I feel a bit silly writing how much I love this product because I remember the time precisely (before purchasing this Water Spray) when I was walking around Priceline and couldn’t understand why someone would pay $10 for a can of water?! I used to think Avene just poured water into a bottle and sold it to us, sort of like selling air in a can. It wasn’t until recently when I went away to Batemans Bay and the weather turned on a scorcher, that I grabbed one of these Avene Eau Thermale sprays. (perhaps in desperation).
Upon reading up on the ingredients and benefits, I discovered that this water comes from a Thermal Spring- Saint Odile spring is located in a small town of Avene in France.
Thermal water is naturally mineralized water whose healing properties make it suitable for therapeutic use. It has a set of characteristics that make it propitious to health and is recognized to be of public interest by the French National Academy of Medicine.
Avene Eaut Thermale soothes and calms sensitive skin, Suitable for all degrees of sensitivity. Offers instant relief. Gentle enough for use on face and body. Suitable for infants and adults
Dermatological uses: Reduces inflammation in Eczema, Dermatitis & Psoriasis.
Avène Thermal Spring Water originates as rain. However, the 40-year journey through the Cevennes Mountain aquifer produces thermal spring water ideally suited for the care and management of sensitive skin.
It gradually becomes infused with trace elements and silicates, achieving a perfectly balanced mineral composition ideal for sensitive skin. Avène soothes, softens, and restores skin’s natural balance. Over 300 stringent biological, pharmacological and clinical studies have clearly demonstrated the skin-healing and soothing benefits of Avène Thermal Spring Water. Even beyond sensitive skin treatment, this therapy has been used for centuries at the Hydrotherapy Center to address a variety of more severe dermatological conditions such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, ichthyosis and burns.
The Avène skincare brand was created to capture the same healing benefits to soothe sensitive skins worldwide. Formulated with Avène Thermal Spring Water and bottled directly from the source of the spring, the Avène skincare brand addresses the needs of all types of sensitive skin.
I use mine on hot days, to help me cool down before bed (it’s currently sitting on my bedside table) and when I go out on a hot day. To say it short and simply, I love this thermal water and I do think it helps soothe my skin.
