In Ireland, our Celtic skin can be sensitive or sensitized for many reasons. The changeable and unpredictable weather, environmental aggressors and harsh cosmetic products are some sensitive skin triggers that can aggravate a sensitive skin type.
Ultraceuticals expert team recognised the need for a duo of calming and cooling new products to help this common skin concern in Ireland.
Ultraceuticals – Ultra Calming Cleanser €45.00 /£39.50
Michelle Macken, Ultraceuticals National Education Trainer said, “this vegan friendly formula was specifically designed and dermatologically approved as suitable for sensitive skin. I personally love how cooling, soothing and hydrating this cleanser leaves your skin feeling. This can be applied onto dry or damp skin and it is suitable to be used around the eyes.”
The new Ultra Calming Cleanser gently removes excess grime and makeup and effectively cleans pores while preserving the skin’s vital moisture without stripping away essential oils, for the perfect first step in a skin care routine.
Featuring super gentle Sodium Lauroyl Oat Amino Acids, it softly lifts away excess oils and makeup, helping to moisturise and soothe the skin leaving an overall smoother complexion.
The hypoallergenic formula is vegan friendly, designed to cleanse and hydrate irritable skin. Suitable for all skin types – especially sensitive skin – the calming cleanser is the ideal first step of any skin care routine, which is elevated when combined with the entire calming range.

The Ultra Calming Moisturiser counteracts the 4 core characteristics of sensitive skin by calming hypersensitivity and reducing visible redness with a calming peptide, reinforcing the skins natural protective barrier with a complex of ingredients to hydrate and nourish and balancing the skins microbiome with a prebiotic ingredient.

Michelle mentioned, “My top tip for sensitive skin types is to recognise your triggers. Sensitive or sensitized skin can be triggered by other lifestyle factors such as – spicy foods, alcohol, strong surfactants and detergents as well as climate stressors such as wind, sun and pollution stress. A top tip would be to journal and monitor when your skin is triggered and try to adjust your daily lifestyle practices to help maintain a healthy skin barrier.”
