According to Mr. Duong Pham Quy Thanh – Operations Director of FIT Cosmetics Joint Stock Company, Dr.Clean Strawberry Flavor Hand Wash This product is trusted by many customers because of the fresh scent from strawberries and helps to clean many harmful bacteria, avoiding diseases transmitted by hands. Different from many common hand sanitizers, Dr.Clean Strawberry Flavor hand sanitizer in particular and Dr.Clean brand hand sanitizer in general have a neutral pH of 7.0, which is a solution for cleaning, moisturizing and not drying the skin of the hands, has conquered domestic consumers for the past 10 years. In particular, this is a product researched and developed by a pure Vietnamese enterprise whose quality and brand are comparable to global brands in the Vietnamese market. During the past 4th outbreak of Covid-19 epidemic, Dr.Clean branded products were donated by the enterprise to hospitals, isolation and treatment facilities… in “epidemic” areas such as Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Bac Ninh, Bac Giang, Hung Yen, Ha Tinh, etc., contributing a small part to support the medical team, and the F0 and F1 patients to protect themselves, thereby controlling and repelling the epidemic.
Recently, there are a number of products with rare problems that occurred during the production process, so the enterprise has implemented early recall of products, changed new products, donated more products to consumers and stores; conducted overall inspection of production and distribution stages. Simultaneously, samples were taken at the factory to be tested at an independent center, to have the most objective view of the product’s quality to report to the Drug Administration (Ministry of Health).
