Lindi Soothing Balm - 120ml
Skin reactions are a common side effect of radiotherapy treatment and many patients develop sore, sensitive or extremely dry skin. Lindi Skincare is a speciality skincare range developed specifically for cancer patients. Lindi Soothing Balm is a rich, emollient, non-greasy lotion intended for extremely dry or compromised skin from radiotherapy treatment. Thanks to astaxanthin, avocado, olive oil and shea butter in its formula, Lindi Soothing Balm protects and moisturises dry, cracked, and flaking skin that can result from radiotherapy treatment. Pharmaceutical-grade ingredients and rare botanicals make this the perfect gentle lotion to tackle the driest skin. This 4 oz. bottle lasts most users approx. 1 month.
MooGoo Natural Milk Wash - 500ml
Skin can become sensitive and sore when undergoing radiotherapy treatment and it's advisable to use gentle products, suitable for sensitive skin. MooGoo Milk Wash combines small amounts of five different natural cleaners as this can be gentler on skin than one concentrated cleanser. MooGoo chose natural cleansers that wash well without drying out the skin. The foaming action isn’t quite as intense as it would if they used a synthetic detergent like SLS (or other common culprits) but they’re happy to make this small trade-off to use more natural ingredients that are healthier for us and the environment. MooGoo also uses a mix of natural skin conditioning ingredients. No essential oils that can also trigger reactions are added, but instead, a blend of Vanilla with the allergy-triggering compounds removed. Because it’s so gentle it’s also a no-tears formulation in children's eyes. Suitable for all ages, body part and skin types. 500ml.
Organic Colloidal Oatmeal - 100g
Colloidal oatmeal is a centuries-old topical treatment for a variety of skin conditions, and more recently colloidal oatmeal has been clinically proven as beneficial for radiotherapy skincare. This organic colloidal oatmeal can be added to warm bath water as a relaxing natural soak. It can help to relieve itchy, dry skin and can soothe dry and inflamed skin from radiotherapy treatment. It helps to lock in moisture and to create a protective layer. Providing deep moisturisation it is a natural skin cleanser. Ingredients; Avena sativa (colloidal oatmeal) kernel flour. 100g. Single serving.
Udderly Smooth Extra Care Cream with 10% Urea - 114g
Udderly Smooth Extra Care Moisturising Cream is often recommended by healthcare professionals for oncology related skincare. It's a non-greasy, fragrance free, deeply moisturising cream which helps to prevent peeling and cracking of the skin.

MooGoo Aluminium Free Deodorant - 60ml
Many patients going through radiotherapy treatment like to use natural products and this MooGoo Deodorant is an aluminium-free, natural, roll-on deodorant. The unique, slightly alkaline formula, works by allowing perspiration (which is odourless) but preventing odour causing bacteria from growing. No bacteria = no smell. MooGoo Deodorant is made with Milk of Magnesia and a light, fresh Lemon Myrtle scent and naturally preserved with Hops Extract. Free of aluminium, parabens, phenoxyethanol and over-powering essential oils that mask odour and can cause irritation. Vegan friendly. 60ml bottle.
Natural Unscented Soap Bar - 100g
Skincare is so important when undergoing radiation treatment and it is recommended to wash skin with a mild, unperfumed soap. This fabulous handmade bar of traditional cold-pressed soap is as simple as it gets. Wonderfully gentle and moisturising, there is nothing extra added - no artificial colourings, scents or preservatives. The soap bar is approximately 100g and only contains Organic Coconut Oil, Lye and Organic Cocoa Butter – that’s it!
