Change the world with beauty! This is the motto of i+m NATURKOSMETIK BERLIN, because we want to beautify not only skin and hair, but preferably the whole world. That’s why a quarter of our income flows into the development and maintenance of eco-social projects – entirely in the spirit of the common good economy. Last year alone, this amounted to €100,000! Your receipt is therefore a ballot paper, because with every purchase of an i+m product, you support our world improvement measures.
- You buy, we donate 100% – Several times a year, we donate our entire daily online shop revenue and at the same time create a platform for issues that are close to our hearts. In this way, we collect donations for a good cause and also draw attention to important projects, such as Syrienhilfe e.V. or the integration project EOTO. You can actively help decide which organisation we support via social media.
- Choose your own donation target – With our limited FAIR Editions, you support specific projects, because we donate one to two euros per product sold to the respective initiative. With the Let’s Support Refugees! shower gel, for example, you support a social garden and neighbourhood project run by refugees in a former Berlin cemetery; with the PETA Animal Rights Shower Gel, you support the international animal rights organisation PETA; and with the CBM Donation Soap, you support an aid project of the Christoffel Mission for the Blind in Ethiopia.
- Support our commitment in Zambia – Our largest and permanent donation project is in Zambia. There, our women’s shelter, initiated in 2014, has since been expanded to include an orphanage and a school, all of which are run by local people. Every year at Christmas, we offer our Festive FAIR Edition Sambia, which you can buy to support this project.
- Support our global commitment – We are proud that our cosmetics are among the cosmetic brands with the highest percentage of Fair Trade raw materials. They are fairly traded, so we work with 12 fair trade projects that strengthen local economies and promote issues such as equal rights for women, fair wages and much more. Find out more here!
- Help for small projects – In addition to our major fundraising campaigns, we at i+m have the opportunity to support our own personal fundraising goals, NGOs, initiatives and projects through our employee donation fund. From the “Bund für Umwelt und Naturschutz Deutschland” to the “SchutzengelWerk Kinderhilfe” to the “Eichhörnchen-Hilfe Berlin/Brandenburg e.V.” and many more.
- Think global, act local – Our products are manufactured entirely in Germany and to a large extent even regionally in Brandenburg. This is particularly important to us, because it allows us to support the local economy and at the same time guarantee the high quality standards of our products. Shipping takes place via the integration project Schloss & Gut Liebenberg.
