Jennifer Young’s skincare collections were created in order to provide safe and nurturing skincare products for anyone with or recovering from cancer.
It began with the Defiant Beauty range, which was created in collaboration with oncology nurses and cancer patients, ensuring that ingredients were safe to use during cancer treatments, whilst also helping to relieve some of the skin issues caused by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Using natural ingredients, chosen for their gentle and healing properties, the Defiant Beauty collection is scent free as fragrance can sometimes exacerbate nausea, which is common whilst undergoing cancer treatment. In particular, the collection addresses issues such as dry skin, brittle nails and holistic wellbeing by supporting relaxation.
The Beyond Beauty skincare collection followed, created in response to client demand, as a range to be used once they had finished cancer treatment and were either in remission or living beyond cancer. This range affords to be a little more luxurious as it’s for use once cancer treatment has finished. As a result, its restorative and healing ingredients are still natural, but include more fragrances, such as frankincense - used for their restorative properties.
Brought together as sets, each of the collections makes for thoughtful and meaningful gifts for someone who has recently been diagnosed with cancer, is undergoing treatment, is recovering from cancer or living with it.
