Laboratoires Expanscience and its Mustela brand are manufacturing hand sanitizing gel to support health care professionals in France

Within the framework of the French government decree authorising the skincare and cosmetics industry to manufacture hand sanitising gel, Laboratoires Expanscience and its Mustela brand are using the expertise of their teams on its Production, Research and Development site in Eure-et-Loir, France, to support French health care professionals in their fight against the Covid-19 virus.

Laboratoires Expanscience and its Mustela brand are manufacturing hand sanitizing gel to support health care professionals in France

After having created and produced a hydroalcoholic gel formula, on Monday 16 March, Expanscience delivered fifty litres of hand sanitiser to the AP-HP Paris University Hospital Trust in France. The company also delivered hand sanitiser to firefighters in Epernon, the town where Expanscience’s only production site in France is located.

 

Thanks to its teams’ rallying and their efforts at its industrial site, Laboratoires Expanscience is actively working on increasing its hand sanitiser production to bolster its support of health care professionals. Production should reach 1500 litres per week from the end of March. As manufacturing hand sanitiser is an exceptional activity for Expanscience, production is dedicated first and foremost to supplying:

 

- French hospital and maternity establishments, centralised by the AP-HP Paris University Hospital Trust,

- French pharmacies who are Expanscience customers, and for which the company has put in place an ordering system for hand sanitising gel,

- those in health care in the Eure-et-Loir region, where the company’s only Research and Development and Production site is located since 1957.

 

"The health crisis affecting the world makes the need for positive interdependence and solidarity between all of us all the more obvious. We express our full support to every citizen and all of our health care professionals. We are committed to continuing our efforts at our level in the combat against Covid-19."  said Jean-Paul Berthomé, President of Laboratoires Expanscience.
