Daniel Veitch has returned home to Lockerbie from Glasgow University and is working with hairdresser mum Sandra Odoh.
She said: “I have been making the hand sanitisers and hand balms.
“I have been donating my organic hand balms to carers and nurses as I knew how dry and sore their hands were from constantly washing and sanitising them.
“I’ve had to put my business as a hairdresser, barber, holistic therapist and educator on hold so I wanted to do something helpful for my community.”
Sandra is herself recovering from corona symptoms so Daniel stood in to make a batch and between them the pair have now produced over 100 bottles, each with a 99 per cent proof alcohol solution.
Friend Jacqui Johnstone is now organising the distribution.
Sandra added: “I would like to say that the sanitisers and balms were not made for any profit but the community have been donating money towards buying more ingredients so I would like to say thank you to them.”
“Thank you all for your patience.”
