Why It Matters

Why We Give

Skin Health Access For All Families

"A good skincare routine helps to keep common baby problems — such as diaper rash, cradle cap and eczema — at bay. Basic products, such as moisturizers, soaps and diaper cream are not readily accessible to BHCHP patients but truly make a difference when it comes to disease control and infection prevention."
~ Dr. Jennifer Tan, Pediatric Dermatologist at Harvard Medical School and EllaOla Scientific Advisory Board Member

Providing essential baby care products to organizations like BHCHP is one way we're fulfilling our mission to provide the next generation with science-first, plant-based skincare. We're excited to add more organizations to our purpose-driven partnerships as we grow, and grateful for your support along the way.
