We are funding two educational projects in Colombia under a simple Credo:
Helping through Education, not Charity
WASH YOUR HANDS
In Colombia, only 5% of people wash their hands before meals.
Hygiene habits can save lives and we started "MANOS LIMPIAS" 2016 not only as a donation but as educational initiative to communicate and promote the habit of WASHING HANDS.
Since 2017, we us part of the money from sales to fund the campaign "MANOS LIMPIAS" for make soaps and donate while teach about how washing hands before eat, after use bathroom and before cook can save lifes by prevent ing diseases like diarrea, respiratory illness, and infections with this simply habit.
SUNSCREEN IS NOT ENOUGH
Skin cancer in Colombia is growing by 3.2 daily detected cases and there are no data since 2012.
Rural population is in risk and many of them does not know suncreen is not the only way to prevent it, we want to bring them an effective sunscreen not based in misconceptions of SPF number, but good practices for sun protection.
By now we have to produce large quantities for small price but we are working for make free sunscreen for rural population and low income people.
SPF NUMBER IN SUNSCREEN
Most of people thinks SPF 100 in a product means double protection than SPF 50.
In May 2016 we have launched a FREE Android App SPF PURECHEMISTRY wich shows the percentage of ultraviolet radiation blocked by a SUNSCREEN PRODUCT just typing the SPF number indicated in the label.
