JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading hair care manufacturer Creme of Nature® is partnering with Look Good Feel Better for an informative Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign through the end of October. Look Good Feel Better is a free non-medical, national program dedicated to improving the self-esteem and quality of life of people undergoing cancer treatment. The campaign will include launching a limited-edition Creme of Nature with Argan Oil from Morocco Pink Perfect Edges; Breast Cancer Awareness walks in St. Louis, New York City, Jacksonville, Chicago and Atlanta; and a "Wear Pink Fridays" social media campaign, encouraging fans and consumers to pledge to wear pink on a Friday in October and post a photo using the hashtag #CourageousBeauty.
Creme of Nature's Argan Oil from Morocco Pink Perfect Edges — a hair gel infused with Argan Oil that helps to control and hold down edges, without flaking, while moisturizing and adding Exotic Shine™ to the hair — will be available for purchase in October with a portion of its proceeds benefiting Look Good Feel Better.
