Luxury skincare brand Natura Bissé has announced its partnership with The Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation, which just launched in the U.S., and nonprofit breast cancer organization Susan G. Komen. The companies' goal is to promote overall well-being for people with cancer with skincare support and by raising funds for the fight against breast cancer.
The partnership will support Komen’s work investing in research to discover cures for breast cancer, as well as vital patient support programs that help those facing the disease today. The organizations will put together an integrated program and ensure that the skincare needs of cancer survivors, as well as those living with the disease, are understood and met in a compassionate and supportive environment.
Komen and the Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation will provide education, training and resources to those undergoing oncology treatments, as well as providers, caregivers and estheticians. The effort will promote well-being by helping those going through their journey understand and navigate common physical and emotional side effects of cancer and cancer treatment.
“At Natura Bissé, we are fully committed to provide support for skin health at all stages of life, and that doesn’t change when a case of cancer is diagnosed. The potential side effects of oncological therapies on the skin are relevant as they can impact the well-being and adherence to the medical treatments. That is why we are so excited to partner with Susan G. Komen and the Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation,” says Verónica Fisas, CEO of Natura Bissé Group and board member of Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation.
The organizations are also committed to removing barriers to care for cancer patients, particularly at a time when they feel vulnerable and have mounting medical bills. They plan to minimize delays in cancer care, encourage positive outlooks through education and invest in evidence-based programs that drive change.
