It’s October and that means that it’s National Breast Cancer Awareness month. During the month there will be plenty of shopping opportunities to make your purchase count towards a larger donation in recognition of the cause; however, many of them are for products which are not good for you or the environment.
Thankfully, that’s not the case with hellomellow and their support and partnership with Boarding 4 Breast Cancer. During the month of October, hellomellow will be donating 5% of their sales from the balance line to B4BC’s survivorship fund. The fund, established in 1996, is youth-focused breast cancer prevention and education foundation that encourages women to lead an active lifestyle and do self-breast exams for early detection.
hellomellow is a company that shares these same values. Their products are synthetic fragrances-free, contain no artificial colors, no sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, or fillers. Plus the line is cruelty-free, hand-made, produced in the USA, and created by massage therapist Tracy Feldstein.
Feldstein combined the richness of avocado and mango with essential oils for an indulgent and pure spa-like experience at home. I received a sample of their balance body butter to try out the scent for myself and share it with you. The balance scent is so light and refreshing. It’s a delicious mix of bergamot, orange and chamomile in a super creamy base. To use the body butter, warm a small amount in your hands and massage it into your skin wherever dryness is a problem. It appears oily at first on the skin, but it absorbs beautifully in just a few minutes.
hellomellow offers balance as well as 8 additional scents in body and lip butters, body scrubs, body oil, bath salts, and energy shifting sprays. Something to heal your soul and soothe away the griminess of the day.
I’m excited about discovering this line of quality and natural body and skincare products and I’ll be considering them for gift giving this holiday season. I’m convinced if more people knew the dangers that chemicals applied to our skin cause, they’d be more open to using delicious products like hellomellow!
