Cetaphil plans special-edition moisturizer for special cause
September 5th, 2012
FORT WORTH, Texas – Cetaphil this month plans to introduce a special edition moisturizing cream at Walgreens in partnership with Camp Wonder, an initiative of the Children's Skin Disease Foundation.
The Galderma Laboratories skin care brand said Wednesday that it will donate a portion of the proceeds of the special-edition Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream, available exclusively at Walgreens, as well as grant $100,000 to fund camp activities. The official partnership kicked off in June, to coincide with the annual Camp Wonder.
Camp Wonder is a medically staffed summer program that gives children ages 7 to 16, who suffer from serious and fatal skin diseases, the opportunity to feel "normal" and simply have fun. The weeklong camp is fully funded by The Children's Skin Disease Foundation, an organization founded in May 2000 by Francesca Tenconi who, as an adolescent, suffered from a potentially life-threatening skin disease and missed out on normal childhood activities.
The special-edition Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream, priced at $14.99 for a 16-ounce container, will be available beginning in September at Walgreens drug stores.
"This unique partnership resulted from a personal meeting with Francesca Tenconi and her family," stated Francois Fournier, president of Galderma. "We have been deeply touched and impressed by Francesca's exceptional courage and commitment to improve the lives of children suffering from severe skin conditions, a cause that aligns with Galderma's mission."
