Clinical advice

A unique pressed serum that indulges your senses and soothes your skin in one luxurious, fragrant step.

Traditional moisturisers often fall short for those with impaired or extremely dry skin. To address this, we’ve created a formula that bridges this gap, providing intense nourishment without immediate absorption and supporting epidermal recovery while deeply hydrating.

The outermost layer of your skin, the stratum corneum, serves as a crucial barrier against allergens, bacteria, and moisture loss. Comprised of ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids, this protective shield defends against environmental aggressors and maintains optimal moisture levels.

Our Barrier Repair Balm replenishes these vital components, seamlessly integrating into your skin cells to fortify the protective barrier. Rich in nourishing fatty acids, it enhances hydration and texture while infusing calming properties with chamazulene and native botanicals. It imparts a delicate pale blue hue to soothe inflamed skin.

Whether used alone for daily nourishment or left on overnight as a restorative mask, our balm provides intensified hydration, which is particularly beneficial for addressing dry skin conditions.

PURE INTENTION – BREATHE: Immerse yourself in the exquisite fragrance that transports you into the heart of blue flower essences. This calming aroma gently reminds you to pause, breathe deeply, and re-establish connections with your emotions, fostering holistic well-being.


  • Calms and soothes the skin
  • deeply nourishes and replenishes dry skin
  • Shields sensitive skin from inflammation
  • A unique Tri-Ceramide complex restores the barrier function

How to use

At sunset, gently massage your skin, allowing the gorgeous essences to activate and breathe deeply.

Pro Tip: For a luxurious and deeply nourishing experience, apply the product as a mask at night. This way, you’ll wake up to skin that feels remarkably supple and dewy.

Key Ingredients

Ceramides: These lipid molecules are crucial for forming a protective barrier that seals in moisture and shields against environmental stressors. When compromised, ceramide levels decrease, leading to dryness, irritation, and increased sensitivity. Replenishing ceramides strengthens the skin barrier, promoting hydration, smoothness, and resilience.

Pohutukawa: Recognized for its deep conditioning properties, this botanical enhances skin strength and supports barrier repair.

Bakuchiol: A natural alternative to retinol, it aids in achieving smoother, younger-looking skin.

Squalane: This unique oil mimics the skin’s natural wax esters, readily absorbed without clogging pores, creating a breathable protective barrier.

Cupuaçu Butter: Abundant in fatty acids and phytosterols, it delivers superior moisturization and enhances skin elasticity to combat premature ageing signs.

Marula Oil: Packed with antioxidants and omega fatty acids, this oil fights free radicals and reduces skin inflammation.

Blue Tansy: Rich in chamazulene, known for its anti-inflammatory and skin-rejuvenating properties.

Kawa Kawa: Potent anti-inflammatory that calms and soothes the skin.

Comfrey Root: Traditionally known as “knit bone,” this herb stimulates cell renewal, aiding in the repair and healing of damaged skin.

    • Samantha Miller

      Aria we are so glad you like it, with its new improved formula and additional Blue tansy it is becoming a firm favourrite

  4. Laurie

    Ceramide Barrier Repair Balm by Naked Chemist is an exceptional formulation.
    Having hyper-sensitive reactive fragile skin, I have, for more than 20 years, been frustrated searching endlessly for products my skin would accept that could calm, comfort,
    provide generous long lasting hydration, and allay a tendency to flush. Happily, this Ceramide Balm ended my search.
    Additionally, as the skin reacts very badly to essential oil mixtures, upon request, Samantha has been kind enough to make this Balm without use of “essential oils”. I am very grateful and appreciative of her care and obvious dedication to her craft.
    Final Word: This Ceramide Balm is in a class of its own…matchless.

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi Laurie

      Thank you for your wonderful review. We have been really pleased that we have been able to share your journey back to skin health. We are of course happy to customise your formula especially if your skin has a special requirement which many sensitive skin types do. Yours in skin health Samantha

  5. Kassi

    This stuff makes your skin feel insanely soft even after washing it off! Samantha helped me pick out the dry skin kit and this was in there, I absolutely love all the products so far!

  7. Chelaine Soo

    Reduces skin itchiness and redness overnight for all kinds of skin allergies. In June last year, I was staying at a mountain resort where the whether was dry and temperature will drop till 20 °c at night..especially when it rains. This is the only thing i used as a moisturizer before I sleep and i always woke up with clear skin. Am routine was DNA and Fortify. That’s the only 3 items I brought during my stay there. Less is best for people with sensitive and weak skin barrier. My skin tends to have flare ups and redness when inflammation sets in. With enough sleep and this miracle balm, the redness will reduce in as fast as 12 hours.. Kudos to Naked Chemist.

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi Chelaine thankyou for the wonderful review and you are so right less is best and keeping inflammation out is at the route of all premature ageing as far as we are concerned. Samantha

  8. Kylie Chivers

    A soothing product that my skin was craving!

    • Samantha Miller

      It is meant to bridge the gap between a moisturiser and a balm, so glad it is doing the job.

  9. Antoine Scicluna

    You know the satisfaction you get from drinking a cold sweet iced tea after a long day in the Summer sun. The Ceramide Barrier Repair Balm is a refreshing drink for your facial skin. The first time I applied it, my dry and sensitive skin started feeling better immediately. I highly recommend it to people who have dry, sensitive, and/or combination skin.

    • Samantha Miller

      Thank you for this wonderful feedback on Ceramide, as we are really trying to bridge the gap between a moisturiser and a dry sensitive skin here – where a moisturiser just doesn’t always offer quite enough penetrative hydration and moisturisation, so this is great to know you are getting the type of result we are trying to achieve with this formula from a clinical perspective. Samantha

  10. Clara

    This is another product that should be winning awards.

    This product is THE product that we people with non-oil producing skins dream about. I use it as my night moisturiser or apply it really thickly as a mask. It smells divine and is incredibly calming and relaxing. It does have a blue hue and I’ve noticed it does colour the creases of my very pale neck blue, but washes off easily. I couldn’t recommend this more highly to people with my skin type.

    • Samantha Miller

      This is a new addition to the range and unique in its formula in that it contains phospholipids and ceramides. Blue is from the chamazulene and indigo so perfectly natural and exceptionally anti inflammatory. So great to hear you enjoyed it. thank you for the very honest feedback.
