The Nutrimetics philosophy has always been to help people help others. We are so proud of how passionate, you, our customers are when it comes to supporting great causes; especially our chosen charity partners, Look Good Feel Better (LGFB). For over 30 years, we have donated skincare and make-up to be used at Look Good Feel Better workshops at over 180 venues around the country, plus many of our Consultants regularly volunteer across both Australia and New Zealand. These workshops help people to feel empowered and ready to face their cancer diagnosis with confidence. Read on for all the reasons why LGFB holds a special place in our hearts at Nutrimetics.

Helping people face cancer with confidence

As a business we love supporting the incredible work the team at LGFB do because of the positive impact that beauty can have on a person undergoing treatment. Plus, not only can people find a great support network through the Look Good Feel Better program, they receive the very best advice for everything wellbeing related.  Most recently, we encouraged our Consultants to sell limited edition ‘Care Packs’ by offering a $25 product donation to Look Good Feel Better for every pack sold. Proving the Nutrimetics community is committed to helping others, the team sold 4,300 packs, resulting in a product donation valued at $107, 500.

What is Look Good Feel Better?

Look Good Feel Better is a free national community service program, run by the Cancer Patients Foundation, dedicated to teaching cancer patients how to manage the appearance-related side-effects caused by treatment for any type of cancer. Since the first workshop in Westmead, Sydney in 1990, more than 150,000 women, men and teens have participated in the program across Australia and New Zealand.

What do they do?

All services provided by Look Good Feel Better have been developed with the purpose of empowering those undergoing cancer treatment, equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to face their cancer diagnosis with confidence. These workshops are run by a team of dedicated volunteers who cover skincare techniques to address common side effects like dryness and sun sensitivity, make-up tips to help correct and conceal redness, sallowness, pigmentation and dark circles as well as techniques for drawing on eyebrows and advice on head wear including scarf styling and wig selection.

How do Nutrimetics help? 

We have been supporting LGFB since the nineties. We regularly run special offers in our monthly brochures and email promotions to donate both money and products to the cause. We give both dermatologically tested and naturally enriched make-up and skincare that's included in LGFB care packs and special gift packs. Our Consultants are also incredible when it comes to both volunteering and holding charity events that raise money to support LGFB. 

Proudly supporting LGFB for over 30 years

Nutrimetics have donated both cash and products to LGFB for over 30 years. We love supporting this charity because so many of our staff, customers and Consultant's lives have been directly affected by cancer. 

How can you help?

You can get involved in lots of ways, from donating to holding a fundraising event to purchasing one of our LGFB charity promotions, (check our special offers regularly) where we regularly donate $1 for every product sold to the cause. Fundraising can take on any shape or form; from morning teas, to Gala Balls, trivia nights and more. All ideas and events are encouraged and celebrated, as every dollar makes a difference to the life of someone undergoing treatment for cancer.
