We are a proud supporter and advocate for the Breast Cancer Fund (BCF) in their goal of eliminating the 50% of breast cancer cases that are not genetic -- i.e. those that can be traced to environmental factors. We feel a strong resonance with the dedication and the mission of the BCF, which 'is the leading national organization focused on identifying the causes of breast cancer and preventing the disease.'
Since 2002, we have donated more than $115,000 in support of BCF. This year, we have taken our support a step further by announcing Avalon Organics Heroes Challange - a $50,000 matching grant to benefit the Breast Cancer Fund.

The BCF is a founding organizational member of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, which 'calls on all cosmetics and personal care companies to protect our health by phasing out the use of chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects and other health concerns in every market they serve.' These ingredients, which are banned in Europe, have been eliminated from our entire line of Avalon Organics Bath & Body care products, which exceed even European Union standards. We have also committed to reformulating our Lavender, CoQ10, Vitamin C and Alba product lines to remove parabens by the end of 2005.
Besides our commitment to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, we resonate with the broader environmental mission of the BCF, and our commitment to organics reflects this.
We encourage you to learn more about this visionary organization.
