Breast cancer now represents one in four of all cancers in women worldwide and touches lives every day. While experiences with the disease may vary, the desire to defeat breast cancer is universal. This year, in honor of a shared vision for a world without this disease, The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign celebrates the power of global solidarity by encouraging people around the world to “Take Action Together to Defeat Breast Cancer.” The 2016 BCA Campaign invites women, men and families to draw inspiration from one another and unite in action on BCAcampaign.com and social media, while supporting lifesaving breast cancer research.
Over the past two decades, The Estée Lauder Companies’ BCA Campaign, launched by the late Evelyn H. Lauder, co-creator of the Pink Ribbon and founder of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF), has been a leading voice for breast cancer awareness around the world, igniting a global movement that has helped save millions of lives and fund innovative breast cancer research. Today, The BCA Campaign is active in more than 70 countries and has raised more than $65 million to support global research, education and medical services, with more than $50 million funding 200 BCRF medical research grants worldwide over the past 22 years. These funds help accelerate critical research across wide-ranging areas such as tumor biology, heredity and ethnicity, lifestyle and prevention, treatment, survivorship and metastasis. Around the world, The BCA Campaign partners with more than 60 breast cancer organizations focused on breast cancer research, education and medical services. This year, The BCA Campaign is committed to raising $6 million in support of its mission to defeat breast cancer through education and medical research.

Estée Lauder announces the launch of The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder, a bold new collection of makeup and skincare created for the beauty-obsessed, social media generation. The collection launches today in 320 Sephora U.S. and Canada stores, and is also available on Sephora.com and Sephora.ca.
“Our founder, Estée Lauder, invented the beauty business as we know it,” said Jane Hertzmark Hudis, group president, The Estée Lauder Companies. “So we asked ourselves, ‘If Estée was re-inventing the beauty business for Sephora today, what would she do?’ The answer is The Estée Edit.”
“The Estée Edit is a win for both Estée Lauder and the Sephora client. We anticipate that The Estée Edit’s mix of covetable trend-based makeup, instant-gratification skincare products, approachable price point, and millennial muses will receive a very positive reaction from our young and socially-engaged consumers,” said Artemis Patrick, senior vice president of merchandising, Sephora.
The Estée Edit is inspired by Estée’s famous quote, “Beauty is an Attitude,” and features 82 products – 72 makeup, 10 skincare – that offer instantly, visibly gorgeous skin and covetable color. The packaging features signature elements originally created by Estée herself but with a twist, resulting in silver and white fluted packaging with cobalt blue paint splatter graphics.
