What is Avène?

What is Avène? Avène combines hydrotherapy and dermatology, making it more advanced than “just spring water.” Moreover, Avène is backed by over 300 research studies. Believe it or not, its thermal spring water falls from the sky – as rain. The water then journeys through the Cevennes Mountain aquifer in Southern France. During this journey, the thermal spring water is produced. The water is highly beneficial for sensitive skin and skin that has been damaged by sun, aging, medications, and skin conditions. It is also has mineral properties that help improve the condition of your skin. As Avène’s thermal spring water travels through underground reservoirs, it becomes infused with silicates and trace elements, creating an expertly balanced mineral composition that is “perfect” for sensitive and damaged skin.
