All BIODERMA products are formulated according to the ecobiology principles, which is at the heart of NAOS approach to respect the skin ecosystem and preserve its health lastingly.

Sensitive skin can have a dual origin: a natural sensitivity resulting from a biological dysfunction (sensitive skin) or a sensitivity induced by the environment and the way of life (sensitised skin).
Resulting from advanced Bioderma research, DEFENSIVE TECHNOLOGY acts on these two types of sensitivity. This technology not only calms the symptoms associated with sensitivity, but strengthens the self-defence power of the skin and acts on the vicious circle of sensitive skin to provide long-term results: 

- antioxidant protective action with the combination of carnosine and vitamin E

- soothing action with polyphenols of red sage which act on double inflammation (neurogenic and keratinocyte)

- fortifying action of the barrier function to protect against attacks thanks to tetrapeptide-10

Does your skin tingle? Does it get hot? Is it uncomfortable? These can be symptoms of sensitive or sensitised skin, which requires special attention and an adapted care routine.

Sensitive and sensitised skin reacts to stimuli that are usually harmless to other skin types. You will typically experience feelings of discomfort which may be permanent or temporary. Sensitive skin can have a dual origin: a natural sensitivity resulting from a biological dysfunction (sensitive skin) or a sensitivity induced by the environment and the way of life (sensitised skin). Certain environmental factors (pollution, UV ...) and lifestyle (stress, some cosmetics...) can sensitise the skin or worsen the symptoms of already sensitive skin. So during life, any skin can experience these symptoms.

This product has been 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 the skin type – to strengthen its resistance.

Bring back the old formula!
The old version of this cream is infinitely better than this one. It provided wonderful hydration without clogging the skin. Why would you add oils to this perfect formula??

Great for my sensitive skin
I can't comment on the previous formula, I've only used the new one, and I love it. This moisturiser is my go-to when my skin is feeling really sensitised or my rosacea is flaring up. It's difficult for me to find moisturisers that don't irritate my face, but I have no issues with this one, feels moisturising but not heavy, the ingredients are great and it's not too expensive. Definitely repurchasing

Destroyed my sensitive skin
The old formula for Sensibio light moisturiser was my absolute holy grail for someone like me who has chronic acne rosacea and PD. Why would you discontinue a magical skin saving product to replace it with something else which causes breakouts and sensitivities?. Defensive has literally ruined my skin & given me a massive 3 plus month ongoing flare of rosacea & occular rosacea. The old formula was the only moisturiser my skin would tolerate & I have spent 1000's trying to find something of equal excellence but to NO avail. Big thumbs down for this new formula!!
