Many hospitals are experiencing an extreme shortage of supplies such as sanitizer, masks, shields, gowns and more. To answer this need, a number of spa brands are shifting gears to either manufacture these much needed items or organize donations to the protection of these healthcare workers.
Circadia by Dr. Pugliese. Circadia by Dr. Pugliese, Inc. has announced the availability of Circadia Hand Sanitizer, in response to the shortage brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The isopropyl alcohol-based sanitizer is being donated to local Pennsylvania hospitals and is available for sale to grocery stores, pharmacies and physicians, as well as salon and spa owners.
Celluma. To help meet the needs of medical professionals on the front lines, Celluma has pivoted operations to manufacture much needed medical face shields. Celluma engineers have designed a medical face shield the company can produce with material and methods currently used to manufacture its Celluma series of products.
