Jennifer Young Specialist Cancer Skincare


The Defiant Beauty Collection was created when some people at Jennifers local NHS Cancer Centre asked her to work with them to make specialist skincare for those affected by cancer.

Jennifer went onto the chemo ward knowing nothing about why patients needed specialist skincare. The patients, ex-patients, lead chemotherapy and radio nurses were kind and patient and told her of the skin and nail related side-effects caused by chemo and other cancer treatments.

Itchy Skin was top of their list for concerns to be addressed. It was made very clear to her that the itchiness was driving them and many others mad. The itchiness was almost always accompanied by dryness, sensitivity, soreness and flaking.

She had been given my brief and Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil was the answer. The first feedback I got, from someone who had bought Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil online was

‘I just wanted to let you know that you have changed my life’

This lovely lady had spent the winter following her treatment for breast cancer indoors and bra-less. Her skin was sore from radiotherapy treatment and she had spent a fortune trying to find a bra that she could wear comfortably. She failed to find one and, as a last resort, decided to try to cure her sore skin. The Defiant Beauty Itchy Skin Oil worked, she could wear a bra and felt able to leave the house to play golf, her passion.

Dry Skin is another common side-effect and one which all of our specialist products are formulated to combat.

 This beautiful range of skincare is 100% Natural, Organic, Chemical Free and without the use of endocrine disruptors (phytoplant oestrogen commonly found in plants) which are advised to be avoided during treatment for cancer, and commonly found in most skincare ranges.

Products have been formulated using minimu ingredients including essential oils chosen for their therapeutic benefits. The Jennifer Young Defiant Beauty and Beyond Beauty range is perfectly suited to delicate skin including those not going through treatment for cancer but also may suffer from dry, sore, sensitive and itchy skin.
