The Time is NOW! #blacklivesmatter

As a brand that celebrates diversity and the beauty and power of diversity every single day, we are heartbroken and devasted by the events in Minneapolis and the continued acts of aggression by those who are called upon to protect and uphold our laws.

 Our deep love and respect for every body goes hand in hand with our commitment to support our Black, Indigenous and People of Color brothers and sisters. This means speaking up and standing up for the greatest truth – there is no justice when injustice exists within our community, and our world. 

We stand against racism in all forms. 

We stand for Equality. Dignity. Justice. 
For all. 

We do so through our words and our actions. 

Today we are raising our voices louder – for all to hear.  And we are taking swift action because as a company, we recognize that our heartbreak and outrage are not enough.

Today we have donated $30K across Campaign Zero, Black Visions Collective, and Reclaim the Block, and we are working to do more. 

We urge our SOL Community to step in and step up. Join us.
Every single action counts. 

Stay informed.
Stay strong.
Lift each other.
Hear each other.
Do for each other.
Call your elected leaders. 
Show up to vote. 
Donate to help. 
Be an ally to the Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities

Thank you for acknowledging and speaking up against systematic racism that black and brown people face everyday. I started using your Bum Bum cream and shampoo and conditioner since February and I have noticed a big change in a short period of time. My “bum” is smoother and tighter and the stretch marks are fading. As for my hair, it has become more manageable and shiny. I am so in love with your products! Thank you so much!!!

I have been using the Bum Bum cream for about 2 years now. I fell in love the second I used the cream! The am obsessed with the smell. I also recently discovered I love the coconut cream now as well. I dont have a favorite, I love them both equally, but they are truly the best moisturizer out there on the market! I wish they’d ship everything to Canada though.

Thank you, INFINITELY, for helping the world realize that Black and Brown people have been victimized for too long! You are among good companies that would help bridge the gap between communities!
