Aidan's Story

Aidan was born with hypersensitive skin. He has Atopic dermatitis, a severe form of eczema which has been unbearable for him since day one.

It's also upsetting for his parents, brothers and sisters who feel helpless as they see him suffer.

But today, Aidan is living life (almost) like any other child.

We want to share this incredible story, the story of the encounter between a child, his family and Avène Thermal Spring Water.

The Avène Hydrotherapy Centre

Located close to the spring, the Avène Hydrotherapy Centre welcomes thousands of people every year, providing care for their sensitive and irritated skin. Discover their testimonials below.

Personalised skin care

Each patient benefits from a personalised skin care program created by a doctor. Treatment lasts for three weeks, and patients reap the full benefits of the expertise and experience of the teams at the Centre.

Soothing relief for patients

Adults, children and even babies (the establishment has equipment specially designed for babies), all the Hydrotherapy patients agree: Avène Thermal Spring Water offers exceptional soothing results.

A unique water

Avène Thermal Spring Water is unique. It acquires its soothing properties after traveling for more than 50 years through sedimentary rocks. Collected at the spring and preserved intact, it offers patients all its benefits and is the central ingredient in all of the brand's skin care products.

The light had gone from our daughter's eyes. She was like a ghost, she had given up hope but when the treatment at Avène started working, it was like someone had switched on a torch. We had got our daughter back.

People looked at her as if she was abnormal. Avène has given Alisha a new lease of life. When she meets new people, she doesn’t have to worry about what they think of her skin.

I am surrounded by this beautiful landscape which is so healing. I thought it was just going to be the treatment but all of this works together so it’s fantastic.

Now her skin is under control. Mia takes care of things herself with daily applications of soothing Avène products […] which are tucked into her school bag alongside her lunch and her text books.

I would want to be a scientist to help deal with eczema and maybe a singer.

Skin is increasingly sensitive

The condition of our skin is a reflection of our subconscious and reveals a lot about us. The immediate environment and modern lifestyles also have a real impact on our skin, which is increasingly sensitive nowadays.

The History of Avène Thermal Spring Water

The Eau Thermale Avène brand was created in 1990 and since then, the success of its products has grown across the entire world and in more than 100 countries. However, its origins lie in a small village called Avène in the South-West of France. And although today the brand is renowned worldwide, it is part of an even longer history which dates back almost four centuries.  And it is this history that we are going to show you in pictures.
