Key Actives


Blackcurrant Seed Oil is particularly high in gamma linolenic essential fatty acid, particularly Omega 6 and Omega 3. Called “essential” because our body cannot reproduce them, they form part of the lipid layer and are vital for healthy skin. They help prevent skin dryness, restore optimal moisture balance and maintain the skin’s barrier function.

Evening Primrose Oil

Evening Primrose oil is rich in Gamma Linolenic essential fatty acid, particularly Omega 6. Called “essential” because our body cannot reproduce them, they form part of the lipid layer and are vital for healthy skin. They help prevent skin dryness, restore optimal moisture balance and maintain the skin’s barrier function.

Bergamot Essential Oil

Bergamot is an essence taken from the peel of a Mediterranean citrus fruit. Its delightful fresh fragrance has an uplifting and calming effect.

Cassia Alata Leaf Extract

From a Tropical habitat, this extract has developed a powerful defence mechanism. This compound helps to protect mitochondrial DNA from degradation. It supports the cell’s natural repair system by combating the harmful effects of the sun.

Marine Peptide

From the seaweed Enteromorpha compressa. This material works with the skin’s neuromediators, helping to block the message telling the skin cells to over-react to stress. It has a soothing action and improves the comfort of thin, sensitive and dry skin. It helps to reduce skin tightening, stinging and reddening. 


This special oil has a gentle, floral aroma that is extremely mood enhancing. It is used in skincare when treating sensitive skin and can also lift the spirits. Only a little of this essence is required, as its perfume is intense. 

Shea Butter

This is fat extracted from the kernels of the African tree. Aids absorption of active ingredients and leaves a protective film on the skin. 

Vegan Friendly


This soothing Recovery Balm will provide efficient and effective relief to sensitised or stressed skin in need of comforting. With relaxing scents of Soft Rose and Bergamot Essential Oils to calm the senses and bursting with peptides to reduce redness and relieve irritations. Evening Primrose and Blackcurrant Seed oils ensure the natural barrier and lipid content is improved to leave skin feeling balanced and thoroughly hydrated.

Perfect for all skin types.


Top Tip: “A hug in a tube or a winter saviour” suitable for all skins particularly those in need of extra comfort.

This product sits on my bedside table (next to my hand cream) and it’s the last thing I put on my face before I go to sleep! I love to run outside in all elements, but the weather can play havoc on your skin, so I use this product to soothe, moisturise and nourish my skin ready for a new day.

I received this moisturizer in a subscription box and love it! It's unusual for my skin not to react to a new product ad it is very sensitive but my skin loves this product. It is soothing and comforting to irritated skin. I am prone to psoriasis and this does not aggravate it. The scent is truly lovely and does not irritate my skin or my multiple chemical sensitivities. Usually I have to skip the scented products so this feels especially indulgent. I do find that I need to use a good hydrating serum underneath this moisturizer. It locks in all the hydrating goodness but isn't overly hydrating when used alone. If not using a hyaluronic acid serum prior to application, at least make sure your skin is still damp when applying. This cream has the weight of a true balm but is not greasy in the least. It provides a soothing, occlusive, and protective layer.

This cream has been nothing short of miraculous in terms of transforming my skin; being a lifelong eczema person I'm always nervous about what I use on my face and was a devoted user of a moisturiser made by another leading skincare brand. I started using this cream and haven't looked back, it's a brilliant product.

I received this in a beauty box subscription today. As it turns out, I ended up sunburned today, and decided to give this balm a try. Omg, it is literally one of the most soothing, calming products that I've ever used on my very sensitive skin (and there have been too many to count)! Kudos on creating such an amazing product!!!

This is an amazing balm it has done wonders for the condition of my skin, I now don’t have any dry eczema patches on my face thanks to this little miracle balm. My skin is very dry but I find lots of products just block my pores but this balm is perfect, it smells great but is not over powering and I only need to use a small amount, I mostly use in the evenings so I wake up with my skin feeling and looking refreshed and not at all dry or patchy and it seems to really help even my skin tone.

Just wanted to let you know how successful I've found your products to be. I received the Recovery Balm in a beauty box from an online retailer around a year ago, and have consistently used this, and many of your other products since then. I have lupus (SLE), which at times has given me severe inflammation of the skin on my face, particularly nose and chin. With consistent use of your products, I no longer have to take oral antibiotics (prescribed for anti inflammatory properties), and my skin is healthier looking than it's been in years. No idea what your secret is, but thank you! In all seriousness, there might be a possible link for your company with dermatology and /or rheumatology practice, be it private or NHS. As a clinician myself, it makes such a welcome change to find a simple product that makes a difference without any risk.

I love this one. It is very soothing. I tend to put it on after I have washed and dried my hair because my face is then quite red and hot and feels a little dry. I also love the scent of the essential oils.
