Cancer Skincare - Introducing Lindi Skincare


Whilst most people are aware of the common side effects of cancer treatment, such as hair loss and nausea, many cancer patients are less prepared for the variety of skin related side effects that modern cancer treatments can cause, including dry & itchy skin, rashes, painful hands & feet and radiotherapy burns. Regular skincare products aren't designed to help with these issues, but Lindi Skin is a US skincare line, designed specifically for the unique needs of people with the most compromised skin when undergoing cancer treatment.


 

Lindi Skin

Lindi Skin is dedicated to developing skin care products that ease the burden of common side effects experienced by individuals undergoing treatment for cancer and related disorders. Their products are intended to help individuals feel better, both physically and emotionally, and gain a greater degree of control over the side effects they experience. Lindi Skin combines state-of-the-art technology and the latest medical information with innovative ingredients to formulate superior products for a very special group of people.



The Lindi Skin Story

Lindy Snider - Founder of Lindi Skin

Lindi Skin was created in the USA by Lindy Snider following her experience of watching friends go through cancer treatment. Lindy noticed they expected the nausea, fatigue and hair loss associated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, but they were not aware of the impact that these therapies would have on their skin. In discovering there was not one line of skin care products specifically developed for people with cancer, it occurred to Lindy that someone had to create one. And that person ended up being Lindy.


In formulating Lindi Skin products, Lindi Skin has aligned with dermatologists, oncologists, nurses, patients and skincare formulators to create products that can treat even the most sensitive of skin. Lindi Skin formulas are unique, gentle, and soothing. They use the finest ingredients for the ultimate hydration.



What makes Lindi Skin so special?

Lindi Skin is the original Doctor-trusted skincare line designed specifically to meet the unique skincare needs of people going through cancer.


Lindi Skin's Medical Advisory Board of oncologist, dermatologist and skincare experts researched and studied every option while crafting their formulas.  They sought out ingredients that would be safe and effective for people with compromised skin from cancer treatments. 


The Lindi Skin team identified several key areas of focus, including: 


  • Anti-microbial and anti-fungal ingredients to protect skin, since cancer treatments can weaken the immune system

  • Natural anti-inflammatory botanicals that soothe red, irritated skin

  • Powerful cell-renewing anti-oxidants


The result is Lindi Skin's proprietary LSA Complex™ that is unique to Lindi Skin products and delivers unparalleled results for people going through cancer treatments and anyone with sensitive or compromised skin.  



Clinical Testing

A Northwestern University Study concluded that Lindi Skin soothes skin irritated by cancer treatment and improved overall quality of life.


The study evaluated the quality of life (QoL) and tolerability of three Lindi Skin products specifically developed for cancer skin care management - Lindi Skin Moisturiser, Lindi Skin Face Moisturiser and Lindi Skin Face Wash.


Ninety-nine cancer patients receiving systemic anticancer therapies and/or radiotherapy at Northwestern University were assessed at the initial visit for adverse skin reactions. All patients were provided with the three Lindi Skin products and were instructed to use each product once daily for 4 weeks.


The results showed that dry skin, hand–foot skin reaction (HFSR), and skin rash (dermatitis) decreased significantly and most patients rated their overall experience with Lindi Skin product as good or very good (highest rating).
