PCA Skin has partnered with the Fashion And Business Resource Innovation Center (FABRIC) and its non-profit organization, Arizona Apparel, to fund and produce FDA-approved personal protection equipment (PPE) for medical professionals. Right now, medical professionals are facing a shortage in protective gear, but through the partnership of these beauty companies, masks will be produced to support those on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Until April 30, the skincare company plans on donating 100 percent of its proceeds from daily skincare mask sales at pcaskin.com, professional drop ship orders, and on participating e-tailer websites—including Dermwarehouse—to the Arizona Apparel Foundation.
PCA Skin CEO Joanna Zucker believes that supporting one another is the most important thing today in times like this. “The world is facing an unprecedented health emergency and we want to do our part to support the front-line healthcare providers,” says Zucker. “We are amazed by the work our Arizona neighbor company, Arizona Apparel Foundation, is doing to help alleviate the PPE shortages and hope this initiative will help further fund their efforts.”
Proceeds from sales reaching up to $10,000 will be used to help out FABRIC with the production of PPE at the Arizona Apparel production facility. Qualifying skincare masks include the Detoxifying Mask, Hydrating Mask, Revitalizing Mask, Purifying Mask and Pore Refining Treatment.
Angela Johnson, cofounder of FABRIC and Arizona Apparel Foundation, is grateful for the support that the company has received from PCA Skin. “We are thrilled to be recipients of PCA Skin’s generosity,” said Johnson. “This kind of thoughtful support from community partners is what will enable us to do our part in keeping our healthcare workers safe.”
PCA Skin is also encouraging customers to do more than just purchase skincare masks. To further support the cause, PCA Skin suggests donating directly to FABRIC. To learn more about PPC Skin and FABRIC’s efforts, or to make a donation to their GoFundMe, visit the FABRIC Blog.
