The training provided by Skcin helps hair and beauty professionals identify the signs and symptoms of skin cancer and melanoma. The charity are keen to see the training made mandatory for all staff working within our sector, as it is clear that early detection can save lives, as well as mitigate the costs to the NHS.


The hair and beauty industry has a powerful role to play due to the unique relationships industry professionals have with their clients. The inclusion of national standards which cover this vital topic will mean that many more lives can be saved.
