Skin: Below the Surface

We are excited to announce our involvement in the British Skin Foundation’s programme in partnership with ITN Business - Skin: Below the Surface.

The programme uses personal stories to explore the critical connection between the mind and the skin.

"Skin: Below the Surface will amplify patient voices and create awareness around the psychological impact of skin conditions. 60% of the UK population currently suffer, or have suffered, from a skin condition and the research showing the impact on emotional wellbeing is clear. Whilst often overlooked as a cosmetic issue, we know the enormity of the impact skin conditions can have on mental health. The British Skin Foundation is looking forward to the opportunity to highlight the issue and the important work being done to help."

Our mission

Balmonds mission is to help people living with extremely sensitive or reactive skin to feel more comfortable in their skin, not just by offering them safe, effective, natural emollients that are good rather than unpleasant to use, but also by representing all kinds of people with all kinds of skin in our marketing materials and social media.

We often hear from customers how vital it is to feel represented and heard, and we know that there’s a huge positive effect on self-confidence when that happens. Given the significant connection between emotional well-being and skin, that’s a task we take very seriously indeed.

Supporting the community

In this interview, presenter Louise Minchin is joined by Balmonds PR manager, Lucy Gulland, and Balmonds ambassador and award-winning blogger Ruth Holroyd, to look at how having very sensitive skin can be devastating to one’s mental health, and what Balmonds is doing to support the community.

“Having sensitive skin can really affect every aspect of your life… Finding natural products like Balmonds to help me maintain that, rather than these big tubs of lardy, greasy stuff, it's like a bit of self care, something nice on my skin, that is promoting healing as well as moisturising and soothing."
