You already know Pharmaca has certified estheticians on staff to help you find the best skin care routine for your skin type.
But did you know that because of their training, our estheticians are allowed to sell the kind of cleansers, moisturizers and masks typically available only at your favorite spa or dermatologists’ office?
For more about the many benefits these premium “spa-quality” skin care lines offer, read on.
A favorite of dermatologists, Avène’s soothing, calming formulas address a multitude of skin concerns. Each product contains therapeutic thermal spring water to refresh and rejuvenate the skin.
“Our customers with sensitive skin especially love this line from the south of France,” says merchandising manager Tiana Ukleja. “The thermal spring water is infused with trace elements and silicates, which offer healing benefits.”
The popular line also includes formulas for dry, aging or oily skin types, with everything from cleansers to soothing masks and anti-wrinkle creams to gentle make-up removers.
Pharmaca now carries super-hydrating Avène’s sun care, which provides chemical-free, broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
Available in a convenient, travel-size bottle, Avène Thermal Spring Water soothes, softens and calms skin.
With its emphasis on skin health, Sanítas is specially formulated to target and correct a variety of skin care challenges, from hyperpigmentation and rosacea to fine lines, wrinkles and acne.
“What sets Sanítas apart is its unique philosophy of alternating between stimulating and nourishing your skin,” explains Tiana. “They recommend using more active ingredients like alpha or beta hydroxy acids one day and then giving your skin ‘a rest’ by using more nourishing cleansers the next.”
With regimens for dry, oily and normal skin, Sanítas offers introductory kits so customers can try out a line for 30 days. Each kit includes a travel-size active cleanser, resting cleanser, toner, moisturizer and serum. There are also masks, peels and spot treatments for a variety of skin concerns.

Best known for its hydrating, detoxifying and exfoliating masks, Astra’s products and treatments are synergistically formulated to reverse the damaging effects of aging, the environment and lifestyle factors.
“Astara has been around for nearly two decades and has developed a cult following,” explains Tiana.
Formulated with raw plants, powerful antioxidents, flower essences and sea extracts, Astara offers cleansing gels, moisturizers, purifying treatments and purification masks featuring pure ingredients. Pharmaca estheticians often recommend products from this natural skin pioneer for acne sufferers.
