More than 2000 years serving skin's health and beauty
There was once upon a time a beneficial and therapeutic spring of volcanic origins. Initially respectfully venerated by the Celts, this spring was quickly exploited by the Romans for thermal purposes. Recognizing the water's soothing and anti-redness properties, they bathed in it and consecrated it to Venus, Goddess of Beauty, according to the benefits it gives to the skin.
The town of Vichy, became a thermal city in the first century, reached its height in the mid-eighteenth century. Embodying the symbol of French refinement, it has emerged as the jewel of water cities and hosts many historical figures including the Marquise de Sevigne (who talk up many a time the virtues of the Water in its letters), Napoleon III, the Duchess of Angouleme (niece of Louis XVIII) as well as Coco Chanel who wa donor of water in her youth.
At the beginning of Vichy brand
In 1931, the searing healing of an open wound at the foot, accelerated by the application of Vichy Thermal Spa Water, was the opportunity in which two strange-so-far men met: Georges Guerin, the injured, a perfume industrial, and Dr. Haller, director of the Vichy thermal etsablishment. Together, they decided to establish the Vichy Dermatological Hygiene Company. At the crossroads of science and nature, this precursor establishment makes of this Thermal Spa Water, the key ingredient of each formula, and health as the unconditional source of beauty.
Rich in minerals essential for the skin's health
The unique mineral composition of Vichy Thermal Spa Water is the result of numerous geological interactions induced by its underground trek. Penetrating into granite rocks, rain water sink in the volcanoes depths. There, the temperature is so high that water, put under pressure, is propelled through the rocks from which it uproot minerals such as iron, potassium, calcium, manganese, silicium, copper... many rare minerals confering to the Vichy Thermal Spa Water extraordinary virtues and makes it one of the most mineralized waters in France.
