The powers of peony for caring for sensitive skin The solution to soothe sensitive skin

Does your skin react to everything? It's time to get back to basics with a skincare routine specifically designed to calm and soothe the skin. The good news is that nature provides us with everything our skin needs. Our botanists have chosen the peony for you.

Who should use peony?

Peony is a plant-based active ingredient that soothes. It is also the star of Klorane’s soothing hair, body and face ranges. Highly tolerant, Klorane's Organic Peony is perfect for: 

- Sensitive and reactive skin 

- Dry, normal and combination skin types 

- Children from 6 years old

However, it should not be used: 

- On oily skin

- In the case of a more serious condition such as eczema or psoriasis

Properties of peony

Used in Asia for thousands of years, the peony has incredible properties for the skin.

Its richness in paeoniflorin, found in its roots, gives it soothing and anti-irritant properties. It reduces sensitivity by half and instantly reduces feelings of discomfort, heat and tightness of sensitive skin.
