Posted on April 19, 2012 @ 08:19 am

Skin care brand Aveeno, known for its Active Naturals ingredients, has launched the Be an Active Natural Fund to recognize individuals and organizations that are creating positive change in their communities.

Throughout 2012, AVEENO will be giving $300,000 in grants to individuals and organizations to support their efforts in creating positive change. Eight $10,000 grants will be awarded throughout the year to consumers whose work impacts the lives of others through one of these three categories:

•Inspiring others to see their natural and inner beauty

•Educating about the values of an active and healthy lifestyle

•Preserving, restoring and improving the local environment

"As ingredients, 'active naturals' nurture skin and hair to make it healthy and beautiful; people can be 'active naturals' too, by caring for their communities to make a beautiful difference," said Cory Price, Group Product Director for Aveeno Skincare at Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc.

To enter to win or to vote for the Active Naturals who inspires you, go to the Aveeno Facebook page ( for full program details. The call for entries began this month, and will end on October 31, 2012. Winners will be announced on a monthly basis starting in May 2012.
