Vichy Laboratories is a French dermo-cosmetic brand, whose field of expertise extends to multiple categories, covering skincare, make up, suncare and haircare. the brand was founded in 1931 by Dr Haller, a dermatologist who discovered the skin improving properties of Vichy Volcanic Water.
Recognized for its ability to repair and fortify skin's protective barrier, this minerally-supercharged water is at the foundation of Vichy's vision of dermo-cosmetics: putting efficacy and safety at the forefront of all our formulations, and dedicating our research and innovation to improve women's skin visible healthy markers, at every stage of their life.
The concept of exposome was first defined in 2005 by professor Christopher Wild, former Director of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IRAC) as "The cumulative measure of environmental influences and associated biological responses, including exposures from the environment, diet, behavious and endogenous processes"(1,2).
When it comes to the skin, our lab research has shown that exposome is the combination of multiple influences: environmental, behavioural and hormonal. 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 science: Skin Exposome Science.
