Important Stats + Conditions When You Have Reactive or Sensitive Skin


We’ve decided to take stock on some important figures for us with reactive skin. 

What are the most common skin conditions after acne?
Atopic Dermatitis 

  • One in 10 people will develop atopic dermatitis during their lifetime.
  • It affects up to 25% of children and 2 to 3% of adults.
  • In 2013, the total medical cost of treating atopic dermatitis was $314 million, for an average of $101.42 per treated patient. [Source]
  • Rosacea is a common skin disease that affects 16 million Americans and I am one of them.
  • In 2013, the total medical cost of treating rosacea was $165 million, for an average of $102.26 per treated patient. [Source]
Fungal + Bacterial Nail infections + Athlete's foot
  • 14% of the U.S. of the population are affected with toenail dermatophytes, Europe[23%] and Asia[20%]
  • 50% of nail disease is characterised as fungal infection, remedies could take one year or more to maintain. [Source]
Is sensitive skin really that prevalent?
  • In a 2001 U.K. study, 51.4% women self identify with sensitive skin and 38.2% of men self identify with sensitive skin.
  • Conclusion: The study indicates that sensitive facial skin is a common problem for women and men in the U.K. and points to the need for the development of personal products designed for this skin phenotype.
Why do we produce boosters for skin flare ups?
Since I have your reactive skin, I know all too well how common flare ups can be. Even if we're diligent, a flare up can be caused by uncontrollables such as:
  • Environmental + hormonal stressors
  • What we’ve consumed + applied to our skin
  • Even our level of stress + immunity

This is why Joe and I research + develop boosters, designed to rescue + repair during your flare ups.

Our current boosters: Wild Vine Nail Oil + Terra Mask

  • Our Wild Vine Nail blend is a 3 oil formulation used to promote healthy nails and cuticles. Designed to be used long term to maintain nail health. I have personally been using it for the past 5 years.
  • Today, 30% of women are using facial masks, myself included. I use clay masks to rescue my skin from buildup and flares from contact irritation. My skin is fickle so we designed a dry mask to be mixed with whatever base works best for you. I use it as a cleanser when mixed with our Complexion Baume base, and as a full dry mask when mixed with water. I have been using this formulation for 2 years.
