The power of Vichy Mineralizing Water, for a stronger skin
It is in the heart of the preserved region of the Auvergne volcanoes in France, from which Vichy water springs. After a millennial path down to a depth of 4,000 meters, Vichy water charges itself with 15 minerals and mineral nutrients, essential to skin's beauty.
Vichy Mineralizing Water is the star active ingredient in Vichy skincare products. Discover the source of its power.
The pioneer in dermocosmetics
Doctor Haller discovered Vichy Mineralizing Water when he became the Director of Vichy Thermal Centre, at the beginning of the 20th century. He was the first to apply the therapeutic properties of this rare water to cosmetics, thereby creating the Vichy brand.
He was also a pioneer: thanks to his medical background, he created new skin care routines based on a skin type approach. He launched the first Serum in pharmacies, and developed beauty advice guides for women.
