Clean healing

Life Science

A special bra can help detect early-stage breast cancer. When it comes to skin cancer, early detection is equally vital.

In large parts of sub-Saharan Africa, however, treatment is either scarcely available or unaffordable. Which is why a 14-year-old schoolboy has developed a soap to help those affected access a potential cure.

Alongside coconut oil, shea butter and honey, the soap contains 50% salicylic acid, 30% glycolic acid and 20% Vitamin A acid.

A combination that penetrates deep into the skin’s pores during washing, reactivating protective skin cells weakened by cancer. Thus revitalised, the same cells can take up the fight against cancer once more.
