Breast cancer is estimated to affect one in eight women. According to leading UK charity Breast Cancer Now, the UK still has one of the lowest breast cancer survival rates in Western Europe and every year around 11,500 women and 80 men die from breast cancer – that’s nearly 1,000 deaths each month.
To mark Breast Cancer Awareness month this October, we’ve rounded up 7 companies who’ve teamed up with various breast cancer charities to create limited edition products, with a percentage of each sale going towards funding new research.
Nourish London have teamed up with Walk the Walk to create this limited edition Radiance Firming Facial Oil (£25.00, 15ml). The award-winning* Facial Oil is made using 98% organic ingredients including a patented French marine-algae extract to improve collagen and give your skin a fresher, firmer appearance. As well as doing wonders for your skin, £2.50 from each sale will also be donated to Walk the Walk, the UK’s largest grant-making breast cancer charity who specialise in Power Walking Challenges to raise money for breast cancer research.
