Together we make a difference
SAPPHO operates on the ancestral territories of Coast Salish First Nations. We honour and give back to Indigenous peoples in our local community with every purchase of the Skin Luminizer.
Also, a long-standing yearly donation is made to the Breast Cancer Support Fund in Toronto, supported by your purchase of the talc-free Silky Setting Powder.
Our brand name
SAPPHO New Paradigm's name and logo are rooted in Sappho's, the ancient Greek poet, strength and feminine energy.
