CA Member “Formula Life” Continues Support for Ukraine – Toronto Based Company Raises Funds and Ships Much Needed Supplies

Posted Date: 7-September-2022

CA member Formula Life and its owners Dmytro and Lilliana Dutka continue their efforts to raise funds and ship much needed supplies to Ukraine. Since Vladimir Putin’s Russia invaded Ukraine last winter, the Dutkas have organized and funded five shipments of medical supplies, soaps, shaving creams, and other needed hygiene products, as well as footwear and other clothing, that are much needed in Ukraine. They report that their shipments have successfully been able to get through to Ukraine and to be distributed where needed. These efforts have been much appreciated in Ukraine and they would like to thank their many customers and clients, industry colleagues, and friends who have been supporting them in this effort.

Lilliana, who was born and raised in Lviv, emigrated to Canada some thirty years ago where she met and married Dmytro whose parents immigrated to Winnipeg following the Second World War. After a career in banking, Dmytro joined with Lilliana, who is a pharmacist by profession, to found Formula Life in Toronto. The couple are proud and long-time members of Cosmetics Alliance.

The Dutkas are preparing future shipments as winter approaches.  Anyone wishing to make a contribution – either monetary or product – should contact Dmytro at
