Local company manufactures hand sanitizer, and donates to province's health heroes

Scentuals, a female-founded manufacturer of 100 percent natural skin and body care products based in Coquitlam, is now producing hand sanitizer and including them in donations to the health care heroes at B.C. Health. Scentuals has been making aromatherapy and skin care products using natural, cruelty-free, and ethically-sourced ingredients since 2008 and is proud to be adding hand sanitizer to its production line. Although never having anticipated being a producer of the alcohol-based product, Scentuals saw a growing need in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and wanted to support their community in this crisis.

These donations now include hand sanitizers each month to B.C. Health to support health-care professionals and local essential service workers during this difficult time.
