Avene Thermal Spring Water, Retinaldehyde C.T, HMC and Dextran Sulphate.
Avene is a range of skincare specifically designed for sensitive, intolerant and allergy prone skin. It has its basis in dermatology treatments and is the No. 1 Dermo-cosmetic in France and No. 2 in Europe.
The entire range is based on Thermal Spring Water. The spring water takes a 40 year slow journey underground through the Cevennes Mountains in the South of France and is enriched with precious minerals and trace elements before it finishes its journey in the town of Avene. Of constant composition, Avene Thermal Spring Water has a low mineral content and therefore respects the natural balance and the sensitivity of the skin without causing dehydration or irritation like other high mineral content thermal waters. It is bacteriologically pure, with a neutral pH and rich in silica which soothes sensitive skin.
Avene Diroseal is a product which is suitable for red, sensitive skin. Red, sensitive skin can be characterised by the following symptoms:
- An accumulation of fine blood vessels around the nasal area.
- Watery or irritated eyes.
- Blotchy red patches on face.
- A burning or stinging sensation may often occur on the face, as well as a sensation of itchiness and/or tightness.
- Frequent flushing or blushing is one of the earliest signs of a skin condition labelled Rosacea. Rosacea is characterised by persistent redness around the central face area (nose, forehead, cheeks), with transient bumps and pimples. Rhinophyma, the most advanced stage of Rosacea is chracterised by skin thickening, often resulting in the enlargement of nose from excess tissue.
Avene Diroseal is for skin prone to redness including Rosacea and skin with visible capillaries. Avene Diroseal is a new generation anti-redness cream with a duel preventative and corrective effect on localized redness. It contains a combination of complementary active ingredients: Retinaldehyde C.T helps boost cell metabolism and thicken the upper skin layers, thereby reducing the appearance of redness by making capillaries less visible. H.M.C and Dextran Sulfate are decongesting agents that work to tone the skin’s surface micro-circulation, helping prevent the reoccurrence of redness. Avene Thermal Spring Water, with soothing and anti-irritating properties, works from the moment of application to calm the “hot” sensations often experienced by skin which is prone to redness.
Avene Diroseal has a gentle, creamy texture which brings immediate comfort and relief. Its green tint (the opposite of red in the chromatic circle) partially neutralizes the skin’s high colour. Avene Diroseal should be used for a minimum of three months to experience good results.
