More people than ever consider themselves to have sensitive skin, and a recent European study found that up to 52% of participants reported a sensitivity of some kind.
Sensitive skin is caused by nerve endings in the top layer of skin becoming irritated. This occurs because your skin’s natural barrier function is weakened and has broken down due to a trigger. Those triggers can be anything from stress, sun damage, your genetic make up, or a million other things.
The severity of skin sensitivity, however, can vary from occasional reactions to extreme sensitivity that occurs on a daily basis. This kind of everyday reaction can cause discomfort, dry, flaky patches, blemishes, and redness.
The ingredients in your skincare and cosmetics play a major role and can be a common cause of irritation. Synthetic fragrance is the number one allergenic ingredient in personal care and beauty products and should be avoided altogether. The simpler the product, the better when it comes to sensitive skin. All of our products are made with all natural ingredients and free of irritants, but for especially sensitive people, we recommend the products shown below for their simplicity and gentleness.
