This past summer, the world’s largest cities were greeted with protesters supporting Black Lives Matter, who were fed up with the systemic injustices faced by Black Americans at the hands of law enforcement. The protests began after the murder of George Floyd, and they still continue after countless other killings, shootings and acts of violence.

It’s important to continue to protest and support Black people and minority communities. Here’s an updated list of charities and organizations that are fighting against systemic racism. You can still support the movement by donating money to nonprofits, volunteering, sharing resources on social media and continuing the conversation with friends and family.

So it turns out that alcohol is good for more than just drinking . All kidding aside – which is a bit of a foreign concept for us – in these pressing times, SUDSATORIUM has decided it time to put our formulating might behind crafting water-free hand cleanser to help support our front line workers in the best way we know how: charity . With the purchase of every bottle of Hand Hooch, we will be donating 50% of the proceeds to the Red Cross Covid-19 Global Appeal, an emergency initiative designed to deliver assistance and support to communities affected, with an emphasis on those deemed most at risk . Money raised through the sale of Hand Hooch will enable the Red Cross in Canada, as well as Red Cross’s across the world, to support COVID-19 preparedness, response and recovery activities . Your purchase helps cover the packaging, ethanol, glycerin and hydrogen peroxide to the WHO guidelines and the labour it takes to craft and bottle, with all profits going to help support a monumentally important cause . Now let us tell you about this terrific product . A light, sprayable, non-drying, alcohol-based hand cleanser with purifying and hydrating properties for when soap and water are not available . Hand Hooch has been specially formulated in accordance with WHO guidelines and incorporates denatured ethyl alcohol at a concentration of 80% as its key active ingredient . Carefully formulated for ease of use and powerful cleansing while taking into account the hand’s delicate skin health. Organic glycerine acts as a powerful humectant that helps dry skin replenish natural hydration levels while protecting its fragile moisture barrier . We went one step further by incorporating moisturizing hyaluronic acid on top of that to further penetrate the skin for long-lasting and intensive hydration to help counteract the inherent natural drying effects of alcohol . Since the boozy woozy scent of an 80% alcohol solution tends to be rather off-putting for most, we went ahead and scented this bad boy with a blend of warming black pepper, sweetly-tart mandarin, herbaceous lavender, and earthy ho wood oils for a lightly lingering fragrance . Now available in a convenient 125ml size too
