About Oceans of Blessings
The idea for Oceans of Blessings came from the Ocean twins — Allyson and Jennifer Ocean, who are passionate about using clean beauty products – i.e., products that do not contain harmful or toxic ingredients. Dr. Allyson Ocean, a leading medical oncologist in New York City at Weill Cornell/NewYork Presbyterian Hospital, is devoted to treating patients with gastrointestinal cancers and also promotes the use of safe skincare and beauty products to patients undergoing treatment for cancer.
Oceans of Blessings was created to provide healthier beauty product alternatives to patients undergoing cancer therapy and to spread the message about the importance of using safe, non-toxic beauty and skincare products every day.
Each of the members of the Board of Directors has been touched by cancer in a profound way — all are either cancer survivors, physicians that treat patients with cancer, or caregivers of loved ones dealing with cancer.
To provide healthier skincare and beauty alternatives for patients undergoing cancer treatment by giving a bag filled with safe, non-toxic skincare and beauty products that help address issues faced throughout the cancer journey. Oceans of Blessings will provide education, patient support, and healthier product alternatives to assist with cancer care and prevention.
