Derma Sensitive is super active ingredient taken from young caper buds, which has been scientifically shown to create a clear and uniform skin tone. It also reduces skin's reactivity and increases feelings of skin comfort and suppleness.
 
Nanosun a sun block made from micronised Zinc Oxide. It is 100% sun stable, gives full spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays and is totally transparent on the skin. It will help to prevent redness and skin flare ups due to sun exposure.
 
Indenyl creates 24-hour moisturisation. It prevents water loss by naturally copying the hyaluronic acid which is the skin's natural water retainer. Indenyl is extracted from the Indian plant cassia angustifolia.
 
Anti-oxidants are important for skin health and appearance. NDGA is up to 100 times more effective than vitamin E, vitamin C, or grape seed polyphenols.
 
The KALME range works to improve skin flora with two potent natural anti-bacterial agents, glycyrrhizic acid which is extracted from liquorice and a plant extract from Lithuania called Perilla Seed, which is extremely high in Omega 3 and Alpha Linolenic Acid.

Bought the range, this was included. Won't go out without it now that Kalme has calmed my rosacea. Hoping along side the UNDERCOAT it will keep rosacea hidden away beneath the skin.(not under make up). Three weeks of using KALME range including camo cream and redness greatly reduced.

I only used this once and had to take it straight off. I folliwed the instructions and shook it really well before applying however it was really shiney and looked like I had applied a children's sunscreen on my face which no matter how much I tried to rub in did not go away, was very white in colour and very noticeable. I feel really disappointed as was soo hoping after reading all the positive reviews that this would be the one. (Posted on 19/08/2017)

Day cream is fantastic - absorbs quickly and does not leave white or shiny veil on my face and neck. I have tried so many different sunscreen creams in the past 5 years and this is the first one that has worked from the get-go and has kept working for me. I suffered from medication-induced photo-sensitivity last Aussie summer due to ingesting antibiotics for 18 months to control Rosacea. What a nightmare. I stopped the antibiotics and decided to put up with the red skin - but now that I have found the Kalme range, the redness has reduced and my skin has stabilised. Very Very happy. Pricey - especially to Australia - but worth it. (Posted on 11/08/2017)

I didn't know what to expect from this one as I don't have a very good track record with SPFs but this went on really smoothly, the consistency is nicer than I expected and although it took a couple of minutes to fully sink in my skin didn't feel too heavy or clogged wearing it and it didn't make my redness flare up at all, if anything it calmed it down.

Don't do what I did. Apply your Undercoat first. I didn't read the instructions. They are a bit small without my glasses. I cleansed then applied the day cream and it was a problem to rub in. Luckily someone had emailed me and warned me it needed to be rubbed in a lot bc the natural zinc etc lies on your skin. However now I am doing it correctly it is much easier. Apply after Undercoat and it slips on more easily. It does reduce redness. I'm going through a flare up at the moment so it is helping. (Posted on 21/07/2017)

I suffer from a mild rosacea and I've tried so many different products, but I've never find a day cream that really worked for my skin until I tried this and even better it is much cheaper than other products I've tried before. After using the serie of Kalme products for a couple of month my skin looks a lot better and my rosacea has improved a lot. I recommend using the whole serie to get the best results.

Having had one summer of skin problems, and a reminder this year that the sun is going to bring out the red bumpy spots again, I searched for a day cream with good sun screen in it. The reviews really sold this to me and I haven't been disappointed. The cream does go on well - it is quite runny coming out of the tube so I could be more sparing with it. It soaks in well and is reassuring knowing I have an spf25 on all day.
I will continue with this.....it really is great! (Posted on 29/05/2017)

After using it regularly for two weeks I saw my 16-year's rosacea get worse - if that is even possible. New breakouts, more itchy, more red and inflammed.
Probably this product is not for my skin.
I really hoped it would be the solution to my problem!
In general, the cream has a nice texture, is easy to put altho' it remains white on the skin for a little, and the perfume is very delicate.
A bit expensive maybe, but that would not bother me if it could lessen the redness of my cheeks.
I am not disappointed of the product anyway. (Posted on 25/05/2017)

I used the spf day cream today and although my skin felt really moisturised and comfortable this morning, as the day went on my face became very tight and sore. I couldn't wait to get home to cleanse my face and put a trusted moisteriser on. My face has broken out in more redness and lumps which I am hoping will go down. I was so hoping this would suit me as the product information and reviews look amazing but I just wanted to warn people to be wary when trying it. I may try again once more when I am at home for the day and may try topping up with moisteriser later on in the day but I am not sure at the moment. I'm hoping I can reduce the redness and new breakouts soon. (Posted on 09/05/2017)

I expected not to get on with this cream but I really do. If used with the instructions - 15 mins after anti sensitivity cream and 10 mins before make up - it provides a soft smooth base. My skin, after initially finding this whole range quite heavy, just soaks it in and I have to say that with this and the night cream my skin is looking better than it has in ages and that's even when I was pre my rosacea break out!

I bought this along with the undercoat to try and help my poor face which is constantly red and very very dry and sensitive. I don't have rosacea but do suffer from flushing and skin sensitivities which leaves me face very red and dry and unable to wear make up. This cream does a wonderful job of calming the redness down and doesn't irritate whatsoever. Left my skin lovely and smooth and reduced the amount of dryness that appears during the day. Really impressed and about to make my next purchase. (Posted on 13/04/2017)

After about a month of use I haven't seen the results that some of the reviews suggest I should have had. I get a slight reduction in redness for some time after I've applied the cream, and I wonder whether that's the result of the zinc oxide. I'm willing to try another Kalme product such as the concealer as that is its specific purpose. (Posted on 11/12/2016)
Best Zinc Oxide moisturiser!*Review by Fliss
Price
Value

Full disclosure for anyone reading this, I don’t actually have rosacea – just sensitive skin and spots, that I after years of battling I realised responded really well to face creams that had a high zinc oxide content. When my previous favourite was discontinued in the UK I did lots of searching online and found this. I have to say it’s brilliant, compared to ones I’ve used before it’s very non greasy and matt on the skin, doesn’t irritate at all and has really helped my breakouts.
I’ve been using it for almost 2 months and my skin has only got better as I’ve continued using it. I wouldn’t use any other moisturiser now, it’s been totally fantastic and really helped my skin after it got quite bad over the summer due to hormonal problems. Very relieved and happy to have found Kalme and highly recommend! (Posted on 25/11/2016)

This cream seems to be working well on my skin and I haven't had any adverse reactions to it even though I have sensitive skin. I use a very small amount on my cheek and nose area as I find it too greasy to use all over my face but when used in small amounts it blends in well. (Posted on 17/11/2016)

Just received my third bottle of the day defence and after six months use theres a definite improvement. I still get the odd rosacea spot/flare up which is frustrating but as there's no definate cure I think this is the closest ill ever get with just managing the rosacea. The cream is easy to apply and with the sun being a big culprit for rosacea flare ups the spf 25 is a huge bonus. If your looking for a quick fix im afraid there isn't one for rosacea, long term management is the key and kalmes day defence has definitely made an improvement. 6 months ago I was prescribed antibiotics and a gel but the idea of that treatment for life was a huge no. Cleanser and day defence have made more of an impact than my prescription ever did. (Posted on 25/09/2016)
Gone back to the SP25*Review by Karron

Used this first time around and it was amazing. Then switched to the new product SPF30, this maybe ok for some but I found my redness seemed to flare up much more with the smoother consistency of the SPF30. The grainy particles are a small price to pay, and they simply disappear on the skin, more so if the bottle is shaken before use. I personally think the price is reasonable compared to other high quality moisturisers on the market and as others have said the cream lasts just over 3 months, only a small amount is needed, and the relief from that stinging and tingling sensation is worth so much more. Just give it a try . (Posted on 21/09/2016)

I was diagnosed with Rosacea in July, having it for such a short amount of time I was feeling very self conscience having never suffered with acne etc. My doctor gave me Metrogel and to me it made it look worse. I found an artical online and this women's Rosacea was practically cured, by using Kalme. I bought the Kalme Day Crwam 25 SPF and it was amazing how much it reduced the redness around my mouth and that was only after 2 days use. A huge relief and weight off my shoulders now. You have found a buyer for life, please do not discontinue your products.. (Posted on 13/08/2016)
Best sunscreen ever produced!!*Review by Scout

I have never been happy with sunscreen products. Having a milder form but still Rosacea and a somewhat sensitive skin and sensitive eyes most SPF products either irritate my skin or my eye or both, cause breakouts, flare ups, itchy skin, red eyes, make up to slide around and even dryness. I also am not a huge fan of chemical sunscreens due to their absorbs ion ability and later studies indicating that some of them actually help cause cell changes instead of preventing them. I also am not a fan of nano technology since we simply don't know what happens to our bodies when these tiny particles can enter our bloodstreams and so on... Anyway. I stumbled upon a blog post of a woman who pretty much matched my description when it comes to having a hard time with sunscreens and a friend of hers had let her test the Kalme mineral SPF 25. And it was the first time in years she could actually enjoy some time in the sun! I just knew I had to try this. And so I did. And my oh my this was a change! It is the weirdest consistency of a cream I have ever tried. It feels like there are some grains in it, and at first that made me a bit scared. But the cream then blends out perfectly and it is easy to put on enough for the SPF to be effective. It does not make me all bluish white in the face. Instead the minerals melts to the skin and the skin feels moisturised, supple and best of all it doesn't itch at all!!!
I doubt you could do a photos hoot with this on without getting a flashback. But if you are just going about your regular life or hang at the beach. This will not look strange on your face. And it protects it so well. I am so glad the SPF is not 50 but 25, since that makes such a little difference when it comes to protection, but such a big difference when it comes to wearability. My Rosacea has completely stopped flaring up since I started using this, the Undercoat and the night cream. So I am forever grateful to this little gem of a skincare company. I will however haunt you for the rest of your lives if you stop making any of these products or stop shipping them to my country should you leave the EU... Just sayin... :) (Posted on 07/08/2016)

I have suffered from redness and rosacea for years especially around the nose. So much so I have had lazer treatments on spider veins which had limited results. I have had veinwave more recently with much more success and much less discomfort. But I wanted a cream that would reduce inflamation ongoing so reducing reoccurence of veins and redness. Well I have been using the Kalme day cream spf 25 and the night repair for about 5 weeks now and I have to say there has been a real improvement in both the skin and reduction in redness. I shall be also trying the wash from Kalme next as I have been very pleased with results so far from the Kalme products. I hope that this continues. Many thanks for the products.

I have mild roseacea and tried this last summer before using the antibiotics that my doctor had suggested. Within days my skin calmed and I immediately stopped experiencing that crawling stinging sensation on hot evenings. I used the cream all summer and it protected well even on hot days, no more skin problems and less redness. I never needed antibiotics. A real test was a few months later when I went to the Caribbean as I thought I may suffer again but it worked a dream. Carried it with me all the time, again no sunburn and no skin problems at all.

My fair skinned sister-in-law was on holiday with me in the Caribbean. She was using Clarins face suncream but her skin was irritated and she'd developed spots and was really suffering. We shared my Kalme and her skin settled down immediately. As soon as she returned home she ordered her own.

It seems expensive for the bottle size but a little really does go a long way. I never use any other skin cream and no other suncream. I dont use it daily unless needed and sometimes use the night cream. I'm back on the site to order more. (Posted on 17/07/2016)

After using the day defence for 2 months ive noticed a difference the redness appears to have calmed down. I still get the occasional spot associated with rosacea but nothing like I was getting beforehand. Might be a coincidence but for what works out at ten pound a month its not worth taking the risk and not using this product. The alternative would be antibiotics which is a big no. One tip I have found is 'less is more' no need to put loads on your face apply thin. (Posted on 01/06/2016)

After a breakout of roseca spots which I put down to adult acne, I was prescribed with an antibiotic gel and some antibiotics which came with unwanted and nasty side effects. I read articles on what other rosecea sufferes were using to combat this relentless skin condition and came across the day defence moisturiser which I was dubious about, I thought how can a moisturiser possibly be more effective than antibiotics but I decided to give it a go and im glad I did after only a few days use I can see the difference. Fingers crossed in the long run this moisturiser is all I need and no more nasty antibiotics. (Posted on 12/04/2016)
