Sothys has developed a line containing thermal water from the town of Spa in Belgium
According to the 2013 International Journal of Cosmetic Science, 60% of women suffer from sensitive skin. To address this need, Sothys has developed a line containing thermal water from the town of Spa in Belgium. The gentle formulation is claimed to reduce skin sensitivity, helping block epidermal receptors responsible for the sensations of pain, irritation and itching on the skin's surface. The active water has a low mineral content, and a pH close to that of the skin.
Products in the line include Micellar Cleansing Water (£23), a 2-in-1 cleanser to cleanse the face and eyes gently in one step; Soothing Velvet Cream (£38), for dry and sensitive skin prone to dryness; Soothing Melting Fluid (£38), a light, fresh fluid suitable for sensitive, combination skin; Soothing SOS Serum (£35.50), a fluid texture to quickly neutralise sensations of discomfort; and Nutri-soothing Mask (£32.50), emergency care which maintains the balance of sensitive skin.
