As you may know, finding products designed for women battling cancer is very important to me. I’m partnering with Total Beauty during October to help promote the Total Beauty Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, so stay tuned for more on that front. Below, a great new find from Cologne, called Pristine Recovery:
When Blaire Kessler, new mother and former Miss Winston Cup, was diagnosed with breast cancer in her early thirties, she suffered hair and skin/scarring problems from treatment. After discovering that the only products available contained chemicals and carcinogens, she set out to create her own offerings that were 100% natural and safe in a quest to get hair and skin back in shape.
After some serious research–plus lots of trial and error–she created Pristine Recovery, her own line of effective, 100% natural, carcinogen-free solutions for her fellow cancer survivors, including a leave-in hair and scalp revival serum and décolleté and underarm massage cream for scarring and skin renewal. To ensure the line was up to snuff, Blaire contacted Dr. Samuel S. Epstein, the founder of the Cancer Prevention Coalition, who reviewed all of the ingredients and declared them are acceptable for safe public use, something critical to a cancer survivor in recovery. She has pledged to donate a percentage of the proceeds to two charities: the Young Survival Coalition and the Cancer Prevention Coalition.
Plus, this girl has some serious style and has designed all her products in an Old Hollywood Glamour theme, with names like ‘Brallywood Butta’ and ‘No More Scary Hair’. Blaire’s hope is “Pristine Recovery’s products promote a positive mind, a joyful spirit and a healthy lifestyle. There is finally a fun not depressing spin on a bad situation that has a touch of Old Hollywood Glamour!”
