Each shade of Pure Anada Lip & Cheek Rouge is proudly named after a noteworthy Canadian woman:
Charlotte Small was the Metis wife of surveyor, map maker and explorer David Thompson. She was from a community in Northern Saskatchewan called lle-a-l-la-Crosse in which fur trading was the new commerce. Charlotte married young for the sake of security and practical advantages such as translating and trading on her husband’s behalf. She and her husband’s relationship endured and it has been said that their affection was evident. Charlotte was invaluable to her husband given the fact that she was multilingual and naturally connected with different tribes. Her husband attested to his wife’s resourcefulness, knowledge and support. Charlotte was strong and experienced when it came to rough winters and harsh elements, even snaring rabbits when food was scarce. She and her husband took their children along travelling on expeditions ranging from the Rockies to Quebec. She traveled 3 ½ times farther on these expeditions with her husband than did the American explorers Lewis and Clark. Charlotte is due great honour for her faithfulness and strength at her husband's side for 58 years and twenty-thousand kilometers. She is to be credited along with her husband in his success as North America's greatest geographer and celebrated with his for his outstanding efforts in his exploration and mapping of Canada. Women of the fur trade such as Charlotte made incredible sacrifices and contributions to history.
