Some types of sensitive skin are naturally very dry. Others dry suddenly in the wind and cold. Avene's Body Lotion with Cold Cream incorporates the protective and nourishing benefits of traditional Cold Cream in a fluid formula.
It leaves the skin feeling instantly hydrated, with restored comfort and suppleness.
This non-greasy body lotion is intended for daily use after a bath or shower.
Avene is THE brand for sensitive skin. Why?
The Avene Thermal Spring Water is an active principle of all Avene products with properties for sensitive skin
Avene caters to 3 levels of sensitivity:
1. The regular sensitive skin
2. The intolerant skin (hypersensitive)
3. The allergic skin
The History of Avene:
The village of AVENE is located in southern France, at the foot of the Cevennes Mountains – in the heart of the Orb valley. In 1736 a spring was discovered in AVENE.
The spring wells up from the depths of the earth at a temperature of 25.6 degrees Celsius, to gush clear and pure at the fountainhead. With a pH close to neutral, Avene thermal spring water is rich in silica and trace elements.
For centuries, the Thermal Spring Water has been used to treat serious skin problems such as burns, eczema, psoriasis and other conditions.
The Laboratories Dermatologiques AVENE deal with sensitive, allergic and hypersensitive skins.
The Avene Dermatological Treatment Centre is located at the Avene Thermal Spring in the South of France. Patients can only be referred there by Doctors or Dermatologists. The centre is dedicated entirely to dermatology.
Some of the conditions treated are:
Atopic dermatitis (and more generally, eczema) is the most frequent indication for the thermal cure; an average of 55 to 60% of all patients visiting the dermatological hydrotherapy centre suffer from the condition. Two thirds of them are children younger than 15 years of age.
Psoriasis is the second most popular indication, accounting for 30% of patients taking a thermal cure.
Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional.
