As you know from previous posts, I am a HUGE fan of Dermalogica. Their products are fabulous, and I’m so intrigued and inspired by founder Jane Wurwand’s story. Now there’s another reason for me to rave about Dermalogica to my friends, and this one comes from the heart.
This year, Dermalogica helped to fund FITE, which is a global empowerment platform powered by Kiva.org, the nonprofit leader in microfinance, that is designed to foster Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship for women in the developing world. View the video below to see how it works…
Dermalogica has invested all the research and development to make FITE possible. From supporting creation of the platform, to being the first partner to create a retail connection with its FITE products, to rallying its tribe of over 100,000 successful women entrepreneurs worldwide to join FITE, Dermalogica has helped make the vision of FITE a reality.
So here’s how we, as consumers, can help (and it doesn’t cost us anything but time, because we’d be buying the products anyway) -
All you need to do is buy a Dermalogica FITE product, go online with your promotional code which gives you $1USD and choose the country, city and type of business you would like to support. Then you will receive an email from FITE telling you who your money has gone to and then you can follow their journey as they set up their business. The products that are currently for FITE are Daily Microfoliant, PreCleanse, Skin Hydrating Booster, Total Eye Care and Intensive Eye Repair.
When you’re going to be purchasing the fab Dermalogica products anyway, take some extra time to help women in need.
