Our tips for your skin
The confidence of healthy skin
In Avène, we are in the presence of inland water, coming from the evaporation of the seas. This pure water mixes with marine particles, becoming loaded with mineral salts, before falling back to a depth of -1500 metres in what is called the Avène impluvium at the heart of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Natural Park.
So why is it considered the water for all sensitive skin types? That’s because, by nature, it’s 100% pure and very low in minerals. Its pH is neutral and it has an ionic balance of bicarbonate, calcium and magnesium, which is optimal for the skin's balance and tolerance. Its unique and unvarying composition of minerals and trace elements, as well as the absence of potentially irritating agents such as sodium and sulphur, make it the strongest ally for all sensitive skin types, even the most reactive and fragile.
From this ancient rock, the water does not only draw its mineral content; here it also meets a phenomenal bacterium named Aquaphilus dolomiae, in reference to the water and to the Varved Dolomite, the rock from which the water draws its unique and invariable composition. This micro-organism is the source of the active substances that give Avène Thermal Spring Water its soothing, anti-inflammatory and restoring properties.
Today, more than 150 clinical and pharmacological studies attest to its effectiveness on skin sensitivity. It is regularly the subject of international publications for doctors, pharmacists and researchers in dermatology.
At the end of the thermal treatment, with the dermatologist, we saw a clear improvement in Milena’s skin. We are determined to continue the treatment at home until we return here next year!
The Thermal Spring Water Spray allows you to enjoy all the naturally soothing properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water at home—completely intact. It can be used in all beauty routines and at any moment of the day. To refresh your skin in the morning without dehydrating it, calm burning sensations from waxing or shaving, optimise the action of your skincare creams, set your make-up, refresh yourself after a workout or when the temperature rises... There are many uses. But each time, you’ll find this incredible gentle, soothing sensation in all the care products of Avène Dermatological Laboratories.
Thanks to its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, Avène Thermal Spring Water is recommended for skin suffering from conditions.
Used alone, as a complement to dermatological care or prescription treatments, it helps to soothe redness, the after-effects of burns and itching caused by scarring, reduces undesirable skin effects after oncological treatments and those linked to localised acne treatments, thus significantly improving the quality of patients’ daily life.

I suffer from psoriasis on my elbows, legs and lower back. Before, the patches were inflamed and I scratched them a lot. The Thermal Spring Water worked wonders for me. In three/four days, my skin was no longer the same.
