Hain Celestial Brands and CARE Support Little Girls Education!

Press Sample


Did you know that in Guatemala, only 60% of students who start first-grade complete sixth grade?

While it’s a sad reality, Hain Celestial personal care brands, Alba Botanica®, Avalon Organics® and JĀSÖN®,  have partnered with CARE.org to do their part in raising that statistic!  Their Empower Her Through Education campaign provides indigenous Guatemalan girls with access to primary education while helping to build self-esteem and leadership skills.

Each brand has one limited edition shampoo that features a drawing from girls of the Qach’Umilal Girls’ Education and Leadership Project along with more information on how consumers can get involved! The Qach’Umilal Girls’ Education and Leadership Project has made significant progress in empowering girls to be more confident by emphasizing music, art and relationship-building.  These key factors are what drive the Qach’Umilal Girls’ Education and Leadership Project to inspire change and enable girls to follow their dreams.

The brands have chosen their best-selling products to display the meaningful limited edition labels to honor this year’s program. The Alba Botanica®, Avalon Organics® and JĀSÖN® brands have donated $50,000 directly to the local schools through this partnership, going directly to support the 200 girls in the Qach’Umilal program.

    I have always been a fan of Jason products. I think all three of these sound like awesome products and I am excited to try these.

    What a great company and story behind this. While I don’t use shampoo anymore I might actually suggest the shampoo to someone in my life that I know who has thinning hair .

  3. Cassie @ Be Forever Healthier says

    I use Jason toothpaste but haven’t tried any of their other products. Also like the look of the other two. This is an awesome initiative – thanks for sharing!

  4. Allison @neversaydiebeauty says

    Celestial used to be my client ages ago. We used to visit Moe who started the company in Boulder CO, and he’d take us to the Mint Room. Fun. I was glad that Celestial joined with Hains (except they wrecked the Celestial packaging), and I’m a fan of all three of these personal care/skincare brands. I’m glad they’re supporting such an important initiative, girls’ education in places where girls don’t get a chance. Bravo!

  5. I am loving the new packaging. I love kids art and so I may be a bit biased. I hope the merger is a good one.

  6. Wow, that is sad. I didn’t know that. I love that a company like this exists to help where it’s needed.
