Corporate Social Responsibility
For Cantabria Labs the word proximity is more than a way of being. It’s the only way to do things with the people around us. But also with those who are far away and need us most. We have a duty, to give back to society some of what science has given us. Therefore, there is an ingredient in the composition of our formulas that has no studies but we clearly know its benefits. The ingredient of action and social responsibility is also innovative and at the same time one of our longest-running “technologies”. An important part of Cantabria Labs’ benefits are directed at innovation projects, which not only help but also promote their sustainability.
We want to live on a planet where quality of life and health are adequate and for everyone’s enjoyment. That is why we are involved in draft projects and initiatives that help us achieve this from the field of social, scientific and formative innovation.
Rafa Nadal foundation and the María Zaragoza family
At the Rafa Nadal Foundation they firmly believe in the transforming power of sport and education, two tools that allow children and teenagers to go as far as they want, regardless of their origin and their personal and social conditions, including those with learning difficulties or disabilities.
The Rafa Nadal Foundation has three centers in Spain to assist and integrate children in vulnerable situations. Each year they attend more than 250 children between the ages of 6 and 17 years old, to whom they offer an educational program complementary to their school education, with sport as the main vehicle to encourage habits and values such as companionship, respect, or effort.
Emalaikat Foundation and Cristina (Dermalawi)
The DerMalawi project, boosted by dermatologist Cristina Galván, in collaboration with the Emalaikat Foundation and with the support of Cantabria Labs, has made possible the recent dermatological care of 2,600 people and 42 surgeries for malignant tumors in Malawi.
The project was born six years ago thanks to the missionaries of the Community of St. Paul the Apostle working in Malawi. They realized the large number of dermatological problems among the local population and decided to seek help. That´s how they met Dr. Galván, a dermatologist at the University Hospital of Móstoles and professor of dermatology at the Rey Juan Carlos University in Madrid, and with her involvement and the collaboration of Cantabria Labs, the DerMalawi project was launched.
