Local Beautycounter independent consultants recently donated a collection of all-natural body products to the Oncology and Infusion Therapy Center at Monadnock Community Hospital.

The consultants, in collaboration with European Esthetics, donated nearly 80 handmade bags, each valued around $40. The beauty bags are specifically designed to provide comfort and relief to cancer patients undergoing treatment. Donations included a variety of all-natural products, including nourishing lip gloss, body butters aimed to help alleviate the effects of radiation scars, soothing teas and personalized notes of encouragement.

Financial contributions from the community helped make these donations, along with Beautycounter consultants Denise Chatel, Ellen Smith and Ruth Clark.

"It is such a difficult time of year for these patients, so it is so nice to give back and offer comfort,” stated Smith.
