Hale and Hush
With their roots in oncology cosmeceuticals, the people at Hale & Hush understand that sensitive, health-challenged skin® requires delicate treatment. Now offering a spectrum of skincare products from ultra-sensitive to periodically sensitive skin, Hale & Hush has sensitive skin covered.
A SPECTRUM OF SENSITIVITY
Sensitive skin can range from mild or periodic sensitivity due to stress, environment, hormones, and chemical irritants, all the way to severe or chronic sensitivity from serious health challenges and the treatments or medications that accompany them. Hale & Hush products address the wide spectrum of issues sensitive clients present.
ANTI-AGING FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
Hale & Hush products employ key ingredients to mediate sensitive skin issues first and foremost. Unlike other sensitive skin lines, however, they also utilize gentle but highly therapeutic ingredients to repair and promote a healthy skin barrier. This is critical to prevent premature aging due to the dryness, fragility and overall cellular stress experienced by sensitive skin. They choose ingredients that support the principles of corneotherapy, which corrects problem skin conditions and prevents the breakdown of the delicate skin barrier.
Hale & Hush utilizes ingredients from natural and sustainable plants, flowers and algae. Their proprietary blends of botanicals, nutritional and biotech components are strategically balanced for sensitive skin stages. In the short-term, skin is soothed and comforted; in the long-term, the strategic introduction of these superior ingredients will strengthen and revitalize the skin. Their Saffron Meristem Cream is an example of a “first of its kind” anti-aging moisture cream that fuses the best of nature, science, and sustainable ingredients – and is perfect for sensitive skin.
THE “NO” INGREDIENTS
The Hale & Hush line of clean, pure products contains none of the ingredients known to be sensitizing or allergenic. The “NO” ingredients include gluten, sulfates, parabens and other harsh preservatives, non-chiral ingredients such as dl-tocopherol, and any other known irritants. While most products are unscented, some natural ingredients (such as botanical oils) have a natural, gentle (not sensitizing) scent.
SENSITIVE SKIN IS THEIR SPECIALTY
Hale & Hush is the only professional brand to focus exclusively on products for sensitive and health-challenged skin®. Other brands may claim one or two products for sensitive skin. Only Hale & Hush offers everything clients with sensitive skin want in their skincare products.

FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
Aging, common allergies and household chemicals, plus the environment and stress can leave skin dry and irritated, making it difficult for skin to regenerate and repair.
FOR HEALTH-CHALLENGED SKIN®
Medical treatments and medications can deplete the skin of essential nutrients, leaving it dry and irritated, and can debilitate vital functions of collagen production, cell regeneration and repair.
Hale & Hush chooses the best fitting preservative for each product that is also kind to the environment; Tecniche® does not formulate with parabens.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat and wheat-related grains. Celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis are autoimmune disorders caused by a reaction to the ingestion of gluten (celiac) or skin contact with gluten (DH). Hale & Hush products have been certified gluten-free to prevent adverse skin reactions.
Hale & Hush has created all of their products to be sulfate-free, protecting the environment as well as the skin from harsh chemicals.
A third-party lab performed a “repeat insult patch test” by applying Hale & Hush product on compensated volunteers (not animals) in order to test for skin reactions and make claims that the products are non-irritating, clinically tested and allergy tested; test results are reviewed by a dermatologist.
INTELLIGENT USE OF ORGANIC & SUSTAINABLE INGREDIENTS
Hale & Hush chemists carefully take into account the sustainability of natural and organic ingredients, as well as create a combination of ingredients that are best suited for Sensitive and Anti-Aging skin. Natural ingredients are derived from natural sources, which can refer to earth-natural or scientifically derived lab-neutral. Some earth-natural ingredients are also organically grown, which means they are produced with environmentally sound methods: no pesticides, no chemical fertilizers and no genetic modifications.
Mother Nature creates molecules with two sides or hands, right and left. For reasons unknown to scientists, some right-handed molecules work best on skin, whereas some left-handed molecules are better received by the skin. It may be a more extensive and expensive route, but it has been Hale & Hush’s life work to only use the ‘hand’ of the lab-neutral molecule that best mimics Mother Nature’s perfect plan (aka: chirally correct).
CIRCADIAN RHYTHM AWARENESS
Hale & Hush is acutely aware that skin cells, including critical stem cells, have their own clocks. These clocks are set to “night” in order to proliferate, repair and maintain healthy tissue. However, stress, illness, night jobs, and normal aging can all interrupt nighttime sleep, which can accelerate DNA damage, cell aging and other negative skin ailments. Hale & Hush creates products that address this natural, yet often overlooked skin ‘clock’ dilemma.
BOTANICAL HEART INGREDIENTS
The highly purified part of a botanical that has the highest concentrated levels of the key potent active(s); In other words… the best of the best of a botanical.
LIMITED SCENT; NO ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCE
Hale & Hush products have no added artificial fragrances since artificial fragrances can irritate skin, as well as cause nausea and/or headaches. The aroma of Hale & Hush products stems from the naturally occurring scent of the ingredients; if a product is designed to be scented, then a 100% natural scent was incorporated.
NO ANIMAL TESTING
Hale & Hush tests their products on individuals who fall within a variety of points along the Skin Challenge Spectrum. Hale & Hush does not test on animals.
Hale & Hush chooses ingredients that supportive correction and restoration of the stratum corneum and the skin’s barrier defense systems.
