Avène Thermal Spring Water
Avène Thermal Spring Water, a natural key ingredient.
Avène Thermal Spring Water begins its journey when it falls as rain over the Cevennes Mountains, filtering down through the soil and rocks for over 40 years before bubbling up, pure and clear, to the surface at the Sainte-Odile spring. We direct the water straight from the source to the production plant where the Eau Thermale Avène products are manufactured.
Avène Thermal Spring Water is at the heart of all our products
Together with the water, Avène Dermatological Laboratories also design formulas and develop innovative techniques to soothe the most sensitive skin. Some of our recent advancements include:
- Low mineral composition 266 mg/l.
- Calcium/Magnesium bicarbonate profile (ratio Ca/Mg = 2).
- Rich in silica: 10.6 mg/l.
- Very rich in trace elements.
- Neutral pH: 7.5.
2010: The D.E.F.I. patent. This patent rewards a new closure system for tubes and guarantees total protection. The product remains sterile during the entire time it is used without any preservatives and in any size tube.
2014: Diolenyl, a patented active prodrug designed to target p.acnes bacteria without affecting the skin's natural bacterial makeup.
Over 30 years of research has been conducted on the water by the Avène Dermatological Laboratories, as well as numerous pharmacological and clinical studies.
