The other week, I had the pleasure of being invited to try the latest release from the noted French beauty brand VICHY. For over 80 years, the brand has been producing skin care items utilizing thermal water from the Vichy region of France. Rich with healing and nourishing minerals and antioxidants, the thermal water utilized by VICHY soothes sensitivity, accelerates the healing of skin wounds, and generally improves the skins quality. By combining their continued research and development of ingredients and products with the heritage of the brand, VICHY has continued to distinguish itself in the realm of skincare and beauty.
Their latest launch, VICHY 89, combines the famed Vichy Thermal Spa Water with only 11 other ingredients including hyaluronic acid to strengthen skin and protect it against daily aggressors like pollution, stress, fatigue and more. Free from parabens, fragrances, alcohol, oil, or silicon, VICHY 89 is gentle yet highly effective for protecting and nourishing the skin. It’s also hypoallergenic and can be applied on your lips and under the eyes as well thanks to its clean and sensitive skin friendly formulation.

WHY DO WE CALL IT MINERALIZING THERMAL WATER?
Vichy Water is called thermal thanks to its great diversity in minerals, acquired during its millennia-long journey through crystalline bedrocks. It is then loaded with 5.2 grams per litre of minerals, and has the highest diversity of minerals, as well as the highest richness of trace elements of the French thermal waters.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN BENEFITS OF MINERALS FOR SKIN?
More than 16 scienti c studies allowed us to precisely identify Vichy Mineralizing Thermal water’s properties and to demonstrate its ability to strengthen skin’s natural defences. It stimulates antioxidant defences, even when skin is aggressed by UVA, rebalances skin’s pH and reinforces its integrity, speci cally by stimulating skin regeneration and improving its barrier function.
Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water thus renders skin more resistant to urban and environmental aggressors.
WHAT GUARANTEES ITS COMPATIBILITY WITH SKIN AS WELL AS PERFECT TOLERANCE?
Sourced on unspoiled land protected from pollution since 1874, Vichy Water is 100% pure and natural. From its collection to its formulation within our products just 4 km from the springs, the water is rigorously tested to ensure its safety and purity. It is weighed and integrated into the last step of the manufacturing process, during which only fresh water, with double sterilizing ltration, is incorporated. It has a 4-year traceability period.
Our tolerance and e cacy tests have been run on all skin types – including sensitive skin – demonstrating its optimal tolerance and its soothing effect on skin.
