Welcome to Vichy, the French brand that caters to even the most sensitive of skin.
This leading French brand has a rich history that allows them to stand out amongst other skincare companies. Born in Auvergne – typically known as a volcanic region – the company utilises the rich mineral resources and packs them into their products. To this day, Vichy's line of products continue to be produced in this area – they've even stuck to using the same factory which is conveniently less than three miles away from the natural springs they use.
Pioneering medic Dr Prosper Haller founded Vichy in 1931 and has been developing iconic products ever since. Vichy are dedicated to providing an accessible skincare range that caters to all skin, but in particular sensitive skin types. It is because of this commitment that Vichy have pathed the way in cosmetic and skincare innovation for 80 years and counting.
Their 80 years of skilled practise has led them to become experts when dealing with sensitive skin. Their celebrated secret ingredient – naturally occurring Mineralizing Water – is rich in 15 rare minerals and benefits all skin types in a variety of ways. Calcium, manganese and potassium are a few names amongst these minerals that aid your skin to look and feel its best.
