Sensitive skin can be both painful and noticeable. It is caused by skin disorders or allergic skin reactions such as eczema, rosacea, or allergic contact dermatitis. Overly dry or injured skin that can no longer protect nerve endings, leading to skin reactions.
Too often, the microbiome are damaged by modern lifestyles, pollution and overuse of antibacterial products and detergents. This can lead to dry, irritated and stressed sensitive skin.
The microbiome is the name for all good bacteria and microorganisms that live in harmony on and in your body. They are an extension of our selves; they play a protective role and are an integral part of the barrier function of our skin.
Gallinée is the first brand to take care of sensitive skin and its bacterial ecosystem, the microbiome. Their formulations have high concentrations of active ingredients that respect skin’s sensitivity. Their products are SLS and soap free and have same pH as the skin.
Here are some of the products I tried from Gallinée:

This is a gentle cleanser that cleanses, softens and brightens to give clear complexion. This cleanser is perfect for all skin types including sensitive skin. This has 98% natural origin ingredients and helps support skin’s good bacteria for a clearer complexion.
