Sensitive skin is generally classified into three groups:
Group 1: Low barrier function. Alteration of the skin’s barrier function with high TEWL and abnormal desquamation.
Group 2: Inflammation; presence of inflammation, but normal barrier function
Group 3: Neurosensitive group normal barrier function, no inflammation, but exaggeration on the nerve response in the skin

Jojoba Oil is very similar to the sebum created by the sebaceous glands within the dermis. Sebum is fundamental for skin health. It assists in keeping the skin moisturised, maintains skin elasticity and preserves the skin’s barrier. Due to Jojoba oil’s sebum like qualities it is readily accepted and easily absorbed by our skin and has shown to be effective in enhancing the permeation and efficacy of the active ingredients it is combined with.
