October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and by shopping select beauty products, you can support cancer research programs in their mission to prevent and find a cure for the disease that impacts the lives of so many loved ones.
According to the American Cancer Society, African American women have the highest incidences of Breast Cancer, and this year, 33, 840 Black women are expected to develop the illness. While survival rates have increased over time, mortality rates are 40 percent higher for women of color than in White women, and a few beauty brands are committed to changing this narrative.
Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when you shop the products below, a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to Breast Cancer research. If you’re looking for ways to donate to the cause, then start with the charitable beauty picks below.
