Shop For A Cause: International Women’s Day

Giving back.

If you’re planning a beauty purchase this International Women’s Day, why not make it one that will benefit a female-focused charity or cause?

Here are three brands getting involved this 8 March.

The L’Occitane Foundation has been working to promote women’s leadership in Burkina Faso since 2006. This year the brand has launched a new apricot-scented edition of its “Solidarity Balm,” a shea butter-infused balm designed for everyday use.

A total of 100% of the sales proceeds will be directed towards educational, finance and entrepreneurial focused programs supported by the foundation.

Cruelty-free beauty brand Winky Lux, which caused a sensation last month with the launch of its new coffee-scented makeup collection, is donating 20% of its 8 March sales proceeds to The Global Connections For Women Foundation.

The non-profit focuses on helping women and girls in underserved global communities to achieve success.

Earlier this month, Elizabeth Arden unveiled a red lipstick in collaboration with Reese Witherspoon, with the aim of championing women’s issues. The lipstick, a limited-edition of the brand’s signature “Red Door Red” colour, is signed by the Oscar-winning actress and forms part of the cosmetic giant’s new “March On” campaign celebrating women’s achievements.

All global sales proceeds from its sales will be donated to UN Women.

Happy International Women's Day
