Cancer treatments cause a number of side effects, and some of the most lasting and potentially embarrassing are surgery scars. Whether from breast cancer, throat cancer, skin cancer, or other types of cancer, scars can be painful, irritating, itchy, and uncomfortable, to say nothing of upsetting.
I still have my scar where my port was put in and taken out of my left collar area when I was going through treatment for Hodgkin’s disease. To this day there’s scar tissue left that can be painful when I’m getting a massage.
Deb, a breast cancer survivor, told me this in an interview: “My doctor recommends that I continue moisturizing the radiation site, because it can get tight. I still do it every day, and it will be three years this summer.”
Whether you’re suffering from a new scar, old scar, skin redness or irritation—or just dry, flaky and dull skin—CV Skinlabs Restorative Skin Balm can provide soothing relief while encouraging healing.
Natural and Effective Ingredients
This product was named “Best All-Around Healer 2013” in the Healing Lifestyle & Spa’s (HLS’s) Earth Day Beauty Awards. “There’s always something in need of a little natural TLC—a bump, burn, cut, rash, or bite,” HLS stated. “This balm takes care of them all, with ingredients that have real healing benefits (not just a barrier of petroleum and silicone).”
I was so gratified by this statement, as I put in a lot of time, energy, and resources into finding the right ingredients for this product. I looked specifically for natural options that had healing and soothing powers, and then enlisted the expertise of a highly skilled research team consisting of a toxicologist, a chemist specializing in natural formulations, and doctors. This team screened every prospective ingredient for any known links to cancer, hormone disruption, or other health risks, as well as for any known potential to cause skin irritation, burning, itching, or allergic reaction.
Though safety is our highest priority at CV Skinlabs, we don’t sacrifice efficacy. We put our products through extensive micro-challenge, stability, clinical, and effectiveness testing to be sure the formulas performed as we wanted them to. One of the things we’re especially proud of is our unique Tri-Rescue Complex.
The Tri-Rescue Complex
Every CV Skinlabs product contains this exclusive complex—a unique blend of turmeric, alpha-bisabolol and reishi mushroom. Together, these three natural wonders offer a powerful combination of anti-inflammatory, wound-healing and skin-soothing actions, encouraging repair, healing, and restoration.
- Turmeric is a spice grown in India and the tropical regions of Asia. The active ingredient is curcumin, which has anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiseptic qualities. It was even found in some studies to help radiation wound healing.
- Alpha-bisabolol comes from the chamomile plant (Matricaria recutita), and it also has anti-inflammatory properties, helping to soothe and calm irritated skin. It’s also known to reduce the stresses of the environment on skin, and to accelerate the healing process.
- Reishi is a type of mushroom described as “tough” and woody.” It has super strong antioxidants, and reduces the risk of allergic reactions. It also retains water, which helps keep the skin hydrated and smooth, while natural anti-inflammatory properties calm any redness or irritation.
The Restorative Skin Balm also has calendula, sea buckthorn oil, and arnica—a powerful trio of plant-based antioxidants, fat-soluble vitamins, and sesquiterpene lactones (naturally occurring plant terpenoids). All of these are known for their healing, immune boosting, antiseptic, and skin-regenerating properties. The product is 100 percent free of synthetic fragrances and dyes, parabens, petrolatum, and other potentially toxic ingredients, and is made with 100 percent natural ingredients.
Customers Rave About the Results
I can tell you about how we formulated this product, but it’s the results that really matter, and those come from my customers. Sarah Jane Mercer, for example—Holistic Health Coach & Healthy Living Expert—felt sick to her stomach when her daughter fell onto a wooden stacker cup and scratched her face.
“I cried harder than she did,” she says. “I treated her cut with your Restorative Skin Balm for a week and now there is basically no mark! Thank you for making such wonderful products that I feel safe putting on my girl!” Sarah also told me that she’s noticed a “dramatic decease in scarring and healing time” herself, when she uses the balm after cutting or burning her skin.
Here are the before and after pictures of her beautiful daughter:
Chris A., a customer from Vancouver, Canada, burned her finger, and used Restorative Skin Balm for over four days. Check out her results:
Jessa Blades, Natural Beauty Expert and Makeup Artist, told us, “The Restorative Skin Balm is basically like a new Neosporin, without petroleum; it’s the balm that seems to help with everything.”
If you’re suffering from burns, scars, or other skin wounds, you may want to try this product, but you can also use it for dry cuticles, chapped lips, eczema, cuts, scrapes, IV areas, abrasions, chaffing, and any other areas needing some real TLC.
I started CV Skinlabs because I was frustrated I couldn’t find natural, soothing products during my cancer experience, and my father’s cancer experience. I’ve put my heart and soul into these natural solutions so that others don’t have to suffer from difficult skin conditions we did. I hope you, too, will experience the soothing relief these products can provide!
