This unique pressed serum is holistic beauty at its best that provides a complete sensory experience.
Indulging your senses and soothing your skin in one luxurious, fragrant step.

Clients with very compromised skin often complain that their moisturising routine is not enough; this balm bridges that gap unlike traditional moisturisers, it won’t immediately absorb, allowing it to support epidermal recovery whilst providing intense nourishment.

Your barrier function found in the stratum corneum is a specialised layer that forms the outermost part of your skin. It functions as both a physical and chemical barrier, and the role of this vital barrier function is twofold:

  1. It has a brick-and-mortar-like structure protecting your skin and preventing penetration from invading allergens and bacteria.
  2. It prevents water evaporation from your skin, referred to as trans-epidermal water loss.

This protective barrier comprises layers of flattened skin 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, which are crucial for normal barrier function that vital front line that protects you against the environment, pollution, bacterial infection, UV, and more.

Ceramide balm has been intelligently formulated with natural ingredients in your skin that deplete with age and trauma, including Ceramides, which integrate into the skin cells perfectly and the spaces between them, playing a critical role in strengthening your protective barrier by maintaining moisture balance. The nourishing Fatty acids, including Linolenic and Linoleic, help maintain hydration levels improving the texture and suppleness of your skin. The gorgeous pale blue hue comes from Chamazulene and native Botanicals, which calm and soothe inflamed skin.

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

The gorgeous fragrance takes you on a journey into the heart of blue flower essences. Their calmative, cooling action also eases systemic issues that are often the deep-rooted cause of problematic skin, such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, and emotional heat – serving as a gentle reminder to stop and breathe and connect with our emotions.

Skin Health Benefits

  • calms inflammation and redness, reducing itching sensations
  • skin-identical ingredients improve the integrity of the barrier function
  • conditions and lubricates your skin; softening and comforting dry, impaired skin
  • plays a crucial role in maintaining hydration levels, thus improving the texture and suppleness of your skin.


Ceramides: These are critical components of the cell membranes found within the top layer of your skin that deplete with age. This pressed serum contains skin-identical Ceramides that are fully compatible with your skin cells and have a protective role.
Pohutukawa: Your skin fully recognises this deeply conditioning Botanical extract as identical to the nutritive building blocks of its structure, greatly enhancing your skin’s ability to strengthen and repair itself.
Squalane: This clever oil has a molecular structure similar to the natural wax esters in your skin. Sebum (oil) contains 30% wax esters, so your skin recognises it as its own. Blending with your skin’s sebum, it is absorbed deep into the tissues, creating a thin, non-occlusive layer that reinforces the barrier function.
Cupuaçu Butter: A creamy butter rich in Fatty acids and Phytosterols that offer superior moisturisation, softening and smoothing your skin to enhance elasticity.
Marula Oil: Rich in Fatty acids Omega 6 and 9, Marula oil deeply hydrates and helps reduce inflammation and redness, and its potent Antioxidants-rich properties help ward off premature ageing.
Blue Tansy: Harnessed for its Chamazulene potency, the chemical compound gives Tansy its valuable anti-inflammatory and skin rejuvenation benefits.

    • 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

  5. 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

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

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.
