How We Show It



Women

Women’s empowerment

CEO Joanna Draniak-Kicínska was born into a company that was started by her mother, just after the fall of communism in Poland. Joanna’s mother wasn’t afraid to be bold and take risks, and raised a daughter who was fierce and bold just like her.

Caring about women’s health and beauty is our business, but we’re so much more than a beauty company. We recognize the strength and power of women, and the important role that women play in society. We know that when women are happy and confident, everyone benefits.

Angel Night

We’ve been involved in our local community since the beginning, first partnering with our local domestic violence shelter, The Laurel Center. For the last two years in December, we’ve held our {save} Angel Night in which 100% of proceeds are donated to The Laurel Center. A night of community, laughter and commitment to serving others. Be a part of the 2020 evening by watching the event replay on our YouTube. Save the date for our Third Annual {save} Angel Night, December 2021 in Winchester, Virginia.
