Date added: 03/21/2020 Current update regarding stock and production ...
As far as our production studio, we maintain the same safety and cleanliness procedures as before, with the addition of not allowing anyone into the building at all, just immediate employees. Only two people here handle cosmetic production, and no one is allowed to be here if they are ill which has been a company rule from the very beginning. Gloves and masks or respirators are always used as needed (e.g., measuring powders or filling tubes, but not when labeling parcels), and unfortunately, we do not have large quantities remaining or unopened boxes, as those would have been donated to medical centers. You can continue to purchase products from indie cosmetics, perfume, and soap/skincare companies without concern of virus transmission. While it can survive for hours to days on some surfaces, there is no current evidence to suggest COVID-19 is transmittable via food, personal care products, or containers sent via mail or other parcel service. However, it is ideal to use caution when handling all deliveries and follow your local government advisories.
Update, 3/26: Our state's governor ordered all non-essential businesses to close, though this is not a business open to public anyway, so from today on there will be only one person, the company owner (who will have no human contact through all of April at least) handling all production, filling, and order packing. The office is in another location, and most of that side of work will be done there as usual by an employee, or remotely as needed. We don't anticipate slowdowns, but there will be increasing stock shortages of some products in the coming days or weeks.
