Alleviating sensitive skin conditions
Two dermatological products that can help moisturise dry skin.
Peeling skin and skin flare-ups are symptoms of sensitive skin conditions that some have to face every day. With the new norm of mask-wearing, skin irritation cases have reached a new high.
Mitch Loo, managing director of Capsule Pharma, a pharmaceutical, medical device, cosmetics and healthcare product distributor in Singapore, shared, “We have noticed that more people, especially the elderly and children, have experienced increased instances of skin irritation and abrasion from a whole day of mask-wearing. Their first instinct is to scour for products to remedy their skin, and yet typical retail products these days not only have exorbitant price tags but are also loaded with too many ingredients – some of which could even be harmful to the skin in the long run.”
The company offers its BELVEA range of dermatological products which can help Singaporeans alleviate and ease symptoms of sensitive skin:
- BELVEA Moisturizing Skin Cream Formula – it is suitable for mild to moderately dry skin conditions and contains allantoin and aloe barbadensis leaf extract which smoothens the skin and aids in the skin’s healing process. According to Capsule Pharma, this formulation is also an ideal adjunctive moisturiser for patients on steroid cream therapies, as it can be applied in between steroid cream applications. It is also free of parabens, and contains only six active ingredients that work together to moisturise skin. For better results, it is best applied after shower whilst the skin is still moist, allowing the humectant effect of the cream to prevent moisture loss and further hydrate skin.
- BELVEA Gentle Skin Wash Formula – this soap-free cleanser is free from Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS), a commonly used surfactant in many cleansers that may cause skin irritation for those with sensitive skin. Unlike other soap-free cleansers, this product lathers well, and at the same time, effectively moisturises the skin. This versatile product can be used as a facial wash, body wash and shampoo.
BELVEA Moisturizing Skin Cream Formula (S$20) and BELVEA Gentle Skin Wash Formula (S$20) are available for purchase on the e-commerce platforms Shopee, Qoo10 and selected clinics in Singapore.
