California-Based Personal Care Company Partners with United Help Ukraine
to Get 200,000 Bottles of Hand Sanitizer and Hand Wash to Ukraine
SANTA CLARITA, CALIFORNIA, May 23, 2022 — Desperately needed hand sanitizer for hand hygiene stations and other hospital and health facilities is making its way to Ukraine in a donation from Muse Health, a division of CC Wellness.
The donated 2.1 million ounces of product — strict USP grade (U.S. Pharmacopeia) hand sanitizer and hand wash — is being distributed in Ukraine by United Help Ukraine, a Maryland-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
Underscoring the great need for hand sanitizer at health stations and organizations housing displaced people in Ukraine, WHO Representative and Head of the WHO Country Office in Ukraine Dr. Jarno Habicht recently stated: “We found out that this shortage has been obstructing healthcare workers from following correct hand hygiene procedures.”
United Help Ukraine President Maryna Baydyuk added that “Ukrainian hospitals are under unprecedented pressure. The number of people they need to treat has increased dramatically,” she said, “while the supply chains are overburdened. The Muse Health donation will allow our partner hospitals in Ukraine to replenish their stock and continue providing lifesaving services.”
Founded during the COVID-19 pandemic with the mission to help people feel safe and protected, Muse Health prior to this initiative had already donated more than 55,000 bottles of hand sanitizer to those in need.
“We recognize how critical it is for people to feel safe in tough circumstances,” CC Wellness CMO Mimi Anderson said. “We know hand sanitizer on its own can’t change the world, but supporting people when they need it most can make a lasting difference.”
Muse Health hand sanitizer kills 99.9 percent of germs in 15 seconds, while nourishing and hydrating with vitamin E and glycerin. The FDA- and CDC-compliant, vegan, and cruelty-free formulas are available on Amazon.com and at musehealth.com.
