A creamy, nourishing serum that calms signs of sensitivity caused by a compromised skin barrier. With its blend of nourishing oils + rebalancing actives, Great Barrier Relief helps by gently hydrating the skin, soothing irritation, and strengthening the barrier wall to replenish dry skin and kick redness to the curb. Whether you’ve over-exfoliated or got too pump-happy with retinol, GBR is here to lend a calming hand, no bat symbol required.

  • What does it do: Soothes sensitivity, redness + irritation so skin looks and feels calm.
  • Why is it different: Restores and gently moisturizes over-sensitized skin without leaving a greasy after-feel. 
  • Helps with: Repairing and strengthening your skin barrier so it can protect you from environmental aggressors and eczema flare-ups.
  • Made for: All skin types but especially sensitive, eczema-prone skin.
  • Bonus: Our packaging allows you to use up every last drop!

PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free.

Tamanu Oil: Soothes irritation and calms redness without greasiness.
Niacinamide: Helps clear spots, fades discoloration, and brightens skin.
Ceramides: Essential to skin health—helps replenish fatty building blocks of the skin barrier.

The color and texture of Great Barrier Relief may naturally vary slightly from batch to batch. No worries! This is a normal occurrence when using naturally-derived ingredients and it does not impact the efficacy of the formula.

NOTE: Great Barrier Relief does contain 10% Tamanu Oil, which is derived from Tamanu nuts. Though most people don’t have issues using this ingredient, people with nut allergies could have a potential reaction. If you think your skin will react, we recommend performing a 24-hour patch test on your wrist and neck first and slowly integrating GBR into your routine thereafter. If you do experience an allergic reaction, stop using the product immediately and seek medical attention if needed.

The Best Things Come in 3's

Millennial Parent Vibes

Niacinamide a.k.a. the soccer parent of skincare ingredients is a master multitasker. It helps prevent breakouts and fades the look of dark spots for radiant, even skin. That’s good parenting.

New Look, Same Old Fave

GBR’s glowed up. Our OG tried-and-true serum is now in an airless pump that pushes out every bit of product, so you don’t need to break it open. Don’t do it, bestie... Just trust us.

How to Use Your Serum

Apply 1-2 pumps on clean, dry skin. Use a little extra for dry skin and a little less for oily skin. Gently massage into the skin until fully absorbed. If using as a sensitive spot treatment, use light pats or apply with a q-tip.

“Not only does Great Barrier Relief reinforce my skin barrier, at the same time, it also helps fade dark spots. Its hero ingredient is tamanu oil, which gives it this sage green color and its earthy smell. Thanks to me, this is also my mother's favorite skincare product. She's gone through more bottles than I have.”

Within two weeks of using Great Barrier Relief, I was able to see an immediate big difference in skin barrier health, hydration levels, and overall skin radiance.”

    LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    I experience horrible and painful hormonal acne on my chin and jawline area. When my acne is inflamed, this serum brings so much relief to those areas. I use exfoliant products such as BHAs for my acne and I highly recommend this product to put on afterward to help soothe the area.
