Pioneer skin exposome science
Skin’s health has always been a quest for Vichy. Our expertise relies on the comprehensive study of the elements that affect its evolution over time. We now know that a skin condition is the combination of multiple influences: environmental, behavioral, and hormonal. And, above all: it’s their cumulative effect that can disrupt the skin’s biological functions and accelerate its ageing. In 2016, we turned these discoveries into a pioneering science: Skin Exposome Science.
This science led us to develop a multi-disciplinary approach to dermo-cosmetic, combining Dermatology with other medical fields (Endocrinology, Nutrition, Neuroscience, and Environmental medicine…). Thus, we can address the visible symptoms of certain skin dysfunctions, by prescribing products, which efficacy is tested in real life condition. Our protocols consist of powerful combinations of dermatological actives developed in hypoallergenic formulations, and health habit recommendations endorsed by our multi-disciplinary medical board. This global approach helps women to take action to counteract Exposome factors that accelerate their skin’s aging process.
Vichy is committed to gaining a better understanding on Exposome factors and their influence on skin’s health, and supports this highly important area of research at the international level through our annual Vichy Exposome Grant.
Vichy is at the forefront of medical beauty, to empower women and accompany them throughout their lives. As a pioneer in Skin Exposome Science and sponsor of our annual research grant, we continue to fund and support the development of scientific knowledge regarding skin’s health. And we are committed to propose cutting-edge dermo-cosmetic solutions to every skin, developing efficacy-driven, safe and trustworthy innovations that make women’s skin healthier looking and, in turn, positively impact their wellbeing at every stage of life.

Use Tech to promote knowledge, and data-driven innovation
Knowledge is power. We are convinced of it. Better knowledge of your skin gives you the power to act at your best to preserve your youthful capital. Thanks to technology, we make our expertise available to everyone.
In 2018, we launched SkinConsult AI, an AI-powered skin diagnosis platform based on data gathered from 15 years of research in skin ageing. Its unique algorithm was developed with dermatologists and with our Exposome medical board, to analyze clinical signs of ageing and ageing accelerating factors. This diagnosis offers women an individual skin analysis to provide information regarding their skin priorities and ageing acceleration factors, as well as a tailored prescription to reach skin’s visible beauty and vitality.
In 2020, Vichy took Skin Exposome Science one step further by launching Vichy Connect, a series of livestream talks hosted by our multi-disciplinary medical experts which focus on the latest dermatological topics such as skin Exposome factors, to help women understand how to transform the future of their skin.
