The City of Vichy, France. A Leading European Center for Medical Treatments with Thermal Spa Water.Located in a volcanic region of Central France, the city of Vichy [pronounced vee-shee] has been renowned since Roman times as a leading site of thermalism. " Spa " comes from a latin expression standing for Sanitas Per Aqua (health through water).
Number 1 In Europe for its number of Thermal Spa Water spring. With no less than 15 Thermal Spa Water springs, the city of Vichy has developed an expertise in the treatment of varied disorders through the use of Thermal Water. Since the 19th century, Vichy Thermal waters have received the official recognition of the French Academy of Medicine for their therapeutic properties. Each year the city of Vichy hosts over 12,000 patients coming from all over Europe in its ultra-modern facilities.
It was during a stay in Vichy in 1931 to treat his liver complaint that Georges Guerin, a cosmetologist, discovered the dermatological virtues of Vichy Thermal Spa Water, quite by chance After an inopportune fall, the Thermal centerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s own doctor, Doctor Haller, advised him to have some ablutions. Georges Guerin was struck by the speed with which he healed and decided to incorporate this water in a line of cosmetic skin care products: Vichy was born and soon its products would become famous, e.g. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Secrets of VichyÃ¢â‚¬Â. These products were both performant and original: for the first time, the products were adapted according to women's skin type (oily, dry etc.). This division turned out to be highly relevant and today has been taken on board by all major brands in this sector. Dermatological ingredients, Thermal Spa Water, security protocols stemming from the pharmaceutical industry: all these precepts which make up dermocosmetics today were laid down at this time. The Vichy Mission- Health is Vital. Start With Your Skin Created in 1931 in France by a skin physician, Vichy Laboratoires offers unique allergy-tested skincare products combining Vichy Thermal Spa Water with the latest innovations stemming from dermatological research.
