ELEMIS is proud to support Breast Cancer Care for the 18th year, with the launch of our Limited Edition Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm and through giving £25,000 to support people affected by breast cancer.
Each year we give vital funds and raise awareness of breast cancer through the creation of a limited edition pink product or collection. The packaging features the global symbol of breast cancer – the pink ribbon – prominently on the front of the pack and has been specially designed to raise awareness of breast cancer. We hope that the bright pink packaging also serves as a reminder, a mental Post-It note, to do a regular self-check. Checking your breasts should be as natural as applying your daily moisturiser – so you can notice any unusual changes and report them to your GP as soon as possible. The sooner breast cancer is diagnosed the more effective treatment is likely to be. Not sure how best to check?
A few figures:
- 62,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK.
- One in eight women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
- An estimated 691,000 are alive in the UK after a diagnosis of breast cancer. This is predicted to rise to 840,000 in 2020. With the number of people diagnosed with breast cancer increasing constantly, the need for support is more vital than ever.
- Breast Cancer Care is the only UK-wide charity providing specialist support and tailored information for anyone affected by breast cancer. Their clinical expertise and emotional support network help many thousands of people find a way to live with, through and beyond breast cancer. We’ve been a proud supporter of them for many years now. Discover our history on our partnership timeline.
“We want every person affected by breast cancer to get the best treatment, information and support and as such, we use our understanding of people’s experience of breast cancer and our clinical expertise in everything we do. We are grateful to ELEMIS for helping us to continue to reach people who need our support.” LIZZIE IREDALE, BREAST CANCER CARE, HEAD OF CORPORATE PARTNERSHIPS
