As part of our Decoding Skin series, we're demystifying common skin concerns and types, and sharing with you the science behind our skincare to explain exactly how our creams work.
Sensitive skin can be unpredictable. We’ve uncovered a way to help maintain the delicate ecosystem of sensitive skin by protecting against environmental damage, while regulating water loss from the skin. Because The Cream is fragrance free, uses soothing Aloe Vera extract to calm inflammation, and is free of irritating SLS and DEA, your skin will be less likely to react.
Sensitive skin can also be difficult to manage without the correct skincare regime. Characterized by feeling or appearing inflamed and red, it is often attributed to water loss or dryness in the skin, UV exposure, and environmental stressors or pollutants. With sensitivity, flare-ups can be sporadic, but the key to successfully managing this skin type is finding the right products to maintain skin’s optimal health and minimize these episodes.
Caring for sensitive skin also means strengthening the skin’s barrier with lipids and proteins that help to block free radical irritants from penetrating it. Sensitive skin reacts quickly to these, being able to help heal itself from a sensitivity attack is vital in maintaining its own balance. Using Professor Bader’s proprietary Trigger Factor Complex, The Cream is also aimed specifically at soothing sensitive skin.
Model Louisa Northcote has suffered with severe acne and sensitive skin for years and created a social movement around the condition. She’s been using The Cream regularly: “The biggest difference I’ve noticed is that my skin is a lot more glowy and hydrated and my redness has calmed down so much. It’s a cream that doesn’t just help one thing.”
