La Roche-Posay is proud to contribute to this effort and its teams are very proud to be one of the key contributors to the L'Oréal Group's Worldwide Coronavirus Solidarity Plan. As such, the international La Roche-Posay brand, housed in France, is mobilized to produce millions of hand sanitizers at its international plant to answer to the dramatic hand gel shortage, and distribute them around the world.
In conjunction with L’Oréal Canada’s local Solidarity Plan, La Roche-Posay in Canada will donate hand sanitizing gels to Canadian hospitals as well as other health and charitable organizations for women in need. Furthermore, upon several requests from nurses and doctors, the brand will also be donating them Cicaplast hand creams and moisturizers in order to end their suffering from repetitive and daily use of hand sanitizers. We have tremendous admiration and gratitude for all the outstanding work that healthcare professionals are currently doing.
With 65% Ethanol, the formula kills harmful bacteria & germs, and is tested under dermatological control, fragrance-free and contains glycerin to help with the drying effect of alcohol.
Helping our community
In addition to the donation of hand sanitizing gels to frontline workers, we’re proud to help people reduce their risk of contamination by making our hand sanitizer gels available for purchase in drugstores at MSRP $5,99 (250ml available April) and MSRP $3,99 (75ml available June).

We are all in this together!

Information from Health Canada
One of the best ways to prevent the spread of infection is to wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When that is not an option, use effective Health Canada-approved hand sanitizer that has an alcohol concentration of at least 60%. For other prevention tips, consult the Government of Canada's About Coronavirus factsheet.
Health Canada recommends using only hand sanitizers that have been authorized for sale in Canada. Product labels for authorized hand sanitizers will have either a Natural Product Number (NPN) or Drug Identification Number (DIN). Health Canada has published a list of authorized hand sanitizers, which is updated daily.
