Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil - 50ml

- Moisturises tight skin
- Easily absorbed into skin

The Jennifer Young Collections were created with the help of an NHS Cancer Centre and some of the women in their care. Itchy Skin was the very first side-effect that the team wanted to be addressed. Itching is a very common side-effect of treatment for cancer and is often accompanied by dry, sore, sensitive skin.
This specialist, natural, gentle oil aims to address all of these common side-effects of treatment for cancer.
The Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil is a multi-tasking miracle moisturising and reducing itching no matter what the cause. This naturally fragrance-free oil was formulated especially for skin as it undergoes and recovers from chemotherapy, radiation treatment and surgery.
Apply only a small quantity of this luxurious oil.
Key ingredients include gentle Apricot Kernel Oil, healing Calendula and rejuvenating Rosehip Oil. This easily absorbed oil does not contain any essential oils and is naturally fragrance free. A blend of 5 completely natural oils including calendula.
To use, warm a small amount of oil in the hands and apply in gentle sweeping motion over the affected area. Use twice a day, more frequently if required.
Prunus armencia (apricot kernel oil), Helianthus annus (sunflower oil), Prunus persica (peach kernel oil) , Calendula officinalis (Calendula), Rosa rubiginosa (Rosehip Oil), Tocopherol (vitamin E)
Founded by Jennifer Young in 2013, Beauty Despite Cancer is the recognised expert in specialist skincare for those living with and beyond cancer.
Beauty Despite Cancer ensure that anyone being treated for, living with or recovering from cancer, receives the skincare and wellbeing support they need and deserve in a safe and meaningful way, through products they can use at home.
While it’s not often spoken about, the side effects of cancer treatment can be extremely distressing and undermining to a sense of self, at a time when people are already going through enough. For example, chemotherapy and radiotherapy can cause painfully dry skin, brittle nails, skin pigmentation and chronic itching – to name a few. They are the things that none of us see unless we happen to go through it ourselves or with a loved one.
Incensed by the scale of the issue and the way it was being ignored, Jennifer began working closely with patients and nurses, all of whom had their own criteria, in order to develop products that really worked to make people feel better and also to tackle the areas of concern that were adding to patients’ distress and discomfort.
Since then, she has worked to create a product line that meets the needs of anyone with or recovering from cancer as well as giving a sense of enjoyment, comfort and relief when using them.
