The current burden of student loan debt in the United States amounts to $1.56 trillion. This financial strain on college graduates all over the country can have a negative impact on one’s career path, housing, family planning, and much more. First Aid Beauty (FAB) is committed to combatting this student loan debt with its brand-new initiative.
First Aid Beauty is a skincare and makeup brand that aims to “rescue people of all ages from their biggest skin concerns.” Not only does the company want to help people combat their skin issues, but also the burden of student loan debt. In 2020, the FAB AID initiative will commit $1 million to pay off student loans and help graduates have a smooth start to the next chapter of their life.
For Lilli Gordon, First Aid Beauty Founder and CEO, student loan debt is a burden that hits close to home. Not only has Gordon personally struggled with student debt, but she has watched her young, FAB employees face these challenges as well. Lilli Gordon, herself, states, “We’re proud to make a commitment toward impacting the futures of deserving college graduates and give them the freedom to pursue their dreams free from the crushing impact of loans.”
FAB has released two limited-edition FAB AID products that will be sold exclusively at Sephora and firstaidbeauty.com. These two products are FAB AID Ultra Repair Cream 8 oz ($42) and 2 oz ($14) jars, in which 10% of the retail sales from these products will be added to the $1 million commitment. According to FAB, “Our award-winning, best-selling, head-to-toe moisturizer provides immediate relief and long-term hydration for dry, distressed skin.”
