Given the risk of a shortage of hydroalcoholic gel in France, Bernard Arnault has instructed the LVMH Perfumes & Cosmetics business to prepare its productions sites to manufacture substantial quantities of hydroalcoholic gel to be provided to public authorities.
LVMH will therefore use all the production facilities of its Perfumes & Cosmetic brands (Parfums Christian Dior, Guerlain and Parfums Givenchy) in France to produce large quantities of hydroalcoholic gel from Monday.
The gel will be delivered free of charge to the French health authorities and as a priority from this Monday to the Assistance Publique-Hospitaux de Paris.
Through thus initiative, LVMH intends to help address the risk of lack of product in France and enable a greater number of people to continue to take the right action to protect themselves from the spread of the virus.
LVMH will continue to honour this commitment for as long as necessary, in connection with the French health authorities.
