Yes, all Community Sixty-Six products are safe for sensitive skin.
However, we recommend making a habit of doing a patch-test with any new product you use.
WHAT IS A PATCH TEST?
A patch test is a simple way of checking whether your skin will react to new topical cosmetic products.
WHERE TO APPLY?
Choose an area such as the inner arm, behind your ear or the side of your neck. There should be no other products on the skin so that you can properly test the product.
On cleansed skin, apply a small amount to chosen area. You should ideally allow about 24 hours. However, if you experience any pain, burning or itching, immediately wash the area.
PATCH TESTING FOR BREAKOUTS
If you’re patch testing a product to see if it will make you break out, use the following steps:
1. On cleansed skin with no other products, apply the new product directly to your face on either your cheek or your chin. These areas are usually more prone to breakouts.
2. Apply your new product daily (to the same area) for a week to determine whether your skin will react. Product-related breakouts will typically occur within this time frame.

Just like food and medicine, it's important to look for the expiry date on all of your beauty products. Look on the back of yur products for a jar symbol.
These symbols are called PAO's (Period After Opening). They indicate how many months your product is good for after the seal has been broken.

The very first step to understanding skincare, is understanding your skin type.
Why? Because caring for the wrong skin type can cause major breakouts and irritation.
We're here to help you truly understand what skin type you have, what it needs, and how you can properly care for it.
Dry skin is the lack of oil/sebum produced by your skin. It may look flaky, feel tight and also show fine lines and have a rough texture.
Choose moisturizers, ideally creams that lock in moisture and re-hydrate the skin.
Hot water dries out your skin, so switch your tap from hot to warm or cool. After you dry off, moisturize with a cream rather than a lotion, to help minimize irritation.
Combination skin is a mix of oily and dry. Your skin has dry areas around your cheeks, and an oily 'T' zone area (forehead, chin and nose).
Combination skin is about finding a balance between keeping dry areas moisturized, and controlling the oil in areas that overproduce sebum.
Avoid harsh cleansers that contain alcohol or soap, because they can strip your skin of its natural oils.
Oily skin over-produces oil, feels greasy, and looks shiny. Your pores are more apparent, and you feel like you want to wash your face often.
Oily skin needs to be cleansed, hydrated and moisturized. Keep it clean and clear so it doesn't clog.
Oily skin can clog pores that eventually lead to acne breakouts, so using a moisturizer that has oil control ingredients can help minimize oil production.
Sensitive skin is a common issue but not a medical diagnosis. It typically refers to skin that is more prone to inflammation.
The cause of the inflammation may differ for each person.
Products that are "Fragrance-free" mean that they don't contain and added fragrance.
Most dermatologists recommend fragrance-free products, because fragrances can cause skin irritation, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Product that are “unscented” may still contain subtle masking fragrances.
Skin naturally contains ceramides, which help keep moisture in and repair the skin barrier.
Ceramides become depleted over time, leading to dry, dull or irritated skin.
The right balance of ceramides is essential for skin barrier function, and healthy-looking skin.
To patch test a product, wash a small area of where you'd normally apply your product, apply it, and wait 12-24 hours to see if your skin has any negative reactions.
