Beauty Changes Lives Scholarship Opportunity (Advanced Studies)

Horst M. Rechelbacher “Oncology Skincare” Scholarship for Licensed Estheticians

In 1978, Horst Rechelbacher founded the Aveda Corporation, a global plant-based cosmetic company, & ushered a new consciousness into the world of beauty.

Two decades later he shifted focus to Intelligent Nutrients, a health & beauty company that lives to the highest standards of 100% food-based, safe, non-toxic, organic ingredients. All of Horst’s innovations revolved around beauty products that would care for professionals, their guests & the planet through the power of pure flower & plant essences.

Properly caring for guests of the salon & spa industry was always Horst’s intent. Knowing how to care for a guest that has a cancer diagnosis takes proper knowledge to safely & compassionately care for clients with individualized care to meet their specific needs.

The Oncology Spa Solutions® training started in the US in 2013 & has changed the lives of over 4,500+ students & many more clients. The success of this training confirmed to us that we as human beings have a desire to CARE for others & just need the right education to feel CONFIDENT in serving & caring for those that need us the MOST.

The “Oncology Skincare” scholarship is created for licensed estheticians or licensed business owners that are seeking to better serve their clientele and especially those that may be facing cancer. It will also help them become more knowledgeable about how to care & treat these clients with SAFE non-toxic products. Those who may be facing cancer can find joy & rejuvenation when visiting their spa & esthetician.
