Irish personal protective skincare brand expands cruelty-free, vegan hand care range with two new products

Airmedica, the Irish personal protective skincare brand has today expanded its hand care range to include two new products, Airmedica Cleanse hand wash and Airmedica Protect hand cream. Made in Ireland in Cork and Mayo, the Airmedica range uses over 80% Irish ingredients. The range, which includes Airmedica’s flagship Sanitise hand sanitiser, is vegan and cruelty-free. Airmedica has been awarded membership of Guaranteed Irish and the full range is available online at www.airmedica.ie/shop. 

Launched in March 2020 in response to demand created by Covid-19, Airmedica this week produced its 2.5 millionth unit of hand sanitiser, which is used by the HSE for its frontline staff. 

Commenting on today’s launch of the expanded range, Breffney O’Dowling-Keane, Market Development Manager said: “Airmedica’s product range is wholly-Irish owned. We are delighted to launch our three-step Hand Shield process of Cleanse hand wash, Sanitise hand sanitiser and Protect hand cream, which is the first of its kind made in Ireland. We are so proud that our hand sanitiser was used by frontline workers throughout the pandemic. We are now expanding the range, so that people can protect their hands and their health while supporting Irish. 

“We strive to be even more Irish and we are continuously searching for further ingredients sourced in Ireland. 

“With more and more products entering the market, consumers need to be sure what they are buying is effective. All Airmedica products contain the highest quality of ingredients and meet Irish and European quality standards.”

Since launching, Airmedica has donated over 10,000 units of hand sanitiser to local hospices, hospitals and charities, including Marymount Hospice, Crumlin Children’s Hospital, Mayo Roscommon Hospice and Cork Penny Dinners.

Airmedica is manufactured by its parent company Cosmetic Creations in Mayo and Cork. Shipping to more than 15 countries globally, clients include private label national brand names and Irish, the UK and European retail multiples. Airmedica Sanitise hand sanitiser is also available in selected Tesco and Supervalu stores nationwide.
