The Chemocare Balm Story
Chemocare Balm was formulated for a patient going through chemotherapy treatment. After trying so many creams, and lotions, he could not find a product that helped with his skin condition. We created Chemocare Balm to relieve his dry , and cracking skin problem.
PPE or " Palmar-plantar Erythrodysesthesia" is a side effect of chemotherapy. It affects the skin on your hands, and the bottoms of your feet. It may cause your skin to peel, or you can get blisters or sores. Hand and foot syndrome can be very uncomfortable, and may prevent you from doing every day activities. Your health care team will advise you on how to manage PPE.
Chemocare Balm is made with natural healing ingredients. Without the use of harsh chemicals like petroleum, or mineral oil, it works quickly to help relieve cracked, peeling, and dry skin in addition to restoring lost moisture.
It also helps to protect the skin by creating a natural protective barrier with natural topical barrier ingredients such as bees wax, organic sunflower seed oil, and olive wax . Conditions such as cracking, redness, and peeling are relieved.
It works so well...
Chemocare Balm is now requested by name. We believe in making a balm that helps your skin feel better, naturally!
Carole Poirier, who is a pharmacy assistant at Turner Drug Store in Wortley Village, said the product flew off the shelves as soon as it came into the store.
"It's because of the natural product," she said. "You can actually read all the ingredients,"
Poirier said natural products make up about 70 per cent of what the pharmacy offers.
"The natural products are not going away they're becoming more intensified."
Darren Dasovich, a staff pharmacist at Health Centre Pharmacy in St. Thomas shares his comments on Chemocare balm.
"People are looking for skin care products that are safe and not processed, and less chemicals. There are so many chemicals in the environment and people want to just keep things simple."
I heard about this product on CBC radio . I was looking for a product without petroleum, and chemicals . I found it at Shoppers Drug Mart , and it worked miracles the very first day! I carry the small jar in my purse.~
My pharmacist recommended Chemocare balm. I tried so many other products, and nothing worked as well as this product. I like the fact that it has no petroleum, and is natural. It stopped my hands, and feet from cracking, and peeling, and smells so good~
I was given Chemocare balm as a gift. Chemocare calmed the redness, and relieved the dry cracking skin. The balm really helps keep my hands, and feet soft.~
