We made this cream with the sensitive types in mind. We know how frustrating it can be for those with fussy skin that react to just about anything and everything. This lightweight cream is made using the moisturizing base of our Full Cream Moisturizer which is full of oils that are high in the types of fatty acids that healthy skin needs and irritated skin loves.
Then we added in as much MSM as we could possibly fit in and removed the Milk Protein. Just mention MSM to a Naturopath and watch them go nuts. This moisturizer is also fully loaded with a ton of other stand-up skin healing ingredients to soothe troubled skin. Suitable for everyone and all skin types, including babies. Rub it on whenever you like, including the face. We treat all skin equally, with love.
What ingredients do you avoid when making a moisturizer?
There's lots of things you won't find in this cream (or any of our other products) because they were all formulated for family members and close friends. This includes Paraffin and Mineral Oil which derive from petroleum, but are commonly found in commercial moisturizers like Sorbolene. We don’t think putting the stuff that goes into our cars on our skin is the healthiest thing we can do.
We also don’t use any synthetic preservatives such as Parabens and Phenoxyethanol, although they're pretty common too, including with a few brands that claim to be natural (you know who you are!). We avoid a lot of other things too, way too many to list here. We also don't use any useless, trendy ingredients like stem cells from Swiss apples or super-power jellyfish DNA, just natural, effective ingredients for healthy skin.
Can I use this moisturizer when my skin flares up? Or do you recommend something else?
This moisturizer can be used any time, when your skin is behaving and also when it’s having a breakdown. When times are tough, we recommend using this in conjunction with our Skin Calming Cream to soothe and moisturize the skin. Apply the Skin Calming Cream first to the affect areas and allow it to soak in for 2 minutes. Then apply the Soothing MSM Moisturizer over top and anywhere else you like.
