All BIODERMA products are formulated according to the ecobiology principles, which is at the heart of NAOS approach to respect the skin's ecosystem and preserve its health in a lasting way.

An ecobiological breakthrough for sensitive and sensitised skin, the DEFENSIVE TECHNOLOGY, acts on both types of sensitivity to give to the skin the power to defend itself and live normally even if its environment is aggressive. DEFENSIVE TECHNOLOGY acts on the causes of sensitive skin and prevents sensitivity induced by environment and lifestyle by stopping the vicious circle responsible for the aggravation of sensitive skin:

  • Protective action: carnosine and vitamin E present a powerful antioxidant activity to protect the skin against aggressions
  • Strengthening action: tetrapeptide leads to an effective recovery of the epidermis thanks to the production of key elements of the barrier function
  • Soothing action: red sage polyphenols limit the hyper-reactivity of the skin

Designed to support the skin on a daily basis in the management of its sensitivity, whatever its origin, Sensibio Defensive improves the quality of life of users.

Sensitive skin reacts more than normal skin to stimuli that are usually of no consequence. It experiences sensations of discomfort that may be permanent or temporary. This skin is constantly fighting against the aggressions of everyday life. It no longer has the weapons to defend itself properly, which prevents it from returning to its normal threshold. Sensitive skin may have two origins: a natural sensitivity resulting from a biological dysfunction or a sensitivity induced by the environment and lifestyle. Indeed, some environmental (pollution, UV rays, etc.) and lifestyle (stress, diet, etc.) factors can sensitise the skin or even exacerbate the reactivity of already sensitive skin. Thus, over the lifetime, any skin can become sensitive.

This product was formulated according to the ecobiological approach of the NAOS Laboratories to take care of you. At the heart of this product:

Skin sensitivity is natural or induced by external aggressions. This technology acts on the causes of sensitivity and prevents skin reactivity, oxidative stress and alteration of the barrier function induced by daily aggressions.

External stress can make the skin reactive and sensitive. This patented complex increases the skin’s tolerance threshold – regardless of skin type – in order to strengthen its resistance.

Lovely base for make-up, keeps my skin moisturised all day and I'm happier with the ingredients included. On my second tube and like the rich version for night time.
