Reveal and protect the radiance of your skin, day after day.

Oxidative stress, pollution, UV rays and blue light from screens accelerate the appearance of signs of ageing. An effective response is needed! Eau Thermale Avène Laboratories offer an expert solution: a ProVitamin ritual to help the skin defend itself against damage caused by oxidative stress and prevent signs of ageing. A-OXitive is your best friend in preserving the skin's beauty!



Antioxidant Defense Serum

  • Equivalent to 15% pure vitamin C¹
  • Boosts the skin's radiance

Lightweight and fluid, with a non-greasy finish, it helps the skin defend itself against the harmful effects of oxidative stress. Used on the face, neck and décolleté, it promises smooth, protected skin. Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced and the complexion is fresh, radiant and vibrant with energy!




Smoothing Water-Cream

  • Antioxidant: rich in pro-vitamins C and E
  • Protects against pollution

Its fresh and moisturising gel-cream texture creates an anti-pollution barrier without compromising on comfort for the face, neck and décolleté. The complexion is illuminated, early wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed out and the skin's texture is more even. For glowy, clear skin!



I’ve been using this product for several weeks. I really like its fluid texture. The fragrance is pleasant. The Smoothing Water-Cream moisturises and refreshes my skin. Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced. The complexion is radiant and looks less tired. I definitely recommend this product!

To help fight against the oxidative stress caused by our environment and our lifestyle, Avène Dermatological Laboratories have developed a chrono-active ProVitamin routine that takes care of the skin, day and night. These ProVitamins are progressively released, which guarantees a regenerating effect and antioxidant protection throughout the day. Suitable for all skin types, including the most sensitive, and offering long-lasting action backed by naturally soothing and anti-irritating Avène thermal spring water.



Antioxidant Shield Complex [ProVitamins C & E]

Two powerful antioxidants:

- ProVitamin C (Ascorbyl glucoside): more stable and penetrates the skin better than pure vitamin C.

- Provitamin E (Pre-tocopheryl): more effective than vitamin E.

They help to fight against daily oxidative stress and the damaging effects of pollution. They act on signs of ageing and boost the complexion’s radiance.

You will find these active ingredients in the Smoothing Water-Cream, the Antioxidant Defense Serum and the SOS Antioxidant Sheet Mask




Renewing Complex [Retinaldehyde and ProVitamin E]

The other defence system against the effects of oxidation and free radicals: the synergy between Retinaldehyde and ProVitamin E.

Retinaldehyde is a key active ingredient in anti-ageing prescriptions. It has anti-wrinkle properties that fight against skin ageing without causing irritation. 

Combined with Provitamin E (Pre-tocopheryl), they create a renewing complex to boost cellular activity and detoxify the skin. In this way, signs of ageing are delayed, the pores are tightened and the skin texture is refined.

You will find these active ingredients in the Peeling Cream and the Smoothing Eye Contour Cream.



Do you have a question or concern? We’re always here for you

The A-OXitive range aims to protect the skin against external aggressors (pollution, fine particles, unbalanced lifestyle) and internal aggressors (stress, chronobiological ageing). Products from the range also aim to smooth the first signs of wrinkles and restore radiance to the complexion. Once you notice the first signs of wrinkles, feel your complexion is dull or your skin lacks protection on a daily basis, A-OXitive products are for you.

The A-OXitive range has been built around a routine that increases the benefits of the products tenfold. The effectiveness of the care routine (morning: Antioxidant Serum + Smoothing Water-Cream; evening: Antioxidant Serum + Peeling Cream) has been scientifically proven (see "Proven effectiveness”).
Similarly, the tolerance of the products in combination has been clinically tested, so the use of the products together is strongly recommended.

The tolerance of A-OXitive products has been tested on sensitive skin.
