It’s always exciting to find a company that creates high-quality products. What’s even better? When those companies exhibit compassion toward others and sell products that give back in some way.
The majority of companies out there only care about the bottom line, but occasionally you’ll find special companies that are doing their part to make the world a better place. One of those companies is Thrive Causemetics. They are having a positive impact on thousands of women and communities in need across the United States.
Ways Thrive Causemetics helps women and communities thrive
Karissa Bodnar officially launched skincare and makeup brand Thrive Causemetics in 2015. Charitable giving has been at the heart of Thrive Causemetics since before this fledgling company made its first sale. Karissa initially focused on women fighting cancer as she had just lost a close friend to cancer.
On New Year’s Eve in 2014, Thrive Causemetics held its first giving event. Women battling cancer were invited to receive professional makeup applications. Thrive also donated 1,000 sets of faux lashes and lash adhesive.
The donations given by Thrive Causemetics are made possible with every product sold. For each product sold, Thrive donates that same product, a different Thrive product, or a monetary donation to one of their giving partner organizations.
Through the years, Thrive has partnered with many charitable organizations to help thousands of women by donating products. In addition to supporting women battling cancer, they’ve expanded to help cancer survivors, domestic abuse survivors, women that have been homeless, and women that are actively serving or retired from military service.
In 2018, California was experiencing wildfires that displaced many residents and animals. Thrive made its first cash donation to many of the organizations that worked to assist those affected by the wildfires.
Thrive celebrated its four-year anniversary in 2019 by donating $250 million worth of products to over 50 partner organizations!
Not surprisingly, Thrive is still at it in 2020. 100% of profits from March 27 sales, which totaled $350,000, were donated to Meals on Wheels, Baby2Baby and Feeding America. These organizations assisted those people that needed it most at the onset of COVID-19 here in the United States.
The Thrive Causemetics COVID-19 Response Fund was created to provide ongoing assistance to women impacted by the pandemic. Thrive has committed to donating a total of $1,000,000 which will be split between cash and product donations. These donations will go toward helping frontline healthcare workers, women-owned small businesses, and employees of those small businesses.

Thrive Causemetics is doing great things, but are their products worth the investment?
I think we can all agree that Thrive Causemetics is a wonderful company that has helped a lot of people, but you might be wondering about the quality of their products. Fortunately, with Thrive Causemetics, everyone wins. Thrive products are top-notch! Thrive products boast the following:
- 100% Vegan
- 100% Cruelty-Free
- Formulated without parabens, phthalates, sulfates, or fragrance
- Formulated with skin-loving ingredients
- Many of their makeup products are waterproof
- Shade ranges are inclusive for all skin tones
An added bonus is that you get a cute makeup bag for free with every purchase!
Where to find Thrive Causemetics products
The full range of Thrive skincare and makeup products can be found on thrivecausemetics.com. Ulta is currently offering a limited range of Thrive products that are available in-store only, so remember to take a look the next time you stop by your local store! I’m hopeful that someday Thrive Causemetics will partner with Ulta or Sephora to offer all of their products in-store and online so that the brand will be accessible to more people.
Thrive Causemetics is a company that I believe in and I’m proud to support. I am excited to see what they do next!
