While October may get some of us excited for Halloween festivities, it is also, more importantly, Breast Cancer Awareness month, a time when countless organizations join together to raise awareness and funds for the second most common cancer among women across the globe.
Over the past several years, beauty brands such as Estée Lauder, which launched the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and June Jacobs, whose founder is a breast cancer survivor herself, have made a great effort to support this cause. And every year numerous companies release limited-edition products that also give us the opportunity to give back to this important mission.
To help you lend a hand this October, we’ve rounded up 18 products with proceeds going to support breast cancer research, patients, and survivors. For every product sold below, brands will donate anywhere from 20-100 percent of proceeds to this special cause.
