Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is common and becoming increasingly so. Around 60%* of women self-diagnose with sensitive skin at some point in their life. The severity can vary, from mild itching and occasional red patches, to on-going and distressing conditions such as eczema, dermatitis or rosacea. The causes of sensitive skin can also vary, but most research points to skin becomes sensitised as a result of long term exposure to irritants, for example in cosmetics or cleaning products.

Sensitive skin care is about choosing products with low irritation potential. Keeping a product /food diary and patch testing products on the inside of your forearm for 24hrs can help identify specific sensitivity and potential triggers. In most cases, sensitive skin responds to simply reducing the number of products used around the home each day and seeking out skincare, toiletries and cosmetics with truly natural and wholesome ingredients. Bear in mind that the skin on the face tends to be more sensitive than elsewhere on the body so demands extra caution and care.

Creating skin care for sensitive skin prone to allergy, eczema and rosacea is at the very core of what we do. Our expertise is underpinned by organic certification, which guarantees both the purity of our products as well as the absence of the many common cosmetic chemicals that can trigger flare-ups.  These include artificial fragrance, colour, preservatives and sulphates. For additional peace of mind, we exclude the potential allergens peanut oil, wheat, soy, dairy, salicylates and common tree nut oils.  

Our whole range follows this free-from philosophy, but there are some products especially formulated for the care of very sensitive and easily irritated skin.
