October marks Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA), a time to raise awareness and cancer care research. In addition to taking the time to do regular self-checks (for signs of change like lumps or rashes on the breast), you can also support the cause by picking up one or more of your favourite beauty products that have pledged to donate proceeds to BCA.
A firm supporter of the cause, Estée Lauder has long understood the importance of supporting life-saving research to put an end to breast cancer. In fact, Estée Lauder’s late founder Evelyn H. Lauder co-created the Pink Ribbon and launched The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Campaign three decades ago in 1992.
This year, in support of BCA, the brand’s best-selling serum that is beloved for its rejuvenating properties underwent a millennial pink facelift. 20 per cent the proceeds from the iconic serum will go to Estée Lauder Companies’ BCC partners in Singapore, the Breast Cancer Foundation (BCF) and Singapore General Hospital (SGH)
Available at all Estée Lauder stores island-wide (excluding Sephora), Beautique by Ishopchangi and Lazada.
100 per cent of the proceeds from this pin will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation through June 2023.
