Peacekeeper Cause-Metics is the first cosmetics line to give all of its after-tax, distributable profits to women’s health advocacy and urgent human rights issues. PeaceKeeper builds a bridge between extraordinary women in the land of plenty and extraordinary women who, by chance of birth, don’t have our resources or opportunities.
Here are the ideals that we pledge to uphold in our business practices:
- Slavery-free labor: PeaceKeeper is building a slave-labor free company, so if we believe there to be any exploitation in hours, safety, or health-care and retirement benefits, we are out. We are consulting with www.newstandards.com to monitor this.
- Fair wages: PeaceKeeper makes sure that the companies we are working with, here and overseas, pay a fair wage to their employees.
- Cruelty-free products: PeaceKeeper does not use any products that have been tested on animals. We also provide 100% vegan products for animal lovers who do not use ingredients such as carmine.
PeaceKeeper strives every day to practice the ideals of truthfulness, non-stealing, and non-violence, as found in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, a text which outlines the ways in which a yogi can find ethical balance throughout their life.
When a yogi practices truthfulness, ultimately anything they say will come true. If they practice not hoarding or stealing, people will feel so safe around them that they will reveal unimaginable treasures. When we truly practice non-violence, then no negative energy can harm us. Like the Buddhist monks who can safely walk through a battlefield, we can face each day unaffected by the negativity in the world. Now that's powerful!
As a company, PeaceKeeper strives to promote promote greater peace throughout the world by the practice of these traditional concepts. We hope that you can help us achieve success by practicing truthfulness, non-stealing, and non-violence in your own everyday lives!
PeaceKeeper Cause-Metics is the first cosmetics company to give donations to women’s urgent human rights issues. We focus on women who live at the base of the pyramid on a dollar or two a day or women living in exploitation or servitude.
PeaceKeeper is not simply a project created by a few women and the men who love us. For PeaceKeeper to work, many women (and the men who love us) must be involved. Just by buying a few products, you can become a PeaceKeeper too! If we can all work together--the women and men who buy our products, the buyers who bring us into their stores, the people who write about us in the press--we can look back in 20 years and know that we raised millions of dollars to help lift up women and children in desperate need--together.
