Why don't we include oils known as plant oestrogens in our Defiant Beauty Range?

Phyto-oestrogens, or plant oestrogens, are naturally occurring chemicals that have a structure similar to the female hormone oestrogen. Oils such as borage, avocado, evening primrose and soy are plant oestrogens. We do not include these oils in our Defiant Beauty Collections as these products have been formulated specifically as skin care for cancer patients and some cancers, particularly breast cancer, are oestrogen positive.

The hormones cause the cancer cells to grow and divide, resulting in tumour growth.

Why did we start our beauty despite cancer online community?

Beauty Despite Cancer has started an online chat room/community for cancer patients to discuss their skin concerns and solutions. We know that there are lots of you with stories to tell and that you all think you are the only one. We take lots of calls from lovely cancer patients wanting a bit of advice about the best Defiant Beauty Product to use given their skin condition. We love to hear from you and sometimes those chats are the highlight of our day. We meet such wonderful people on the phone or via email and are forever touched by your kindness in taking the time out of your days to contact us.
