20 million US adults live with cancer and may have received chemotherapy, radiation or immunotherapy.


Due to treatment, one can develop painful skin reactions, scarring and hyperpigmentation--especially people of color who are disproportionately impacted.

Our Solution
We formulated products to ensure you look and feel great without any greasy, chalky residue.

A Stanford Story

For over 10 years, I suffered from a painful medical condition. I underwent aggressive treatment, which led to sensitive skin and minimal skin care options, particularly as a person of color. As a practicing Oncologist, I saw my patients suffer painful skin symptoms with few effective options.

While attending Stanford Business School, teachers and global leaders supported my vision to develop products for thrivers' unique needs. Many had experienced it themselves.

I founded Balmere to develop high quality, clinically tested products that enable you to live fully for years to come.

Chemo did a number on my skin. So glad we now have skin care products developed by a trustable source who really understands my needs.


When my mom was diagnosed with cancer, I felt guilty that I couldn’t be with her across the country. I was grateful I could send her something useful from a trusted source.


It's really hard to find sunscreen as a Black woman. Balmere feels good and looks even better.
