The gift of soothing
While the benefits of Avène Thermal Spring Water have long been unexplained, for over 30 years, our studies have scientifically proven its soothing properties. Every day, we put this exceptional active ingredient and our dermatological expertise to work treating your sensitive skin at the Avène Hydrotherapy Center and in our skincare products, to help soothe your skin and make life a breeze.
AT THE SOURCE OF OUR HISTORY
At the source of our history, a meeting between nature and man takes place. Avène Thermal Spring Water has been used throughout the ages. A unique active ingredient, at the heart of our Eau Thermale Avène brand, created in 1990 and dedicated to sensitive skin.
The Avène impluvium is located in the heart of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Nature Park. A unique and unspoiled natural environment where every drop of rain travels for more than 50 years while being enriched in precious elements until it eventually becomes Avène Thermal Spring Water. Today, thanks to our researchers, we know that Avène Thermal Spring Water has a dual mineral and biological heritage which gives it this unique gift – the ability to soothe sensitive skin.
