Gold Winner at the Pure Beauty Awards 2018, Ultracalming Barrier Defence Booster is a concentrated oil booster that soothes, nourishes and moisturises to restore a balance to sensitive skin. A Triple Defence Complex nourishes the skin, relieves dryness and reinforces the barrier integrity against future irritation. Use prior to, or mix with your moisturiser for Ultracalming™ benefits.

How does it work?

Squalene locks in moisture whilst soothing Oat Oil helps to combat sensitivity and support healthy looking skin. Tetrahydrocucurminoids, an active constituent of Turmeric Root act a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. The Oat Kernel Oil reduces irritation and redness plus it hydrates the epidermal layers to improve skins barrier. Sensitive skin is balanced, redness is reduced and skin is relieved, hydrated and restored.

Is it for me?

Treat the multiple triggers behind inflammation for lasting relief from sensitivity flare-ups.

Itching, burning, stinging and redness are the obvious signs of sensitive skin. The triggers behind these sensations are less clear: genetics, hormones, stress, chemical assaults, foods and even aggressive skin treatments can intensify skin’s highly reactive state. The common thread behind irritation, flushing and stinging is inflammation. When paired with the loss of skin’s protective barrier, skin health is compromised and becomes highly reactive.

UltraCalming™ contains UltraCalming™ Complex, exclusive complex clinically proven to control neurogenic and immunogenic inflammatory pathways that lead to skin sensitivity.

  • Use daily. At first thought a small amount wouldn’t be sufficient but it sure does have plenty of coverage.
