DC-Based Entrepreneur Sara Damelio Supports The Troops With Her Organic Skin Care Line


DC-based entrepreneur and aesthetician Sara Damelio and yours truly were recently featured on DC’s FOX news, which then aired nationally. Damelio has found her passion in creating her organic skincare line Skincando.

Sara donates her Combat-Ready Balm through her Operation Sand Flea campaign to deployed troops. Damelio makes a lip balm, body balm, and bath bar but her products don’t stop there. Her other lines include Luxe, and she has a children’s line as well.
Damelio had to go through 1,000 tests before she found the right ingredients for her skincare line. A client sent her Combat-Ready Balm to her army husband who was deployed to Iraq. The balm helped soothe his skin and his comrades’ skin from the sand flea bites, dried skin and other harsh skin conditions. The response was overwhelming and Damelio started a campaign to donate as many Combat-ready Balms as possible.
Her line has been featured in O Magazine, New York Times, Details Magazine, Washington Post, Washington Times, and The Washingtonian.

In 2008, I launched AskMissA.com which grew from my personal blog into a site with 700 writers, covering the intersection of charity & lifestyle in 20 U.S. cities. With Charity + Life, I am going back to a personal blog where I can share my favorite things, and continue to shine a light on nonprofits, and cause marketing campaigns to inspire others to give as they live.
