When side effects generated by therapies take over, the skin loses its original protective capacity and is more fragile, sensitive and reactive.
Dermocosmetics for cancer patients
Oncos’ main goal was to create an oncology cosmetic range formulated with emollient and soothing ingredients, suitable for dermocosmetic intervention for delicate and sensitive skin with the aim of reducing symptoms such as dehydration and irritation, caused by cancer treatment, by restoring the stratum corneum of the skin.
Through extensive and focused study, ONCOS has created a range of dermocosmetics for cancer patients, cosmetic products for cancer patients that can give patients some relief from the unpleasant side effects caused by treatments such as chemo and radiation.
If cosmetics have a very important function for every person, all the more so do products for chemotherapy and other cancer treatments have an added value: intact skin, in fact, provides protection and is able to perfectly exert its barrier function against external agents and most of the substances present in the cosmetics themselves.
Bottles designed to optimally store chemotherapy cosmetics were used for all ONCOS products: because of the mechanical pump and piston-sealed container, the product never comes into contact with air and is better protected from oxidation and external contamination, both microbial and environmental.
The ONCOS range of dermocosmetics for cancer patients was created to prevent the side effects caused by chemotherapy and radiotherapy on the skin.
During cancer treatments, the skin may show skin reactions including redness, irritation, itching, and a range of alterations from a functional point of view. To avoid incurring these risks, it is important to prepare the skin even before starting treatments.
Oncology cosmetic products formulated by ONCOS are created with this very purpose: to prepare patients’ skin for this kind of journey.
Cancer therapies and skin: the side effects
The most common include the following:
- Skin dryness;
- Skin rashes;
Sometimes the skin may also show changes in pigmentation, and taking anticancer drugs may interfere with the skin’s complexion, promoting the appearance of spots (hyperpigmentation). More severe side effects, such as burns and skin tears, can also occur in rarer cases. To avoid incurring these risks, it is important to prepare the skin even before starting treatments.
Ultimately, the skin of the cancer patient needs constant attention and daily protection-the very things that ONCOS cosmetics for cancer patients can provide.
The key is to consult a medical specialist, who will be able to correctly indicate cosmetics for chemo and other cancer treatments that are suitable for individual patients’ needs.
