Its easy to get caught up in the excitement of buying gifts and party dresses in the run up to Christmas but its important to remember that not everyone is quite as fortunate. Here is our round-up of the fabulous beauty brands doing their bit (and helping us do ours) this Christmas.More
Skincare brand Dermalogica has teamed up with FITE (Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship) who are in partnership with Kiva, a non-profit organisation that gives micro-loans to budding entrepreneurs all over the world. Each purchase of Dermalogica’s best sellers like Daily Microfoliant, PreCleanse and Skin Hydrating Booster carries a $1 donation to women around the globe looking to make their way in business. Simply redeem the dollar online (details are in the pack) and chose the individual who you would like to receive your donation. Remember , this is a loan, so once that person has made a success of their venture they will pay the money back to Kiva and you then have the opportunity to re-loan it to another woman.
Chantecaille has teamed-up with the Marine Conservation Institute (MCI) to protect 10% of the world’s oceans by 2020. Three quarters of the world’s coral reefs are at risk as a result of over fishing, pollution and global warming. 5% of every sale of The Coral Reefs Palette, £73, (it’s beautiful and includes three eye shades and a blush), goes to the MCI to help them preserve 10% of the ocean’s ecosystems as “no take marine protected areas” - which essentially means that no marine life can be removed from the area.
Launching in Spring 2012.
