Ingredients under the magnifying glass

The ingredients of our formulas have been selected according to very strict dermatological criteria and recommended by independent toxicological experts. Classified in three main categories of active ingredients, you will discover the nature, role and origin of each by clicking on their name.

Here are grouped the ingredients that contribute to the expected effectiveness of the product: those that optimize or preserve the biological skin's mechanisms (such as hydration, regeneration, lipid-replenishing action), and those that have a very specific physico-chemical action (exfoliating, matifying, sun filters ...).

The ingredients listed here are those contained in the latest formula for this product. As there may be a time lag between its production and its distribution on the market, we invite you to consult the list of ingredients on the packaging.
