Cicalfate+: An innovation in skin repair
Better results. Immediately Soothing
HOW DID THE MICROBIOME BECOME A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION FOR SKIN REPAIR?
Until now, our approach to skin repair has been largely mechanical: it involved protecting the irritation using a dressing-effect and attracting growth factors to surround it, accelerating skin repair. Recent studies have highlighted the major role of the intestinal microbiota in the regeneration and healing processes of its epithelium. We applied this model to the skin, and it works.
WHAT ROLE DOES BACTERIA PLAY IN SKIN REPAIR?
It has been discovered that (good) bacteria play a major role in skin repair. In the intestine, they secrete molecules which can activate cell multiplication and thus heal the intestinal wall. For the skin, we used equivalent reasoning by looking to isolate these same molecules and thus stimulate the skin repair mechanism.
HOW DID WE DISCOVER THE KEY BACTERIA IN SKIN REPAIR?
Avène Thermal Spring Water is at the source of this discovery. Thanks to a multi-skill research programme, we were able to identify a unique bacterium, specific to Avène Thermal Spring Water: Aqua. Dolomiae. It is particularly rich in proteins that are able to stimulate skin renewal. Out of Aqua. Dolomiae, our researchers have successfully developed a new active ingredient in skin repair, [C+-Restore]™.
WHAT MAKES THIS ACTIVE INGREDIENT SO SPECIAL?
[C+-Restore]™ is the new patented active ingredient derived from Avène Thermal Spring Water. It is classified as postbiotic because it is derived from a living bacterium and has a beneficial effect on skin repair.
