men Expert, La Roche-Posay, CeraVe, Vichy, Roger and Gallet, Baxter of California, Kerastase, Redken, Matrix and Decleor.
