At Pioupiou, the fight against breast cancer is a cause that is particularly close to our hearts.

By participating in this cause, we can raise awareness, help save lives, and improve the quality of life for many people.
The history of this #pinkribbon movement
The Pink Ribbon has become an international symbol of breast cancer awareness. It was created in 1992 by Estée Lauder and has become iconic. The Estée Lauder Companies (ELC) played a vital role in creating and promoting this movement. For more information, you can consult their website: link .

Good actions for the prevention of breast cancer
Breast cancer can be cured in 9 out of 10 cases when it is diagnosed early. It is essential, even without symptoms, to regularly consult your gynecologist and follow the recommendations and screenings. Prevention is an essential step in the fight against breast cancer.
Here are some important tips:
- Breast Self-Examination: Ladies, take a few minutes regularly to check your breasts. Self-palpation is a simple and effective way to detect any abnormalities. Do not hesitate to consult a healthcare professional if you have any concerns.
- Mammogram: Women over 40 should discuss the frequency of mammograms with their doctor. This screening test can detect abnormalities before they become serious.
- A healthy lifestyle: Maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, and following a balanced diet are essential measures to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. Eliminating harmful products such as alcohol and nicotine is also recommended.
- Respond quickly and see a healthcare professional : If you notice changes in your chest such as unusual lumps, pain, or discharge, don't delay in talking to your doctor. Early detection is crucial in the treatment of breast cancer.
Use healthy products
Think again about your spending habits. Adopt the precautionary principle and carefully check the composition of the products you use to avoid endocrine disruptors and other harmful agents. Pioupiou products are organic and 100% natural in origin, offering gentle and healthy formulas that can be used with confidence. This is everything we want to convey through our range of products .
