SOS Soothing Complex



Referred to as a “mini-ambulance in a bottle”, this deeply caring Manuka Honey gel cools, soothes, and hydrates; delivering a boost of calmness to diffuse skin prone to sensitivity or inflammation.

Horsetail and Canadian Willow reduce redness and strengthen surface blood vessels whilst important bioactive anti-inflammatories, Manuka and Calendula, seep into damaged, irritated skin to reduce redness and swelling; strengthening surface blood vessels and aiding the healing process.

Daily Ritual: Apply 3-5 drops in the evening over the face, neck, and décolleté prior to moisturising.

Skin Concerns: Rosacea, eczema, blemishes, acne skin, insect bites.

NZ MANUKA & 20% CALENDULA  30mL  1.0 fl oz

Over 50% of my clients report their skin as being sensitive at one time or another. This is often in combination with other conditions; for instance, it’s perfectly feasible to have a client who has both acne and sensitised skin, or dry skin that’s classified as sensitive. Through years of research and working with the skin, I have identified the following common triggers behind skin sensitivity:

Immunogenic Inflammation: When a rogue substance enters the skin, such as artificial fragrance or pollen, the immune system is instantly put on high alert.
Neurogenic Inflammation: When more neuro-active chemicals are released into the dermis than usual, the nervous system becomes overstimulated, resulting in a stinging sensation.
Unbalanced Acid Mantle: Excessive exfoliation and harsh ingredients can upset the delicate micro-flora that keeps your skin healthy; allowing toxins to penetrate the dermis and cause irritation.

These triggers – coupled with factors outside of our control such as genetics, hormones, stress, pollution, and even food – can intensify our skin’s highly reactive state, creating inflammation and compromising the health of our skin.

It was important for me to create a deeply nurturing complex that calms sensitivity and inflammation, with healing and antibacterial properties. Affectionately referred to by my clients as “nature’s first aid”, the intelligent ingredients in SOS visibly reduce the activity of inflammatory markers in skin cells; calming the heat and itching sensations associated with sensitive skin.

    This is my favorite product. I had perfect skin and I had one microneedling session last July and since then my skin has had constant breakouts, inflammation and redness. SOS I put on before bed and it soothes and make my feel skin feel calm. I’m so grateful for Samantha and her products.
