The two companies will launch the new products through its Gift of Giving program, with a percentage of proceeds going to the Hawaii Domestic Violence Action Center. Forty participants in the Hawaii Domestic Violence Action Center will receive cosmetics from Touch In Sol as well Hilo Hattie, as a way of helping victims of domestic violence get back on their feet.
