Did you know? Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer affecting women in our country. According to Dr. Meneka Kumaran (MD) from Dr Tan and Partners, about 1 in 19 Malaysian women are at risk of this disease. On top of that, over 60% of women who do get breast cancer are between the ages of 40 to 60 years old. This is why it is so important for us to be aware and have regular breast checkups every year, because early detection can save lives. For Breast Cancer Awareness month this October, here are the beauty brands doing their part to support those in recovery.
Estée Lauder Pink Ribbon Collection
In 1992, Evelyn H. Lauder, the Senior Vice President of Estée Lauder Companies co-created the iconic Pink Ribbon we all know and love. Ever since, Estée Lauder has been spearheading this campaign every year and has raised over $73 billion to date. In turn, the funds raised are channeled into supporting 293 medical research grants for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. For this year’s campaign, Estée Lauder is housing their signature Advanced Night Repair serum in a limited edition metallic fuchsia pink bottle. Together with their limited edition Pink Perfection Lip Kit, the serum set comes with a pretty Pink Ribbon bracelet. Like their previous campaigns, 100% of this year’s proceeds will go into funding breast cancer beneficiaries in Malaysia.
