I developed this product recently for a lovely lady in her late 70's with very sensitive skin. When I say sensitive, I mean very very sensitive.
She cannot wear any make-up, and her face is frequently 'dotted' with dry patches that are flakey, itchy, irritated, and red.
'it comes out of nowhere. I can't pinpoint what causes it. Anything can kick it off – a change in weather, food? (I'm never sure), exposure to sun, you name it.Finding anything she would be able to tolerate and use was – to put it mildly – a bit of a challenge.
I've tried every product for sensitive skin on the market – nothing works for me. I use plain water to wash my face and – sometimes – plain oil for moisturizer. And the oil sometimes irritates me too, but plain water is what irritates my skin the least, but my skin feels so dry.'
One Thing at a TimeAfter our initial briefing, I decided to approach this 'one ingredient at a time' and started by giving her some pure aloe vera in a small spray bottle. She was instructed to lightly mist the aloe vera over her face after washing, then let the skin air dry.
After a few days she reported back with a thumbs up – no adverse reactions.
Another ingredient was added, and we proceeded from there until her Liquid Lotion was ready.
Less is MoreWhen making a product for skin this sensitive, less really is more. This formula ended up with a fairly short list of ingredients, but included effective 'goodies' like panthenol, glycerine-based herbal extracts, and hydrosol – all working in synergy to help moisturize and protect.
The best part? Her satisfaction! I'm pretty sure I was just as thrilled as she was at discovering how well this worked for her.
Her second order is being filled as we speak.
