When you take skincare as seriously as we do, we imagine that you are always searching for the next generation of game-changing skincare products that can restore it to a trouble-free, healthy state. It sounds so simple, but giving the skin what it wants is a complex problem that demands a lot of science in its creation and especially so when you need it to provide instant relief and keep your skin moist and hydrated most of the day (or night).
Skin Repair Lotion
Effective healing power
SkinLikes Skin Repair, is the result of our research at two Scottish Universities. West of Scotland where we developed an organic, vegan emollient using plant-based (land and sea) food-grade ingredients and Aberdeen where we confirmed the efficacy of an organic formula able to eradicate bacteria taken from hospital-acquired infections.
It is a highly effective skin lotion that giving the skin what it wants, soothing and repairing itchy and dry skin, especially on shins and elbows. It’s perfect for damaged, irritated and hard skin on hands and feet and our customers tell us that they use it for all sorts of skin conditions such as, wound-healing, skin ulcers and lesions. Apart from anything it’s a great moisturiser.
What makes it so special: When the skins natural barrier that is damaged by exposure to cold weather, water, soaps and other chemicals it causes breakdown in barrier function that results in moisture loss. This opens the door to penetration of irritants, which can cause dryness, redness, scaling, itching and irritation. So, if you have to work in conditions that cause these problems, or if your skin is aged, then its best to feed and care for it with clean, organic ingredients that will replenish and repair and it absorbs almost immediately, so you never feel sticky.
What do we use and why: First, we start with soft Scottish water from our lochs and streams, which is then further purified to remove any microscopic traces of contaminants. Then we add Passion Seed and Grapeseed oil that are both cold-pressed and organic. Glycine (a natural amino acid) helps maintain the skin’s hydration, texture, resilience, and a blend of plant-based therapeutic essential oils that we tested at Aberdeen University, which effectively and hygienically kill the bad bacteria on the skin such as those that prevent wounds from healing, which can be especially beneficial to calm itching that comes sometimes with varicose veins. And of course, if you are diabetic and have to look after your feet, then this may be the best product to keep them healthy.
DO NOT: apply near eyes, or on mucus membranes. Take great care if using near the face. Not suitable for children. Apply generally two to three times daily.
Always: patch test first if in any doubt about allergies. Apply a little to the crease on the inside of an elbow and leave six hours.
