The Vichy story opens in the Auvergne region of central France. Since the brand's birth in 1931, its mission has remained the same: help women to take daily, effective care of their skin, no matter their age or skin type, while protecting the environment and promoting sustainability.
We make sensitive skin our daily challenge, not yours.
At Vichy, our products are developed for and tested on sensitive skin. To develop effective formulas, teams of experts work to screen ingredients that have high tolerance on even sensitive skin types.
At Vichy, we’re hypoallergenic or nothing.
As a French pharmacy brand, a Vichy skincare product is hypoallergenic. More than 2000 women each year test the tolerance of our products on their skin. And during these tests if a single reaction occurs, we return to the formulation stage. Since Vichy was created to meet a multitude of skin needs, we’re naturally committed to your skin’s tolerance and to minimizing potential allergy risk for every ingredient and therefore for the final formula.
