“As a global COVID-19 response partner, it’s our responsibility to help where we can amid the unparalleled crisis facing the communities where we live and work,” said KK Chua, President of Mary Kay Inc.’s Asia Pacific Region. “By distributing and donating hand sanitizer in the Asia Pacific region, we stand united in our support of those on the frontlines who continue to work tirelessly to minimize the spread of this ongoing pandemic.”

The global beauty brand will distribute thousands of units of hand sanitizer in the Asia Pacific region where Mary Kay operates to support frontline workers in hospitals, elderly living at home, healthcare systems, as well as community first responders at local schools. While every market is in a different stage of the COVID-19 response effort, the donation of this critical asset will impact the continuous effort to combat the virus. In the Asia Pacific region and on a global level, Mary Kay is supporting relief efforts through multiple channels including:

  • The Mary Kay China Charity Fund donated to the Amity Foundation (an independent Chinese social organization dedicated to public health, social welfare, disaster relief and other philanthropic undertakings) and made early contributions to COVID-19 relief efforts in Wuhan, China. Mary Kay China also donated nutrition, skincare and hand care products to frontline female health workers and volunteers.
