The A-Oxitive range helps to fight against the harmful effects of daily aggressors (blue light from digital screens, pollution, free radicals, stress). Products from the range also aim to smooth the first signs of wrinkles and restore radiance to the complexion. Once you notice the first signs of wrinkles, feel your complexion is dull or your skin lacks protection on a daily basis, A-Oxitive products are for you.

The A-Oxitive range has been built around a routine that increases the benefits of the products tenfold. The efficacy of the routine (morning: Antioxidant Serum + Smoothing Water-Cream; evening: Antioxidant Serum + Peeling Cream) has been scientifically proven (see "Proven effectiveness”).
Similarly, the tolerance of the products in combination has been clinically tested, so the use of the products together is strongly recommended.

The tolerance of A-Oxitive products has been tested on sensitive skin.
The Peeling Cream and the Smoothing Eye Contour Cream contain Retinaldehyde. We therefore advise you to space out applications if this is the case.
