Addressing Skin Health Issues Like Eczema and Rosacea, Clean and Clinical Brand Skinfix Launches at Sephora

Spread the love

Skincare tends to fall into one of two oft sought-after categories: clean or clinical. But the newest brand to hit Sephora.ca’s virtual shelves a few weeks ago happens to fall into both. Canadian skincare company Skinfix promises to deliver “an unprecedented proposition—clean products, formula transparency, clinical efficacy and broad reaching, unbiased dermatologist endorsements.” With a range of creams, cleansers, balms, scrubs and treatments—all cruelty-free and free of fragrance, parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates, silicones, propylene glycol and other frowned-upon additives and preservatives—Skinfix’s products are all aimed at targeting specific dermatological issues like eczema and rosacea, plus a concentrated tattoo aftercare balm for fans of body ink.

“We are proof that clean can be legitimately clinical,” Skinfix founder Amy Risley said in a press release. Skinfix is also taking an upfront approach to labeling, listing active concentration percentages front and centre where shoppers can see them, following in the footsteps of brands like The Ordinary who pioneered this kind of ingredient transparency. With high concentrations by industry standards—their Resurface+ Glycolic Renewing Scrub, formulated to combat those unsightly upper arm bumps known as keratosis pilaris, packs a 7% concentration of glycolic acid and a 6% concentration of lactic acid—and attainable prices (by Sephora standards), this line packs a serious punch.

Here is a selection of products we’re most intrigued by:

Known to most of us as “chicken skin”, keratosis pilaris may be harmless but can be a menace to those of us who can’t shake those pesky upper arm bumps—especially with sleeveless season fast approaching. This scrub zeroes in on the common concern, clearing away those rough patches with a mix of glycolic and lactic acids.

Tattooed skin needs love, too, especially in the days after you walk out of that parlour with your new ink. This aftercare balm contains 34% coconut oil and 0.5% non-irritating allantoin to aid in wound healing.

If you suffer from eczema, whether seasonal or year-round, the last think you want to do it strip your skin of oils and further irritate or inflame your skin. This formula goes on as an oil and foams up with water, harnessing the omnipotence of every millenial’s favourite ingredient: coconut oil.

Once you’ve cleansed responsibly, this balm can be layered overtop of your serum and moisturizer to fend off dry skin skin. A 5% concentration of colloidal oatmeal and a 7% concentration of sweet almond oil deliver that soothing comfort we all crave in colder months.

While overnight masks can at times err on the heavier side, this gel formula hydrates while you sleep while keeping things ultra-light. An especially good choice for rosacea-sufferers, it targets redness with a honey and peptide complex and antioxidant-filled green tea extract.

If you live in Canada and plan to stay awhile, it’s not a bad idea to invest in an all-over ointment to slather on dry patches. This soothing formula contains a 4% concentration of cupuaçu butter, which works similarly to cocoa butter, forming a protective, moisturizing layer over skin.
