Less Itching,
More Living



Atopy-prone skin is skin that is extremely dry and causes significant itching in adults and even more so in children. It is not just a question of hydration: the skin’s barrier function and comfort must be restored.

Our XeraCalm A.D skin care products, specifically designed for dry atopy-prone skin, offer everything you need for a life of serenity and soothed skin.



XeraCalm A.D
Lipid-Replenishing Balm

  • Soothes itching*
  • Nourishes very dry skin

Immediate relief!

Used every day, Eau Thermale Avène’s lipid-replenishing balm works wonders. This emollient acts on dryness, restores the skin barrier, and nourishes the skin in depth, helping the skin feel comfortable again.


Exceptional ingredients chosen for their effectiveness and safety are concentrated in the XeraCalm A.D lipid-replenishing balm.

This is most assuredly the best solution to soothe itching over time and bring back the skin microbiome’s balance!

The European Dermatology Forum gives XeraCalm AD treatments the emollient plus status. The “emollient plus” products improve atopic eczema lesions and influence the skin microbiome of patients with atopic eczema.

At the heart of our range


1st biotechnological active that directly targets itching*


Lipids that repair the skin and strengthen its protective hydrolipidic film

Avène Thermal Spring Water

Reduces feeling of discomfort and softens the skin

Enhanced Efficiency

A made-to-measure active ingredient for atopic skin: I-modulia®

It took 12 years of research to develop the first unique, multi-competent post-biotic active ingredient derived from Avène Thermal Spring Water: 

Formulated based on this patented active ingredient, XeraCalm A.D is an ultra-innovative, ultra-effective and ultra-safe range suitable for the face and body of infants, children and adults. This unique active ingredient acts directly on the factors involved in atopic eczema, in particular itching*. 

No preservatives, and 100% of the ingredients are useful

To use only those ingredients that are useful for the skin and avoid any use of preservatives, our laboratories designed a process that is a first worldwide: Sterile Cosmetics®. This exclusive technology allows for the product to be kept sterile and free from any outside contamination throughout its use.

XeraCalm A.D therefore provides skin subject to atopic eczema with the respect and ultra-safety it needs.

How to properly apply your lipid-replenishing emollient treatment?

  • Once or twice a day with clean hands, and more often if your skin itches.
  • After each shower, to restore the protective hydrolipidic film and prevent itching    sensations. The product should preferably be applied to slightly damp skin.
  • Using both hands for smooth spreading. Spread the product on your hands, then gently help it penetrate into the skin with small, slow, circular movements.
  • Apply a fine layer. Layers that are too thick may cause irritation and prickling.


Do you have a doubt, a question?

We are always here for you

How do I know when to use the lipid-replenishing balm, the lipid-replenishing cream or the soothing concentrate?

The lipid-replenishing Balm and Cream can be used every day to limit and prevent skin dryness and itching*. In addition, the Soothing Concentrate can be applied locally to immediately soothe intense itching*. It is the SOS product to keep close-by! Whether the balm or the cream, choose the texture that suits your skin type or the season: the balm if your skin is very dry, and the cream when it is less dry.

How can I soothe facial eczema?

Rapidly soothe and bring relief to your skin with a compress sprayed with Avène Thermal Spring Water: spray the water on tissues and let them sit for 10 minutes on your face. If you itch*, regularly apply the XeraCalm A.D soothing concentrate, including on your eyelids if needed. In the event of irritation, also use the Cicalfate Repairing protective cream once or twice a day. Still as prevention, hydrate and protect your skin with the XeraCalm A.D lipid-replenishing balm or cream at least once a day.

How can I delay my child’s eczema flare-ups?

Simple, but essential daily gestures reduce skin dryness and restore the skin’s barrier function. Flare-ups are farther and farther apart. A few tips:
Gentle hygiene is preferable, using the XeraCalm A.D lipid-replenishing cleansing oil and warm water (between 32° and 34°C) in a shower or a bath for no more than 10 minutes. Hydrate and protect the child’s skin with a lipid-replenishing balm or cream at least once a day, even when the skin looks good to you.
