Skin redness needn’t compromise your radiance.

In this post you will find advice on the best anti-redness skin care ingredients and we will show you how to build an organic anti-redness serum and moisturiser routine that restores a balanced and even complexion to dry and easily irritated skin.

Our natural anti-redness skin care products are available to buy in the UK and internationally. 

Anti-redness skin care bestsellers

We've hand-picked our best natural moisturiser, serum, night cream and cleanser to calm away redness and promote an even complexion.

Our best anti-redness serum

Our Age Defy+ Soothing Anti-Redness Oil Serum is our best anti-redness serum, especially targeted to relieve the redness seen in menopausal and perimenopausal skin.

Made in the UK using innovative plant stem cell technology from Apricot Stem Cells and delicately scented with Palmarosa, Neroli and Lavender, this feather light luxury organic anti-redness serum coats skin in a comforting blanket of balancing ingredients to leave irritated skin calm and restore a radiant, youthful skin tone.

Suitable for all skin types, including skin affected by eczema and rosacea, apply it neat to patches of skin most prone to redness or combine with moisturiser and tap onto the face and neck. Allow a few moments for skin to absorb your serum, then apply your facial oil.

Our best anti-redness moisturiser

Our favourite anti-redness moisturiser is our Scent Free Anti-Ageing 24-Hour Cream. A soothing organic face cream with a moisture-retaining complex at its core, this blends redness-calming Squalane and Sunflower Oil with anti-ageing Baicalin and Evening Primrose Oil to leave redness-prone skin firm, comfortable and protected against water loss and dehydration.

This unperfumed anti-redness cream can be applied day and night and its gentle formula is designed to be suitable for skin that’s prone to eczema, rosacea or psoriasis.

Our best anti-redness night cream

When you need an anti-redness night cream, reach for Truffle Night Cream. A gentle, scent-free night cream formulated to help you rest without the worry of waking to irritated and inflamed skin,  this combines redness-relieving Northern Truffle with skin-barrier repairing Ceramides and hydrating Apple Cellular Water.

Apply to freshly cleansed skin at night and these actives will soon set to work enhancing skin barrier defences and the skin’s tolerance to stresses, such as irritants. Thanks to a plethora of moisture-binding plant oils, it will also help to reset your skin’s hydration levels so that dry patches diminish and you wake to calm, fresh, soft skin.

Our best anti-redness cleanser

Sometimes ingredients in your face wash or cleanser can aggravate easily irritated skin. Perfume, ethyl alcohol, soap and methylisothiazolinone are just a few of the ingredients that can cause redness.

We suggest cleansing skin that’s prone to redness with our Scent Free Cleanser & Make-Up Remover.

Free from skin-drying alcohols (ethanol/ethyl alcohol) and made with a blend of calming Calendula and moisturising Shea Butter, this effective anti-redness cleanser hydrates as it cleanses to leave skin feeling soft, fresh and calm.

Calming redness: ingredients to avoid

If your skin is prone to redness, you should try to avoid the following in your skin care routine, as these ingredients can be drying and may irritate skin that’s prone to redness.

6 of the best natural anti redness skin care ingredients

The best anti-redness skin care ingredients are natural, non-irritating actives that soothe and restore the skin barrier.

Apricot Stem Cells are a key ingredient in our Age Defy+ Soothing Anti-Redness Oil Serum and can be relied on to calm red and inflamed skin. Because they can increase the skin’s level of tolerance and improve microcirculation, these anti-redness plant cells help to reduce skin irritation and restore an even skin tone to redness-prone skin.

Apricot Leaves

Sunflower Oil Unrefined organic sunflower seed oil is a botanical base oil that’s bursting with benefits for skin prone to redness. When cold-pressed into golden oil, sunflower seeds secrete fatty acids and Vitamin E which can calm, soften and protect the skin barrier. A gentle skin care oil that’s even suitable for ultra-sensitive skin, Sunflower Oil’s anti-inflammatory properties make it an ideal skin care ingredient for skin that’s prone to redness.


Camellia Seed Oil has similar properties to Sunflower Oil and sinks seamlessly into the skin without feeling greasy. An exceptional natural emollient it soothes and balances the skins texture whilst slowing down the skin’s rate of trans epidermal water loss (TEWL).  Like Sunflower Oil, it is also rich in Oleic Acids, Linoleic Acids, Vitamin E and other skin-beneficial minerals. It also contains Squalene – an oil naturally produced by the skin which is typically lower in complexions that are prone to redness, eczema and irritation.

Camelia Seeds

Squalane is an ultra-gentle anti-inflammatory emollient and is an ideal anti-redness skin care ingredient. This protective ingredient converts to Squalene once applied to the skin and then binds itself to moisture to form a seal on the outer layer of the skin. This supports the skin barrier and protects sensitive skin against redness and dehydration.


Sweet Almond Oil is another anti-redness oil that we love. Cold-pressed from Almond Tree Kernels this soothing, light oil is slowly absorbed and helps the skin to balance its loss and absorption of moisture to deliver long-lasting defence against skin dryness and irritation. Rich in Vitamin E, we use Sweet Almond Oil in our Age Defy+ Soothing Anti-Redness Oil Serum.

Sweet Almond


Northern Truffle is a real treat for soothing skin that’s prone to redness and irritation and has been shown to reduce skin reddening by as much as 90%. Ideal for relieving redness in sensitive skin, this plant active is scientifically proven to reduce skin reddening by 90% and reduce skin discomfort by up to 100% within minutes.

Used in our Nordic Roots Truffle Night Cream, it’s the perfect ingredient for helping to calm easily irritated skin at night and has even been shown to help increases the overall tolerance of skin to irritants.
