What makes the Avène Thermal Spring Water so unique?

Have you ever wondered why misting your skin with Avène Thermal Spring Water seems to soothe irritation and itching right away? One reason is its biological signature.

Have you ever wondered why misting your skin with Avène Thermal Spring Water seems to soothe irritation and itching right away? One reason is its biological signature.

After 12 years of work, our scientific researchers identified one of the reasons why Avène Thermal Spring Water is so effective - it’s called “Aqua Dolomiae.”

Avène Thermal Spring Water comes from an extremely deep, pure source that is home to a unique, age-old microflora called Aqua Dolomiae. The two-part name describes its dual nature: AQUA refers to the thermal water in which it grows and DOLOMIAE to the varved dolomite rock through which the thermal water flows underground in Avène.

But what is it exactly about Aqua Dolomiae that makes Avène Thermal Spring Water so effective?
This microflora called Aqua Dolomiae, comes from deep within the earth and produces the active substances found in the Avène Thermal Spring Water that gives it its significant anti-itch, anti-inflammatory properties, helping to stimulate the skin’s natural protection.

This microflora is - and always will be - unique to Avène Thermal Spring Water because it doesn’t exist anywhere else. Researchers at Pierre Fabre laboratories collaborated with the Institut Pasteur, an independant health research centre, to protect Aqua Dolomiae - a watershed discovery in the history of Avène Thermal Spring Water.

But what did the researchers at Pierre Fabre laboratories do with this marvelous discovery? 
After the watershed discovery of Aqua Dolomiae, researchers from Pierre Fabre laboratories were able to isolate the active substances needed to create a multi-component biotechnology asset named i-modulia.

With its ability to reduce itchiness, inflammation, and secondary bacterial infection, i-modulia is the foundation for a new line of products, exceptionally innovative treatments that act directly on the consequences of atopic dermatitis and eczema: XeraCalm A.D.

This important discovery is now part of the history of Avène Thermal Sping Water and all indications show that it is only the beginning…
