Beauty for a Cause: Breast Cancer Awareness Products 2011
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we love how many beauty companies are getting involved! While there are many more products supporting the cause than listed below, here are a few companies supporting a variety of BCA programs that we caught wind of and wanted to spread the word about.
DECLÉOR has launched DECLÉOR Cares for the month of October to support Cancer & Careers, a program of Cosmetic Executive Women Foundation for the fifth consecutive year. DECLÉOR will donate 10% of the net proceeds of its Aroma Coffrets sold during the month of October. We love how these kits offer a complete skincare regimen adapted by skin concern: Hydrating, Soothing, Nourishing and Anti-Aging. Each set features a full retail size Aromessence™ Serum and complimentary Day Cream and Night Balm in travel sizes, each set will also come complete with an informational DVD that provides details on the sourcing of essential oils, the creation of Aromessence™ and the application techniques of DECLÉOR’S signature serums.

In line with the spa-like lifestyle, Tocca has a special laundry detergent to keep your delicates looking just that – delicate. During the month of October, TOCCA will be donating 15% of its Laundry Delicate collection to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. We adore the cute packaging, the scent of pomegranate tiare flower, and how it gives your special delicates the caring treatment they deserve. Use it on your lingerie, hosiery, intimate apparel, silks, cashmeres and bed linens either via hand-wash or the delicate cycle on your washing machine. TOCCA Laundry Delicate Collection, $15.
Sothy’s Beauty Garden
We tried out a few products in the Beauty Garden® line and were pleasantly surprised. Not only do the products work and smell divine, the line is Ecocert® Certified, guaranteeing natural and safe cosmetics containing ingredients from organic agriculture. The collection also carries the Cosmebio® certification, which is the highest level of certification available for skincare products.

For six weeks beginning October 1st, the certified skin care collection will be supporting this effort, which gives teens with cancer the ultimate prom experience and to celebrate their life and their youth in an environment of acceptance and camaraderie.
