Rooted in dermatology and hydrotherapy, Avène has more than 270 years of expertise in caring for sensitive skin and is trusted by millions worldwide. Its core ingredient, Avène Thermal Spring Water has been naturally soothing for sensitive skin since 1743 and is clinically shown by more than 150 clinical studies to soothe, soften and calm the skin.
The brand’s rich history began in Avène, a village in the south of France whose houses are built in a circle along the banks of the Orb River—a circle or spiral that was a precursor to Avène’s symbolic logo that has now toured the world. The natural habitats, biodiversity and landscapes in the area are remarkably well preserved.

Avéne Product Information
Avène Thermal Spring Water
Naturally soothing for sensitive skin since 1743. The key element in all Avène skin care products, its unique composition is clinically shown by more than 150 studies to calm inflammation, itching, redness and irritation while soothing and softening the skin.
Advanced Daily Sun Care
A complete range of high-protection sun care offering maximum sun protection that’s gentle enough for the most sensitive skin. Enhanced with a powerful antioxidant and soothing Avène Thermal Spring Water for long-lasting hydration. In two formulas: MINERAL, made with 100% minerals for hypersensitive and post-procedure skin, and CLASSIC, non-irritating chemical formulas for normal and sensitive skin.
To give hypersensitive skin the safety it needs, Avène has created the concept of Sterile cosmetics—a unique process resulting in 100% sterile formulas and production. Products are made from minimal ingredients for maximum tolerance and enriched with patented Parcerine® to soothe irritation and redness and restore the skin’s barrier.
Originally created in 150 AD by a Roman physician, Cold Cream has long been known for its moisturizing properties. Avène’s rich and moisturizing Cold Cream formula combines the purest ingredients, including Thermal Spring Water, pure white beeswax and pharmaceutical-grade paraffin oil to maintain the skin’s suppleness, heal abrasions and soothe the drying effects of environmental aggressors.
Dehydrated skin lacks water and appears dull, with uneven texture and fine, dry surface lines. Avène Hydrance Optimale is formulated to help prevent water evaporation from the skin, revealing a smoother and more luminous complexion.
Oily, blemish-prone skin is characterized by shine, excess sebum, enlarged pores and uneven skin texture. The Cleanance regimen gently purifies skin and removes excess sebum without drying or stripping the skin. Recommended by dermatologists to be used in conjunction with acne medications and treatments.
