at the heart of a brand

A naturally soothing source for sensitive skin since 1743.


A gift from nature

A Natural Key Ingredient

Rain water filters down, embarking on a 50-year journey through the Cévennes Mountains moving through earth's deepest and oldest of dolomite rocks, 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, where its composition and flow of 70,000 liters per hour never changes.

It's key composition and exceptional properties, are part of a long tradition that dates back to the 18th century.

About the Source

Springs of Sainte-Odile

The Sainte-Odile Spring lies in the Haute-Landuedoc Regional Park in the South of France, preserved by 12 square miles of natural biodiversity and landscape. Over the vast, protected area, called the impluvium, the water naturally collects and starts its journey - emerging 50 years later, pure and natural from the Spring.
