Our tips for your skin
The confidence of healthy skin
Nothing is more sensitive than your baby's skin. Still vulnerable, it cannot fully perform its natural defence and protection role. You must therefore take care to respect this sensitivity, which can be put at risk by irritating products, hard water, the cold and wind, and friction from clothes that are too rough...
Our Cicalfate, XeraCalm A.D, TriXera NUTRITION, Cold Cream, Suncare and Thermal Spring Water ranges are selected for their gentleness and high tolerance, so we have a solution perfectly adapted to each of your baby's skin needs—from hygiene to more specific care. In short, everything you need to provide your baby with the softness and gentleness they deserve.

A FEW WORDS FROM OUR EXPERT
A baby's skin is much more fragile than ours. Its barrier function is not yet optimal, its permeability is greater, its pH less acidic... This is why it requires adapted care, with high tolerance formulas.
Your baby's skin needs all your attention (and a lot of gentleness)
With our expertise combined with our uncompromising focus on safety and effectiveness, Avène Dermatological Laboratories have always been by your side to take care of the sensitive skin of your little ones (as well as the adults!).
Thinner, more permeable, fragile and vulnerable: that's why babies' skin needs even more attention. In response, we’ve developed soothing and comforting skin care products specifically adapted to their vulnerable skin, according to pharmaceutical standards.
Rich in Avène thermal spring water, with its unique properties, our products are:
With the guarantee of using only safe, healthy formulas, all you have to do is pamper your baby. We take care of everything else for the health and comfort of their skin, from the very first days of their life. .
It is important to know that a baby's skin is much more fragile than ours:
The different layers of the skin are thinner: the barrier function is not yet optimal.
The permeability of the skin is exaggerated and, as a result, the baby often faces dryness issues.
The pH of the skin is less acidic, which can make the skin prone to redness.
Melanin production is very low, making the skin very vulnerable to UV rays.
Our Thermal Spring Water Spray, Cicalfate, XeraCalm A.D, TriXéra Nutrition, Intense Protect 50+ and Cold Cream ranges have been tested under paediatric and dermatological control and are perfectly suited to the specific needs of baby's skin.
These products are formulated with minimal ingredients for their extreme softness and perfect tolerance. Their formulas are guaranteed alcohol-free, dye-free, paraben-free, and benefit from the unique properties of the most natural ingredient: Avène thermal spring water.
In the event of nappy-area redness, wash baby's bottom with a mild, physiological pH product such as XeraCalm A.D. Replenishing Cleansing Oil, then dry thoroughly.
Then use some Avène Thermal Spring Water Spray to reinforce the soothing action.
Finish by applying Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream to soothe and promote the restore of fragilized skin. In the case of redness subject to maceration, opt for the Cicalfate+ Absorbing Soothing Spray.
If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
