Now more than ever, in the fight to end breast cancer, hope is at hand. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is dedicated to addressing the most common form of cancer in women worldwide. We think of the women we know and honor the women we don’t, but the road to a cure doesn’t stop here.
Thanks to research, breast cancer mortality rates have decreased by 41% since 1989.1 By contributing to this life-saving research, education and medical services, we can continue to pave the way towards a cure. That’s why every year during the month of October, we help support cruelty-free breast cancer awareness research with our limited-edition hand relief™ moisturizing creme.
This October, our hand relief™ features our signature shampure™ aroma and every time you purchase it, 50% of the purchase price will be donated to support cruelty-free research through the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF). Aveda is donating a maximum of $350,000 US to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, September 26, 2021 through June 30, 2022, or until supplies last.
Since 2001, we’ve raised close to $6.5 million through the BCRF. This mission of care is at the core of who we are. With every collection we create, we strive to make an impact that goes beyond the bottle, helps protect our planet and cares for all living creatures.
Discover how we’re doubling down on our commitment to this important cause this year and find out how you can get involved.
How our formula helps
Our limited-edition hand relief™ moisturizing creme with shampure™ aroma represents the helping hand that we can lend for breast cancer awareness. We begin this journey of care by using 100% vegan ingredients to create our must-have body care product. Plus, our most-loved shampure™ aroma features a calming blend of 25 pure flower and plant essences, including certified organic lavender, petitgrain and ylang ylang.
Hand care, although an essential step in body and self-care, often gets overlooked. In a time when hand washing and sanitizing are top priorities, our hands are drier than ever and in desperate need of some TLC.
Our 100% vegan limited-edition hand relief™ moisturizing creme with shampure™ aroma infuses skin with nourishment and intensely moisturizes to help soothe seriously dry hands. Using andiroba oil and other plant hydrators, our carefully crafted hand cream leaves your skin noticeably softer and smoother.
When you take home plant-powered nourishment, you help support life-saving, cruelty-free breast cancer research. Everyone knows someone affected by breast cancer, and each purchase of our limited-edition hand relief™ moisturizing creme can make a difference.
This way, you can turn self-care into supporting the search for a cure.
