Protecting Our Resources
Avène Thermal Spring emerges within a protected site in the Haut-Languedoc Regional Park in the South of France. The untouched biodiversity and low rate of human activities ensure the Water remains untouched from modern-day technology, pollution and contamination that could distrupt the composition.
Avène Thermal Spring Water
Rain water filters down and sets off on a 50-year journey in the deepest and oldest layers, where it becomes infused with trace elements, silicates and comes into contact with a unique microflora: Aqua. Dolomiae. Avène Thermal Spring Water emerges from the Sainte-Odile Spring, its composition and flow never changing.
Avène Thermal Spring Water has been soothing sensitive skin since the late 18th century, when its curative properties were originally discovered.
