As communities worldwide see heightened demand and a shortage of hand sanitizer, one locally based company has shifted gears to help with supply.
Floratech, a company that produces botanical ingredients used by formulators of cosmetic and personal care products, decided last week to start producing its own sanitizer and is donating it to those who need it the most.
The company is donating 200 bottles to the 7th Street Food Pantry and Outreach located at 4223 S. 7th Street in Phoenix and other churches, synagogues and food pantries.
Floratech's hand sanitizer is comparable to other commercially recognized brands and uses ingredients from botanical sources including Jojoba oil, which is a native species to Arizona. Floratech also just received a new shipment of 10,000 empty bottles they can use to fill with hand sanitizer that will be donated to those who are most in need.
