Kate McIver Skin launch on The C_List, an online shop of Cancer-Kinder products from trusted brands

We are super excited to Introduce The C-List
So very proud to be part of it!
So what is "The C-List?

”Having the cancer bomb dropped on you is devastating enough but when your skin, nails and hair start taking a blow during treatment, it can really take the elastic out of your knickers.

Cancer patients are often advised by their medical team and beauty staff to “use baby products” as some beauty products are not safe for use if you are undergoing cancer treatment like chemotherapy. Well-meaning perhaps but also impractical. How many six week old babies have their moods elevated by a splash of lippy or nail varnish? With one in two of us getting a cancer diagnosis in our lifetime, it is clear that something has to change.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is why The-C-List has been created – with the sole mission to make the cancer journey a little less, well, sh**ty. First, of its kind, this passion project is driven by makeup artist Lisa Potter-Dixon and cancer campaigner Helen Addis.

Not only is it an online beauty shop packed with cancer-kinder products from trusted brands, it’s also a growing community site with video tutorials and blog posts. The content promises to cover things like how to fill in your eyebrows, tips on how to tell your children or how to rehydrate your skin during treatment.“It’s like Goop but for those affected by cancer.”⠀Helen & Lisa

Helen, The C-List - “I am thrilled to have Kate McIver on The C List, it’s a business close to my heart and I am honoured to help continue Kate’s legacy. Her skincare was developed for her own skin whilst going through chemotherapy and we hope that it gives many people their Glow Back as it did Kate! There is so much love for the Secret Weapon Serum we just had to share the Secret.”⠀⠀

Chris, Kate's husband -  "When out of hospital, Kate spent countless hours desperately researching how she could not only help herself but for others too. She had a passion for taking care of people, which is why I'm so pleased to say she would be so proud and excited to see her company launch on The C-List. The C-List is a hub of information to help cancer patients along their journey and beyond with their skincare, something that otherwise could easily be taken for granted. Our values align perfectly with the amazing and much-needed work they're doing to support and help people in some of the toughest moments of their lives. It feels so significant to be happening at Kate's two year anniversary.  

Meet the founders of The C List  - Helen Addis and Lisa Potter Dixon⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
TV Producer and mum of three, Helen, was 39 when diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer. She found it difficult to figure out which products were gentle enough to use for her aggravated skin.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I felt really lonely trying to navigate my way through trying to make myself feel good. Finding cancer-kind products was virtually impossible.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Joining forces, Helen and Lisa approached trusted brands to curate the best products that are suitable for sensitive skin AND give results. The pair have also spoken to fellow cancer patients for tips to look and feel good. The C-List sees itself as more than a shop. It’s a club to offer support to cancer patients when they need it most - a support system to deal with the C-card that has been dealt.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
100% of net profits from the affiliate fees earned through these sales will go towards gifting a much-deserving C-Lister with a beauty hamper or a spa treatment each month. ⠀⠀
