Our Mission

What began as founder Sylvie Chantecaille’s passion has blossomed into a 20-year-long commitment to environmental philanthropy. Sylvie’s love of gardening led her to discover the crisis of disappearing Monarch butterflies, and the creation of our first philanthropy partnership. Since then, our philanthropy collections have helped raise awareness for endangered sea turtles, coral reefs, gorillas, wolves, bees, elephants, giraffes, and more. We are proud to give a voice to these urgent environmental causes.

Africa's Vanishing Species

Our Luminescent Eye Shades were created to pay tribute to—and to benefit—six of Africa’s most endangered, vanishing species: the elephant, rhinoceros, cheetah, giraffe, lion and pangolin. All of these wild animals face common threats from shrinking habitats, conflict with humans, and illegal poaching, which make their long-term survival uncertain.

African Elephants

The migration route of elephants in Africa is ancient—and vital to their survival. They also need protection from poaching, and from the expanding human populations and developing economic growth in Africa that is encroaching on their habitat.

Past Causes

Since 2006, our previous philanthropy collections have included these charity partners and their work conserving beauty in the wild.

Asian Elephants

Smaller than their African cousins, Asian elephants face similar threats from shrinking wilderness and runaway human population growth. We partnered with Elephant Family on a limited-edition Lip Veil to help protect the Asian elephant from extinction in the wild.

Climate Change

Melting glaciers are but one drastic effect of a rapidly warming climate. Polar ice is the habitat for polar bears and countless other arctic species who rely on glaciers for their survival. Protecting the ice is key in slowing the effects of climate change around the world.

Wolves

As top predators, wolves play a vital role in maintaining the natural balance of the environment. Conservation Northwest is an organization working to return wolf populations to certain regions.

Elephants

Dedicated to the protection and conservation of wildlife habitats in Kenya, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is working on the front line, in the field, to protect elephants, treat and rescue the victims of the ivory trade and educate local people as to the importance of protecting their wildlife heritage.

Coral Reefs

The health of the ocean is vital and coral reefs are sounding the alarm. Corals create spectacular undersea ecosystems, home to thousands of plant and animal species.

Wild Plants

We use botanicals sourced from around the world. It’s important that the natural ingredients we use are harvested in socially and ecologically responsible ways.

Tigers

Tigers are poached, hunted and exterminated for small and big profit. The disappearance of wild tigers is of utmost urgency, as the loss of our top predators is the barometer of an ecosystem in trouble.

Lions

A true passion for conservation led Stephanie Dolrenry and Leela Hazzah, the founders of the Lion Guardians, to settle in Kenya. Both have devoted their careers to conserving lions and preserving cultures.

Sea Turtles

Sea turtles define all that is ancient and magical about our blue planet and yet they are endangered and struggling for survival, their numbers severely reduced from historical levels.

The Blue Whale epitomizes the health and harmony of the planet-and its well being is directly tied to that of the High Seas. In order to safeguard our planet, we must prevail upon the global community to work together to protect the High Seas.
