Vichy skincare products combine the earth’s beneficial mineral properties with ground-breaking scientific research. In 1931, Dr Haller, a medical director at the Thermal Treatment Centre in the town of Vichy, France, discovered the therapeutic virtues of Vichy Thermal Spa Water on the skin. Originating more than 2,000 years ago in the heart of Auvergne’s volcanoes, and naturally rich in 15 rare beneficial minerals and antioxidants, Vichy Thermal Spa Water has been recognized for its remarkable soothing, fortifying and regenerative properties to help transform every woman’s skin quality. Dr Haller pioneered the first line of dermo-cosmetics powered by this water. He also identified “skin types” that required tailored treatments. Today, Vichy Thermal Spa water is at the core of all Vichy skincare products.
