ultracalming

Treat the multiple triggers behind inflammation for lasting relief from sensitivity flare-ups.

Itching, burning, stinging and redness are the obvious signs of sensitive skin. The triggers behind these sensations are less clear: genetics, hormones, stress, chemical assaults, foods and even aggressive skin treatments can intensify skin’s highly reactive state. The common thread behind irritation, flushing and stinging is inflammation. When paired with the loss of skin’s protective barrier, skin health is compromised and becomes highly reactive.

how it works

UltraCalming™ contains UltraCalming™ Complex, our exclusive complex clinically proven to control neurogenic and immunogenic inflammatory pathways that lead to skin sensitivity.

A go-to for sensitized skin!

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about ultracalming cleanser:

Starting using this from the ultra calming kit, at the recommendation of a facialist. Worked liked magic for my red, tight, sensitized skin, which was making breakouts happen more often. It not only feels great going on, and leaves my skin feeling clean.

Doesn't dry or irritate

By 

from North Wales, PA

Comments about ultracalming cleanser:

I've been using this product for several years and highly recommend it. I have really dry skin with the oily T-zone. My skin is really sensitive -- if I lean my hand on my face I'll break out, scarves irritate my skin. I found most facial cleansers to be too drying or just too irritating -- my face would turn varying shades of red from use. When, on a whim, I got a facial at Ulta and they used this product.....I was really curious and asked to look in a mirror to see how my skin looked -- no red! I've used it ever since.

Soothing light cleanser

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about ultracalming cleanser:

For users of the ultra calming line, this cleanser has been consistently reliable for my sensitive skin, particularly for a morning cleanse. In evenings this definitely requires a separate makeup remover prior to be effective.

Very Gentle

By 

from Wisconsin

Comments about ultracalming cleanser:

I tried a travel size of this product, hoping it would calm my sensitive reddened skin from the winter weather. It did this, it's a very gentle cleanser that does not feel like it dries out my skin at all. It's does exactly what it says it does.
The only downside isn't that I also have acne prone skin so it was too calming for that and I have a mild break out...but since the product doesn't claim to do this, I didn't knock a star!

Helped with my redness

By 

from Davis, CA

Comments about ultracalming cleanser:

I used this product along with the entire line of ultracalming products and my redness has decreased tremendously. I wish this cleanser foamed up or lathered up more but i'm happy with the results.

  • Q:

    I'v been using this product paired with the ultra calming toner for two weeks at the suggestion from an esticician after a recent facial. I generally have very clear skin, just a small problem area on the top right forehead. After these two weeks, my entire forehead is breaking out with actual zits, not my usual little red spots under my skin. Is this product compatible for me and its just working out toxins or should I stop using it? I was trying to give the product 30 days but my skin looks terrible, worse than it ever has.

  • Q:

    Does this product also help maintain clear skin and clear spontaneous break outs? I get some acne, but not often, and have pink/red skin that is sensitive. I like the clean ingredients in this product, but I want to make sure it can help keep my skin clear and not just calm.
