DDF (Doctor’s Dermatologic Formula) and Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization have teamed up for women everywhere in a skincare-donation project this fall.

Just last month DDF introduced its Cellular Cleansing Complex, an exfoliating cleanser that prepares skin for other DDF protecting and toning treatments. The formulation is a gentle cream base, colored the pale pink of breast cancer awareness ribbons. For every purchase of this product during October and November, DDF will direct a percentage to support Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization. They will donate a minimum of 5,000 dollars.

Y-ME is dedicated to survivors of breast cancer, offering a website (www.y-me.org) full of health information, and a 24-hour counseling hotline made up entirely of women who have survived breast cancer themselves. Y-ME is particularly devoted to women of limited resources, providing support groups, wigs and prostheses, and hosting prevention workshops.

DDF Founder Howard Sobel, M.D., has joined with Y-ME’s mission, wishing to “do everything we can to advance breast cancer awareness, and provide support for breast cancer patients, their families and survivors.” He encourages women to do a self-exam regularly, along with caring regularly for their skin, for preventative health care.

Cellular Cleansing Complex may be purchased online at http://www.ddfskincare.comwww.ddfskincare.com, and at finer department stores like Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom.

For breast cancer support and information, Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization may be reached at 1-800-221-2141 (English) and 1-800-986-9505 (Spanish).
