This gentle face oil aims to soothe, calm and moisturise sensitive skins. Kalahari melon seed and jojoba assist in maintaining the skin’s barrier function, while the subtle scents of cypress and lavender keep your pores clean. Lightweight, silky, and fast-absorbing.


Suitable for sensitive, irritable and problem skin types such as those prone to acne, psoriasis and eczema.



After cleansing and toning, apply 4-6 drops to the face and work in gentle circular motions with fingertips. Also suitable for the neck and décolletage.


Our products can be used as supplements to your existing skincare routine. For sensitive skin, try mixing a few drops of 1981 Subtle Serum Face Oil into a blob of aloe gel in the palm of your hand, and apply this emulsion as your moisturiser.
