Eau Thermal Avène story began in 1736, in Avène, a small village located in the south of France where the properties of the Thermal water were discovered. The story of this cure, considered at the time to be miraculous, spread rapidly. Doctors in the surrounding regions advised their patients to use warm Avène thermal spring water for their skin disorders in the "thermal establishment founded in 1743".
