Avène Thermal Spring Water, originating as rain, follows a 50-year journey through the Cevennes Mountain aquifer before emerging clean and pure in the small French village of Avène, where it is bottled directly from the source. The unique soothing and anti-irritating properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water has been showcased by the various therapies conducted at the Avène Hydrotherapy Center to help symptoms associated with atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, burns and more. The efficacy and benefits of Avène Thermal Spring Water have further been demonstrated by over 150 clinical fundamental studies and 50 publications. Various uses include soothing redness, irritation, itching, burns (including erythema from radiation therapy), and eye dermatitis; calming and soothing skin post-hair-removal or after dermatological procedures; revitalising skin during travel or exercise; setting makeup; and much more. Ideal for babies, children and adults with dry and sensitive skins or atopic eczema.
Water set apart by its mineral wealth: Avène Thermal Spring Water’s properties come from its unique and original composition. With a low mineral content and neutral pH, it is ion balanced with bicarbonate, calcium and magnesium. It also contains a large diversity of skin-enhancing trace elements. Avène Thermal Spring Water is naturally beneficial to sensitive skin (even the most irritated).
Water set apart by its biological wealth: Guided by their curiosity and scientific precision, the Pierre Fabre Laboratories rolled out a large-scale research programme which ultimately revealed another side to the Avène Thermal Spring Water heritage – its biological wealth. By analysing the composition of Avène Thermal Spring Water using extremely precise investigation technologies, they discovered the active molecules in the water. Behind these molecules is a fascinating and unique microflora specific to Avène Thermal Spring Water, which has never been spoken about until now and can only survive in the very deep, pure and crystalline waters of Avène. Dubbed Aqua.Dolomiae, this microflora produces active substances, partly accounting for the soothing, anti-irritant properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water.
Dr Webster’s Recommendation: The mineral heritage of this thermal spring water is the unique and unchanging composition of minerals and trace elements which help to soften skin, improve suppleness, to calm, and build tolerance in the skin and restore the skin barrier. The low mineral content hydrates and has a non-drying effect on the skin. The biological heritage of the ancestral microflora, Aqua.Dolomiae, is specific to this thermal spring water and is very soothing and calming to the skin for a variety of skin conditions. This is truly a multi-tasking wonder of nature and is found in all Avène products.
