Discover the history of its products, from the discovery of the spring to the most advanced technical developments.
Uriage is an exceptional brand. This is its universe.

As early as Antiquity, the Romans discovered the benefits of Uriage Thermal Water.

After the invasion of Gaul, the Romans stopped on their journey over the Alps and found a spring in the foothills of the Belledonne mountains. They realized that this water had healing properties and decided to build the first thermal center there.

Relics discovered close to the spring are evidence of this centuries-old thermal tradition.

Creation of a Roman province, the Alps Pennines.

The Thermal Center has been helping to treat patients affected with skin diseases for almost 2 centuries.

Long before a Thermal Center was created, the inhabitants enjoyed the benefits of this miraculous spring.

From 1823, the Marquise de Gautheron, owner of the Uriage château, had the first thermal center built on her land.

Subsequently, the Academy of Medicine recognized the unique properties of Uriage Thermal Water after observing the benefits obtained following a treatment program and conducting scientific studies.

In the 1920s, Uriage becomes a fashionable listed thermal spa town like the first center at Dauphiné. Numerous celebrities come to stay at Uriage including Edmond Rostand, Coco Chanel and even Colette.
