Join us to help fight COVID-19 and Support Virginia Small businesses!
The Virginia Craft Brewers Guild, Beer Wholesalers Association, Association of Cider Makers, Wineries Association, and the Manufacturers Association together with participating brewers, cider makers, distillers, wine makers and other participating small businesses formed the Virginia Hand Sanitizer Consortium to produce and provide hand sanitizer to support the response to the current COVID-19 complex emergency. As the coordinating entity, the Center for Applied Innovation, LLC serves as the coordinator for this important work.
To fight COVID-19 all authoritative medical experts require hand sanitizer products are in accordance with CDC and other federal regulatory requirements. The World Health Organization (WHO) formula is the recognized standard for these requirements and in meeting these standards.
At a minimum, hand sanitizer must be 80% alcohol. Further WHO recommends against gel-based and fragrance enhanced hand sanitizer as those additives could reduce its effectiveness in meeting these standards.
Hand sanitizer produced by the Virginia consortium
- Minimum of 80% alcohol using 100% organic ethanol from US producers.
- 100% compliant with CDC, WHO and requirements - ethanol and other ingredients laboratory tested to prevent impurities.
- Produced in FDA-certified facilities and formulated in strict accordance with the World Health Organization (WHO) formula.
- 100% "formulated in Virginia" using environmentally friendly 100% recyclable bottles by small businesses helping support our communities and keep Virginian's employed.
- Bottled using Virginia-made bottles and packed in Virginia-made boxes.
- The 500ml (16.9oz) bottle is versatile in its ability to accept the most common dispensing caps, water bottle tops, spray tops and bottle pumps most users already have around the home or office.
- A portion of proceeds from sales helps the group DONATE FREE hand sanitizer to medical, first responders and others.
