In addition to a preference for using skin care that's organic, natural, ethical and cruelty-free, one of the main reasons people visit natural product stores and online natural beauty stores when they're shopping for skin care, is because they're seeking formulas that are suitable for sensitive skin. With this in mind, alva
has developed the SENSITIVE range of skin care formulas.
SENSITIVE range is
unique luxury for sensitive skin; 8 premium skin care formulas designed for even the most sensitive skin types. Although SENSITIVE is designed for ultimate compatibility for those with sensitive skin, formulas in the SENSITIVE range are suitable for all skin types. SENSITIVE also bestows benefits on dehydrated, aging and mature skin.
All products in the SENSITIVE range are hypoallergenic, 100% natural, and free of alcohol & preservatives, and of course, there is no animal testing, and 7 of the formulas are vegan. The alva
SENSITIVE range is packaged in premium recycled and recyclable card, and with the exception of the BB Cream and the Eye & Lip Care Cream, all products are presented in recycled glass bottles.
The 4 founding principles of the SENSITIVE range are: to combine unique and effective ingredients for intensive long-lasting nourishment of the skin, intensive protection, skin firming and hydration, and a soothing and calming fragrance.Read more/less
1. Light, exceptionally well tolerated organic vegetable oils with a very high percentage of antioxidants which help to reduce oxidative stress and bolster the body’s antioxidant defence system.
2. U.S. patented beta 1,3 / 1,6 glucan helps to significantly improve skin regeneration. The immune system of the skin is strengthened and long-term dermal elasticity is optimised.
3. The optimised combination of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid has a dual effect: firstly, it facilitates skin firming and helps the skin retain moisture, and secondly, the body's first line of defence – the skin – is strengthened and protected against bacterial attack.
4. The all-natural, hypoallergenic scent was developed by renowned fragrance experts, Acorelle, whose expert knowledge of aromatherapy has helped to create a calming and stress-reducing effect. The soothing natural fragrance takes its main notes from Indian Sandalwood. So not only do these skin care formulas have great calming benefits on the skin when applied topically, they also work on an aromatherapeutic level via the limbic system, helping to induce a calm and meditative state on the user, thereby helping to make the user feel centred and stress-free.
So how do we preserve these all natural premium ingredients? The combination of Sodium Levulinate, Sodium Anisate and Glyceryl Caprylate act as preservatives. Although they are not in themselves preservatives, their combined action stabilizes the products’ contents, thereby maintaining their integrity and activity.
We think you'll agree that the new SENSITIVE range from alva is the ultimate in premium organic skin care for sensitive skin.
