Who is it suitable for?

Q. What’s the difference between sensitive and sensitised skin?

Sensitive skin is genetically less robust than other skin types. It requires gentle handling even when it is healthy. Sensitive skin is a skin type. The Graces Soothing Duo is a fantastic choice for genetically sensitive skin.


Sensitised skin has become reactive because of a compromised skin barrier.  In other words, sensitised skin is a skin state, not a skin type.


People with genetically normal, oily or dry skin types can end up with sensitised skin. How? Through products or treatments that damage the skin barrier – i.e. microdermabrasion, chemical peels, beaded exfoliants and any products containing AHA or DHA.  Sometimes there are internal causes such as nutritional deficiencies or food intolerances.


We created The Graces Soothing Duo as a first-aid response for sensitised skin. It works to repair and rebuild the skin barrier. This is the foundation for clear, supple, beautiful skin. 

The Graces Skin Soothing Routine:

Sensitised skin needs pure products and a very simple skincare routine.

We have created a hydrating and healing routine using The Graces Soothing Duo.

Features: The Graces Soothing Serum and The Graces Soothing Oil.

The Graces Soothing Oil | Featured Plants

Organic Jojoba is a liquid wax that moisturises the skin without blocking the pores. It strengthens and protects the skin barrier. Jojoba is almost identical in structure to the oil the skin naturally produces. As a result, it absorbs quickly and easily while protecting the skin.

Organic Avocado Oil contains a rich feast of nutrients for skin. These include vitamins A, B1, B2, D and E, amino acids and essential fatty acids. It is an ideal oil to treat psoriasis, rosacea and eczema and other sensitive skin conditions.

Raspberry Seed Oil soothes inflamed skin. It is rich in linoleic acid. This is one of the most important EFAs for skin health. A good balance of fatty acids helps repair barrier function in sensitised skins.

Passionfruit Seed Oil contains high levels of vitamins and anti-oxidants. These protect skin from toxins in the environment. High levels of vitamin A reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Light and non-greasy, it moisturises skin without clogging it.

Vitamin E prevents the plant oils in the facial oil from going off. It is anti-aging, blocking free radicals. Rich in EFAs, it nourishes reactive and irritated skin.

Grapefruit Seed Extract supports the skin to repair and rebuild itself.  It is rich in anti-oxidants (including vitamins A, C and E) that protect the skin. It contains important phytonutrients that promote cellular health.

Organic Lavender Essential Oil is calming and cooling. It can reduce itchiness and soothe skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. It has a gentle cleansing action and reduces the appearance of fine lines and scars.

Organic Roman Chamomile Essential Oil is rich in azulene, a plant-active that is very soothing and anti-inflammatory. It helps in calming inflamed skin. 

Aja from Wild and Whimsy had struggled with peri-oral dermatitis several times before she came to Jenny Barrow (Holistic Skin Coach) for help. This sensitised skin condition responded well to treatment in her early 20’s.  But after it returned during the pregnancy of her second child, the red inflammation around her mouth and chin persisted for years.  


Jenny introduced Aja to The Graces Soothing Duo and routine. She also supported her through the nutritional changes that are needed to repair a compromised skin barrier. Aja’s skin improved slowly, but steadily. As her skin barrier strengthened, skin irritation calmed. Over a six-month period, her skin became clearer, smoother and more supple. 


“Thank you so much for the opportunity to experience this skin healing journey. It was truly amazing. My skin became clearer, smoother and there was less redness. The inflammation around my mouth and nose reduced significantly. I have also noticed a big difference in the hydration of my skin.  These changes have had a positive impact on my confidence and wellbeing.” ~ Aja
