We launched our Artists Giving Circle as a way to support our programming and widen our circles. We create a win-win opportunity for cross-promotion of artists, a way to grow a base of conscious consumers, give access to markets and economic opportunity for our international artisans, and ultimately benefit the children we serve creating future creative leaders.
Jocelyn volunteered many moons ago with an event in our beginnings. She reached out when she saw our environmental focus on our consumption and waste. As an environmental health and wellness advocate, she wanted to give to our mission, help expand our circles, and inform others about healthier options in personal care products for adults, and children.
Jocelyn Rose Settle is a wellness advocate for Beautycounter, a B-Corp with a mission to get safer personal care products into the hands of everyone. With a background in Yoga, massage therapy and opera, the clean beauty movement was a natural fit.
Jocelyn 's journey as a Beautycounter Wellness Advocate began when she realized she had been unknowingly applying toxic chemicals to her daughter's sensitive eczema prone skin. We all deserve safer skincare and cosmetics, and Beautycounter is working at the level of Washington DC and Parliament to that end.
During the month of April, in honor of Earth Day and spring!... all proceeds from your Beautycounter orders will go directly to Children Inspiring Hope. (that is approximately 30% of your purchase). Now is a such a great time to make a clean swap with your skincare and makeup, while simultaneously supporting the planet, people and our children in Ghana.
Please feel free to connect with Jocelyn HERE to learn more about the company, the mission for clean beauty as well as which Beautycounter products would be best for you and your family.
