A Discovery Like No Other
It’s as if this story came out of a fable, Avène has its roots traced back from when a horse, particularly Marquis de Rocozel’s horse suffered from stubborn pruritus. After a few dips of the horse in the Orb River, his condition somehow improved, making people discover the anti-irritating and soothing properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water.
By 1743, a Hydrotherapy Centre was built nearby the Sainte-Odile spring that was meant for people with skin concerns and dermatological conditions. Psoriasis, burns, atopic dermatitis, and eczema were addressed through the use of Avène Thermal Spring Water and its therapeutic properties.
