Irish manufacturer launches large-scale production of new hand sanitiser

Leading Irish manufacturer Cosmetic Creations have launched a new hand sanitiser, named Airmedica, in direct response to demand created by the coronavirus. The Cork and Mayo-based company is mobilising to deliver up to 2.5 million units, at up to 80,000 units per week, effective immediately.

Orders have already been confirmed for 40% of the potential units. Cosmetic Creations is the only manufacturing company in Ireland, which due to its state-of-the-art equipment and output capacity, can deliver to this scale and timeframe.

Aiden Corcoran, Owner and CEO of Cosmetic Creations, said: “We have been contacted by both the public and private sectors, to deliver a high volume of hand sanitisers with a short turnaround time. Following recent investment in our Cork campus, we have expanded our capacity, and are working to meet this immediate need.

“We are fortunate to have an agile team, who have been hard at work, formulating and testing this product and ensuring we have the resources to manufacture and distribute, nationally and internationally.”

Cosmetic Creations, who, to date, has been a leading contract manufacturer of skincare and cosmetics products, has been expanding into the growing national pharmaceutical market. In recent months, the company has invested in advanced formulation and manufacturing technologies, significantly expanding their output capacity.

In November 2019, Cosmetic Creations announced 90 jobs were to be created between its operations in Cork and Mayo, following an investment of €7.5million into the company.

Shipping to more than 15 countries globally, clients include private label national brand names and Irish, the UK and European retail multiples.
