Simi Valley, CA (Nov. 1, 2012) – derma e®, a pioneer in formulating cutting-edge effective natural skin care products, is pleased to announce that with their continuing efforts through The Paraguay Project, they have made a positive impact on the biological and environmental conditions in Paraguay.

The Paraguay Project is derma e®’s three-tiered charitable program that helps support the people, rainforest and land of Paraguay. derma e® purchases beautiful, hand-crafted Spiderweb Lace at a fair market price directly from co-ops in Paraguay, sells them to US boutiques and online, and donates full profits as well as a percentage of all product sales to three non-governmental organizations: Guyra Paraguay, Clyde E. Bay Foundation and GlobaI Infancia.

Guyra Paraguay has recently made significant progress in working to protect the environment and wildlife. This will help improve the quality of life for Paraguayans and assure that there are resources for future generations. Highlights include:

· Participation and sponsorship of public awareness events

· Organization of educational programs, campaigns and trainings

· Monitoring of use of land, flooding and deforestation

· Purchasing of land for conservation purposes

· Support of sustainable production of soy crops
