Cure Alzheimer’s Fund announced that it has received more than $136,000 from Orveon Global. Launched in December 2021, Orveon is a standalone collective of premium and prestige beauty brands, including bareMinerals, BUXOM and Laura Mercier. As part of its mission to drive positive change, Orveon is committed to supporting causes and nonprofits that align with this goal.
“Alzheimer’s disease is indiscriminate in whom it affects, and it spares neither the patient nor their loved ones,” said Tim Armour, President and CEO of Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. “Women are diagnosed at twice the rate of men, and also have primary responsibility for caregiving and financial support of those who are affected. We must understand the causes and pathology of the disease to develop truly effective therapies, and we are grateful for the generosity of Orveon in providing financial support for much-needed foundational research.”
It is estimated that 6 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease, and this number may be understated by four times due to those who have not yet been diagnosed. It is projected that the percentage of adults 65 and older in the U.S. population with Alzheimer’s disease will rise to 22% by 2050.
“At Orveon, one of our core values is benevolent activism, which means we focus on empowering impactful innovation, from sustainability in beauty to causes that drive real change,” said Robert Rigby-Hall, Chief People Officer of Orveon Global. “We are honored to support CureAlz’s notable work to improve our understanding and treatment of Alzheimer’s.”
Established in 2021, Orveon is a collective of iconic cosmetics brands, including bareMinerals, BUXOM and Laura Mercier, paving the way for the future of the beauty industry. Believing beauty is more than skin deep, Orveon aims to challenge conventional wisdom with humility and deliberate action—all to create positive change. Owning the face of beauty, and striving to face forward together, Orveon is about its employees as much as the union of these established entities.
