Radiation and chemotherapy can be harmful and damaging to the skin. Therefore the goal of skincare should be to optimize its overall condition to minimize the potential and severity of skin reactions – all while taking into consideration sensitive immune systems associated with cancer. To ensure effective moisturization for patients, products rich in humectants are the best, as they help the skin hold onto its existing water content and improve its pliability.
Lexli International products, including their Hand & Body Lotion, offers pharmaceutical grade aloe as its main ingredient. This means it is 99.9% pure aloe, while many other aloe skin products on the market are cosmetic-grade, having up to 30% impurities, which can be detrimental to the skin. Aloe can penetrate deep into the skin’s layers, unlike water which cannot be absorbed. The key to choosing aloe products is looking at the main ingredient list. Many list water first, demonstrating it is the primary ingredient, which may dilute active ingredients such as aloe.
Lexli is the premier line of pharmaceutical grade aloe vera skin care products, founded in 1996 by Dr. Ahmed Abdullah, a board-certified plastic surgeon and noted aloe researcher. The company offers a full-range of advanced solutions for daily skin maintenance and numerous products suitable for cancer patients, including cleanser, lotion, and moisturizers.
Cancer Horizon’s is honored to be able to make high quality skin care products available for cancer patients, and appreciative of Lexli’s support and partnership for our community.
