The Laboratoires Dermatologique of the Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetics company have succeeded in developing an effective filter that protects against blue light. This won it the German Innovation Award. In its packaging, the Eau Thermale Avène brand uses much less plastic than before.
The latest dermatological studies show that so-called blue light penetrates deeper into the skin than UVA or UVB rays and can thus damage the skin and accelerate skin aging. The brand Eau Thermale Avène, available in pharmacies, has been known for skin care and sun protection products for 30 years. The manufacturer Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetics has developed the innovative, patent-pending UV filter TriAsorBTM, which is available in Eau Thermale Avène sun creams. The company received the German Innovation Award for this achievement.
The German Innovation Award honors innovative achievements that break new ground through their added value. The focus is always on the user experience: solutions that make life better and contribute to a better future. 640 submissions in 2022 once again demonstrate the awards great reception by companies and other product developers.
Sustainable commitment of the Avène brand
Eau Thermale Avène says it is committed to a long-term, environmentally conscious approach to leaving a minimal ecological footprint and is taking on the challenge of producing optimally effective and compatible sun protection products with minimal impact on the environment: skin-compatible and biodegradable formulations are among the ingredients in its products. Controversial UV filters are avoided. The amount of plastic used in packaging has been reduced by 63 percent compared to previous products.
