Deborah James, had Stage 4 Bowel Cancer

When you’re living with cancer you need to be mindful of which beauty products you can use. There’s not much info out there so I spent a long time hunting down the right products. Wish they were all in one place! The C List sounds great

Leanne Pero, Breast Cancer survivor

As my hair started to grow back after Chemo I went through a lengthy process of experimenting with different shampoos before I found an ideal as there were no recommendations. So many people go through cancer, there needs to be beauty treatment info out there

Georgie Swallow, Blood Cancer twice thriver

When I was diagnosed I got every piece of medical advice under the sun but when it came to the actual ‘living with cancer’ side; like the make up, skincare, beauty products I felt super stranded & clueless on what I could or should use. I went on a hunt for all things unperfumed, no chemicals, zero irritation and it left me with about one product. I wish when I was diagnosed there was somewhere I could have gone to for more information because even though you need to be careful with what products you use, there is such a variety out there.... if you know about it!
