NZD $58.00


This transformative pressed serum combines the benefits of a targeted treatment with the comfort of moisture-rich butters, delivering penetrating healing and regenerative nourishment to traumatised skin.

At the heart of this soothing and calming balm is an intoxicating blend of blue tansy and barrier repairing ingredients; ceramides, marula, and squalane, leaving your skin with a soft, velvety, matte finish.

Daily Ritual: Gently massage into the skin, allowing the gorgeous essences to activate and breathe deeply.

Skin Concerns: Impaired barrier, sensitivity, dryness, mature, eczema, dry lips.

NZ Flax & Ceramides 50mL (1.7 fl oz).

This aromatic balm is quintessential holistic beauty at its best, designed to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance and serve as a gentle reminder to stop and breathe, creating a sense of beauty and wellbeing.

Clients with very compromised skin often complain that their moisturising regimen is not enough; ceramide bridges that gap – Unlike other moisturisers, it won’t immediately absorb, allowing it to support epidermal recovery and offering intense, intense moisturisation.

Your barrier function is found in the stratum corneum, a specialised layer that forms the outermost part of our skin, the epidermis – it’s important from a cosmetic viewpoint, as it functions as both a physical and chemical barrier; its role is twofold:

  1. Prevents penetration from invading allergens and bacteria.
  2. Prevents evaporation of water from your skin, referred to as trans-epidermal water loss.

It is made up of layers of flattened cells surrounded by an oily, water-repellent coating that provides a formidable barrier to the outflow of water and an impermeable membrane to the environment; this oily surrounding comprises 50% Ceramides, 25% Cholesterol, and 10% Fatty Acids. These lipids are super important for the normal barrier repair function, a vital front-line that protects you against the environment; pollution, bacterial infection, UV, and more.

This balm has been intelligently formulated with skin-identical ingredients, including ceramides, that help fill the spaces between skin cells, giving them elasticity. Hence, they play a critical role in strengthening the skin barrier by maintaining moisture balance. Nourishing fatty acids linolenic and linoleic play a key role in maintaining the hydration levels in your skin, improving skin texture and suppleness while reducing inflammation and improving barrier function.

The pale blue colour comes from Chamazulene, blended with exotic botanicals and nourishing lipids to calm and appease even the most aggravated skin.

An intensely hydrating, moisturising treatment like no other, this balm provides a real sensory experience – a welcome addition to any skincare routine that indulges the skin and soothes the senses in one luxurious, fragrant step.

Use alone, or for very dry skin conditions, mix with Bio Lipid Complex and leave overnight as a healing mask.

Skin Health Benefits

  • calms sensitivity and redness reduces itching sensations
  • deeply moisturises and nourishes, offering a protective layer
  • skin-identical ingredients improve the integrity of the barrier function
  • conditions and lubricates the skin; softening and comforting dry, impaired skin


Ceramide Blend: The key component of the cell membranes found within the top layer of your skin are ceramides, which deplete with age. This blend of skin-identical ceramides is fully compatible with your cells and has a protective role on the skin, supporting cellular rejuvenation whilst reinforcing your natural barrier function.
Pohutukawa: Your skin fully recognises this deeply conditioning botanical extract as identical to the nutritive building blocks of its own structure, greatly enhancing its ability to strengthen and repair itself.
Jojoba: Has the same molecular structure as natural wax esters found in our skin. Sebum (oil) contains 30% wax esters, which is why your skin recognises it as its own. Blending with your sebum, it is absorbed deep into the skin’s tissues, creating a thin, non-occlusive layer that reinforces your skins protective barrier.
Cupuaçu Butter: A rich, creamy butter rich in essential fatty acids and phytosterols, offering superior moisturisation, softening and smoothing your skin to enhance elasticity.
Marula Oil: Rich in essential fatty acids Omega 6 and 9, marula deeply hydrates and helps to reduce inflammation and redness. Its potent antioxidant-rich properties help to ward off premature ageing.
Blue Tansy: Harnessed for its chamazulene potency – a chemical compound that gives Tansy its valuable anti-inflammatory and skin rejuvenation benefits.

    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.

      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

    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.

    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.

    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.
