Used to help control serious skin conditions since 1743, Avène Thermal Spring Water is the key element in all Avène skin care products and regimens. Eau Thermale Avène is a complete skin care range with patented technologies for all types of sensitive skin.
It all begins in Avène, a village in the South of France. A 40-year journey through the Cévennes Mountains allows Avène Thermal Spring Water to acquire a perfectly balanced composition of minerals. It becomes gradually enriched with silicates and trace elements such as magnesium and selenium that help restore the natural balance of the skin.
More than 50% of women consider their skin to be sensitive to some degree. Minor skin sensitivity may result in occasional tingling, tightening or itching while serious skin sensitivity could be characterized by redness, scaling and burning. Some people are born with sensitive skin, but environmental aggressors such as water, sun, wind and unsuitable skin care or cosmetic products can also "sensitize" skin.
Sensitive skin can be dehydrated, dry or oily. Therefore, each skin type requires a personalized skin care regimen to address individual skin concerns.
Rooted in dermatology and hydrotherapy, Avène has more than 260 years of expertise in the management of sensitive skin. The entire Avène skin care line is developed to address all types of skin concerns for normal and sensitive skin. If it's gentle enough for sensitive skin, it's gentle enough for every skin.
The efficacy of Eau Thermale Avène with Avène Thermal Spring Water has been proven by more than 300 clinical studies to soothe, soften and help minimize skin sensitivity. Eau Thermale Avène can be used for every occasion because pH 7.5 doesn't sting or burn the skin and low salt mineral content doesn't dry it out. All Avène products are hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.
Hypersensitive and post-procedure skin requires special care to help minimize irritation, burning, stinging and itching. Avène offers essential care with the purest ingredients to soothe, soften, calm and cool reactive skin. Used regularly, these Avène products help the skin recover its natural balance and comfort level.
Skin can be irritated or injured during everyday activities. It's important to provide the wound with a healthy healing environment for optimal recovery and prevention of scarring. Avène's unique, patented combination of powerful ingredients ensures a healthy recovery.
Avène offers a fresh approach to oil and blemish control. The daily program gently purifies the skin and helps reduce excess sebum without drying or stripping the skin. The synergistic action is proven to minimize the appearance of skin imperfections. Nourishing ingredients moisturize and hydrate the skin and a high percentage of Avène Thermal Spring Water soothes and calms the skin.
Rétrinal+ Cream is formulated with two patented ingredients that work synergistically to target skin aging. Retinaldehyde, one of the most effective forms of vitamin A, has been clinically proven to significantly reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles with little or no skin irritation. A photostable form of vitamin E provides moisture and powerful antioxidant protections against free-radicals. Available in two concentrations, Rétrinal+ addresses individual skin aging concerns.
Rosacea is a common condition among the fair-skinned. Intermittent redness and flushing tend to become more persistent over time if skin is not properly treated and visible blood vessels may appear. Skin suffers from burning or stinging, and bumps or pimples may occur. Avène products are formulated with powerful ingredients that work synergistically to target redness-prone skin.
Akérat is a specialized body care range formulated to relieve the discomfort of rough, thick and flaky skin. The synergistic action of urea, salicylic acid and lactic acid nourishes, smoothes and helps restore the skin's comfort level.
Severely dry skin reacts abnormally and easily to irritants, food and environmental allergens, becoming red, flaky and very itchy. The skin on the flexural surfaces of the joints (e.g., the inner sides of the elbows and knees) are the most commonly affected areas. This universal skin disorder usually manifests in infants 1 to 6 months old and 60% of patients experience their first flare-up by the age of 1.
Ultra soothing, rich and moisturizing Cold Cream products combine the emollient properties of almond oil and pure white beeswax with soothing Avène Thermal Spring Water to nourish and moisturize dry skin.
There are many harmful effects of sun exposure, including premature aging and skin damage due to UVA/UVB rays. Avène offers 100% mineral sunscreen that is a chemical-free alternative to protect the skin from the sun's harmful rays. They are also enriched to provide powerful antioxidant protection.
Avène offers complementary products to complete the skin care regimens for different types of sensitive skin, including hydrating cream, gentle eye make-up remover and soothing eye contour cream.
