What are the best ingredients for Sensitive skin?

First we should define what makes your skin sensitive?

There are three major biological mechanisms that are responsible: alteration of the cutaneous barrier, hyperactivity of the cutaneous nervous system and oxidative stress (attack by free radicals).

Alteration of the barrier function promotes skin dehydration and penetration of potentially irritating agents. In addition,  skin secretes excess neurotransmitters, as well as pro-inflammatory cytokines (substances involved in inflammation, produced by skin cells). These neurotransmitters invade the tissues and cause the vessels to dilate, creating discomfort and excessive reactivity.

There is also an overproduction of free radicals. And external aggressions do not help matters. Especially pollution, because, as soon as the skin barrier is altered, polluting particles can penetrate more easily. Cold, heat, wind, tobacco and other stresses can also attack it.

Before we go into the ingredients list here are a few guidelines you should always follow in case your skin has become sensitized

  • Limit make-up to a minimum by choosing products from specific ranges formulated for sensitive skin
  • Do not change your cream too often, to avoid any intolerance to new ingredients.
  • Avoid touching skin as little as possible: the less it is stimulated, even by simple contact, the better it is.
  • Do not rub it, but touch it with your fingertips, and do not use a sponge or press with the cotton while removing make-up.
  • Avoid excessively hot baths, high pressure showers and other sauna
  • Do not eat too many spicy dishes, limit alcoholic drinks.
  • Avoid sudden temperature changes if possible.

In addition here is a list of ingredients that we recommend for sensitive skin that you should always be on the lookout for

1.Plant extracts such as Roman chamomile, witch hazel, calendula and cornflower, known for their soothing and decongestant action, are present in organic cosmetics

2.Lime build-up on the skin after a shower can also make the skin less comfortable and create a feeling of tightness. On the face, you can use a gentle tonic such as tonic lotion or floral water to remove the remaining lime residue. Then apply your usual care, your skin will only be softer


3.CBD devoid of THC and therefore psychotropic substance is beneficial to sensitive and dry skin. Very nourishing and rich in omega 3 and 6, hemp oil (or hemp seed oil) also calms irritation and redness.

  1. Bee products (royal jelly or propolis, for example), honey benefits from remarkable beauty and well-being properties. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, honey fights against skin aging, infections, irritations, burns, acne or even scars.
  2. Shea Butter :Among all the vegetable butters that exist on the market, it is certainly Shea butter that does the most good for reactive skin. Admittedly, it is very hydrating, incorporated in body, face and hair care products (the driest skin will adopt it for life!) But it is also anti-inflammatory and regenerating and therefore relieves feelings of discomfort and irritation. like eczema, or acne scars. To consume without moderation!
  1. marshmallow root extract: If it is used internally to calm dental pain, coughs, inflammation of the throat or digestive problems, externally too, marshmallow root works wonders. Mixed with floral water or vegetable oil, this powder delivers all its moisturizing, soothing and regenerating properties: to use as a face mask or to apply to the scalp to calm irritation.
  1. pomegranate seed oil :Ultra rich in anti-oxidants, pomegranate is a favorite ingredient to fight against skin aging and restore radiance to the skin. Omega 5 and the pomegranate seed oil contains have a remarkable anti-inflammatory action, to regenerate skin damaged by eczema or psoriasis and calm irritation, redness and burns. Reactive skin could not ask for better!

The Incredible virtues of the Mango Fruit

Mango is the second most consumed tropical fruit in the world


If you are dieting, do feel free to add one mango a day on your list. The caloric values of the mango are as follows: One full Mango contains about 105 calories, but that’s not all: It has Fibre, natural sugars, Protein, Vitamins A, B6, B9, C, Iron, Potassium and our favorite Polyphenols, which are super antioxydants that protect against swelling and inflammation, inside and out of your body. Here are a few additional reasons to eat this super fruit.

  1. Mangoes help slow the aging process with vitamins A and C, which help the body produce collagen. Collagen helps slow the aging of the skin, promotes the health of blood vessels and body tissues. Similarly, vitamins A and C are antioxidants, which fight against the deterioration caused by free radicals and protect the body against the harmful effects of oxidative stress
  2.  Mango is rich in iron, so it is an excellent natural solution for people with anemia. Pregnant and menopausal women can indulge in mangoes as this will increase their iron and calcium levels at the same time


3.     Rich in polyphenols One of the few studies specifically done on mango has shown that mango juice has an anti-cancer effect on cells. This could be       explained by the presence of polyphenols in the mango juice. In fact, this substance has a high antioxidant content that protects the body’s cells from damage caused by free radicals (substances in the body responsible for premature cell aging).


4.   Mango improves digestion On the one hand, the soluble fiber found in its composition helps to facilitate the digestion and elimination of food. On the other hand, it contains digestive enzymes that help digest proteins by participating in their decomposition. As a result, mango is a very good ally against constipation, indigestion, excess acidity and hemorrhoids.



5. Body scrub Make a paste with mango puree, honey and coconut milk and use it for a body scrub, you will feel that your skin is tender and smooth


6  And let’s not forget Mango Butter for the skin and the hair.
