(MALIN + GOETZ) Support the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund

While the spotlight is on breast cancer this month, we shouldn't forget another silent killer, ovarian cancer. (MALIN + GOETZ) hasn't. A family-owned and operated apothecary in New York's Chelsea neighborhood, the company specializes in easy-to-use two-step regimens that offer head-to-toe pH balance for both women and men. Starting with sensitive skin first, each advanced formula blends trusted natural ingredients with gentle performance to address skin sensitivities, irritations, and allergies resulting from unnecessary product ingredients and harsh chemicals (no detergents, colorants, or synthetic fragrances). Another plus? The company does not test on animals.

In addition to their skin care products, (MALIN + GOETZ) makes gifts, and sales of their Mojito Candle ($48) benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. This delicious candle has top notes of lime, rum, mint leaves, and basil; middle notes of spearmint and chinese mint; and base notes of white musk. Salivating? After 60 hours of burn time, you can use the glass jar for the real thing. I'm tasting the lime as I write!

You can read about the company at their Web site. Their Dark Rum candle is featured in the October Allure with an Editor's Choice Award for Scent. For a list of locations that carry (MALIN + GOETZ) products, click on this link.

In the meantime, let's pause to remember the many notable women who succumbed to this disease - including Liz Tiberis, editor of Harper's Bazaar; Ann Dunham, Barak Obama's mother; and actresses Sandy Dennis, Joan Hackett, Jessica Tandy, and Gilda Radner - along with those who weren't famous, but loved just as much.
