OneSqin is world’s first health and beauty brand to give 100 percent of its profits to empower girls in need | Business Wire

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OneSqin CIC (http://www.onesqin.org/)

is a new social enterprise. The world’s first business to donate 100

percent of profits to charities helping get girls in need into

life-changing education.

Founded by luxury asset manager Neil Richmond FRSA and former superyacht

captain Sinisa Jovic, OneSqin manufactures and sells premium-quality,

100% natural skin cream and certified organic cotton tampons.

“The odds are always stacked against girls who grow up in poverty,” said

Richmond. “Every three seconds a girl somewhere in the world becomes a

child bride. The number one cause of death for girls aged 15-19 is

childbirth. And four out of five victims of human trafficking are girls.”

OneSqin supports projects that give girls the chance to stay in school,

access health services and delay marriage and childbirth, helping them

escape the cycle of poverty and shape a brighter future.

“Neil and I both worked in the luxury sector,” Jovic said. “We did well,

and now we want to put something back. We wanted to make change easy.

we chose products that many women use regularly. They’re very high

quality, with pure, natural ingredients and no harmful chemicals.”

Richmond added: “As consumers, we hold great collective power. We asked

ourselves, what if that power was directed toward fighting inequality –.

what if the purchase of premium-quality products could help correct the

balance? What if women could help other women just by buying the things

they need?”

OneSqin CIC is a UK registered Community Interest Company, a certified

member of Social Enterprise UK and is supported by the Thomson Reuters

Foundation and the Royal Society of Arts (RSA). All work to get the

brand up and running has been provided by volunteers.

OneSqin products will launch via a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in

April. Organic cotton tampons will be sold online, by subscription and

on demand in the UK and the USA. 100% natural, all-purpose skin cream

will be sold online worldwide. Early adopters can register online now at www.OneSqin.org

and win free products as a thank you for helping the social enterprise

to launch.

OneSqin currently supports pupils at the SEGA Girls School in Tanzania

through the charity Nurturing Minds http://nurturingmindsinafrica.org/.
