Behind the Brand: Avène
Avène has over 275 years of expertise in caring for sensitive skin and is recommended by dermatologists worldwide. At the heart of every formula, is clinically proven Avène Thermal Spring Water to soothe, soften and calm the skin.
Originating as pure rain mixed with sea-spray rich in mineral salts, Avène Thermal Spring Water makes its 50-year journey through the Cévennes Mountains in Avène, France. During this journey, the water filters through the dolomites, mineral-laden porous rocks, where it comes into contact with an ancient microorganism, named Aquaphilus Dolomiae*, that produces key substances which are in part responsible for making Avène Thermal Spring Water so effective. This remarkable biological property, combined with the well-known mineral properties, is the double signature of Avène Thermal Spring Water.
