The Production Plant

The Production Plant

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. 

Privileged location

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. 

High quality assurance

This year, the production plant mixed 7000 tons of pharmaceutical grade formulas and packaged 63 million products.

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.

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
In addition, the production plant includes a sterile facility for the manufacturing of Tolérance Extrême, XeraCalm AD and Skin Recovery D.E.F.I. Products (Device for Exclusive Formula Integrity) under the same standards used by injectable medical products. This process, unique to Avène in the Dermo-cosmetic industry, involves stringent controls at each step of production to guarantee the sterility of manufactured products.

Over 30 years of research has been conducted on the water by the Avène Dermatological Laboratories, as well as numerous pharmacological and clinical studies.
