Dermo-Cosmetic, Cosmeceutical and suitable for sensitive skin are catch phrases that are used liberally by many Cosmetic companies. For a product that truly combines pharmaceutical ethics with cosmetic appeal, has its basis in dermatology treatments, is recommended by health professionals and is designed specifically for the needs of sensitive, intolerant and allergy prone skin.
In 1736, a great discovery was made in Southern France in the small village of Avène, where the soothing and anti-irritating properties of Avène thermal spring water were discovered. For decades the water was used to treat skin problems and in 1874, France declared the Avène thermal spring water to be of public benefit in various skin conditions.
Avènes vocation is today justified by over 250 years of medical hydrotherapy. Heart of the brand, the Avène Hydrotherapy Centre is entirely dedicated to dermatology. The therapeutic properties of Avène thermal spring water has been used at the Hydrotherapy Centre to address a variety of dermatological conditions such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema and burns.
With a pH close to neutral, Avène thermal spring water is rich in silica, has a low mineral content, is bacteriologically pure and helps to restore the skins natural balance. The unique and perfectly stable composition of Avène thermal spring water makes it ideal for sensitive, intolerant and allergy prone skin. The soothing and anti-irritating properties of this water have been consistently proven by a vast programme of clinical trials, many of which have been published in international medical and scientific journals
Avène thermal spring water is instantly collected and routed, under "high protection", towards the skin care establishment and the high-tech sterilized factory where the Avène dermatological products are produced.
Avène Dermatological Laboratories have developed a line of dermo-cosmetic products that are all formulated with Avène thermal spring water and available for use at home.
