RadiaGuard Skincare Helps Protect Radiation Therapy Patients

April 5, 2012 - Now, the RadiaGuard line includes Beginning and Advanced Treatment Lotions, Post Treatment Cream, Metallic Free Deodorant and two Moisturizing Lip Relief lip treatments. This scientifically advanced skincare system is specifically designed to counteract the effects of radiation and includes natural ingredients like marigold extract, aloe, jojoba oil and Vitamin E. While RadiaGuard products are reasonably priced as individual products, the new set of all products is value-priced at under $85. Further discounts are available to patients at radiation treatment centers and hospitals. No prescription is required.

“We consider the new RadiaGuard treatment line a support group for the skin. If patients take care of their skin starting with the very first treatment and continuing throughout radiation therapy, RadiaGuard can help prevent radiation dermatitis and leathery-looking skin and just make the experience more manageable. The products go on smoothly and are not greasy,” according to Lynda Smith, R.N., a nurse familiar with the product line.

The ingredients used in RadiaGuard products are completely safe to use. While originally designed by nurses for radiation patients, the RadiaGuard skincare system may also be used by any individual dealing with damaged, at-risk skin. The uniquely compounded ingredients have received many reviews from patients across the US.
