Our little story

The BUCCOTHERM® range was born thanks to the combination of oral and thermal


Founded nearly 20 years ago, the family business is the fruit of the meeting between Jean-Jacques Lascombes, a pharmacist by training, and a dental surgeon from the Gers who will make him discover the benefits of the Thermal Spring water of Castéra-Verduzan.

After that, the will to make this Water, with its exceptional and recognized virtues, available to all, will guide Jean-Jacques Lascombes every day in the management of this growing SME, and now his son Roland, who has since taken over the reins of the company.

Today, the laboratory continues its ascent in France and internationally thanks to the rigorous work of its teams, its industrial investments and its passionate and involved partners on a daily basis.
