SolaWave, a Black and LGBT-owned skincare line, has announced its new philanthropic efforts in celebration of both Pride Month and Juneteenth.
In a press release, the Los Angeles-based company announced that it was partnering with The Lavender Rights Project, Black & Pink National, and The Transgender District to raise money for these organizations. Their fundraising efforts will total $50,000.
“As an LBGTQ+ and Black-owned company, the month of June holds a deeply personal significance to our team,” said SolaWave co-founder Fatima Loeliger in the press release. “Philanthropy is a pillar of our brand and we are excited to give back in a meaningful way. We have a unique platform, and we want to use it to make a difference for our communities, both this month and year-round.”
To commemorate the occasion, the company is offering a limited edition of its signature Advanced Skincare Wand in a color that pays tribute to the original colors of the gay pride flag.
$15 from the sale of each of these Wands will go to the proposed philanthropic efforts.
The Wand uses science-based technology to provide microcurrent, red light therapy, facial massage, and therapeutic warmth. The Wand retails for $149, and you can get it here.
The limited-edition Wand for the philanthropic efforts, however, will only be available throughout the month of June.
Black & Pink also seems to be excited to be partnering with SolaWave for this new effort.
“This initiative comes at a time when we recognize and elevate movements to liberate and free LGBTQIA2S+ Black and Brown people, both in our communities and in carceral systems,” said Andrew Aleman, Black & Pink’s National Deputy Director of People Power & National Partnerships, in the press release announcement.
With an ethos of simplicity, SolaWave empowers its customers by offering holistic tools and products at an accessible price, ensuring that everyone–in every tone–can feel beautiful in their own skin.
