LGBTQ+ Ally Beauty Brands
Over the last few years we’ve seen many a beauty brand flash a rainbow over a palette and call it support for the LGBTQ+ community during Pride month but not all brands are true allies. Today I’m separating those who might be cashing in on Pride from the brands who are making a difference and highlighting those who are putting money where their rainbows are. Here are beauty brands who truly support the LGBTQ+ community. Rainbow packaging is cute but action is more powerful.
“For the last 18 years, Kiehl’s has honoured the vibrancy, diversity and artistry of the LGBTQ+ community, culminating in a joyful celebration during the Pride Parade.” Kiehl’s has been the official sponsor of NYC Pride for the past 9 years and have donated $100,000 to The Trevor Project
This year, Kiehl’s have partnered with Just Like Us to help eliminate LGBT+ bullying in schools and are donating £20,000 from sales of the Ultra Rich Face Cream.
The Ultra Rich Face Cream is £26 and £10 from each pot is donated to Just Like Us.
