Mielle Organics and Susan G. Komen announced a partnership to help fight breast cancer disparities in black and brown communities. Everyone is at risk of breast cancer — though some are at higher risk than others. This partnership was developed to help counter this exact phenomenon. Mielle Organics has co-branded its Oats & Honey collection with Susan G. Komen, the world’s leading nonprofit breast cancer organization.
ENSPIRE is dedicated to supporting community health, which is why this partnership is perfect to promote. Black women are about 40% more likely to die from breast cancer than white women. Latina women are more likely to be diagnosed later than white women. Funds raised by this partnership will help Komen improve breast health disparities in Black and Latino communities, which are disproportionately at risk.
Komen is a trusted breast health partner, providing timely breast health information, support, and resources to diverse populations. They will help by connecting patients to personalized breast health resources and support, which helps break down barriers to high-quality breast care for these populations. Mielle Chief Marketing Officer, Jolorie Williams says, “Mielle is honored to continue its partnership with Susan G. Komen and support their health equity work to eliminate breast cancer disparities. It’s crucial to ensure that Black women have access to high-quality care and treatments.”
This effort aims to create a world without inequities where marginalized populations have the same chances of surviving breast cancer as anyone else. Jolorie Williams emphasizes, “Through education, outreach programs, and representative research funding, we can remove barriers to care and achieve health equity for all women. Mielle is proud to support Komen in this important effort by co-branding our most gentle collection, Oats & Honey, which is targeted toward sensitive scalp consumers.”
Over two years, Mielle has donated $200,000 to the cause. Together, these companies are making a meaningful difference for people in Black and Brown communities. Meille is a perfect partner for this cause. Founded in 2014 by CEO Monique Rodriguez, Mielle Organics is a popular Black-founded, woman-led global beauty brand that is rooted in natural ingredients. With a heavy emphasis on incorporating healthier ingredients as its “root to results,” Mielle Organics’ collection of beauty products is designed for Black women.
