COVID-19 News / Amyris: Scale up in response to high need for hand sanitizer and wipe products
In March 2020 Amyris, global science and technology company for pure, sustainable ingredients for the health and wellness, cleaning, beauty and flavors and ragrances markets, announced the launch of a new, safe and clean Pipette Baby branded hand sanitizer – that can be used by everyone – to help combat COVID-19. Initial production of its hand sanitizer has started with Allure Labs as its contract manufacturing and packaging partner.
Amyris has rapidly scaled its manufacturing and supply chain to respond to the strong demand received since the announcement was made. The company is also announcing the successful restocking of its baby wipes that was sold out across most sales channels. The company has increased production orders to meet the increased need of consumers.
Sam Dhatt, Founder and CEO of Hayward, California-based Allure Labs commented: "We are proud to support Amyris' important endeavor to more quickly meet the critical need for hand sanitizer. The Pipette hand sanitizer product is different because it moisturizes effectively using squalane, – important when you're using it very frequently. We look forward to fast tracking the availability of this important new product for all the communities in need."
