Dr. Prosper Haller and the story of Vichy’s origins
When it comes to innovative products tailored for your skin’s unique needs, Vichy’s got history - a LOT of history.
Take a look at the video below for the full story of how the brand’s founder, Dr. Prosper Haller, revolutionized the world of skincare - and how his ideas continue to influence the cosmetics industry today.
Launched in 1931, the Vichy brand was born as a result of founder Dr. Prosper Haller’s longstanding innovative approach to beauty and health. One of the first among his peers to take a holistic approach to skincare, the pioneering Dr. Haller made history after discovering the healing properties of Vichy Thermal Mineralizing Water when applied to his patients’ scars.
This discovery, which resulted in the creation of the Vichy Dermatological Hygiene Company, was the beginning of an international revolution within the beauty and cosmetics industry, with Dr. Haller becoming the first to offer customers multiple skincare products tailored to different skin types. All this after an illustrious career treating thousands of patients as resident doctor at the Vichy Thermal Center, where he led the way in combining water-based therapies, including massage and thermal baths, with the cutting-edge medical techniques of the day.
Dr. Haller’s innovative spirit and pioneering approach to beauty and skincare continue to drive Vichy today. What’s more, the brand he created remains as committed as ever to bringing the benefits of Vichy’s Thermal Mineralizing Water to women across the globe. Talk about a legacy to be proud of!
