OUR SUN PROTECTION EXPERTISE

Innovations to protect your health

For 30 years, we’ve been putting sun care products at the heart of our innovation to improve efficacy, tolerance and comfort. 

Our unique Sunsitive® protection combines a patented filtering system with photostable, water-resistant UVA-UVB protection and a unique antioxidant complex for complete cellular protection. All of this combined with the benefits of Avène thermal spring water, known for over 60 years for its soothing, anti-irritating and softening properties.

The effectiveness of each of our Avène Thermal Spring Water Sun Care products is proven by numerous in vitro and in vivo studies. In particular, we have conducted a clinical study under real-life conditions, which has demonstrated a powerful DNA-protective effect**. We are also committed to working with patients, health professionals and the European Skin Cancer Foundation to raise awareness of the dangers of the sun and prevent the risk of skin cancer.

 

UNPARALLELED EFFECTIVENESS

The best of our laboratory research

When it comes to sun protection, Eau Thermale Avène suncare has always been a pioneer: we were the first to produce anti-UVA filters and the first photostable UVB filters.

Today, our Research & Development teams are taking a decisive step forward with the creation of TriAsorB™, the 1st Pierre Fabre organic solar filter. Above all, TriAsorB™ is the first organic sun filter with exceptional photoprotection, extended to a highly dangerous part of the sun's radiation: high-energy visible blue light.

This is a huge step forward for current and future generations who need confidence in effective, safe care more than ever.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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

We know some of the risks (and the list is long): sunburn, allergies, skin ageing, reduction of sun capital… But we sometimes ignore the reasons, although they are crucial. UVB-UVA radiation as well as the high-energy blue light that we absorb during prolonged exposure causes real skin damage. UVB rays do not penetrate far beyond the epidermis, whereas UVA rays penetrate more deeply. Their damage is therefore less visible and can be detected in the long term. As an extension of UVA, blue HEV light causes deep cellular damage to the skin over the long term by attacking all the cellular components: lipids, proteins and DNA.

The mineral suncare range, which has no fragrance or chemical filters. It's the perfect balance between sun protection and optimal skin tolerance.

We are committed to protect your skin and to be more environmentally friendly. Our products are formulated with a minimum of non-water soluble solar filters, without silicone for optimal biodegradability. Our sun care products are developed with a view to respect marine biodiversity: the filtering system has been tested by an independent laboratory* which has demonstrated the absence of impact on a species of coral, a species of phytoplankton and a species of zooplankton, key organisms in the marine environment.  Not forgetting that all the ingredients we use have been carefully selected by scientific experts to meet 3 objectives: harmlessness, effectiveness and tolerance. They are chosen and perfectly dosed to create the best for you.
