Clarins & Arthritis Ireland
Clarins Ireland and Arthritis Ireland are proud to announce a joint initiative in the fight against rheumatic diseases.
For every Tonic Body Treatment Oil sold, Clarins will make a donation to Arthritis Ireland to enable them to create a population who are taking control of their arthritis and also strive to raise awareness of this disease. This is part of a worldwide initiative by Clarins in association with The Arthritis Foundation whose aim is to raise more funds for research and find effective therapies to treat serious rheumatic diseases.
Eoghan O’Sullivan, General Manager Clarins, Ireland said: “We are delighted to be associated with Arthritis Ireland in bringing our global initiative to Ireland, an initiative which has deep roots in the fabric of the Clarins brand. The funds donated to Arthritis Ireland will help contribute to vital research in the quest to find a cure, while helping to raise awareness and understanding of this disease. Clarins are very proud to be a part of this partnership with Arthritis Ireland.”
John Church, CEO Arthritis Ireland said: “We are thrilled to be working with such an iconic brand as Clarins, and I want to thank them for choosing to support Arthritis Ireland and help us in our work across Ireland.
"Thanks to great advancements in medical treatment and complementary interventions like our Living Well with Arthritis self-management programme, the way people are living with arthritis is changing for the better. But there is still a huge amount of work to do before we achieve our vision of a world free from this hugely damaging disease.
"Arthritis Ireland is here to help people take control of their disease while we invest in research to find new treatment and, ultimately, a cure. Our new partnership with Clarins will be instrumental in helping us achieve our vision,” Mr Church stated.
Arthritis affects 1 in 5 people in Ireland – nearly one million people nationwide. There are over 100 different types of arthritis and these can affect people of all ages from babies and toddlers right through to those in their adult years.
Little things can make a big difference to a person with arthritis. Difficulty with the little things like making a cup of tea, getting dressed or opening the front door can all add up to have a big impact on a person’s quality of life. Arthritis Ireland understand this. That is why it is Ireland’s only organisation working single-mindedly to transform the experience of people living with arthritis and those who care for them. Every day, they work in communities across the country providing community-based education programmes to help people effectively manage and control this devastating disease. They actively drive grassroots advocacy so that the voice of people with arthritis is heard and understood and work with the medical community to control and cure arthritis.
