Our products are suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Sensitive skin is particularly vulnerable to irritating ingredients and many of us know what it’s like to struggle with break outs, irritation and redness. Your skin feels uncomfortable, you feel uncomfortable and your confidence and self-esteem suffer. We understand sensitive skin and the importance of maintaining the skin’s natural barrier. For this reason, Claire Hill Australia excludes the use of fragrances and sunscreens for their potentially irritating effect. Yes, fragrances do smell nice and yes, consumers are often compelled to buy a product for its scent. The reality is however, that fragrances frequently cause a sensitising reaction on the skin. You may not notice any initial changes but the damage is cumulative with signs of aggravation silently occurring, showing up on the surface of your skin years later.
We also avoid adding SPF to our products. Claire Hill Australia 100% advocate the use of sunscreen in a skin care regime to keep skin healthy in the sun, but we do not believe that it is in your best interest to buy products with a built in SPF. Sunscreen ingredients can cause allergies such as contact dermatitis, rashes, itchy skin, blisters and swelling. Individuals with sensitive skin know that it’s not always as easy as slip-slop-slap. You don’t want to look sunburnt before you even step outside.
Allergies or no allergies, we still recommend a seperate sunscreen. Why? Because a sunscreen mixed into a moisturiser decreases the moisturisers ability to soak deep into your skin to deliver its goodness. Your moisturiser cannot penetrate through a sunscreen barrier effectively and is often left sitting on the surface of your skin. Secondly, mixing an SPF into another product dilutes the sunscreens formula, meaning the amount you put on your face will not be enough to get the coverage required. Claire Hill Australia highly recommend applying a good quality face sunscreen (that is suitable for your skin type) after your moisturiser to help create ‘exceptional agers’.
