The prevalence of sensitive skin is growing across the globe as consumers are exposed to a growing number of triggers such as environmental and psychological stress that can cause skin irritation. These factors can negatively impact how consumers look and feel with many perceiving their skin irritation part of having 'more sensitive' skin. As a result, the demand for sensitive skin care is rising.

ROVISOME® Sensitive NG fulfills the increasing consumer demand to sooth the appearance of sensitive skin caused by personal lifestyle habits, environmental and psychological stress. It can promote soothing benefits and reduces skin irritation side effects from the use of cosmetic ingredients (e.g. retinol). ROVISOME® Sensitive NG’s main ingredients of calendula and licorice root extract are well-known for their calming properties, especially in treating inflammatory skin conditions. Proven efficacy makes ROVISOME® Sensitive NG the ideal choice to reduce signs of skin irritation.

The ROVISOME® NG delivery system is an innovative technology with a well-established phospholipid-based lipid bilayer. It helps to increase the bioavailability of actives in deep epidermal skin layers, providing the excellent relief effect of ROVISOME® Sensitive NG.
