We’ve always known Skin Salvation was good for people whose skin was sensitive to irritating ingredients - fragrances, preservatives, sulphates - that get added to so many conventional skincare products.
That’s why it was invented in the first place, specifically as a moisturiser that wouldn't aggravate sore, itchy or eczema-prone skin. We used naturally nourishing ingredients that wouldn’t make sensitive skin flare up, and left out the synthetic additives that can often cause problems.
So, while we’ve always said Skin Salvation is super gentle for sensitive skin, we wanted to make it official! Now, new customers around the world can be sure our claims have solid scientific evidence behind them.
How was Skin Salvation dermatologically tested?
By a specialist laboratory in a randomised, blind control trial.
The lab selected two groups of people - one who had sensitive skin and one who had eczema-prone or atopic skin - and applied the balm to their skin at intervals, with a total of four applications over five days. The same two groups also had applications of sterile water (a neutral substance) and sodium lauryl sulphate (a known irritant) to compare against how their skin reacted to our Skin Salvation.
Experts checked their skin every day for signs of inflammation, dryness and irritation, carefully noting any effects they found. At the end of the trial, they took the results to expert dermatologists to analyse.
And what were the results?
You guessed it, Skin Salvation did amazingly well! In fact, it performed better than the neutral control substance - sterile water! This meant the lab’s dermatologists were happy to officially state they could approve the balm for use on both sensitive and atopic (eczema-prone) skin.
As a result, we can proudly say Skin Salvation is ‘Dermatologically Tested as Suitable for Sensitive and Atopic Skin’, and ‘Dermatologist Approved’.
We think that’s definitely something to shout about. But we also know everyone’s skin is different, so we always recommend to do a patch test if you’re trying Skin Salvation or any of our products for the first time.
