A soothing and calming balm made from 100% natural ingredients.

If you have to choose one product for your scalp, choose Defiant Beauty Dry Scalp Treatment. This cleansing balm is easy to use and versatile, providing nourishing moisture from skin-calming ingredients as well as cleansing the scalp.

You will need a pea sized amount (making this 50ml jar last for an age), warm it in the hands and apply to the scalp in gentle sweeping motions. Leave for a minute or two if you can (think face mask but for the scalp) before removing with a warm damp flannel, tissue or cotton wool.

Perfect for dry, sore, itchy, and sensitive scalps. This specialist balm is formulated using ingredients with natural anti-bacterial properties, to combat spots and acne on the scalp as well as providing soothing and cooling relief to irritation.

A blend of 10 completely natural oils including peach and calendula.

This cleansing balm counteracts the dryness often experienced by those going through treatment for cancer.

This luxurious and versatile balm has been formulated using natural ingredients, lime, bergamot, tea tree and lavender known for their anti-bacterial properties, giving a delightful, subtle fragrance.

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.

SPECIALIST SKINCARE FOR CANCER PATIENTS

Any questions? - our experts team have the answer

Why Jennifer Young?

Beauty Despite Cancer was founded by Jennifer Young in 2013. She is the recognised expert in specialist skincare for those living with and beyond cancer.

Coming from a scientific background, Jennifer Young is an experienced microbiologist and associate member of the Royal Society of Medicine, who decided to combine her knowledge with a passion for natural skincare and wellbeing to create her own product line.

Jennifer’s entry into the world of cancer support came when she was asked by her local hospital to work with them to create a skincare line that would be safe and help tackle some of the skincare issues associated with cancer treatment.

While it’s not often spoken about, the side effects of cancer treatment can be extremely distressing and can undermine a sense of self at a time when people are already going through a lot. For example, chemotherapy and radiotherapy can cause painfully dry skin, brittle nails, skin pigmentation and chronic itching. These are the things that none of us see unless we go through cancer treatment ourselves or with a loved one.

Jennifer has also extended her mission by tackling barriers in the spa and wellbeing industries when it comes to delivering safe and meaningful touch therapies that are industry accredited and insurance approved. Through her training, anyone with or recovering from cancer can enjoy a massage, facial and other touch treatments in a way that ensures the spa or healthcare practitioner feels confident, the client feels safe and that the treatment proactively addresses their wants and needs.

What happens to your skin after cancer treatment?

There are many different types of cancer, a huge range of treatments and many side-effects of those treatments – not everyone will experience all the same things. However, many patients, about 40%, do experience dry, sore, sensitive, angry, flaking skin and fragile nails as a result of chemotherapy. Radiation treatment can also be damaging to skin, resulting in a reaction similar to sunburn.

Dry, sore, sensitive skin, chapped lips and itchy skin are common side effects of cancer treatment.

Which collection is right for you?

The Jennifer Young Beauty Despite Cancer Collections were created to help those living with and beyond cancer. We have three main collection ranges which are Defiant Beauty, Beyond Beauty and Well Being Beauty.

The Defiant Beauty Collection by Jennifer Young is a skincare and beauty collection created specifically for those going through treatment for cancer. The Defiant Beauty Face & Body Collections contain all of the products needed to look after your face, hand, foot, nails, and body. Here is a table which can help you decide which product could be right for your skin.

In the Beyond Beauty Collection, the ingredients have been chosen with the side-effects of treatment for cancer in mind. In addition, we aim to promote regeneration and rejuvenation. The Beyond Beauty products are face collections only, including a morning and a night collection.

The Well Being Collection provides an opportunity for holistic wellness during and beyond cancer treatment. Taking self-care beyond your regular skincare routine, Well Being Beauty products embrace the amazing qualities of natural essential oils in our blends to help balance your mood and improve general well being.

Why are most of our products oil based?

In our skincare lines we tend to use oils and balms instead of creams and lotions. The reason is because of our focus on efficacy and natural ingredients.

Where creams are made using water, which means they contain less of the rich beneficial ingredients that nourish your skin, balms are 100% hard working ingredients - there’s no filler component - at least at Jennifer Young. Water also requires products to contain an emulsifier so that the component oils don’t separate out, and its presence means preservatives are needed as well. The net result is that creams tend to be less natural in their overall composition. 

We like to keep our skincare products as simple and gentle as possible to limit the chances of any negative reactions and to maximise benefits. Skin balms are especially rich and nourishing, great for very dry and sore skin or for areas that sometimes need extra attention like feet and elbows. They work to protect the skin, with lots of beautiful ingredients to be absorbed, making them highly effective for deep moisturising as well as being very soothing.
