Skincare company derma e reported it would continue its mission to improve the health of children in need worldwide by participating in Sprouts Farmers Market's August Back to School Campaign in support of Vitamin Angels.
Throughout August, derma e will donate 25 cents to every time one of its six hydrating products are purchased.
“It is an honor to participate in this event,” says Jennifer Norman, vice president of marketing for derma e. “By working with Vitamin Angels and Sprouts, both compassionate companies that share our passion for health and wellness, we are making a significant impact by helping others all over the world live healthier, more fulfilling lives.”
Nearly one third of the world’s children under the age of five are deficient in vitamin A, leaving them with compromised immune systems that are unable to fight off illnesses including measles and respiratory infections, reported derma e.
Just one dose of vitamin A twice a year, at a cost of 25 cents per child, can reduce the risk of early signs of blindness caused by vitamin A deficiency by 68 percent and child mortality rates by 24 precent, according to the company. Vitamin Angels distributed vitamin A to 30 million children in about 45 countries in 2013.
“All it takes is 25 cents for Vitamin Angels to give one child the lifesaving vitamins he or she needs for an entire year,” reported derma e.
The products that must be purchased for donation are derma e Hydrating Cleanser, Hydrating Mist, Hydrating Serum, Hydrating Day Crème, Hydrating Night Crème and Hydrating Eye Crème.
