THINK: 100% Natural Healthy Skin Care & Makeup During And After Cancer Treatment
WHAT IT IS: Lavera’s strong commitment to bringing consumers the healthiest & safest skincare and makeup has led them to collaborate with Cancer Lifeline in a series of hands-on workshops that covers basic skin care maintenance and make-up application. Participants learn about healthy alternatives for feeling beautiful while going through or recovering from cancer treatment.
Cancer Lifeline was founded in 1973 by a cancer patient who could not find the support she needed to help her live with her diagnosis. They provide emotional support, resources, educational classes and exercise programs designed to support people in all stages of the cancer process. All of Cancer Lifeline’s services are free of charge and supported by private donations. Their services are available throughout Washington’s Puget Sound area and in 16 Western Washington counties.

Lavera has donated all the products for the workshop. At Lavera, natural ingredients aren’t add-ons to fundamentally synthetic products””every product employs pure natural extracts and essential oils as active ingredients, providing genuinely natural benefits. Lavera trades in harmful synthetics like parabens, emulsifiers, petroleum, phthalates, lead, synthetic preservatives and fragrances for natural, effective plant-based alternatives that are certified organic whenever possible. Every cruelty-free, biodegradable product represents a smart, gentle choice for the skin, body and earth.
While chemotherapy and radiation eradicates rapidly dividing cancer cells, it also destroys healthy cells, which causes physical changes to the body, including the skin. Changes in the skin may include partial or total hair loss, thin shiny skin, flakey, irritated, itchy, red or hypersensitive skin. It is especially important to support your body during and after cancer treatment as your body absorbs up to 60 percent of what is applied to the skin into the bloodstream“”which includes those not-so-good for you, unpronounceable ingredients that could be doing your body harm. By using organic, you avoid absorbing ingredients linked to allergies, hormonal changes, skin irritations and other conditions and diseases. Natural and organic products are better able to support the skin’s natural processes of cell renewal, hydration, oxygenation and protection.
Since its founding in 1987, Lavera brand has grown to include more than 300 natural and organic skincare products. Lavera health and beauty products are currently sold in more than 24,000 locations in 25 different countries. The natural skincare market leader in Europe, Lavera boasts a 27 percent market share in general health and beauty as well as a 50 percent market share in sunscreen. Lavera was recently awarded the title of “Greenest Beauty Brand” for the second consecutive year by the prestigious OEKO-Test magazine in Germany, beating out 32 other companies. Headquartered in Kirkland, Washington, the North American Division was formed in the late 1990s. For more information on Lavera, please visit http://www.Lavera.com.
