The power of Vichy Mineralizing Water, born in French volcanoes, for a stronger skin.
The birth of Vichy
Revered by the Celts, and then by the Romans for its unique effects on the skin, the springs became a popular bathing site.
On her return from Vichy, the Marquise de Sevigne praised the benefits of hydrotherapy at the court of Louis XIV, and made it the great new trend.
Napoleon III recognized the source as one of public utility, and Vichy-les-Bains becomes a notable spa destination.
Vichy Laboratories was founded by Dr. Haller, a dermatologist at the Thermal Treatment Centres, and Georges Guérin, Director of Grenoville Perfumes. Their inaugural dermo-cosmetic line was called Les Secrets de Vichy.
Vichy opened a plant 4 km from the natural springs. The benefits of thermal water are captured in all VICHY products.
