For the little Story…

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


As it was founded more than 20 years ago, the family business is the result of the meeting between Jean-Jacques Lascombes trained pharmacist and a dentist located in the Gers that made him discover the benefits of Castéra-Verduzan Thermal Spring water. 

After that, the will of making this water available for all thanks to its exceptional and recognized virtues for the mouth has daily guided Jean-Jacques Lascombes in the management of this booming small business. Now, it is his son Roland that has taken the lead of the company. 

Today, the laboratory is still rising in France and at the international scale thanks to the meticulous work conducted by the employees, its industrial investments and to its passionate partners that are daily involved.
