We are so used to manufacturers producing sub-standard products, that we tend to forget that many are people like us, passionate about helping others. Although they want to make a profit (who wouldn’t?) they also care enough to put their heart and soul into producing ethical products. Many have developed special products because a family member has cancer, so they care about what they make.
So this section is for the manufacturers to give you their thoughts, feelings and ideas. I should say ‘watch out for advertising’ – but when I have asked them for input they have tended to forget to send any message, they are so passionate about helping.
CLINIQUE They were the first skincare product company to come to my rescue, with their Hero Product Deep Comfort Body Butter. The company was founded in 1968 by an editor from Vogue and Dermatologist Dr. Norman Orentreich. It was the first 100% Fragrance free collection that was Allergy-tested. Their current Super Defence range is excellent for our ‘drug blemished’ skins. www.clinique.co.uk

We do not use preservatives or other harsh chemicals in our plant-based formulations. This means that our toxin-free Skin Foods can be used by many, even with the most sensitive of skin.

This is because of it’s continuous Research and Development in the quest for the perfect product. The company is very proud to now have a Natural nail Strengthener which is 100% Formaldehyde FREE, thus appealing to all those people who are sensitive to formaldehyde”.
Feedback from Udderly Smooth users…
“Started using Udderly smooth after searching for an excellent skin cream, because I am having radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Udderly Smooth is just the ticket, as my skin is sensitive in the best of times, and my friend recommended it, as the use it in the states for patients. We need to get this on the NHS as a first choice of creams to be used. Please please!!! Works a treat!! Needs to be made readily available on the open market.
Thank you so much. M from Hampshire.”
“I had breast cancer a couple of years ago and wear a prosthesis as a result. The prosthesis makes my scar very sore, and as you’re not allowed to wear deodorants on or around the area of the prosthesis as it can damage the “skin”, I thought I was out of luck. A friend in the support group recommended Udderly Smooth to soothe and prevent irritation, so, doubting it, I tried some. I was so impressed! It took away perhaps 95% of the irritation and it continues to improve all the time! Love it! Other emollients and moisturisers did nothing – Udderly Smooth does the trick!”
