Harnessing the power of nature to soothe sensitive skin.

If your skin is dry or itchy, using products that contain synthetic ingredients can make the problem worse. That’s why DermaVeen has harnessed the nourishing and soothing properties of a natural ingredient known as colloidal oatmeal to cleanse and hydrate skin and hair, and reduce itching.

Derived from oat grains, colloidal oatmeal has been used as a topical skincare ingredient for 2,000 years. Rich in polysaccharides, lipids, proteins, flavonoids, minerals and vitamins, it is said to soothe dry, scaly skin and relieve inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema.

The DermaVeen range ($16.80- $33.80) includes several products – all containing colloidal oatmeal – to cleanse and moisturise your skin, hair and scalp gently, and offer natural relief for sensitive skin.

The Soap Free Wash pH5.5 and Shower and Bath Oil are perfect for soap-free cleansing, while the Moisturising Lotion and Moisturising Cream keep your skin soft and moist. For your hair and scalp, try the soapfree Oatmeal Shampoo and Oatmeal Conditioner, which promise to keep your scalp nourished and hair moisturised. All DermaVeen products are paraben- and fragrance-free.

These women took part in a two-week trial, and loved the way DermaVeen made their skin and hair feel. But don’t just take our word for it – see what they have to say.
