The care of sensitive, irritated skin prone to redness, for example in rosacea, is a particular challenge for cosmetic skin care: The products must be very nourishing and soothing without stressing the skin. They must also not contain too much oil, which promotes the heat buildup that can result from the inflammatory processes.
HighDroxy CALM BALM offers care precisely tailored to the needs of sensitive skin. Thanks to state-of-the-art active ingredient technology, this light, unscented and particularly low-irritation balm comprehensively soothes the skin. It inhibits inflammatory processes, reduces redness and impurities and promotes the regeneration of the skin's own lipid film. This makes CALM BALM ideal for the daily care of sensitive and stressed skin and for rosacea.

I notice a slight odor when using the CALM BALM - is this normal?
The odor you may notice is the incense contained in the product. Since our products are unscented, it happens that you notice the smell of individual ingredients. Frankincense has an anti-inflammatory and skin smoothing effect and has a very positive effect on irritated and reddened skin.
I have rosacea - is CLAM BALM the right product?
The CALM BALM has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and is also non-occlusive. For this reason, it is very suitable for skin affected by rosacea. If you have rather oily rosacea skin, the CALM BALM is sufficient, if you have rather dry rosacea skin, you can combine the balm during the day e.g. with DAY LIGHT.
Is the CALM BALM also suitable for acne?
Due to its skin-soothing and anti-inflammatory active ingredients, the light, non-greasy CALM BALM is very suitable for acne skin. It strengthens the skin barrier of very sensitive acne skin and has a supporting effect against impurities.
"The new CALM BALM is our care for sensitive and stressed skin. The formulation uses real active ingredient high technology to obtain highly pure extracts and molecules from plants. Who would have thought that Swiss pine, cactus, orange and water lily have something in common - namely their skin-soothing properties?
By the way, the low-fat, creamy-light texture is also extremely popular with men, because it leaves no greasy shine and absorbs quickly - ideal after shaving. The subtle incense smell of the balm, on the other hand, goes down well with everyone."

Various studies show that this extract of Swiss stone pine inhibits the function of TRPV1 - a receptor that is overactivated in sensitive skin. This results in an immediate anti-inflammatory effect.
Clinical studies also show the visible reduction of local redness and age spots on the face, resulting in a noticeable increase in overall skin color homogeneity.
The active ingredient obtained by enzymatic extraction from Mexican cactus soothes the skin and increases its moisture content by up to 20%.
The additionally contained flavonoids and polysaccharides effectively protect the skin from external stress factors, among other things because they block stress markers in the nerve cells of the skin. The skin is soothed acutely and sustainably, redness and itching are reduced.
The flavonoid "Naringenin Calchone", isolated from orange peel in a complex process, has been shown to inhibit inflammatory processes in the skin by reducing the release of the stress peptide LL-37.
As a result, redness fades and the sensation of irritation subsides.
A highly concentrated mix of water lily extract and proline reduces inflammatory stress while inhibiting stress-induced hyperpigmentation of the skin.
In addition, this active ingredient strengthens the skin barrier and thus improves the skin's own protection against external irritants.
Did you know that the CALM BALM is also excellent as aftersun care? The light cream cools the skin when applied, soothes inflammation and redness - perfect for sun-stressed skin.
Sensitive skin does not like rubbing movements - take this into account when applying the balm. Instead of rubbing the cream on your face, first distribute it carefully in the palms of your hands and then gently pat the balm into your face with the flat of your hands.
