Il corpo ritrovato
RVB is proud to support and sponsor one of the most important non-profit associations in the Italian scientific community: IL CORPO RITROVATO.
The Scientific Board “IL CORPO RITROVATO'' was founded in 2010 as a non-profit
scientific association for the research and studies on dermocosmetological skin care of
cancer patients. Undergoing cancer treatment, whether it be surgical, chemotherapy or
radiotherapy, always results in traumatic, inflammatory, oxidative skin damage.
The objective of the Board is not only to classify, but also to prevent, contain and treat these
side effects. A recent study among 540 patients who are undergoing cancer treatment
reveals that about 85% of them are concerned about maintaining their appearance and
For example, the main fear of those who undergo cancer treatment still is hair loss, which
almost always is a side effect of traditional chemotherapy, as well as of more innovative
forms of treatment. The fear of not recognising themselves when they look in the mirror, of
changing appearance, of showing the signs of inner suffering on their skin almost always
cause additional suffering to cancer patients.
The experts of "Il Corpo Ritrovato" work together with various specialists and are committed
to preventing this by not only ensuring a Dermo-Cosmetological examination, but also by
treating the side effects resulting from different types of treatments from a strictly
dermatological point of view.
