To our community:
Black lives matter. It’s worth repeating—until the day that it’s so deeply understood and internalized that it never needs to be pointed out again. There’s a lot of work to be done to get there, and progress will require a sustained commitment.
As a team we stand and act in solidarity with protestors and activists in the fight against systemic and institutionalized racism. We’ve made donations to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Black Girls Code, and we’re continuing our ongoing support for programs that seek to level the playing field for young people of color so that our next generation of leaders will better reflect the true diversity of our society.
As a brand, inclusion will remain at the heart of everything we do. Our commitment to smarter skincare for all was born out of a desire to support individuals—regardless of race or place or gender—through safer skincare that reflects their unique needs. As our small business grows, we’ll continue to rely on diverse voices and perspectives in achieving this mission.
Below, you’ll find a list of organizations accepting donations. Please join us in the fight for equality.
