Chemical Free Skin Care
100% ORGANIC AND NATURAL SKINCARE
Our skin is the largest organ in our body and well worth the extra effort to protect. Many products boast natural ingredients but it can be quite rare to come across a brand who produce their own macerations in-house, and do not use any synthetic chemicals, GM ingredients, artificial colours or fragrances.
Skincare for cancer patients in particular, can feel daunting, especially with such a saturated market. During cancer treatment it is vital to get 100% organic, chemical free products, as even the strongest skin can become easily irritated during and following chemotherapy. This is also important for mama’s to-be, babies and anyone interested in keeping the skin routine natural AND protected.
A happy coincidence… I worked with skincare company, Made for Life Organics, just before my cancer journey arrived, following the diagnosis of a grade III/IV brain tumour, Oligodendroglioma Cytoma, a particularly tricky one with a name to suit…
This was in gear a year before, my husband passed away following a battle with Synovial Sarcoma cancer, which is when I began compiling the research and content for Wholesome World. It’s so important to share good knowledge far and wide. Find us on Instagram for more insight.
Made for Life Organics was developed by a renowned medical doctor, who combined dermatological science with pure, organic, botanical ingredients, to create a range of powerful, natural skincare products. My favourite products are the Age Well Intensive Moisturising Balm alongside the Restorative Body Balm and Rejuvenating Face Oil. Used effectively through treatment and solidly before, during, and after cancer treatment. ‘Well loved’.”
MADE FOR LIFE ORGANICS
Made for Life Organics is an ethical and award winning organic skincare range based in Cornwall, UK. They have a simple philosophy – that to be healthy and whole, we simply need to be connected to nature. It is about a pure and clean way of life which centres on the principles of mindfulness and kindness. And NO animal testing ever. The most genuine and lovely skin brand worldwide.
Developed by combining a deep knowledge of dermatological science in collaboration with with the strength and purity of botanicals, the formulations have gently evolved and improved with research based on clinical studies, whilst always bearing in mind the rich abundance of nutrients that nature provides us with.
They have recently been in a beautiful relationship with researcher Neil Carpenter, to create their natural hand sanitiser, a current virus fighting necessity.
The first company in the UK to achieve 100% organic certification, they do not add any synthetic chemicals, including parabens – pure nature for the skin.
Given that WHO (World Health Organisation) predict that one in two people will be diagnosed with cancer. Recent research showed that 96% of spas were turning away people who were going through cancer. Made for Life has had the vision of moving this figure to one which shows 96% of spas opening their doors to people with cancer. The journey has been transformative on a personal level, for the therapists they have worked with and for the people who have been able to walk into a spa to be nurtured. It has simply been a journey from C to B.
