Quench your skin hydration with Uriage Eau Thermale

If you were a true Francophile or Parisian at heart, you would have noticed the increasing trend behind beauty mists and thermal water sprays.  

You would have certainly heard stories about French dermatologists sending people to Thermal “spa” to treat a skin issue (yes we are talking fully funded by the French Medicare), you would have seen the famous bottles in Pharmacies, spotted them behind the scenes during fashion week or even seen them on the beach ready to refresh the skin of the whole family.

So what is the craze about?

We got the opportunity to deep dive into Uriage, a thermal-water based dermocosmetics brand whose thermal center saw the visit of celebrities like Coco Chanel to treat and soothe skin issues thanks to the purity and unique mineral composition of its water.

What is so special about Uriage water?

A thousand years old story

Did you know that Uriage water was discovered 2000 years ago when the Romans stopped on their journey over the Alps where they found a spring in the foothills of the Belledonne Mountains. The story tells that they were amazed by the healing properties of this water, healing grazes and irritated skin so they decided to build Roman baths there. On the exact same location, it eventually became the first thermal center of Uriage.

A unique water in its composition

Pure and exceptionally enriched by nature, Uriage water is sourced in the French Alps, at an altitude of 1600m, and a temperature of 27ºC. The water is naturally filtered by mother nature and rich in trace minerals and salts (calcium, magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, Iron, etc.), making it one of the most balanced thermal water and offering soothing, moisturizing and protective benefits for the skin. 

A water truly recognised in dermatology

Patients with skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis come from all around the world to seek treatment at the Uriage Thermal Centre, with treatments ranging from mini thermal cures to post-cancer thermal treatments and ENT care. 

A water suitable for everyday needs

The specificity of Uriage water is that it is isotonic (water that is near identical to skin’s water) which offer endless benefits: it hydrates the skin, seals make-up, refreshes the skin after exercise, soothes skin irritations after shaving, post cosmetic procedure or nappy rashes, and the list goes on!
