There are lots of charitable acts in beauty world right now so I thought I would highlight some of them so you can join in if you want to. First up, a beautiful L’Occitane candle, fragranced with honey is launching this month to raise funds for the RNIB, a UK sight loss charity that supports blind and partially sighted people. It costs £13 and gives 100% of proceeds to the RNIB.
Next up is Pantene, who from August, are supporting hair loss charity, Cancer Hair Care, with an upfront donation and limited edition bottles of Pantene Pro V Classic range from which 5p of each sale goes to Cancer Hair Care, the first charity to help women with hair loss from cancer treatments. Bear in mind, they sell a LOT of shampoo!
Then we have Maison D’Anu, the ethical nail range with a colour creation for the Household Cavalry Operational Casualties Fund who provide support to injured soldiers and also to the families of soldiers who have lost their lives. The shade name is Brave and replicates the red uniform of Life Guards of the Household Cavalry. Look out for this because it’s a great shade for a great cause. 50% of profits go to the HCOCF.
Finally, we have Simple, with some Limited Edition Simple Kind to Skin Facial Wipes helping to sponsor a MacMillan nurse with 10p from every pack going to MacMillan Cancer Support. Last year they raised £100,000 and hope that the L/E wipes will scoop up £50,000 – enough to sponsor a MacMillan nurse specialist for a year.
