Non-Toxic Beauty Products For Cancer Patients

In 2001, Gina Maisano received some very shocking news --- doctors discovered a lump in her left breast. The news came as a surprise to the her because she was pretty health cautious. The 39 year old chef exercised regularly and she didn't eat meat, smoke or drink. She was treated with lumpectomy, chemo and radiation. Then in 2007, she was diagnosed a second time in the right breast. She went through a year of chemo, radiation, and mastectomy with reconstruction. 

Maisano began experiencing severe side effects due to the various medical treatments. Unable to find anything to help, she began concocting things in her kitchen to help with the radiation burns. After doing extensive research she realized that there was a connection between beauty products and breast cancer. She created a list of over 2,000 harmful ingredients and met with a chemist to develop a line of toxic-free beauty products. 



Bétèrre Skin+Care was launched online in June 2013. The company offers non-toxic, cruelty-free products for the face, body, and hair. Each product is safe enough for the whole family to use and aims to keep you skin looking beautiful without putting harmful, cancer-causing ingredients on your body.
