Cetaphil offers limited-edition cream at CVS for Camp Wonder
October 3rd, 2013
FORT WORTH, Texas – Galderma Laboratories, the maker of Cetaphil skin cleansers and moisturizers, is again teaming up with Camp Wonder by donating proceeds from a special-edition Moisturizing Cream, offered exclusively at CVS/pharmacy.
Galderma said Thursday that over the past two years, Cetaphil has donated more than $100,000 to fund camp activities and more. The official partnership, which kicked off in June 2012, has raised over $300,000.
Camp Wonder, an initiative of the Children's Skin Disease Foundation, 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 special-edition Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream, with a suggested retail price of $14.99 for a 16-ounce jar, will be available beginning in October at CVS/pharmacy stores and online cvs.com/campwonder. Galderma said the limited-edition Moisturizing Cream will feature new artwork created by Jassamine Domino, a former camper and current counselor at Camp Wonder. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each jar will go to Camp Wonder and the foundation.
"Camp Wonder is a very special place that gives children living with a chronic skin disease the chance to experience summer camp in a safe and nurturing environment where they can have fun and receive the medical support they need," commented Eileen Howard Boone, senior vice president of corporate philanthropy and social responsibility at CVS Caremark Corp. "We're proud to partner with Cetaphil on this meaningful initiative that aligns nicely with our signature philanthropic program, All Kids Can, which helps kids of all abilities on their path to better health and supports organizations, like Camp Wonder, that provide children with the opportunity to be the best they can be."
Galderma said its employees volunteered at this year's camp and provided Cetaphil products to use on site. Since many families are burdened by the cost of care, the Cetaphil brand will also supply a grant for campers to receive Cetaphil products throughout the year to care for their skin, the company added.
