Is your skin really sensitive or are your products too harsh?

Updated: Jan 9

Quite often the products we are using can cause irritation, leaving us to believe we have sensitive skin, when in reality, the products we are using are the culprit.

Mainstream products utilize synthetic ingredients which end up irritating our skin. Sensitivities like redness, dryness and flaking are all indications of a product that may be too harsh for your skin.

A secret I learned when I began formulating safe and healthy skincare: Skin care SHOULDN'T sting! Skin care should not sting, tingle or burn on a daily basis. If it does, you'll get redness, peeling and flaking.

A better alternative: safe, gentle, natural ingredients. Our skin absorbs everything we put on it. A healthy approach to safe skin care is using plant-based ingredients.

Safe ingredients that are gentle for skin:

ROSE HIPS: When it comes to cosmetics, rose hip seed oil is one of best plant oils you can use on your skin. This oil is a beautiful plant alternative to synthetic retinol. It is gentle, helping to even skin tone while toning down redness. Find it HERE!

LICORICE: The antioxidant-rich ingredients of the licorice plant can help shield skin from free radical damage. Moreover, licorice root can help to lighten dark spots on the skin and treat uneven skin tone, resulting in glowing, healthy skin. Find it HERE!

VITAMIN C: The variety if Vitamin C in skincare matters. We use a gentle Vitamin C that will stimulate collagen production as well as clarifying and brightening the skin by inhibiting the production of pigment thereby promoting a more even skin tone. Unlike ascorbic acid, it will not exfoliate or irritate skin. Find it HERE!

GREEN TEA: Green Tea Extract is known to help diminish the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Its antimicrobial and astringent properties along with its ability to balance the skin’s oil production and minimize the appearance of enlarged pores make Green Tea Extract ideal for use in products that target acne breakouts. Find it HERE!

GREEN COFFEE OIL: The oil is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids which provide protection from the effects of free radicals, restore moisture to skin, help the appearance of puffy eyes while improving the production of collagen. Find it HERE!


Your skin care products shouldn't be painful. You can achieve luminous, healthy skin with these safe, natural ingredients you trust. You can stop worrying about what you’re putting on your body and be confident about your skin and your products.
