Our Beloved Line from Violets Are Blue is treatment safe and has been tailored specifically to the needs of women who are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation. Many women are generally not told as they begin treatment, that their skin will change dramatically.
To respond to these changes, we searched out oils, butters, and herbs that would best meet their needs. Violets Are Blue's Beloved Line is made up of unscented, natural products designed to alleviate these skin issues.
In 2011, Cynthia Besteman was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer; with no family history and healthy living habits the diagnosis came as a shock. After studying about the way our bodies can manifest problems as a result of our lifestyles and the products we use, Cynthia cleared her household of any possible pollutants and switched over to an entirely organic lifestyle. She was shocked by the mislabeling of skincare that was called natural, it contained parabens, sulfates and other chemicals known to cause skin irritation, and work as endocrine disruptors linked to cancer and reproductive concerns in women.
After undergoing treatment, Cynthia took her newfound love of crafting skincare products for herself, family and friends and created Violets Are Blue in 2013. She fused her knowledge of natural ingredients with a team of industry experts and biochemists to work together and research oils, test consistencies, and formulate naturally-derived products – each one a labor of love. The Violets Are Blue philosophy is that skincare does not have to be complicated, in fact, keeping it basic is best.
