What is Dermal Sensitivity?

We often heard about sensitive skin, but it is not a disease. If you have sensitive skin, you might experience some symptoms such as redness, itching, burning, stinging and tightness when your skin come into contact with certain ingredients or irritants. Benzalkonium Chloride (BKC) and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) are commonly found in cosmetic and skincare products. BKC is commonly used as preservative to prevent the growth of microorganisms, and it is also used as an ingredient in antimicrobial soaps and skin antiseptics. NaOH is used to control the pH of cosmetics and cleanliness products. Genetic polymorphism may be the reason behind why some individuals are more sensitive to these chemicals.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Skincare Recommendations:

  1. Use soap-free cleanser, synthetic detergents with an acidic or neutral pH and lipid-free cleansing lotion.
  2. Using a moisturiser (gentle emollients) may help to reduce irritation.
