On a Personal Note: Skin Cancer Product; Bethesda Suncreen Soap

Hi friends! I wanted to share this wonderful product and company which is making strides for not only skin cancer protection but cancer patients. I recently learned about Bethesda Skincare. I cannot remember where, but I am certain it was in a small blurb in a magazine at a doctors office. I went home and Googled the name. I was delighted to see what a nice website I had been directed to! The more I read, I could identify with how this company was formed. As with most companies, they are created out of necessity. The owner, Jamie Doss, created many products out of necessity due to family health issues. I like how Bethesda Skincare was created to heal a family and bring "healing" to your body through your skin - the mission for Bethesda is "to heal." They have spent over twenty years providing a valuable product.

As you know, my skin cancer battle continues. I am still crazy about slathering myself in suncreen, but I have to admit, there are days when even I get tired of rubbing it in and making sure I cover all of my exposed areas. It can be a chore, and sometimes it is a bit sticky...

Several weeks ago I bought several bars, around $8.00 each. I have used the soap every day and cannot recommend this enough! I have found the scent to be absolutely delightful. The soap is creamy and leaves your skin feeling very soft and supple. I like knowing I have SPF 10 protection IN THE SHOWER! It makes one less step when I am getting ready in the morning. The soap is a pretty sage green color and the scent is so light and clean smelling, almost citrusy! It does not get very bubbly, but it is very soothing and moisturizing.


Bethesda Suncreen Soap is a combination of healing and therapeutic properties that moisturizes as it protects the body from the harmful rays of the sun. The soap leaves behind an unnoticeable protective layer that provides daily sun protection.

In honor of Melanie, Jamie's sister who is fighting stage 4 colon and liver cancer, Bethesda Skincare is offering a FREE bar of soap to cancer patients! If you know of anyone who is suffering with cancer please send the name, address and the recipient's condition to store@bethesdaskincare.com and be sure to reference The Melanie Policy. Because chemotherapy and cancer treatment depletes the skin of it's nutrients and causes it to become fragile, Bethesda Sunscreen Soap was created with a combination of healing and therapeutic properties to strengthen, restore and protect the skin.

Please spread the word on this product! Maybe there is someone you know who is going through cancer treatments and can benefit from a special skin care treat. I can tell you my skin feels very good and best of all, protected from the sun with SPF 10. I know $8 is a bit pricey, but you really are doing yourself a favor with extra protection and you are worth every penny!

I hope this finds you well!

Best!

Hi SASSY: I agree with you! It's hard to know what products to use, but I was really impressed with the quality of this product. I am quite picky, especially with my skin! This is why I am sharing the information on my blog, maybe it will help someone. I like so much the way the company is giving back to cancer patients - you do not often see that. Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts! Best! xoxo

I fell upon your blog and thanks for sharing the information. My daughter had a problem with her finger nail and just finished her 3rd surgery. It is a crazy story how we discovered skin cancer of the nail. I need to write about it on my blog sooner then later. Off to purchase the soap.
