By LIVING NATURE – www.livingnature.com

Living Nature’s highly effective, clinically proven Sensitive Skin products offer a natural skincare solution for sensitive, very dry or compromised skin, harnessing certified natural ingredients and guided by over 30 years of skincare expertise.

Dermal tested by an independent Australian laboratory, our new range is clinically proven to non-irritating. The range works to nourish and protect while visibly soothing and calming skin.

But don’t the existing Living Nature products work for sensitive skin?

Living Nature produce one of the world’s safest ranges of skincare and beauty products and have an extremely low reaction rate to our existing products. We are aware that in spite of how gentle our standard products are, most do contain fragrances, which can cause irritation to sufferers of chronic skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, allergies or extreme sensitivities. We’ve developed products that are completely free of added fragrance and clinically proven to be non-irritating. 

Sensitive Skin Heroes

To create this range we’ve utilised hero ingredients with some astounding skin calming and restorative properties.

Harakeke Flax Extract – renowned since ancient Maori times for its medicinal & skin calming benefits, this clear polysaccharide gel from the base of NZ’s native flax plant is already a key ingredient in many Living Nature products. Its anti-inflammatory and soothing capabilities help deliver the immediate relief and cooling sensation the Sensitive Skin products offer.

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil – from cooking to skincare, this wonder compound is taking the world by storm, and its reputation is well deserved. New to the Living Nature hero ingredient ranks, the high quality cold pressed oil included in our formulations has exceptional purity and is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, proven to penetrate skin cell membranes to help make connective tissues strong and flexible. Its Lauric Acid component provides anti-microbial benefits to help clear skin rashes.

Cetearyl olivate, Sorbitan olivate (emulsifiers from olive oil) – are scientifically proven to increase the integrity of skin’s barrier function to maintain optimal physiological function.  They provide an environmental shield to help prevent the trans-epidermal penetration of allergens while inhibiting the cellular production of Interleukin-1 Alfa, responsible for inflammation. With clinical studies supporting their anti-aging benefits they also soothe & calm skin.

Caring for Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin generally describes skin with reduced tolerance to cosmetics and personal care products. 

Sensitised – ‘Sensitised’ skin is a reflection of your environment, lifestyle and physiology

Sensitive – A true ‘sensitive skin’ condition is caused by a genetic predisposition

Skin reflects inner health as well as the care it is given, so it is important to look after it from the inside and the outside!  For optimum sensitive skin health and gentle care:

  • Drink lots of water to help flush away toxins and rehydrate.
  • Avoid excess caffeine & alcohol, as both are very dehydrating.
  • Eat lots of nutrient rich vegetables, especially green, chlorophyll-rich, leafy vegetables (for acne sufferers) and Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids.
  • Manage your stress. Stress can make your skin more sensitive as your immune system is compromised.
  • Smoking damages collagen and elastin fibres, contributing to wrinkles and decreased circulation, making the skin look dull and lifeless.
  • Minimise sun damage risk by wearing a large hat and protective clothing.
  • Always remove makeup before going to sleep. Gently cleanse your skin every night to allow it to breathe and renew.
  • Treat your skin with love and care. Be gentle – cleanse gently, pat it dry (no harsh rubbing and stretching), nourish and protect it daily.
  • We recommend our Sensitive Skin range to cleanse, tone, moisturise and protect sensitive skin – clinically proven to be non-irritating. Click here to see the range.

Particularly for sensitive skin, we recommend patch testing on inner arm area, then under chin, each for 24 hours, prior to using any skincare product on your face.
