One of Kylie’s personal physicians, Dr. Thaïs Aliabadi, revealed on Saturday that Kylie Skin had just donated 6,000 pounds of the bottles to be distributed to different hospitals.
‘@kylieskin donated 6000 pounds of hand sanitizers to us yesterday. These pallets will soon be distributed to the hospitals and clinics around Los Angeles.
‘THANK YOU again @kyliejenner for your generous donation. The loving gift that keeps on giving’
Aliabadi shared a photo of the stylish bottle emblazoned with the Kylie Skin logo along with a message for first responders.
‘Dedicated, in partnership with Coty, to 1st responders supporting our communities.’ is written on the label underneath text which details the solution is ‘Alcohol Antiseptic 80%’.
She also posted a few snaps of a fork lift truck moving pallets of the bottles, illustrating Kylie’s generosity.

It was announced last month that her Kylie Cosmetics brand would be producing hand sanitizers for hospitals across California to help fight the spread of infection.
A representative for Kylie Skin confirmed that the hand sanitizer would be made by Coty’s factories and will not affect the production of Kylie Skin products.
The lip kit mogul has also donated $1 million to help supply protective wear to healthcare professionals fighting coronavirus on the front lines.
Meanwhile, Kylie has been named Forbes’ youngest self-made billionaire for a second year in a row.
Generous: Pictures are emerging of the truckloads of the bottles being delivered to people on the frontline fighting COVID-19.
The star made her huge fortune from her Kylie Cosmetics empire and, last March, she overtook Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to top the publication’s annual World’s Billionaires list.
Kylie has managed to maintain her substantial wealth, and as of November last year, she sold 51 per cent of her beauty brand to Coty Inc. for $600 million.
The deal, which wrapped in January, now values her business at an estimated $1.2 billion.
The sale and still having a 49 per cent share in the business enabled the 22-year-old reality star – who has two-year-old daughter Stormi with rapper Travis Scott – to retain her riches.
