Is this care suitable
for your skin?

  • When

    Our recommendation: use as a 4-week treatment for skin exposed to environmental aggressions.

  • Where

    Apply to the entire face. Apply to dry, thoroughly cleansed skin.

  • How

    Squeeze the base of the bottle and apply 4 drops to the tips of the fingers. Gently smooth and press into the skin.

This product does not contain UV filters and does not replace sunscreen.

Do not use more than 2 pure active ingredients at a time. If you are using 2 active ingredients, you may apply one after the other.

The efficacy of this highly purified and perfectly dosed active ingredient is scientifically proven to help reduce the effects of free radicals on facial skin.

We have added additional ingredients to this active: their exclusive role is to ensure the product’s stability and ability to penetrate the skin (In-Skin patent). Nothing more, nothing less.

Our vitamin E is extracted from sunflower and soya seeds (guaranteed non-GMO and pesticide-free) from India.

  • What effects do free radicals have on my skin?

    Free radicals cause skin structures to degrade, spreading like a chain reaction. It is caused by a number of external (excessive sun exposure, pollution, smoking, etc.) or internal factors (stress, lack of sleep, etc.). This degradation has various impacts on the skin: dull complexion, signs of ageing, loss of elasticity, etc. It is important to use targeted antioxidant products to protect skin from free radicals.

  • What is oxidative stress?

    Oxidative stress occurs when the skin is exposed to too many free radicals. It can denature (or oxidise) a number of cutaneous structures, causing a dull complexion and premature ageing. It is important to use targeted antioxidant products to protect skin from free radicals.

  • How can I protect my skin from pollution?

    Indoor and outdoor pollutants (fine particles, ozone, nitrogen oxide and dioxide, sulphur dioxide, etc.) have harmful effects on the skin. To remedy this:
    1/ cleanse skin well morning and night to remove particles
    2/ use targeted skincare that contains lots of antioxidants. Vitamin E is one of the best antioxidants.
    3/ protect skin against UV rays which worsen the effects of pollution

  • Pure Active: how is this different from a serum?

    In terms of the way it is used, Pure Actives are applied like a serum: to clean skin before your face cream, to provide a specific action.
    But, unlike a serum, our Pure Actives only contain a single, perfectly dosed, active molecule, which precisely targets a skin issue. This means that they are ultra-safe, since there’s no risk of a cocktail effect (piling up different active ingredients). And our INSkin™ patent helps it to penetrate down to where it needs to be in the skin.

  • Pure Active: should I apply it before or after my face cream?

    Always before your moisturising cream, but most importantly, always on clean skin. Thanks to their drop-by-drop bottles, Pure Actives are applied in small quantities, where they are needed (see the detailed instructions for each product).

  • What is the maximum number of Pure Actives that I can apply to my skin?

    We recommend applying no more than 2 Pure Actives at once to your face (1 Pure Active after the other, to clean skin before applying your face cream). In most cases, the best solution is to treat one problem at a time with a Pure Active. If you apply multiple active substances on your skin there is a risk of over-treating it.

  • How long should a Pure Active be used for?

    Pure Actives should be used like a “course of treatment”, for between 3 and 8 weeks depending on the active ingredient and the benefit in question. That’s why we package them in small anti-UV containers suited to short-term use. To ensure they stay effective, you should store them away from heat and light, and for no more than 6 months. You’ll find usage instructions for each Pure Active on the product pages on the site.

  • What is the difference between Pure Skincare and Pure Actives?

    Pure Skincare products do not contain any active ingredients, to take care of skin every day, without needlessly irritating it. Pure Actives offer a targeted action to treat skin problems when necessary (1 Pure Active = 1 skin issue). Healthy skin with no particular issues does not need Pure Actives.

  • Do your products contain fragrances?

    Our Pure Actives do not contain fragrances, nor do some of the other care products such as the Moisturising Eye Contour Fluid, the Melting Exfoliating Gel and the Express Purifying Mask. The majority of our Pure Skincare products are very lightly scented to make them pleasant to use while being kind to skin. We carefully select our fragrances, which we create ourselves, and make sure they are free from allergens and sensitising substances.

  • Are your products tested on animals?

    No, in accordance with the applicable European cosmetics regulations, our products and the ingredients they contain are not tested on animals. Toxicology experts have evaluated our formulas’ perfect tolerance. And, of course, our products are tested under dermatological and ophthalmological supervision if necessary.

  • Do your products contain preservatives?

    In order to protect our formulas from contamination, we use the necessary amount of natural preservatives (black radish extract, potassium sorbate or capryloyl glycine). We also use airless bottles, pumps and tubes to limit the risk of contamination, and therefore the quantity of preservatives.
