Heather And Terry Dubrow Address Backlash Over Selling Expensive Bottles Of Hand Sanitizer During Coronavirus Pandemic!

Heather Dubrow and her husband, Dr. Terry, Dubrow have come under fire for selling small bottles of their own brand of hand sanitizer for $28.95 on ShopHQ. The former Real Housewives of Orange County star pitched their product on the home-shopping channel.

However, the couple got slammed on social media for their appearance. “You and your husband are PRICE GOUGING. You are selling [6 ounces] of hand sanitizer for $28.95. You and your hubby get to [stay in a] $21 million home, while you take advantage of people’s fear. Shame,” one user tweeted, according to Page Six.

Another wrote, “More about the Benjamins than helping Americans.”

Reports have pointed to hand sanitizer as one of the items being egregiously marked up in price in the U.S. during the health crisis.

However, the Dubrows are defending the high price for their product and reveal that portion of the proceeding is going to aid several organizing during the coronavirus pandemic. Heather told the publication that $35,000 had already gone to California’s Second Harvest Food Bank.

“We’ve already donated thousands … to people working on the front line of this pandemic,” she told Page Six. “And we’re giving a portion of the proceeds of our sanitizer to food banks — there are kids who are not getting anything to eat — and to health-care professionals.”

Terry claims the sanitizer has been developed for “persistence,” and that “it’s the same technology we used in the room where we prep patients.” The product is expensive, he claimed, as currently the ingredients are “impossible to find” during the pandemic and “three times the normal cost … We’ve scorched the Earth looking for them.”

The sanitizer is made in the US by Celmark International, and they have to ensure workers are kept 6 feet apart, reports the publication.

Heather added, “As a mom of four, I’m looking at when we re-emerge and the kids go to school or camp. I wanted to build a product that helps people in a new wave of normalcy.”
