The image of relationships that one sees in the movies and TV can be very misleading. Domestic abuse, be it physical or emotional, affects millions of people in the United States. The statistics show that as many as 25% of women in relationships will suffer abuse from their partners. While men can also be the victims of abuse, women are far more likely to be abused. Victims are also far more likely to have lower incomes. It means they do not have the financial means necessary to move away from abusive situations. 

New Jersey is the home state for both Genucel and the Women Aware organization. New Jersey has a disproportionate amount of victims of abuse. Genucel and The Women Aware organization have partnered to help those who have been abused. Despite very generous donations from some of largest companies in the world, Women Aware has created the Moving Beyond Abuse 5K Race & Charity Walk to help finance their work. It is a great way to combine two of the most successful ways to move past abusive relationships. 

Exercise is a great way to release stress, anxiety and anger. It is part of a healthy lifestyle that can aid in the recovery process. It is also an important time to be among a supportive group of people who have experience with abuse. Becoming healthier is also a great way to improve a feeling of self-worth and build self-esteem. Self-esteem is often a part of abuse that can take the longest to overcome, and its effects can be debilitating. The walk is a way to celebrate the victory of people in overcoming abuse and to raise awareness for the issue. 

Genucel, a part of Chamonix, has always been a supporter of the Women Aware mission. The company has raised money for them, and it has donated generously. As a fellow organization in New Jersey, it is giving back to its community in a variety of ways. In the past, it has handed out beauty bags to women and children who have suffered abuse. The bags contain beauty products that play a role in people's feeling of self-worth. The products can also help with sufferer's appearance who may have marks and injuries from the physical violence that they have received. 

Chamonix has a variety of beauty products. Genucel has a range of holistic make-up products that contain natural plant extracts and oils. It is a four step process in skin care. Using Plant Stem Cell therapy. Step one involves the use of Eyeseryl. The brand uses twice the concentration used in clinical trials, and it has been proven to reduce bags and puffiness under the eyes. Step two uses peptide proteins to smooth the skin and give a more youthful look. Step three uses antioxidants to combat wrinkles. The final part of the process uses Relaxoderm Technology to reduce the sight of wrinkles for up to 24 hours. 

The 4 step process is one part in a line of make-up and anti-aging products. The company also has hair products that help with shine and thinning hair along with vitamins for healthier looking skin and eyelids. Chamonix is proud to support the Women Aware organization and the victims of domestic abuse.
