World Cancer Day

by | Feb 5, 2019

On Monday 4th February it was World Cancer Day, which is also a year to the day since Skcin – a charity which raises awareness, promotes prevention and early detection of skin cancers – launched the national accreditation programme, MASCED (Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection), a training programme for hair, health and beauty industry professionals.

In the past year over 8,000 professionals have registered with it nationwide, and Skcin have received many reports of how accredited professionals have spotted both non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers, putting their new found knowledge into action.

“The MASCED Accreditation programme is a unique and innovative addition to the British beauty Industry”, says Skcin CEO Marie Tudor. “It harnesses the power of the British beauty professional, enabling them to become powerful advocates in the fight against skin cancer and save lives”.

To register for the MASCED accreditation, beauty professionals should visit masced.uk
