Aside from this role, it also works with experts in water and the Pierre Fabre Research Group to continue research on the unique genesis and properties of this water. It also provides training and publishes scientific data. Sensitive skin: A field of experts: Sensitive skin tends to overreact to external factors (sun, cold, heat, pollution, ill-adapted products) or internal (stress, food, alcool). The skin itches, pulls, gets red easily and is uncomfortable. These reactions can affect all types of skin of one time or another. In order to soothe and protect sensitive skin, Avene dermatological laboratories hove formulated a line of dermo-cosmetic products following o stringent quality charter, based on Avene thermal spring water. Among these products is a complexion correction line called couvrance. Dehydrated skin: Whether the skin is dry, normal or oily, it can be dehydrated, i.e. temporarily water-deprived. Its elasticity and resistance capacities are then reduced. Dryness settles in. A dehydrated skin is on obviously suffering skin: dull and rough aspect, tightness, dehydration lines. To halt the natural water loss process, our skin uses its proper protection means (hydrolipidic film, NMF, intercorneocyte cement). However, when confronted to external aggressions, these means can turn out to be insufficient. Whatever the age or skintype, hydration is essential to maintain skin balance: a well hydrated skin can defend itself more efficiently against external aggressions (sun, stress, cold...) and against the natural aging process: it is the first care to provide in order to maintain a smooth, soft, toned and radiant skin and prevent the wrinkles and fine lines. Avene dermatological laboratories' research focus: The lachrymal film: Cornea, the transparent film covering the eye, is a particularly fragile tissue. To maintain its function, it must be perfectly hydrated all the time. The tiniest hydration failure leads to o highly annoying eye dryness, which can have worrying consequences. Optimal cornea hydration is ensured by the lachrymal film that constantly hydrates the eye surface. Its composition is perfectly known: Meibum, surface lipid layer which prevents tear evaporation. If we remove meibum from the lachrymal film, the evaporation rate is multiplied by 17. Tears themselves, an aqueous solution that includes mineral salts, urea and proteins. Lipocalin, a protein that favours the link between water and the superficial lipids, preventing water evaporation. Mucin, a glycoprotein secreted by the corneal epithelium, that favours the homogeneous extension of tears over the cornea. The lachrymal film, a dynamic hydration system... It ensures the optimal hydration of the cornea and its protection against external aggressions. Tear water is de facto bioadhesive, it efficiently and durably soaks the corneal epithelium. This bioadhesive property implies an increased contact time between water and the eye surface. This natural eye hydration appears to be the perfect hydration model for a mostly sensitive organ. Hydrance optimale the ingredients: The application to the skin of the latest research on the lachrymal film conducted by researchers at the Avene Dermatological laboratories now makes it possible to accurately reproduce this hydration mechanism in order to bring dynamic, intense and longlasting hydration to sensitive skin. The unique soothing and anti-irritating properties of Avene thermal spring water. The combined action of 2 biomimetic ingredients (reproducing the hydrating and protective system of the lachrymal film) to ensure adequate bioavailability of Avene thermal spring water in the skin: Lipomucine® promotes even distribution and optimises diffusion. Meiboserine® interacts with Lipomucine® as o protective veil. This continuous lipidic film limits Avene thermal spring water evaporation to ensure moisture is retained into the skin for longer. Result: immediate hydration* and long-lasting moisturization*. The skin feels comfortable again: more supple, softer and perfectly hydrated*. The skin is radiant. 1. Altered hydrolipidic film. 2. Disorganised and dehydrated stratum corneum. 3. Meiboserine. 4. Avene thermal spring water. 5. Lipomucine®. 6. Restructured and well hydrated stratum corneum.
