Let's Talk Sensitive Skin 

Sensitive skin can be super frustrating. To sum it up: sensitive skin is a skin type that some are born with. Whether it is triggered by the weather, a certain product or even to other conditions such as allergies and rosacea there are ways to help balance sensitive skin. 

Let's Take a Look at Some Research

While it is important to recognize everybody's skin is different, there are similarities when it comes to skin-sensitivity. Many people report having sensory effects, such as itching, burning, stinging, tightness and dryness. In 2018, a study showed that people with sensitive skin have a genetic imbalance of lipids in their barrier function.
Knowing this, there are plenty of ways that the symptoms of sensitive skin can be addressed! 
According to dermatologists, by using a synergist effect of several ingredients of natural origin you can soothe the symptoms of sensitive skin: 
  • Aloe, has been proved in studies to help reduce seeable redness and promote calmness while hydrating the skin and helping to restore it's lipid barrier. 
  • Honey, which is a natural moisturizer that contains phenolic acids and antioxidants to help supports calm, healthy skin
  • Sunflower oil, is rich in linoleic acid which is an essential fatty acid in skin
