Avene

A complete skincare range formulated with Avene Thermal Spring Water & patented technologies for all types of sensitive skin.

The heritage of dermo-cosmetic brand Eau Thermale Avène dates back over 260 years to the discovery of the curative properties in thermal water. Originating as rain, the water filters through the Cévennes Mountains absorbing precious minerals and trace elements for 40 years until it reaches the mouth of the ancient Sainte-Odile spring.

The modern age of Avène began in 1975 when Pierre Fabre, the now second-largest, independent pharmaceutical company in France, acquired the spring and its surrounding land. Since then, over 300 stringent biological, pharmacological and clinical studies on the thermal water have been conducted by Pierre Fabre and independent researchers to substantiate the skin healing and soothing benefits.

Low in mineral content, rich in softening silicate and bacteriologically pure, it is ideal for the treatment of skin conditions like atopic dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.

The Avène Dermatological Hydrotherapy Center, based on these properties and the legacy of the first thermal establishment built there in 1743, welcomes up to 4,000 patients a year to its state-of-the-art medical facility to treat skin conditions in adults and children.

Launched in 1990 the Eau Thermale Avène skincare brand was created to capture these same healing benefits to soothe sensitive skins worldwide.

Avène is widely recognized as #1 in French pharmacies among dermo-cosmetic skincare brands and also the most recommended by European dermatologists.
