Defiant Beauty is the skincare line that has been designed by Jennifer Young for anyone currently undergoing treatment for cancer. It has been created in collaboration with nurses and cancer patients, for skin when it’s at its most sensitive, by using ingredients that are the least likely to cause reactions. For example, products are scent free, because fragrances can often make you feel nauseous when having cancer treatment. Crucially, they also help relieve key issues that often occur during treatment as a result of therapies including chemotherapy or radiotherapy. That might be cracked skin, breaking nails, sore cuticles, skin discolouration or chapped lips, to name a few.
These simple formulations are nourishing and moisturising, with the collection featuring 10 core products; five for face and five for body. For example, the Defiant Beauty Mild Mint Foot Balm gently moisturises sore and cracked heels, the Itchy Skin Oil relieves irritation of the skin commonly experienced by those receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Meanwhile, the Scalp Care Oil renews your skin with anti-bacterial tea tree and bergamot and also helps to combat spots and acne on the scalp, which can be prone to breakouts when hair is lost because of treatment for cancer.
