The confidence of healthy skin
There is a unique bacterium in Avène thermal spring water which only survives in the deep, crystalline waters of Avène: Aquaphilus dolomiae. It is from a culture of this precious bacterium that the researchers of Avène Dermatological Laboratories have managed to extract [C+-Restore]™, the 1st post-biotic restoring active ingredient derived from Avène Thermal Spring Water.
A new active ingredient, drawn from the sources of nature, which promotes the repair of the epidermis
The latest scientific findings on the fundamental role of the microbiome in skin health have led to some exciting innovations in skin repair. And above all, to an increase in efficiency!
These "good bacteria" secrete molecules capable of stimulating repair in the intestine. Our researchers have transposed this model of optimal repair to the skin.
They were able to identify a unique bacterium, specific to Avène thermal spring water: Aquaphilus dolomiae. It is rich in proteins capable of stimulating skin renewal.
They managed to isolate these molecules. It is from this complex biotechnological process that [C+-Restore]™, a post-biotic active ingredient dedicated to skin repair, was born.
Until now, the approach to skin repair has been essentially mechanical: to protect the incomfort with a bandage effect and to attract growth factors around it to accelerate repair.
Now, [C+-Restore]™ helps to restart the skin's natural repair mechanisms. This post-biotic active ingredient accelerates the migration of the cells involved in skin renewal (the keratinocytes). The result? Skin restores faster.
Everyday boo-boos are a part of our lives, for both young and old alike. And while our skin has the amazing capacity to repair itself naturally, there is no question of leaving it to fend for itself!
