The Avène production plant was built in 1989 in an ecological preserve, right at the source, on 2000 m2. It was gradually expanded (1992, 1998, 2003 and 2010). Today, it covers 17000 m2 with still the same concern of respect for the environment.
In order to preserve the therapeutic properties of Avène Thermal Spring Water in the treatment of sensitive, hypersensitive or allergic skin, specific measures were implemented:
- Direct connection between the spring and the production plant
- Constant flow
High quality assurance
This year, the production plant, a pharmaceutical facility, mixed 7000 tons of formulas and packaged 63 million products at his high-tech facilities.
The facilities are ISO 9001 and 13485 certified.
- ISO 9001 is a standard that gives requirements for an organization’s quality management system
- ISO 13485 represents similar requirements but for medical applications (Avène Thermal Spring Water gel).
This process, unique in the word for the Dermo-cosmetic industry, involves stringent controls at each step of production to guarantee the sterility of manufactured products.
