This March, 10% of all purchases from the Swissline webshop will be donated to Momentum Foundation – a Swiss non-profit organization dedicated to female empowerment, education and gender equality in Rwanda. These funds will support the development of the Sewing Center for Rwandan women.
Imagine being a teenage mother aged 14 to 20, living in a society where family support is non-existent and attending school is no longer an option. Simple human needs such as soap, food and basic health care for themselves and their children are missing. However, thanks to the ongoing support of Momentum Foundation and Swissline Cosmetics, approximately 90 of these women living in the district of Musanze have access to a community where they can learn to sew, have childcare they can trust while they build a new life path and their medical needs are covered. Suddenly, the future appears brighter and empowerment is powerful.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
Momentum is “A community of diverse and enthusiastic citizens who believe that nothing can stop those with education and the desire to achieve. Our ambition is to give back and change a society that worships money and power to one that values compassion and generosity. We believe that one small action can make a huge difference”
Educating women is essential in breaking the cycle of poverty and your Swissline Skincare purchase this March 2020 will help support this project. In selecting which products to consider, we are big fans of their new Intelligent Skincare range where transformation can indeed be found in a bottle. If you were to chose three products to begin with, consider the following INTELLIGENT SKINCARE range:
Resurfacing Water. A perfect night-time toner consisting of 10% glycolic acid that will eat away dead skin cells, help retain moisture and speed up cell turnover. The next morning, you will see a visible glow to your skin that will kickstart your confidence that day!
Essential Serum. To moisturize skin without making it feel greasy, this serum is truly essential. It is formulated to balance the pH of the skin by increasing natural sebum for those with dry skin and regulating the sebum production for those with oilier skin.
Smart Cream. This anti-aging ‘water-cream’ formula is light and hydrating offering non-stop moisture for tired skin, frequent travelers and party-goers. The potent ingredient, Madecassoside®, is derived from the plant Centella asiatica which is also known as “tiger herb,” which is deeply hydrating and Swissline was the first Swiss brand to bring this active ingredient to the skincare market to soothe the sensation of dryness left by peelings, lasers and dermabrasion.
Happy International Women’s Day!
