Occasionally some types of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and cancer drugs can make your skin more dry and fragile than it was before. Our body washes help to repair dry skin and lock in moisture for extra protection.
Having been developed by our own clinical aromatherapists with the aim of making life just that bit easier for those currently dealing with the side effects associated with the cancer and its various treatments mentioned above, these body washes are suitable for sensitive skin.
How do they work?
Essential oils can be inhaled through the nasal passageways, affecting the olfactory bulb leading to various benefits to help manage symptoms associated with cancer treatments - whether that be stress, anxiety, respiratory conditions, circulation problems or insomnia.
Our body washes are ideal for using in the shower or bath, and can leave you feeling clean, refreshed and moisturised, whilst providing some of the other great benefits mentioned below.
Directions for use: Apply and gently massage into the skin, or lather on with a sponge, before rinsing off.
How to choose the right blend for you:
Cypress, Lime and Mandarin - May help to alleviate stress, aid respiratory conditions and boosts the immune system
Ylang Ylang, Rose and Mandarin - Can help reduce stress and anxiety, whilst aiding sleep and relaxation
Benchmark Thyme, Lemon and Bergamot - Can help to boost circulation and fight infections, due to their antibacterial properties. Benchmark thyme is proven powerful in combating MRSA (Ref: Maggi Tisserand; School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences, University of Brighton).
Fragrance free - For a natural, moisturising and refreshing feel
All of our body washes are 100% free from paraben, aluminium, sodium laurel sulphate, mineral oil, and paraffin.
TIP: It’s also worth noting our Therapeutic Body Wash and Shea Cream are available in the same four blends, which makes them ideal for purchasing as a set. They will work synergistically together to enhance their beneficial properties.
NOTE: These products have been carefully developed through many years’ experience of helping with symptom management in those living with cancer. As a result, our products are suitable for everyone - not just cancer sufferers.
