Causematics.ca‘s objective is to help women with breast cancer right now. Not later, not someday, but today. “Because the rent is due. Groceries need to be bought. Car payments. Hospital parking. Lost wages during treatment and recovery.” reads the website. The proceeds of the site’s sales benefit breast cancer patients through the Canadian Breast Cancer Support Fund.
What do they sell? The site’s name says it all. causemetics.ca sells 100 per cent natural beauty products that are free of toxins and carcinogens. The site has partnered with major skincare and cosmetics companies to create a collection of products called Today. For instance, the Today Minimalist Hand & Body Cream is a collaboration with Pure and Simple, while the 100% Natural Soap is by Consonant for Causemetics. There’s even a botanical perfume by Evoke The Elements.
Why we love it
Not only are you buying natural, toxin-free products from Causemetics, but you’re getting quality products from brands you already trust. And of course, the proceeds go to an extremely noble cause. While cancer research is always a worthy cause, many people don’t realize what the day-to-day struggles are like for those living with cancer. Canada’s health care system pays for most treatments, but just because you can’t work doesn’t mean that your mortgage doesn’t have to be paid, or that you don’t need to feed your family. And disability payments only cover so much. As the people at Causemetics say, “the cost of cancer is anything but benign.”
Treat your body with respect by buying products that won’t make you sick and support those who are sick. It’s a wonderful idea and a cause we should all support during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
