Anti-ageing: Avene Retinal is a unique combination of Retinaldehyde and peptide. It is a crowning jewel of anti-ageing cream. Retinaldehyde at a concentration of 0.05% shows a both visible and microscopic reversal in the ageing process after 1 year of use in a study conducted on 21 patients.
Skin repair: Oleoyl Tetrapeptide-31 and Vitamin E present in this serum reduce the damage caused by UV rays and boost up the skin repair process.
Soothing: The iconic thermal spring water, along with evening primrose oil, has a calming and hydrating effect on your skin.
