I additionally know the way irritating it’s to take a position your hopes and hard-earned money in a product marketed for ‘delicate pores and skin’ solely to get a foul response to it.
In my life earlier than Pai, I wasted lots of of kilos on product after product that presupposed to be light on the pores and skin however, in actuality, ravaged mine.
These merchandise over-promised and under-delivered and left me feeling disillusioned and a bit of cheated.
Delicate pores and skin is a posh situation to handle and much too many producers overlook this. They are often hasty to wave the delicate pores and skin banner as a advertising and marketing device as a right of the suitability of the components of their merchandise. At all times learn the ingredient record!
There are a number of incredible botanical components for delicate pores and skin which have highly effective anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties. My specific favourites are the three Cs – Calendula (from the common-or-garden marigold), Comfrey and Chamomile.
However there are various, many extra and at Pai we frequently take a multi-pronged formulation strategy – utilizing a mixture of components with complementary however differing remedial properties.
As an illustration, delicate pores and skin normally means thinner pores and skin – so it’s vital to additionally use pores and skin strengthening components like Rosehip, which assist to make the pores and skin extra immune to environmental triggers and subsequent flare-ups.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Sodium Laureth Sulfate
Parfum (this time period can be utilized to cover over 200 totally different chemical components, lots of which don’t have anything to do with aroma).
