Eau Thermale Avene

New for 2012 from Eau Thermale Avene:

D-Pigment – Dark spot Lightener
Specially designed to help those suffering from hyperpigmentation such as sun spots, age spots, liver spots and dark or brown patches of skin, apparently that’s over 55% of us in the UK.  Not surprising as one of the most common conditions is the age spot. Whether you've decided to grow old gracefully or disgracefully, we’re probably all in agreement with Lady Macbeth as she shrieks ‘Out damned spot!’.

What does it do?
It corrects localised or widespread brown spots
Prevents the appearance of new brown spots
Evens out the complexion

The active ingredients:
Melanyde - a depigmenting active which slows down the synthesis of melanin (dark pigment) by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme responsible for the melanin production
Retinaldehyde - skin lightening active derived from Vitamin A
Pre-tocopheryl – protective antioxidant which prevents the stimulation of melanin producing cells by free readicals.

Fragrance and paraben free D-Pigment is to be used in the evening and applied on the dark areas. It is available in two formulations:
Light – offering a highly absorbent texture with shine reducing powders for normal to combination skin
Rich – based on nourishing plant based oils and glycerine for dry to very dry skin

Price £35 for 30ml

Micellar Lotion
A new cleanser and make-up remover for sensitive skin. The micelles (electrically charged particles) gently remove impurities, excess oil and traces of make-up. Can also be used on the eye area. This no rinse formula is enriched with 96% Avene Thermal spring
Price £12.50 for 200ml

First launched in France in 1990, Eau Thermale Avene reached the UK in 2000. All products are based on Avene thermal spring water which is renowned for its therapeutic properties. (apparently discovered around the 1730’s when locals noticed a horse with a severe skin disease had cured itself by drinking and rolling in the waters)The water’s low mineral and salt content is ideal for sensitive skin and its high silica content soothes and softens the skin.
