In response to the urgent need of hand sanitizers, NENA Skincare has created a natural hand sanitizer and is manufacturing it around the clock in the upcoming months.

Approved by Health Canada, the product is made to effectively kill harmful bacteria and germs with 72 percent v/v ethyl alcohol. Enriched with organic aloe vera, calendula and blueberry, it will hydrate hands and help against the drying effect of alcohol. This sanitizer, as well as all NENA products, are made locally in Richmond, B.C.

To help protect the community, NENA will donate one hand sanitizer to those in need for every hand sanitizer purchased online. Currently, they have committed to donating 2,500 units of hand sanitizer to the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation and AtiraWomen’s Resource Society. If the online sales exceed this number, they will be donating more product.

“The health and safety of Canadians has always been a priority for us. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in many ways, creating a time of anxiety and stress for all of us. As a skincare manufacturer and brand, we feel humbled to be able to help our community during these times of uncertainty.”

NENA Skincare is the house brand of Ironwood Clay Company, a Health Canada-approved personal care manufacturer specializing in glacial clay-based products, headquartered in Richmond, B.C. since 1988.
