French skin care brand Avène has been dedicated to healing skin for more than two and a half centuries. The Avéne hydrotherapy center opened in 1743 in a picturesque village in rural France, and thousands of people are still referred there every year by their dermatologists for treatment. Rain water journeys for 40 years through the Cevennes Mountain to produce Avène Thermal Spring Water. Its unique composition is clinically proven to soothe, soften, and balance with an infusion of trace elements and silicates. Avène skin care captures the healing benefits of the spring water especially suited for people with sensitive skin, irritation, burns, and redness.
