Collaborating with Skarlette
Prevent Breast Cancer
Prevent Breast Cancer (PBC) is a charity close to Heather's heart. As an ambassador for the charity, continuing to work closely with them as they are the only UK charity entirely dedicated to the prediction and prevention of breast cancer. Committed to freeing the world from the disease altogether; unlike many cancer charities, they're focused on preventing, rather than curing. Promoting early diagnosis, screening and lifestyle changes, they believe they can stop the problem before it starts. And being situated at the only breast cancer prevention centre in the UK, they're right at the front-line in the fight against the disease. You can learn lots more on PBC's website here.
Supporting primary and secondary breast cancer patients to make informed choices. Sharing information and up to date news on treatments, breast surgeries, consultants, hospitals and providing useful links.
Abcdiagnosis is an organisation and network offering peer to peer support for people with breast cancer. Aiming to reduce fear, anxiety and isolation, while supporting them to resume normal life, living both with and beyond cancer. For more information available here.

We're delighted to share common values and help support each other supporting more women.
Heather and Kate are delighted to announce Skarlette's very exciting collaboration with Cody Gapare founder of C-Lash. Shopping for post-surgical lingerie or for false lashes and finding information and inspiring stories to empower women, boost confidence and improve well-being can all be accessed in one place. Between C-Lash and Skarlette we want to make living with and after breast cancer that bit easier. Skarlette Limited is a lingerie brand founded by two friends one of whom has had double mastectomy surgery. C-Lash was founded following Codilia’s breast cancer diagnosis and the need for false eyelashes suitable for women going through chemotherapy. The two companies will be supporting each other and many women to accomplish common purposes. Their shared experiences and individual expertise enables Skarlette Limited and C-Lash to offer a richer experience for visitors to their websites. Through their collaboration women facing the unique challenges brought about by living with or after breast cancer will be able to find more tailored support and will help them to thrive and live better lives. Shop C-Lash here for all the lashes you could want.
Amanda Savage Brown
Kate and Heather are delighted to introduce their latest collaborator who is supporting women through acceptance and loss when they face explant surgery, following Breast Implant Illness. Amanda Savage Brown is a scientist turned women's self-acceptance therapist & coach. In 2018, she removed her breast implants and recovered from undiagnosed breast implant illness. Now, she helps women find their way through the mental and emotional side of breast implants and their removal. You may have heard, breast implants are not lifetime or problem-free devices. At some point, you may want or need to remove yours, and you may feel uneasy every step of the way. Even if you want to be implant-free, you may struggle as you move toward explant and as you adjust to your body afterwards. You can learn so much from Amanda and the work she is doing by visiting her website here.
Debi Piper Style
Debi Piper is a personal stylist, she’s passionate about clothes and fashion, but more importantly, how to make women look and feel great. Debi has joined Skarlette as a collaborator to help make the life of women going through this journey that bit easier. Women who have body altering surgery due to breast cancer have their confidence knocked and can really struggle finding clothes to suit their new shape, so Debi is a perfect fit for our community.
Debi worked for many years as a graphic designer but was always obsessed with clothes and image. She decided to change her career direction and became a commercial stylist, working on location shoots in various countries in Europe and Africa. However, when Covid hit in 2020, her work stopped very suddenly.
Three months into lockdown, Debi discovered a lump in her left breast and was diagnosed with primary breast cancer. It was during chemotherapy and after surgery, that she realised she was going to have to change up her style, not just to improve how she looked, but to boost her confidence. This self-care project blossomed into the idea of using her knowledge and expertise to help other women, particularly those going through a similar experience. Now a fully qualified Women’s Personal Stylist and Colour Expert, Debi offers ‘how to dress your body shape’ advice, ‘find your style personality’ sessions and ‘seasonal colour analysis’ consultations to brighten up your skin tone and your life! She has a saying, “It’s about so much more than clothes!” It certainly is, and Debi can help you get your style mojo back.
You can find out more about Debi and her services on her website.
Harriet & Olive
Three of us sat around the table enveloped by the heavenly scent of Neroli. Talking about the healing and calming properties, as well as the aroma, it was a natural progression to agree to offer this product to Skarlette customers. A little bit about Kay;
"I’ve always loved candles but worried about the harmful effects of burning petroleum based products at home, so I decided to teach myself candle making. After many months of testing, Harriet and Olive was founded in my Cheshire kitchen. The company is named after my grandmothers.
For many years I worked in a health food shop where I acquired a huge interest in all things health related. Whilst working there I had a casual chat with a customer that changed the course of my life. From this encounter, I became a professional reflexologist. I practised reflexology in a doctors surgery, an osteopathic practice and a cancer centre. During this time I learnt the value of many different alternative therapies and still have a firm belief in them. Aromatherapy has always been one of my favourite."
Harriet & Olive couldn't be a better match to work with Skarlette. You can shop their own products here.
