ISFOE is delighted to launch our first Cancer Aware: Skin Care Guide. The purpose of this guide is to list good quality, clean formulary and safe products for use on the skin pre, during and post cancer treatment. These organisations that are included in this guide are leaders in the world of skin care and without their support this guide would not be possible.
The ISFOE Board would like to thank the following contributors:
Crescina – Hair Follicular Islands
This unique hypoallergenic cosmetic product that has no contraindications and can be used even in the most delicate and difficult cases such as hair restoration after chemotherapy. It directly affects the hair follicles that are partially atrophied by chemotherapy, triggering physiological hair growth by activating the stem cells of the hair follicles.
