Going Glam for Good: the Fight Against Breast Cancer

June and her daughter Rochelle

About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. We cannot sit by idly and let our mothers, sisters and selves become victims of this tragic disease. Many influential women have joined the fight and research is making impressive breakthroughs in treatment and survival rates.

We caught up with June Jacobs, a breast cancer survivor and the creator of her eponymous skincare line, to learn about her contribution to the cure and how to use glam for good.
Jacobs experienced her own personal battle with radiation dermatitis while undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Determined to calm her physical discomfort, and help other women experiencing similar issues, she was inspired to develop Rapid Repair Healing Cream ($60).

She challenged her lavatory scientists to create a soothing salve to solve her irritation. These experts surpassed her expectations and developed a face and body treatment that helps ease irritation, reinforce the skin’s barrier protection, repair uneven textured skin, provides free radical protection from external assaults promoting healthy looking skin and provides up to 24-hour moisturization.

Women undergoing cancer treatment have enough to deal with, so when it comes to resolving discomfort, every little bit helps. This luxurious lotion helps solve skincare woes, and albeit temporary, it provides a relaxing escape from the stress of the disease.

During the month of October, 25% of the net proceeds from every product purchased will be donated to The Anne Moore Breast Cancer Research Fund and 25% goes to Dubin Breast Center.
