Discover Dermo-Cosmetic Products From France


Early this year, I was pleased to be invited by Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetique to uncover their dermo-cosmetic products at their Shenton Way office. Founded in the early 1960s by Pierre Fabre (a pharmacist at Castres, France), the Pierre Fabre Group is French company with activities in the OTC, prescription drugs and Dermo-Cosmetics. Pierre Fabre is 3rd largest French pharmaceutical group with over 10,000 employees worldwide.

Pierre Fabre distributes some of the most famous dermo-cosmetic brands in Singapore, such as Eau Thermale Avene (skincare) which is the No.1 dermo-cosmetic brand distributed in drugstore in Singapore as well as brands such as Rene Furterer (premium haircare), Klorane (family haircare), A-Derma (Skincare) and Elancyl (Body and slimming Care).

Here’s what I’ve received upon the meetup.

Eau Thermale Avene, claimed as the No.1 brand in France, is originated in Avène, France, after a thermal spring was found in its vicinities. A thermal spring facility was built soon after that to treat patients with burns, eczema, and psoriasis.

Avène Hydrotherapy Center is purchased by Pierre Fabre Laboratories (the 2nd largest private pharmaceutical company in France today).

EAU THERMALE Avène Water is a natural thermal spring water originating deep in the earth and having a consistent composition. After a long journey, it emerges clear and pure to be collected and channelled towards the hydrotherapy center and the production center, where the EAU THERMALE Avène Dermatological Laboratories care products are manufactured. Located at heart of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Nature Park, the EAU THERMALE Avène Hydrotherapy Center opens its doors from April to October each year to offer daily hydrotherapy treatments for adults, children and infants (starting at 3 months old).

Eau Thermale Avene Thermal Spring Water

Avène Thermal Spring Water has a unique, rich, constant composition:

• Low mineral content: dry residue 266 mg/L (Does not dry out the skin)
• Calcium/magnesium bicarbonate profile (Efficacy)
• Rich in silicates: 10.6 mg/L (Exceptionally gentle and soothing)
• Very high trace element content (Restores the epidermal barrier)
• Neutral pH: 7.5 (Restores skin balance)

Eau Thermale Avene available in 13 skincare ranges with more than 100 products target to such as very dry skin, whitening, sunscreen, skin allergy to chemicals, sensitive skin, hydration, and many more.

Elancyl is a pioneer brand for body and slimming for over 40 years. Using high-technology formulas, Elancyl specializes in toning, slimming, pleasure slimming, easy slimming and visible slimming. It works to offer effective solutions for cellulite, slimming, stretch marks, firming and heavy legs.

A-DERMA is the first to introduce Rhealba Oat as an active ingredient in skincare products. A natural active substance derived from plants, Rhealba Oat soothes irritated and damaged skin, and protects fragile skin. A-DERMA products are specifically focused on fragile skin, formulated without colouring agents or alcohol, and where possible, without perfume or paraben. Popular ranges include their daily skin-care range for babies & infants, DERMALIBOUR, EXOMEGA & EPITHELIALE A.H to soothe & repair irritated or procedure treated skin.

The KLORANE brand was founded on a passion for plants and nature. Since 1965, botanists, agronomists and pharmacists have been observing and cultivating plants to extract original active ingredients for our products. KLORANE Laboratories carefully selects each plant based on the specific needs that its properties address. Having experienced the transformative power of botanicals through innovative, safe and effective formulas, the main goal is to preserve and respect nature—so much so that we created a patented research and development process known as Pierre Fabre Botanical Expertise®.

RENE FURTERER, a part of Pierre Fabre Laboratories since 1980, incorporates a careful and exclusive selection of pure essential oils and plant extracts from all over the world to deliver optimal results for any hair and scalp type.

A pioneer in hair care, RENE FURTERER dedicated his life’s work to the principle: Beautiful hair grows from a healthy scalp, just like a plant in fertile soil.
