The Avène production plant was built in 1989 in an ecological preserve, right at the source of the Avène spring. It was gradually expanded over the years, yet has remained respectful of the surrounding environment.
In order to preserve the properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water in the treatment of sensitive, hypersensitive or allergic skin, specific measures were implemented including a constant flow and direct connection between the spring and the prodution plant.
Today, the site, which employs 230 people, is dedicated to the manufacturing and quality control of the Eau Thermale Avène Range. This important activity has boosted the economy of the entire region.
High quality assurance
This year, the production plant mixed 7000 tons of pharmaceutical grade formulas and packaged 63 million products.
The facilities are ISO 9001 and 13485 certified:
- ISO 9001 is a standard that gives requirements for an organisation’s quality management system
- ISO 13485 represents similar requirements but for medical applications
