Avene always intrigued us, but it wasn't until our dry skin problems left us with no other choice but to try the Avene Thermal Spring Water that we became obsessed. Our obsession quickly took over and we ran a beauty background check on Avene -- here are our findings:
Since 1990, Avene has offered a full line of skin care products dedicated to bringing the healing powers of Avene Thermal Spring Water to soothe and calm sensitive skin all over the world.
HOW IT STARTED:
The legend of Avene started in 1736 when a horse was turned loose due to severe skin disease. It found a thermal spring near Avene. After drinking from the spring and rolling in its waters, the horse's coat became shiny and its skin disease was cured.
ABOUT AVENE HYDROTHERAPY CENTER:
Each year, the Avene Hydrotherapy Center welcomes up to 4,000 patients each year referred by dermatologists worldwide to treat skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema.Official Hydrotherapy Website
HOW IT WORKS:
A 40-year journey in the Cevennes Mountain allows the water in Avene to acquire a perfectly balanced mineral composition and become gradually enriched with the trace elements and silicates. This unique composition soothes and softens skin and restores its natural balance -- more than 300 clinical studies prove its efficacy.
The thermal spring water is directly connected from the source to the Hydrotherapy and manufacturing center … so the FIRST time it sees the light is when it touches your skin!
