Many radiation oncology nurses and patients are using My Girls Cream, a paraben, fragrance and dye-free calendula cream sampled at 100+ radiation treatment centers in the United States. Patients and nurses like My Girls Cream because it spreads easily over delicate skin, is less expensive per ounce than other calendula creams and contains honey, known for help with healing scar tissue and rosemary for help with controlling inflammation, often side-effects of treatment. In some treatment centers, radiation oncology nurses have recommended calendula as a choice for head and neck cancer patients whom also may experience skin discomfort during radiation.
In 2011, the Oncology Nursing Society published a resource on Radiodermatitis and skin reactions based on the Society's nursing-sensitive patient outcomes and evidence-based practice (EBP) work. In the second volume of Putting Evidence Into Practice: Improving Oncology Patient Outcomes, they summarize findings on topical agents and report that patients who used calendula experienced fewer skin reactions and needed less frequent radiation treatment interruption to manage skin-related side effects. Calendula, extracted from the flower of the marigold plant, contains high amounts of flavonoids, plant-based antioxidants that protect the body against cell-damaging free radicals. It appears to have anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial effects, as well as healing properties. The healing properties are believed to be as a result of increased blood flow to the affected area.

"Our patients use My Girls Cream and absolutely love it. This cream works wonders and can literally heal up the skin overnight. The redness, discomfort, and itchiness are relieved immediately. In one patient’s words, “the cream is so soothing” and she liked that it’s non-greasy too. Presently we are providing Aquaphor for our patients, but I’m working with the staff and our manager to order My Girls Cream as an option for our patients.”

I started using this cream my third week of radiation. My
skin was very red and just about to start to blister. I
used this cream 3 times a day and my skin is starting to
turn to a tan color and I never had any broken skin. I
met with my doctor this morning and he wanted to know
what I was using because my skin seemed so much better.
Thank you for a great product.
