Leading skin care e-commerce and digital platform, Soko Glam, announced today, Beauty for Good, an incubator program that will feature highly curated capsule collections throughout the year on sokoglam.com to elevate culturally-relevant voices focused on their valued perspectives and dynamic missions.

The first capsule collection from the program, The AAPI Founders Collective, will launch in May in celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month and with every purchase from the collection through May 31st, Soko Glam will donate a portion of proceeds to The AAPI Community Fund to address the urgent issues that face the AAPI community as well as broader, systemic problems and racial inequalities in our society. With the introduction of these purpose-led brands, Soko Glam continues their commitment to serving communities beyond skin care and amplifying their brand mission of Only Good (Skin) Days Ahead®.
