Every day, external stimuli, such as climate and pollution, cause excessive reactions in sensitive skin. They are subjected to stinging sensations, redness, burning and tightness. Bio-inspired by the red sage, a plant used in traditional Chinese medicine and known for its high capacity to resist very low temperatures, SILAB developed a natural active ingredient able to treat skin discomfort of sensitive skin by targeting for the first time the three biological components of skin sensitivity: neuronal hyper-reactivity, alteration of the barrier function and chronic inflammation.
