Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic


Long-lasting Hydration
The synergic action of the two lachrymal mimetic ingredients enables the hydrolipidic film to be restructured, maximizes the presence of Avène Thermal Spring Water and slows down its evaporation.
Protects from UV rays
Reinforced SPF 20 protection - this new combination of photoprotective agents guarantees broad protection against UV rays, thus preventing them from harming your skin. It also provides a very pleasant texture and does not leave white marks on the skin when applied.
Prevents photo-ageing
Because of the pre-tocopheryl it contains, Hydrance Optimal UV Light has an anti-radical action which helps combat the harmful effects of the environment (pollution, cold, cigarettes, fatigue, stress, etc.).
Absorbs sebum and matifies
Because of the sebum regulating capsules it contains, Hydrance Optimal Light has a slightly matifying effect.
Soothing and Anti-Irritant
Thanks to its high content in Avène Thermal Spring Water.

Avene Dermatological Laboratories have developed a line of dermo-cosmetic products that are all formulated with Avene Thermal Spring Water, ideal for normal to the most sensitive skin.

In 1736 a great discovery was made in France, in the small town of Avène. It is here where the soothing and anti-irritating properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water were discovered - a discovery of harmony between water and skin. The unique and stable composition of Avene Thermal Spring Water makes the Avene skincare range ideal for normal, sensitive, hyper-sensitive and allergy prone skins.
