On the Prowl: Spotlight on Beauty Products That Give Back

This fierce Chantecaille Tiger in the Wild palette ($78) is laser-etched with an image of a Bengal tiger. If you buy one, five percent of all proceeds go to Traffic, a non-profit organization that helps protect tigers and other threatened species.

Clap your hands for Peacekeeper Paint Me Grateful nail polish ($10 approximately, Drugstore.com and Whole Foods). Peacekeeper gives back to organizations that prevent sex trafficking and bring education to women across the globe.

All sales of Lush Charity Pot lotion ($5 to $20.95, depending on the size) support a passel of grassroots organizations. This moisturizer quenches thirsty skin like nothing else and is one of the company's perennial bestsellers.

Thanks for writing about this! I work for a company called Uptown Liz, which was created in memory of the founder’s 28 year old sister, Liz, who died from breast cancer. Uptown Liz (www.uptownliz.com) promotes products from companies whose proceeds go to different charitable organizations. You can shop on this one-of-a-kind website by charitable cause or product category, knowing that every time you make a purchase you are making a difference. There are many great art, clothing, jewelry, house wares, beauty and eco-friendly products (just to name a few) that benefit charities all over the world.
