Avène has over 270 years of expertise in caring for sensitive skin and is trusted by millions worldwide. At the heart of the brand is Avène Thermal Spring Water, a natural soothing source clinically shown by over 150 studies to soothe, soften and calm the skin.


Originating as pure rain mixed with sea-spray rich in mineral salts, Avène Thermal Spring Water makes its 50-year journey through the Cévennes Mountains in Avène, France.

It gradually becomes infused with trace elements and silicates, and comes in contact with an ancient microorganism Aqua. Dolomiae, which was first identified by Avène in 2001.

This remarkable biological property combined with the well-known mineral properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water ensures gentleness and tolerance, creating a unique double signature that does not exist anywhere else in the world.

Over 150 stringent biological, pharmacological and clinical studies have clearly demonstrated the soothing, softening and calming benefits of Avène Thermal Spring Water.

A Revolution for Hypersensitive Skin

Without preservatives, it is usually impossible to protect most formulas (in aqueous form) from outside bacteria once the tube has been opened.

For the first time, a new revolutionary technical process has solved the problem of preserving sterile formulas in large tubes, without using preservatives, and protecting them from outside contamination.

Each time it is used, the closing system allows the product to be expressed but prevents bacteria in particular from entering the tube. Avène Dermatological Laboratories have reinvented dermo-cosmetics and introduced to the world the concept of sterile cosmetics with its perfectly air-tight, D.E.F.I packaging. D.E.F.I (Device for Exclusive Formula Integrity) – developed and patented by Pierre Fabre. The guarantee of a pure, effective product without preservatives or paraben is thus obtained by this unique association of a “Sterile formula and D.E.F.I.”.
