GIVING BACK

"MY MISSION IS TO ALIGN MY WORK WITH OTHERS WHO SHARE THE SAME VISION FOR A BEAUTY INDUSTRY FREE FROM ANIMAL CRUELTY, THE EXPLOITATION OF WOMEN WHILE AT THE SAME TIME CARING FOR OUR PLANET"

One of the areas of the beauty industry that is often overlooked is the minority workers, many of them Women behind some of the most precious ingredients that we have all come to love and cherish. Ingredients such as Shea Butter, Marula Oil, Argan Oil, Coconut Oil and Moringa Oil are often produced by workers who are not represented within a cooperative. Purchasing through cooperatives helps these developing regions also profit from the purchase of their oils and further helps develop their communities.

I also realize that these minority workers mainly Women need to educate the future Women of their communities. By helping to educate the girls of regions such as Morocco and Africa we can make a small but impactful difference in the communities and lives of these hard-working Women.

SUPPORTING UNDER EDUCATED WOMEN WITHIN THE SUPPLY CHAIN

This year I have made donations to Education For All Morocco and CAMFED, both of these organizations focus on improving the lives of the most vulnerable girls and young women through the power of education.

Education For All Morocco focuses on the girls of Morocco's High Atlas Mountain Region where education is not easily accessed. They build and run high-quality boarding houses for girls ages 12–18. This education enables the girls to seek opportunity outside of their rural area. The donation goes towards school books, stationary and a uniform.

CAMFED a pan-African movement, revolutionizing how girls’ education is delivered. CAMFED has created a model that radically improves girls’ prospects of becoming independent, influential Women. 

"I'M GRATEFUL FOR THE WORK THAT HAS BEEN DONE WITHIN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY AND I'M COMMITTED TO LOOKING AT ADDITIONAL WAYS IN WHICH I CAN CONTINUE TO GIVE BACK AND BE PART OF A CHANGING INDUSTRY TOWARDS THE GREATER GOOD OF OUR EARTH, OUR ANIMALS AND MANKIND"
