Dedicated to dermatology, Avène products promote the therapeutic properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water in the soothing of conditions such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and extreme dryness.
Since 1743, when the first Hydrotherapy Centre was built near the Sainte-Odile spring, Avène has been dedicated to dermatology. The Avène skincare range was launched in 1990 in order to harness these age-old techniques and make them available to those who would benefit from their healing benefits.
Recommended by GPs, dermatologists, pharmacists and skin experts, Avène is a truly contemporary skin care product with years of research, heritage and results to back up its claims. The Avène Spring Water plays a fundamental role in every product, uniquely composed to be soothing and anti-irritating to users so that it may treat even the most sensitive and intolerant of skin.
Avène's famous Hydrotherapy centre is open to 4,000 patients a year for a 21-day personalised treatment under the supervision of dermatologists. Alongside drinking the Thermal Spring Water, patients bath and shower, have water compresses, underwater massages, treat general and localised pulverisations, have body wrappings and undergo Hydroheliotherapy with the wonder water, all designed to sooth and treat troublesome skin.
Internationally renowned, over 300 stringent biological, pharmacological and clinical studies on Avène Thermal Spring Water have been conducted by the company and independent researchers to substantiate the skin soothing and anti-irritating benefits. Pierre Fabre research has ensured that the products are maintained by international experts in the field of dermo-cosmetics, and that they contain innovative active ingredients that are rigorously selected. In order to preserve the therapeutic properties of Avène thermal Spring Water, the production centre is directly connected to the source, and sample and microbiological tests are carried out daily.
