We Stand for Change

by Beth Wischnia June 04, 2020

In times like these, it’s important to take a stand for the things that matter. Biossance stands for equality, we stand for change, and we stand alongside those who are hurting the most right now. Behind our brand is a community of people who are fighting for a better world. To support all those in this fight, Biossance is pledging $100,000 to the ACLU, the Minnesota Freedom Fund, Color of Change, and Black Lives Matter.

You can take a stand today by listening, learning and making your voice heard. If we don’t engage, things won’t change. It’s up to each one of us to be heard and to resolve to do better.

Take that first step…keep scrolling for resources, recommendations, and other ways that you can get involved today. Be a voice for change, because this change can’t come soon enough.

    My industry experience includes years as a beauty editor and leading content for a wide range of skincare and makeup brands. Those experiences led me to Biossance—I was introduced to the brand on an editor press trip in 2017 and instantly fell in love. I toured the labs, created my own 100% Squalane with essential oils, and noticed a dramatic difference in my skin by introducing clean products (especially the Vitamin C Rose Oil) to my regimen. I’m excited to be on this journey with Biossance and be at the forefront of clean beauty innovation.
