Get obsessed with what's important this summer - take care of your skin by protecting it every day with sunscreen! There are thousands of products available in Canada, which we know can be quite overwhelming. It’s most important to understand why, the pros and cons between “chemical” and “physical” and then decide the best one for you. We think Monique Poitras, a Montreal-based Aesthetician with over 30 years experience in the skin care industry, explains it best.

Founded by a French pharmacist and biologist specializing in cellular technologies, Jean-Noël Thorel. In the 1970s, the sun-loving researcher devised a different approach to sun protection that went against traditional ways of thinking. Based on optimized tanning and natural skin protection, it is an anti-photoaging concept. Today, the effectiveness and high performance of its formulas, the trust and respect gained from professionals in the beauty industry worldwide and the loyalty and commitment of its users make Esthederm a leader in the sun care sector.
