Ingredient Harmony for Sensitive Skin Types
Aside from looking out for key ingredients, there are also ‘troublesome’ ingredients which can cause an unwanted reaction on your delicate skin.
Any savvy consumer needs to know this.
Ingredients such as Benzoyl Peroxide, Retinoids, Hydroxy acids, Hydroquinone, Vitamin C and Peptides can react negatively if not properly layered with the correct skincare knowledge.
For example, layering acids with a retinol product can potentially irritate your skin and cause adverse reactions.
Therefore, please take caution on what Soothing or Acne control products you use when treating your dark spots. Treating acne together with treatment for brown spots is not recommended, as the tyrosinase inhibitor efficacy is affected by oxidizing agents (e.g. benzoyl peroxide for acne)
The pH of Your Skin Affects The Efficacy of Your Skincare for Sensitive Skin
There is scientific evidence behind the importance of skin pH
Our skin pH varies in the acidic range spectrum.
Understanding the acidity of your skin’s pH plays a crucial role in your skincare routine.
You need to choose skincare products that can play a major role in not only their effectiveness in controlling your oil production but also how well they interact with your skin.
Our Skin Soothing & Hydrating Booster is formulated at a pH of around 4.5 – 5.5 which is close to skin’s natural pH. Plus all formulations are free of added fragrance, making it safe and effective for all skin types.
Especially the sensitive ones.
It is recommended to layer together with our Revitalising Moisturiser Cream. Formulated with a pH of 5.4 – 6.6, the gentle pH levels make it compatible with Skin Soothing & Hydrating Booster. This good compatibility ensures the best result when you personalise your snowperk experience.

Skin Health is the absence of the 4 main barriers to healthy skin which are:
- Disordered pigmentation and
- Inactive fibroblast and keratinocytes.
The definition of skin health is the same across all skin barriers. A validated questionnaire determines which of these barriers to skin health are present and assigns a snowperk iD Skin type. The 3min questionnaire has been scientifically validated.
