Here at Natural Beauty, we’ve talked a lot about celebrities who endorse and create beauty products with questionable ingredients and production standards, but let’s turn our attention to one celebrity who took her cancer diagnosis and turned it into an opportunity to advocate for women everywhere.
After a late night spent watching “The Nanny” reruns on Nick At Night, I looked up Fran Drescher to see what she’s up to these days. I soon found out that after battling cancer and writing a book about it – titled “Cancer Schmancer” – Fran developed the FranBrand skincare line for HSN.
Enraged by the knowledge that many of the products she had used over the years – particularly personal care products which are, of course, targeted at women who are then vulnerable to diseases like breast and cervical cancer – may have contributed to the disease she developed later in life, Fran took action. She started the Cancer Schmancer movement and is fighting for females to take political action and demand better quality personal care products as well as more effective cancer detection and prevention methods.
Have any of you natural beauties tried the FranBrand skincare products? Are they all they’re cracked up to be?
