A major innovation for sensitive skin

Avène thermal spring water has a unique biological signature: Aquaphilus dolomiae, a microflora that grows only in the depths of the Avène spring.

Using a cutting-edge biotechnological process, Avène Dermatological Laboratories have succeeded in extracting D-Sensinose™, a post-biotic active ingredient. This 3rd generation biotechnological active ingredient with outstanding properties marks a major advance for all hypersensitive skin types that need to reduce their reactivity.

Twenty years of research have enabled the Avène Dermatological Laboratories teams to fully grasp the potential of an extraordinary bacterium, Aquaphilus dolomiae, and to extract a biotechnological active ingredient with decisive benefits for hypersensitive skin.

A novel action on sensitive skin

Why is D-Sensinose™ so innovative... and effective? Explanations.

Skin sensations originate in the sensory neurons at the periphery of the skin. The maladaptive response of hypersensitive skin (tingling, tightness, redness, discomfort) is largely due to a low tolerance threshold of these sensory neurons.

Hypersensitivity is under control.

Hypersensitivity under control

a reality that is difficult to live with on a daily basis.

Tolérance CONTROLis the new solution for any skin type that needs immediate hydration and soothing.
