The best products supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2020
From Estée Lauder to Pop! Vinyl, these are the brands releasing specialty items to help fund research for breast cancer.
October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), which means that it's time to get talking about the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, approximately 20,000 Australians will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, making BCAM a great time to raise awareness.
In a show of support, a bunch of great brands have now stepped up to help spread awareness of the disease. Teaming up with major breast cancer charities, the below labels have released limited-edition products, with a portion of the proceeds to be donated to furthering education and research into breast cancer.
1. Pink Wonder Woman Pop! Vinyl
This adorable Wonder Woman is both a great addition to your Pop! Vinyl collection and the perfect gift for the warrior woman in your life.
The collectible has been made in conjunction with the Breast Cancer Awareness Pop! Vinyl Collection, which will see Funko donate US$25,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
If you're looking for a birthday present or thank you gift during the month of October, why not shop Interflora's National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) range?
The collection features six pink, limited edition floral arrangements, with 5% of the proceeds from each sale going to the NBCF to further contribute to breast cancer research.
3. Breathe Easy Australia NBCF mask
While COVID-19 cases may be falling here in Australia, face masks are an essential part of keeping our numbers low. To help you stay safe, Breathe Easy Australia has brought out a pink charity mask in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NCBF).
The washable cloth mask comes with four filter inserts and sees $10 from every purchase donated straight to the NBCF.
4. Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum
In support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Estée Lauder is once again selling a limited-edition pink iteration of its popular Advanced Night Repair Serum.
For every purchase of the anti-aging serum, Estée Lauder will donate 20% of the suggested retail price. The bottle also comes complete with a gorgeous pink and gold collectible bracelet to further support breast cancer awareness.
If it's time to upgrade your styling tools, be sure to check out GHD's new "Take Control Now" collection. In partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the brand has released two powder pink straighteners and a hair dryer to raise awareness of the importance of checking your breasts.
$20 from each product sold will be donated to help breast cancer charities across the globe.
In collaboration with breast cancer awareness charity Know Your Lemons, fashion retailer boohoo has launched a collection full of pyjamas, hoodies, underwear and eye masks.
Each piece from the range is designed to educate shoppers on the twelve signs of breast cancer and how to check their breasts. 100% of the profits from certain products from the line will also go to the Know Your Lemons foundation to support its work in increasing early breast cancer detection around the world.
For those still feeling the effects of winter, Aveda is now selling a pink edition of its Hand Relief Creme. The intensely moisturising formula is free from nasties and comes in a delicious cherry almond aroma.
At $47, the Hand Relief Creme is a little pricey, but with US$5 going towards cruelty-free breast cancer research through The National Breast Cancer Research Foundation, it's definitely worth the purchase.
To show its support for BCAM, hair care brand John Frieda has just launched a limited-edition bottle of its Frizz Ease Extra Strength Pink Serum. $2 from every sale will be donated to Breast Cancer Network Australia, which aims to support Australians affected by the disease.
Available at Priceline from 8 October, the concentrated smoothing serum is designed to transform dry and unruly hair into silky tresses, making it the perfect product to add to your summer arsenal.
Work and safety footwear brand Steel Blue Boots is continuing its thirteen-year fight against breast cancer through its Pink & Purple Boot collection.
For every pair of boots sold from the range, the brand donates $10 directly to Breast Cancer Care WA, which is an organisation that provides specialised breast care nursing, financial support and counselling to those affected by breast cancer.
