Our skin is the body’s largest organ. It is the most visible but also the most exposed and delicate organ we have. It protects us from the outside world, and it acts as our primary shield. However, it can become weakened and fragile from everyday activities and environmental aggressors.Covid-19 has changed our daily lifestyles. The constant washing of hands and wearing masks can be damaging to our skin.


Eau Thermale Avène’s Cicalfate range of protective creams are the ultimate SOS to help repair the skin’s barrier anytime, anywhere. Whether it’s the skin, the lips or the hands, Avène has the perfect little SOS product with proven efficacy.


With the recent rise in excessive handwashing and the use of drying ingredients, our hands are becoming fragile and sensitive. Constant hand-washing draws water from the skin drying it out further and can leave hands with a feeling of tightness and discomfort.

Avène’s newest launch this January, the Cicalfate+ HAND Cream, is a hand care hero designed to nourish, protect and repair very dry and damaged, cracked hands. Proven to soothe and protect through 5 hand washings**, this anti-bacterial hero cream is perfect for irritated and sensitive hands. The lightweight formula is fast absorbing and acts like a second skin.

If the skin becomes dry and fragile, especially irritation around the mask area, it’s important to provide the skin with a healthy environment to help soothe and restore.


Avène’s reformulated Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream, which contains a new biotechnological active ingredient called C+ – RestoreÔ, was developed to provide a bandage-effect, protective dressing to the skin. Proven to help restore skin 2.5 times faster (versus no product), this anti-bacterial hero cream can be used by the whole family.


Use Cicalfate+ on the baby to calm the nappy area, localised dryness and peri-oral irritations or keep it in the bathroom cabinet for post-shaving and waxing. The non-sticky cream is also ideal to smooth onto sunburn for immediate relief and works well as a bedtime pamper for very dry hands and cuticles.



With fewer ingredients and better absorption than its competitors, this wonder cream has also been scientifically proven to help reduce the appearance of scars.

The skin around our lips is quite delicate and can easily become chapped and irritated, especially whilst wearing face masks and coverings. A daily SOS lip treatment will help soothe and protect lips throughout the day.


Avène’s Cicalfate Restorative Lip balm is a softening cream designed to soothe and repair localised dryness and to help nourish very dry and chapped lips. Enriched with the patented restoring ingredient Sucralfate*, this wonder lip cream also contains anti-bacterial agents Zinc and Copper and soothing Avène Thermal Spring Water to provide optimum protection for fragile lips. The non-sticky texture, which is easy to apply and hydrates for up to 6 hours, is water-proof and transparent when applied.


The Cicalfate range is suitable for babies, children and adults and is fragrance and preservative free.
