For San Francisco-based Profit, the partnership with Deliberate Parenthood joins Daring Is Stunning, Profit’s initiative that donates 100 p.c of forehead wax proceeds all through the month of Could to organizations that assist ladies and ladies. This 12 months, the model goes one step additional with the launch of a Daring Is Stunning magenta-tinted 3D BROWtones in rose gold packaging, which will probably be obtainable to buy year-round.
