As a scientist, I’ve always considered skin as a vital organ and a barometer of our health that we need to understand and take care of. Skin is our first line of defense and it’s essential for me to preserve our skin’s health capital over time. At Vichy, we believe that health is vital. And that it starts with the skin. The famous brand tagline “La santé passe aussi par la peau" is the foundation of everything we do. Vichy’s head is connected to science, connected to the medical community. We are the N3 brand recommended by dermatologists worldwide. Dermatologists endorse our anti-ageing and haircare expertise.
Vichy’s heart is connected to people, to their lives, to their skin. It empowers all women and men, of all ages and phototypes to have a positive impact on their skin and scalp health, at every stage of their life.

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.
