Believe it or not, the story of the Avene skin care brand began in 1736, not with a doctor or an herbalist, but with a sick horse. After being released into the French countryside because of a disfiguring skin condition, the horse returned to its owner healed from rolling in nearby thermal spring water. By the turn of the century, a clinic had been established to treat skin conditions with the water, and now, a world-renowned hydrotherapy center continues this tradition by offering clinical treatments and producing a line of skin care products made with the local thermal spring water.
More than 300 clinical studies have verified the dermatological benefits of this French thermal spring water. Enriched with the nutrient-rich water and a host of natural supportive ingredients, the Avene skin care range features formulas for a wide variety of skin concerns, including dehydration, hypersensitivity and excessive oil production. Incredibly gentle, but maximally effective, the products produce results that can be easily seen and felt. Treat your skin to a dose of thermal spring water by bringing home Avene products.
We strongly suggest that you visit a medical skin care professional for a complete skin diagnosis before purchasing Avene products.

Avene Skin Care
Refresh tired skin. When your skin needs a pick-me-up, turn to Avene. Just a splash of Avene Thermal Spring Water offers a healthy dose of soothing antioxidants and restorative elements — including calcium and magnesium — that refresh and illuminate tired skin. Use as part of your daily skin care routine or in combination with a dermatological treatment. Quench thirsty skin with Avene Cold Cream Body Lotion, an oil-free formula that locks in hydration by restoring and sealing skin’s natural moisture barrier. For dry lips, use Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm, an ultra-emollient lip protectant that shields against the daily elements that cause lips to become chapped, flaky and cracked.
Restore ageless beauty. It’s a fact of life that lines and wrinkles will emerge as we age, but Avène deeply understands this aging process. Using the latest anti-aging science, Avène has created patented technologies — including Retinaldehyde, Pre-tocopheryl and Hyaluronic Acid Fragments — that are proven to reduce the signs of aging. To start, Avene Eluage Firming Gel is a must in any anti-aging arsenal. Formulated with a blend of Retinaldehyde and Hyaluronic Acid Fragments, this gel is designed for the deep contours around the eyes, nose and cheeks. For extra attention around the eyes, Avene Ystheal Eye Contour Care, which features Retinaldehyde and Pre-tocopheryl, softens fine lines and wrinkles and illuminates and brightens the entire eye area.
Reclaim clear skin. When it comes to acne, Avene provides smart solutions to treat and prevent breakouts.

To target problem areas, Avene Cleanance Acne Spot Treatment is a lightweight gel suitable for all skin types. This gentle formula effectively battles blemishes and contains Avène’s signature Thermal Spring Water to calm and soften the skin. A night-time treatment, Avene Cleanance K Oil-Control Lotion is an anti-acne cream that unclogs pores as you sleep to prevent blackheads and blemishes from forming in the first place.
