Argan oil-based skin care company wins Ladies Home Journal “Do Good” Award
We recently received an award from the Ladies’ Home Journal for our Do Good efforts. Here’s the article… Thank you LHJ for recognizing our work with your “Do Good” seal of approval! We also congratulate the other winners, Avon, Hershey and Lands’ End
Organic skincare company Four Truffles may be a small business, but founder Ana Soriano has made a huge commitment to giving back. For starters, she buys eco-friendly argan oil and shea butter for her bodycare products from female-owned cooperatives in North and West Africa. “Cultivating these ingredients is a major source of income for women there,” says Soriano. And even though her Palos Verdes Peninsula, California-based company is a start-up, Soriano donates 10 percent of net sales to local and international charities that help disadvantaged women and children. “It’s definitely a financial challenge for us to do this but I’m a big believer in paying it forward,” she says.
Four Truffles donates 10 percent of all product sales directly to women’s and children’s charities, you help every time you make a purchase. We also donate additional monies that we collect via promotional sales proceeds directly to a different charity every quarter.
We like to think of our Four Truffles customers as people who like to look good, do good and feel good. We believe beauty is found inside and out and that you deserve products that perform for you inside and out.
Every dollar adds-up, especially internationally, so a little goes a long way. We like to imagine that with your support, we’re making someone’s life just a little better today than it was yesterday. We are eternal optimists and our beliefs are strong even when the world may seem bleak.
In the United States we are a major supporter of Palos Verdes Junior Women’s Club whose outreach to women and children in crisis is tied to the local community.
Ana, our Founder, has been a member and hands-on activist with Palos Verdes Junior Women’s Club for years. She was drawn to their hands-on support and dedication to helping women and children in her own backyard. Throughout the year, they hold multiple fundraising activities with two major events during the Holiday season and Spring. The local outreach, assistance and benefits provide community enrichment, critical needs, crisis prevention and intervention, support, public services and scholarships that make a huge impact.
Bridges of Hope, South Africa | Visit the Bridges of Hope Website
Since hope is one of the “four truffles” it is only fitting that we chose this powerful organization that has brought hope for the sick, hope for the dying, hope for orphans, hope for widows, hope for gang members, hope for the young, and hope for the elderly with a model of community transformation that works!
We love that Bridges of Hope offers long‐term, self‐sustaining solutions to at-risk women and children who are suffering. We specifically donate money to sponsor orphans to attend boarding school as we believe that providing an education helps opens the door to a child’s hope and increased odds for a better future.
NLC, Haiti | Visit the NLC Website
We first discovered New Life to Children on Imagine This! TV and felt a tug on our hearts after reading their story. NLC is a grass roots movement that helps rescue children at risk of starvation and enslavement near Port-au-Prince, Haiti and provides them with a safe house.
Don Skow heads up a team who has been doing incredible work with the Haitians for nearly a decade. We reached out to Don and offered a donation of body care products as part of the basic essentials needed for the women and children. In a country already plagued with the nations highest poverty rates we feel that every effort helps. Our goal is to raise funds to help build homes for the families by donating the proceeds from our “Make Your Mark” promotion.
