For the past four years, organic makeup company Afterglow Cosmetics, has been dedicated to supporting breast causes across the United States. This year, the breast cancer organization recipient will be Young Survival Coalition which will receive $2 for every purchase of Afterglow’s Organic Lip Love Lipstick in MUSE.
The Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the premier international organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women and breast cancer. YSC works with survivors, caregivers and the medical, research, advocacy and legislative communities to increase the quality and quantity of life for women diagnosed with breast cancer ages 40 and under.
“The work that the Young Survival Coalition is doing to encourage action, advocacy and awareness of breast cancer in women under 40 years old is vital. The Afterglow Team is thrilled to offer our support through the sale of a truly fabulous lipstick shade, MUSE” said Kristin Adams, CEO and founder of Afterglow Cosmetics.
Breast cancer in young women may count for a small percentage of total cases, but the impact of the disease effects more than 250,000 women living the United States, who have been diagnosed with breast cancer under the age of 40. Approximately 10,000 more young women will be diagnosed in the next year.
Young women facing this disease are faced with different challenges associated with their young age. Many women are unaware they are at risk of developing breast cancer. Additionally, without an effective screening tool for women under 40, diagnoses is usually made at a later stage of the disease.
The Afterglow Difference: Luxurious, professional grade makeup without chemicals or gluten is an issue close to the heart of Adams. Afterglow’s full makeup line is also talc free, GMO free, carmine free, bismuth oxychloride free, paraben free, lake dye free, FD&C dye free, cornstarch free, mineral oil free, nano free, and petro-chemical free. All of the ingredients used are fully disclosed on their website. Afterglow’s products are infused with certified organic botanicals and antioxidant free-radical fighters to prevent the destructive impact of pollution on the skin. Women of all skin types and needs, from the beauty junkie focused on her color fix, to those who are far too sensitive to wear most cosmetics love the quality and benefits of Afterglow Cosmetics.
