Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2007
Lavera and its Laveré customers are giving $4,000 to fund breast cancer research and awareness programs, following a pledge to donate a portion of October's online sales of its Lavere organic anti-aging skin care products generated during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Ulrike Jacob-Dewor, CEO of Lavera Skin Care North America Inc., said,"The result was a great response from our customers, a number of whom are breast cancer survivors and buy our products because of our commitment to keep our products totally natural - free of parabens, petro-chemicals, and other harmful synthetic ingredients". "And, because November is also our 20 year anniversary, we decided to match our customer's generosity of $2,000 and double the donation amount!"
Lavera has donated $2,000 to the American Cancer Society and $2,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors, to support the fight against breast cancer.
Lavera, the natural cosmetics and organic skin care market leader in Europe, has over 250 products, all of which are free of any synthetic ingredients that may be harmful to long-term health.
Ulrike added, "Lavera is passionate about supporting causes and creating products that advocate healthy, positive living. Time and time again, consumers have voted with their dollars in support of organic skin care products and cosmetics."
Cathy, a breast cancer survivor and customer from New York says of Lavera: "As a breast cancer survivor and advocate, I work with an organization in upstate New York that hosts programs to educate woman about dangerous ingredients in their cosmetics. I was pleased to receive affirmation that Lavera products are free from parabens, synthetic preservatives, fragrances, emulsifiers and petroleum. I've been using Lavera products for more than a year and can recommend them personally to women looking for safe alternatives for themselves and their daughters!"
