"Sensitive skin" is a term used to describe heightened skin sensitivity and a high incidence of adverse reactions to certain irritants. The more common skin irritants are environmental factors such as cold, wind, rain, sun and heat, detergents and certain skin care products. Sensitive skin is a very common condition and more than 40% of people say they have it. It appears as redness, swelling, itchy and dry irritation to the face. Individuals with sensitive skin have to use high-quality products to minimize the risk of skin complications. In this article the results from three clinical experiences in the treatment of sensitive skin with a new line of topical products (Rilastil Pelli Intolleranti: a detergent and two creams) are shown. The products forming Rilastil Pelli Intolleranti line were well tolerated and quickly relieved the symptoms of sensitive skin.
