Nowadays, Avène is a super-famous French pharmacy brand, but it all started with a little spring in the South of France—the Sainte-Odile spring, to be exact. People flocked to the tiny village of Avène to bathe in the spring's thermal waters, which were world-renowned for their ability to soothe skin diseases like dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis. In 1966, famed pharmaceutical executive Pierre Fabre opened the Avène Hydrotherapy Center to put the healing, beautifying powers of the springs into a bottle. Et voilà, Avène skincare was born.
Fast forward to now, and Avène has an entire line of skincare products dedicated to healing and calming sensitive skin. (Fun fact: to this day, they still put the nutrient-rich, pH-balanced Sainte-Odile spring water in all their products.) Avène's soothing formulations treat a wide variety of skin concerns from dehydration to hypersensitivity, and offer the perfect skincare solution for anyone struggling with reactive skin, irritation, burns, and redness.
