Beauty products that actually help the LGBTQ+ community this Pride month

Posted by for Beauty

From Morphe to Marc Jacobs, here are the beauty brands supporting the LGBTQ+ community this Pride 2020.

Unfortunately, Pride celebrations across the globe are cancelled this year due to Covid-19, which means it’s even more important to show the LGBTQ+ community your support.

While there is long list of brilliant charities you can donate to directly, some beauty brands are also giving customers the chance to support the community by simply purchasing a product. Which is particularly great if you were going to make the purchase anyway.

Here, we round up our favourite charitable beauty products celebrating Pride and supporting the LGBTQ+ community in 2020.

  • NOTO Botanics Agender Oil
