BOSTON — My Girls Cream (formerly known as My Girls Radiation Cream) is now available at select pharmacies, oncology boutiques and post-surgery specialty retailers, the manufacturer announced on Wednesday.
The skin cream, designed for breast cancer patients undergoing radiation, can be purchased at such oncology boutiques as Mass General Hospital’s Images Boutique, such post-surgery specialty retailers as Lady Grace, and online via Wilkinson Pharmacy and Lots To Live For. McKesson Pharmaceutical will make the cream available to its retailers, including Fagen Pharmacy.
My Girls’ creamy formula, now with a new look, has won praise from people undergoing radiation therapy as it spreads easily over skin that may become compromised after radiation. My Girls Cream is nongreasy, nonstaining and free of fragrance and dye.
“Having My Girls Cream available at retailers located nearby sampling hospitals and radiation centers is a great convenience for cancer patients who can pick up their medications and also find an over-the-counter cream that helps maintain the healthy appearance of their skin after radiation treatments” stated Linda Griffith, a breast cancer survivor and new VP customer care for My Girls Skin Care.
