The Personal Care Products Council Foundation was established in 1989 by the Personal Care Products Council (formerly CTFA). The Council saw the opportunity for the industry to help women maintain self-esteem and gain confidence while undergoing cancer treatment through the Look Good...Feel Better program. The program provides women help and encouragement to cope with the appearance side effects of cancer treatment through two hour workshops conducted by trained volunteer professionals. In addition, individual consultations, self-help materials, a web site, bilingual programs, a teen program, and information for men are also available.
Luzca Bien...Sientase Mejor, the Look Good...Feel Better bilingual program was introduced in 1991 and is available throughout the U.S. either as dedicated Spanish language sessions, or as bilingual programs, All program materials are available in Spanish.

Reviews for Personal Care Products Council Foundation
I was asked to fill in as a volunteer for one of the look good feel better programs. Having never done it before, i wasn't sure what to expect. However, It felt so good to be able to help a group of women battling cancer to feel better about themselves. These women have lost their hair, their eyebrows, and their confidence. Showing the women neat makeup tricks, helping with wigs, and sharing stories, helped take away their insecurities.Its a wonderful experience!
