SOS Soothing Complex

NZD $46.00


Reduce inflammation, fortify your protective barrier and strengthen surface blood vessels with this calming Manuka honey gel.

Referred to as “nature’s first aid”, Canadian Willowherb, a natural steroid and powerful Probiotics replenish your skin’s protective flora, and New Zealand Manuka assists in wound healing, reducing the risk of bacterial infection, soothing and hydrating stressed-out skin.

Daily Ritual: Apply 3-5 drops in the evening over your face, neck, and décolleté before moisturising or anywhere it is required.

Skin Concerns: Impaired barrier, sensitivity, rosacea, eczema, blemishes, acne inflammation, razor burn, insect bites, scratches, cuts and minor wounds.

NZ Manuka & Calendula 30mL (1.0 fl oz).


When your skin is healthy, the barrier function is intact, and the acid mantle is naturally balanced. However, when your skin is impaired, any number of conditions can occur:

Immunogenic Inflammation: When a rogue substance enters the skin, such as artificial fragrance or pollen, the immune system is put on high alert.
Neurogenic Inflammation: When more neurochemicals are released into the dermis than usual, the nervous system becomes overstimulated, resulting in stinging and inflammation.
Unbalanced Acid Mantle: The delicate microflora that makes up the acid mantle is knocked off balance; consequently, your skin is less able to repair itself, leading to compromised skin, premature ageing and breakouts.

Your skins natural balance is challenged daily by pollution, smog, sunlight, hormones, and stress, which stimulates immune triggers in your skin. If they become overstimulated, the equilibrium of the skin is disrupted. Over time, healthy cells are damaged, collagen and elastin fibres become distorted and break down.

SOS has been intelligently formulated with medical-grade Manuka honey and Canadian Willowherb, a natural steroid that aids wound healing and reduces bacterial infection. The probiotics activate the immune repair process, rebuilding the acid mantle by balancing the healthy bacteria on your skin. Synergistically blended with Marshmallow Root extract, studies have determined that it possesses excellent antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory effects, helping to relieve skin irritation caused by furunculosis, eczema, and dermatitis. The low pH of SOS provides the ideal, sterile environment for minor wound healing.

With regular application, the damaging effects of both immunogenic and neurogenic inflammation are reduced, and your skin’s protective barrier is maintained, making it the perfect addition to your first aid kit.

Skin Health Benefits

  • its low pH creates the ideal, sterile environment for minor wound healing
  • the powerful skin soothers treat inflammation, improving structural integrity
  • contains a non-steroidal ingredient that is both an anti-irritant and antibacterial
  • rejuvenates your skin and accelerates wound healing in acne inflammation, scars, and burns
  • decreases facial redness and post-treatment irritation- stabilising superficial capillary systems


Probiotic Complex: Cultivating a balanced microbiome keeps the good bacteria at healthy levels. This fine-tuned balance boosts your skin’s natural immunity, enhances the repair of the acid mantle, balances pH levels, and controls oil production, promoting clearer, healthier skin.
Manuka Honey: Scientifically proven to accelerate skin healing, Manuka honey is a potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial agent with impressive research into its efficacy against the bacteria that cause acne.
Canadian Willowherb: A non-steroidal antibacterial that rebalances your skin’s immune response. Addressing both immunogenic and neurogenic inflammation calms redness and irritation – taking the fire out of the itch.
Calendula: This potent skin healer contains 60% Conjugated Linoleic Acid – an interesting compound with fantastic anti-inflammatory properties – and high carotenoid levels, the precursors to vitamin A that eliminates free radicals.
Kawa Kawa: An anti-inflammatory extract containing Myrsiticin and Diayangambin, both incredibly wound-healing, is traditionally used to calm flare-ups associated with eczema and other dry-skin conditions. Research has found it decreases the inflammatory markers of Nitric Oxide and promotes skin repair in areas of itchy, scaly skin.

    This product is a life saver! I recently had IPL which only made my Rosacea worse and really dried out my face in the T zone and this SOS product really helped! It calmed the redness and pain and inflammation! I also added fortify on top for moisture to help with the over drying that the IPL caused! Grateful for these products!

    This is my most favourite skin shot. It soothes my skin so well that I like to use it as an aftershave. I get all the soothing benefits without that painful burning sensation which some aftershaves make you feel.

    • Samantha Miller

      Sos has so many unique benefits and we love that you use it for this purpose, the healing honey and manuka make this a win-win for your skin health, especially when it has been irritated after shaving.

    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.
