Global Innovator in Hair Care, Skin Care and Wellness for Healthy Aging, Monat Global Corp Donates More Than $370,000 to Organizations Serving Veterans, First Responders and Underserved Youth through a grant program established by Monat’s philanthropic entity, Monat Gratitude.
The funds were raised through sales of the company’s newest product, More than a Balm by Monat. More Than a Balm is a versatile product infused with Rejuveniqe S and Shea Butter to provide instant hydration to skin, hair and nails. The travel size product sold out in less than two months.
