American Spa partnered with seven brands to produce theSpecial Edition Breast Cancer Awareness Beauty Box, which offered special promo codes for bulk orders so estheticians and spa owners could decide what products they wanted to offer during BCAM.

How are the women entrepreneurs behind small firms selling skincare and hair products, makeup and more navigating a time when customers are no longer seeing - well, anyone?
Mar Cavallone, founder of makeup lineDome Beauty in Chicago, has been grappling with similar problems thanks to COVID-19. She says she began to notice the effects in early January, as much of her packaging is sourced in China.
