Avène is a French skin care brand that has a long history. The thermal waters of region that bears the same name welcomed people with various skin conditions such as dermatitis and eczema to bathe in its water as far back as the 18th century. Starting its journey high up in the Cevennes Mountains and moving through some of the oldest dolomite rocks, the water interacts and becomes infused with various minerals and flora, where it then emerges from the Sainte-Odile Spring.
Many of Avène products are developed in partnership with the Avène Water Research Centre. It is here the spring water is studied and where key ingredients are identified in this unique water that find its way into the moisturizers such as Cicalfate+ restorative protective cream which is infused with a postbiotic restorative ingredient which helps protect the skin and maintain hydration for optimal skin restoration which is safe to use not only for adult but for infants and children too. Cleansers such as the XeraCalm A.D Ultra-Rich Cleansing Bar or Antirougers clean soothing cleansing lotion contain I-Modula and Avène thermal spring water which will help to soften soothe and calm the skin. The uses of the thermal spring water don’t just stop at cleansers and moisturizers, it can also be found as main ingredient in Avène sun protection cream like the Solaire uv mineral multi-defense sunscreen which also contains bisabolol allantoin which soothes and calms skin.
