Skin Cancer Foundation
The Eau Thermale Avène brand is committed alongside the Skin Cancer Foundation in the fight against skin cancer through better education, early detection and rapid and effective treatment.
The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends Avène Very High protection compact SPF 50 as this has been proven to protect skin effectively from sun damage.
Avène Dermatological Laboratories is committed alongside the European Skin Cancer Foundation
Created in 2008, this foundation aims to inform and raise public awareness on the risk factors for skin cancer. It also runs prevention campaigns. Today, skin cancer is a genuine public health issue.
Excessive sun exposure (2) has already been established as a key factor in the rising number of cases of skin cancer, including both melanomas and non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC). These are rarely fatal but are becoming increasingly common.
Early diagnosis is essential for a good prognosis. This means it is crucial to educate the public, and children in particular, about the importance of sun protection.
Avène Laboratories have proven expertise in sun care thanks to their long-standing commitment in this field. This helps them to anticipate the needs and expectations of all skin types.
The Avène Sun Care range guarantees genuine protection against sun damage.
This is why we have committed alongside ESCF to supporting actions take by the Foundation
• Educate and inform children about the harmful effects of the sun to help keep skin healthy for the future.
• Train dermatologists in all partner countries on how to diagnose, prevent and treat skin cancer.
