Springs of Sainte-Odile
Avène Thermal Spring Water is bacteriologically pure, has a low mineral content, and has a large variety of anions, cations, and trace elements. The 2 to 1 Calcium/Magnesium ratio makes it exceptional among dermatological thermal spring waters and may explain its skin-healing promoting action during the course of treatment at Avène.
A comparative, controlled, double-blind, study of 3 thermal spring waters with different mineral contents (266mg/L, 4,500 mg/L and 11,000 mg/L) shows that Avène Thermal Spring Water is softer than other waters with a higher mineral content2.
