Our Mission

Reinforcing Avène’s position as a brand so deeply committed to sensitive and problem skin, the annual #AveneHope campaign showcases powerful and inspiring stories.

The force at which skin conditions impact quality of life is tremendous and sometimes it can seem like there is no end in sight. But for those who have lost their spirit to their skin condition, there is hope yet.

The Avène Hydrotherapy Center, a facility dedicated to dermatology, provides care to over 3,000 skin-sufferers each year. All across the globe, dermatologists refer patients for a three-week-long treatment to begin a soothing journey towards physical and emotional empowerment. These patients venture from around the world to Avène to find one thing: HOPE

Here are some of their stories.

About Avène Thermal Spring Water

The Avène Thermal Spring Water is a rare and precious gift from nature. The story beings in Avène, where nearly 65,000 acres of nature is preserved and protected in the Haut-Languedoc region. This naturally-formed basin collects every raindrop that falls - from there it begins a 50-year journey travelling through 1,500 meters of dolomite rocks where it becomes infused with minerals and enriched with a unique microflora: Aqua. Dolomiae. The result is a water with a perfectly balanced mineral and biological composition, highlighted by over 150 clinical studies.
