These gels will be delivered free of charge to French health authorities.
“Through this initiative, LVMH intends to help address the risk of lack of product in France and enable a greater number of people to continue to take the right action protect themselves from the spread of the virus,” the statement reads. “LVMH will continue to honour this commitment for as long as necessary, in connection with the French health authorities.”
