Monday 1st Jul Get Together Mondays - Sweary Mary aka Sasha Williams Monday 1st July 10.30am - 12.30pm In 2015 Sasha was diagnosed with a life-threatening blood cancer. After 2 stem cell transplants & more lots of chemo, her body was pretty much ruined, including her skin, hair & lungs. This left her with skin that was irritated by the most ‘sensitive’ shop bought products. Her need for good skin care & sensitive body products was important to Sasha, so she decided to make her own. After making her own successfully, she started making the odd thing for others to try & realised she loved coming up with new products to benefit others who have easily irritated skin, who struggle to find products to suit them.
