Beauty that Gives Back

It’s true - beauty is more than just skin-deep. While you're making yourself more beautiful, you can also feel good about buying products that donate some, or all, of proceeds to charity. Here are some beauty brands that are paying it forward and giving back.


There are two causes Kiehl’s is supporting this year – Keep a Child Alive and No Kid Hungry. Buy the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate and 100 percent of the profits will benefit Keep a Child Alive, a foundation co-founded by Alicia Keys in 2003. Opt for the Crème de Corps Grapefruit Whipped Body Butter and 100 percent of net profits, up to $100,000, will benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.

Paul Mitchell

bareMinerals and The Keep A Breast Foundation are two brands with a purpose-to inspire and empower women. The Keep A Breast Foundation is a leading youth-focused, global, nonprofit breast cancer organization, educating people about prevention and early detection, and providing support to those impacted by cancer. bareMinerals has teamed up with The Keep A Breast Foundation to raise breast cancer awareness. The purchase of this limited-edition collection helps support bareMinerals' $25,000 donation to The Keep A Breast Foundation.


The original M.A.C. Viva Glam girl is back – the electric RuPaul, the first face of Viva Glam in 1994, returns with her sexy signature burgundy red lipstick and a new lipglass, with every cent of the selling price going toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
