When you have sensitive skin, body products that help it, can be hard to find. That is why I am pleased to say that the range from Dr V is specifically designed for those with sensitive and irritable skin in mind.
Dr. V is an Australian made and owned skincare brand, with natural and gentle formulas that are suitable for everyday use. Furthermore, these products are created for those with sensitive and eczema prone skin, containing no parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrance, and phthalates. Dr V is also a proud supporter of the Eczema Association Australasia, and all the items featured on this list are designed to be eczema friendly.
Firstly, there is the beautifully nourishing hand cream, scientifically formulated to repair and restore your hands and nails for a full pamper treatment. Made with argan and avocado oil, which are rich in vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids that help to moisturise and soften brittle nails, as well as nourish cuticles and heal dry hands. The cream also features hydrolyzed keratin, which is similar to the natural keratin protein found in hair and nails, to strengthen and smooth your nails, with the bonus of further moisturising your skin.
For wider body care and moisturising, there are the Dr V body lotions and washes, each in 750ml sizes and brimming with healing vitamins and nutrients. The lotions and washes come in three different fragrances: proactive and healing Goat’s Milk and Manuka Honey, calming Lavender Chamomile and Sage, and gentle and unscented ‘So Pure’. The milk and honey set is particularly healing. Goat’s milk is brimming with essential proteins, vitamins, amino acids, minerals and natural lactic acid to assist with regulating the PH and stimulating healthy skin renewal. This is combined with Manuka honey, which is super nourishing and moisturising, renowned for its natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities. Together, these ingredients create products that are recommended for irritated and damaged skin.
The Lavender, Chamomile and Sage scent, on the other hand, is designed to be relaxing and soothing as well as moisturising. The formula uses natural lavender oil, which is renowned for its anti-inflammatory, calming and soothing properties, and is great for treating sensitive and easily irritated skin. This fragrance also features argan and avocado oils, as well as other essential oils, for their hydrating and soothing effects.
For the most sensitive and irritable skin types, however, there is the extra gentle ‘So Pure’. The body wash is sulphate free and foaming, while the moisturiser focuses on healing and hydrating damaged skin. Like the Lavender scent, So Pure also features argan and avocado oils- argan for its superior moisturising and natural healing properties, avocado for the abundance of vitamins and antioxidants to soothe, soften and rejuvenate your skin.
Finally, there is the leg and foot cream. Like the hand cream, this foot cream features argan and avocado oil to aid in the softening and nourishing of your legs and feet. Arnica Montana, a European flowering plant that features toxins that help to relieve pain and treat skin ailments. The ingredients of this cream can smooth, soothe, and relieve pain on your legs and feet, just be sure not to apply over open wounds because of the toxins in the Arnica Montana plant.
