|Eau Thermal Avene||
Eau Thermal Avene is a brand that specializes in skin care treatments for sensitive skin, oily skin, wound care, anti-aging, dry skin, intolerant skin, and sun care. This French company dates all the way back to 1736, and is based on a horse drinking water from a particular spring, which in turn cured its skin disease. At this point, Eau Thermal Avene offers both a professional line of treatments for physicians, as well as a retail line of skin care products, which appear to be available online, but no prices are posted.
The retail line of Eau Thermal Avene products are separated into 11 different sections. These are Sun Care, Cold Cream, Ystheal, Eluage, Cleanance, Hydrance, Cicalfate, Anti-Redness, Intolerant Care, Thermal Spring Water, and Essentials. Under the Essentials category, you will see treatments like the Rich Compensating Cream. This product is described as non-greasy, but very rich to hydrate the facial skin. It provides anti-oxidant protection and is geared toward dry to very dry skin types. The key ingredients found in this product are Avene Thermal Spring Water, Ceramides, Fatty Acids, and Plant Sterols. Like many other Eau Thermal Avene treatments the rich Compensating Cream is paraben-free, non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic.
Eau Thermal Avene is a full line of skin care products that are mostly geared toward women. They are claimed to suit any condition from sensitive skin, to dry complexions, to wrinkles, to intolerant skin, to excessive oil, to redness and irritation. The primary touted ingredient found in all Eau Thermal Avene products is Avene Thermal Spring Water, which is essentially supposed to heal and protect the skin. There are simple directions for using each topical treatment posted on the official website. Furthermore, there are clinical results provided on the website to give you an idea of how well these products worked in studies that were conducted. Full ingredient lists are not available at this time, which can sometimes be an issue for those with allergies.

The Bottom Line
In the end, the Eau Thermal Avene line of skin care treatments certainly has some unique and interesting history to it. There is no disputing that. The idea of a miracle spring that offers water to heal is pretty enticing to say the least. However, this does not change the fact that prices for Eau Thermal Avene treatments are left off of the website, and no free trial samples are provided for new customers to test out. This may affect some individuals and their choice to purchase.
