In honor of the late trichologist Philip Kingsley, a charity collaboration has been launched to raise funds for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, a pioneer of new cancer treatments.
To honor Kingsley’s birthday, throughout June the websites philipkingsley.co.uk and philipkingsley.com donated $2 for every purchase made online to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. The Philip Kingsley clinics in both London and New York participated as well, donating $5 for each service and $2 for every product purchased.
Donations collected during the month will help fund research of consultant surgeon Gerald Gui, regarding genetic predisposition to breast cancer (of which Kingsley’s wife Joan was effected) and better ways of treating it, as well as research surrounding the improvement of breast reconstruction techniques in women who require a mastectomy following diagnosis.
Kingsley is known for creating his No Scent, No Color product line, which was one of the first in the world specifically developed to suit the needs of people undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Until he was 86 years old, Kingsley worked to revolutionize the haircare market and develop products to suit the needs of people across the globe.
