Biologique Recherche Ireland partners with Wellness for Cancer to support cancer patients

In the October issue of IMAGE Magazine, on shelves now, fashion designer Helen Cody speaks eloquently on how beauty has made her feel good, inside and out, while undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer surgery. “Looking as good as you possibly can while going through treatment is less about looking pretty and all about feeling empowered,” she wrote.

Global skincare brand Biologique Recherche are cultishly popular among beauty lovers (and IMAGE editors), beloved for their medical background, pure ingredients and clinical cosmetics. It is Biologique Recherche’s wish to support their clients throughout their entire skin journey – from the peak of health and throughout illness, too. They want all of their clients to feel that all beauty treatments are accessible to them throughout their cancer treatment.

This October, The Greenhouse Project are donating 20% of all Biologique Recherche face and body treatments and massage for the month of October to The Irish Cancer Society in their ongoing partnership. They have also partnered with Wellness for Cancer, a non-profit organization, to adapt facial and body treatments specifically to the needs of cancer patients, and those in remission.

Through Wellness for Cancer, Biologique Recherche is adapting their methodology to serve those who have been touched by all different forms of cancer by offering a selection of products and gestures for each client depending on cancer type, cancer therapy, surgery involved and long-term conditions, like the risk of lymphedema.

Julie Bach is the Executive Director for Wellness for Cancer and has trained therapists in The Greenhouse, Dun Laoghaire on how to adapt face, body and massage treatments to be fully inclusive of cancer patients and survivors and to provide a personalised treatment for every person to step through their doors, no matter their diagnosis or situation.

“It was an honour to host Julie Bach from the Wellness for Cancer programme,” says Tonya Costello, Ireland’s Biologique Recherche Distributor. “Recently nine face and body therapists trained under her expertise to learn how to evolve their skills and treatments in order to care for cancer patients throughout their health journey. At Biologique Recherche, we don’t believe that treatments should be made unavailable to those living with cancer – we believe that that is the time they may need it most in order to feel good, to look good and to feel like themselves. The treatment methodologies we now have honoured all of this, and our therapists are able to adapt and modify the excellently effective Biologique Recherche treatments, that always hold the client first and foremost. This Wellness for Cancer partnership enables our therapists to truly take care of our clients.”

“At Biologique Recherche, Ireland, we hope to set up partnerships with cancer support networks on an ongoing basis to treat any patients who would benefit, and I am pleased to announce that for the month of October, we will be donating 20% of all treatments to The Irish Cancer Society to support their great work.”

“It is both exciting and heartwarming to be able to adapt our treatments for all our clients, especially during times when they need relaxation and support the most,” says Megan, Head Therapist and National Trainer in The Greenhouse, Dun Laoghaire.
