Nobody wants to have sensitive skin. If we could opt out, we would! However, skin sensitivity is a common problem amongst women across Australia.
Some people are born with naturally sensitive skin – for example, if you have an underlying condition like eczema or rosacea. For others, their skin is prone to flare ups brought on by the environment (think: winter, air-conditioning, fragrance and dust),or laden with harsh acids.

Don't just take our word for it, take a look at some of the product's raving reviews:
"If you are looking for a multipurpose cream then I would recommend Kenkay Sorbolene Cream with 10% Vegetable Glycerin. It is well priced and it can be used for many different things. I have used this as a body moisturiser as the cream has a nice consistency, rubs into the skin easily, absorbs well and yet still feels lightweight onto my skin. Since it is fragrance free and contains 10% vegetable glycerin, it's incredibly hydrating and great for those with dry, sensitive and eczema prone skin. I can use it all over my body with no problem. No irritation or stinging even when I use it on areas of my body that have eczema. I have used it as well for washing my body when my skin was really sunburnt and incredibly dry and sensitive. It cleanses the skin but does not strip it of its natural oils. Instead, it leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. The tube format is easy to use, hygienic and portable so I can keep it in my bag and use throughout the day."

"My skin is dry, it used to always be combination but over the past few years it has become very dry, especially my cheeks and forehead to the point where it would be very uncomfortable. I have searched high and low for the perfect moisturiser. Kenkay Extra Relief Moisturising Cream is perfect for my dry knees, legs, and even feet when I have done a lot of gardening and they are dry and peeling. I actually even use it on my face and don't break out. I have started using it on my daughter's skin as well and even they can see the difference. I definitely will be making this part of my skincare regime now."
