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 ...).

L’Eau Cellulaire contient / Cellular Water contains: AQUA/WATER/EAU, DISODIUM ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATE, CARNOSINE, MINERAL SALTS/SELS MINÉRAUX
