The other day we received the message below regrading our Matte For Men Complete Face Care Lotion. We've held back the name of the person that sent it to us as to not embarrass them, but we do want to express our deepest gratitude for taking the time to share your story (it means more to us than you may realize):
Thanks for holding the order until the new batch of soap arrived. My BF LOVES that soap, so every time he needs the sunscreen lotion, I always sneak in an order of soap as well. :-)
I imagine that you have a lot of customers who choose your products simply because of their excellent quality, and that is reason enough. We purchase the face care lotion for an additional reason as well - it's the only protective lotion with sunscreen that my BF can tolerate wearing. He marvels at how he can tolerate it -he has literally tried dozens of brands, but they either feel like a mask or cause him to break out.
Wearing sunscreen is essential for him. He had a kidney transplant for 25 years during which time he had some issues with skin cancer due to the fact that the anti-rejection medications increase susceptibility and in the late 80's, not much was said about protecting skin from the sun. The skin cancer nearly cost him the opportunity to have another transplant when the first one declined due to age (it was only supposed to last 7 to 10 years). However, after following the surgeon's recommendation of being cancer-free for two years which caused him to be in dialysis for 26 months, he was able to receive another transplant this past March.
There is a measure of risk associated with this decision to receive this second transplant because (among other things) of the potential return of the skin cancer. The fact that he has found Matte for Men has been a godsend, actually. It's been a piece of the puzzle, if you will that has allowed him some peace of mind to follow this treatment route - along a great dermatologist, the discovery of comfortable clothing with SPF, and the myriad of health care professionals that have helped him along the way and continue to do so.
Thank you for making this product available, and please don't stop producing it!!!! :-) We are grateful for all things from even the most seemingly insignificant that have allowed him to begin living his life again, and I thought your company should know that."
