Recommended by Australian dermatologists
to soothe and protect intolerant and hypersensitive skin.

Skin Recovery Cream

When it comes to protecting sensitive skin, Australian dermatologists agree that less is more. That’s why they recommend Skin Recovery Cream. Formulated for hypersensitive and intolerant skin, Skin Recovery Cream contains no preservatives, parabens, fragrance or alcohol… just one of the reasons why dermatologists approve of Skin Recovery Cream.

The Benefits of Skin Recovery Cream

  • Calms: Contains Parcerine®, which acts against irritation to calm and comfort the skin.
  • Protects: The hydrating formula provides a long-lasting barrier against external factors.
  • Soothes: Parcerine® combined with Avène Thermal Spring Water softens the skin while reducing skin reactivity, eliminating sensations of tightness.
  • Gentleness: The minimum of ingredients is soft to apply and leaves skin feeling nourished and balanced day after day.
  • 0% preservative, fragrance and alcohol.

Q&A with a Dermatologist

What is hypersensitive skin?

Sensitive skin reacts more strongly than normal skin to certain factors or conditions. This can result in pulling, tingling, itching, redness and dryness.

What products should be used daily on hypersensitive skin?

Reduce the risk of irritation by cleansing with dermatological bars and soapless cleansers, and moisturising with products that contain a limited number of ingredients.

Why is preservative-free recommended for hypersensitive skin?

Preservatives can irritate the skin. Because sensitive skin is more subject to irritation, it is better to avoid using any potential irritants such as preservatives.

Why is D.E.F.I. the best skin care delivery system?

The D.E.F.I. system prevents any air from entering and oxidising the product, ensuring the formula is completely sterile and safe for use. Unlike a regular airless dispenser, there is no dead volume at the top of the product, so there is no risk of retro-contamination or need for preservatives. This system is unique in the world and only used by Avène.
