Sensitive skin affects millions of people, it's not only restricted to teenagers. Although there is no miracle cure, there are some effective ways of working with your skin to repair and restore balance. We spoke to Michael Linell, Founder and CEO of Secuvie International to shed some light on effective treatment and care.
Secuvie is a Swedish company focused on the research and development of a natural skin care system for sensitive skin and problem skin conditions. Dermatologists, pharmacists, natural health practitioners, skin care clinics and skin therapists recommend the products. Secuvie's products are developed to the highest European standards for this industry and are now marketed worldwide with key focus areas in Scandinavia, the United Kingdom and now South Africa. The range is tested, safe, non-toxic and non-allergenic.
Secuvie's skin care range is modern, fresh and naturally therapeutic. 'Our pharmaceutical team specialises in creating 100% natural skincare products for problem skin conditions,' says Michael, committed to the dermatology products his chemists and scientific team develop in conjunction with plant extracts and essential oils that protect, repair and enhance the skin.
Why use Secuvie? 'Many products are filled to the brim with chemicals and we wanted to make a safe product available, one that is natural, scientific and has a high efficacy in a range of sensitive skin areas.' Secuvie works effectively on irritated, dry, cracked, reddish skin; on poor elasticity; sunburn and sun damaged skin; under eye rings; wrinkles, dehydration, loss of luminosity and eczema. The product range is dermatologically tested and free from colourants, petrochemicals, alchohols, mineral oils, preservatives and perfumes.
CHD-FA' is a carbohydrate derived fulvic acid, a highly effective plant acid new to the world and the skin care market but with a centuries old proven track record for having therapeutic and curative properties. It is a micro molecule that penetrates the skin working actively on a cellular level to provide energy, harmony and nutrients to the skin. It protects, repairs and strengthens irritated skin. It also assists in the uptake of nutrients from Secuvie's other natural ingredients and bringing rejuvenation to the cells. In combination, these ingredients have a well- rounded therapeutic effect.
The CHD-FA' molecule is bioactive and works as an energizer and anti-oxidant.Specialized technologies, ingredients and science equal a product range that boosts the skin, provides energy and repairs skin.
There are four product ranges: SECUVIE FACE

Sensitivity can be brought on by a variety of factors from skin care products that are too harsh for the skin in terms of fragrances and ingredients; fluctuations in hormone levels; environmental or weather conditons; and lifestyle. By using a gentle product for sensitive skin combined with good lifestyle choices you have the best chance of a healthy glowing skin.
Carl von Linn', from Sweden is recognised as one of the fathers of botany. His in-depth intelligence and knowledge of how plant ingredients work inform the product development process. Pelargonium Graveolens Leaf oil balances sebum production. Lavendula Angustifolio promotes rapid healing, is anti-septic and reduces inflammation. 'We bring all our knowledge of plants, nature, chemistry, science and dermatology in an effective product range with high efficacy to address sensitive skin problems.'
