"When someone we love has cancer, we are all affected — husbands, wives, mothers and fathers, sisters, brothers and friends. This is our effort in the fight against cancer," reads a quote from Ralph Lauren in a press email. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, Ralph Lauren Fragrances is just one of the many brands offering breast cancer awareness beauty products, and donating 100 percent of proceeds to organizations and non-profits to boot.
For those looking to shop charitably, you have your pick this month. Popular brands like Olay, jane iredale, AERIN, and more are all offering products that give back — meaning you have options ranging from perfume to lip balm to skin care. “My aunt, Evelyn H. Lauder, dedicated her life to raising breast cancer awareness," noted AERIN's Aerin Lauder in the product description of its new BCRF Amber Musk and Rose Lip Conditioner Set, which benefits the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. "I am proud to be supporting BCRF in her honor, continuing her mission to find a cure in our lifetime."
Below, six brands (and products) dedicated to raising awareness and giving back this October.
As one part of The Estee Lauder Companies' Breast Cancer Campaign, Rodin Olio Lusso is donating 100 percent of its limited-edition Pink Lip Balm's purchase price — up to $10,000 — to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation starting Sept. 1 and ending June 30, 2020.
100 percent of the proceeds from Olay's new (and limited-edition) Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer Pink Ribbon + Single Use Refill will be donated to the detection and prevention non-profit Bright Pink.
