Vichy Slow Âge, a new approach to anti-ageing

Vichy is moving for the first time into the scientific field of the exposome, which takes into account all the factors – particularly environmental – that can have an impact on skin ageing (UV rays, pollution, fatigue, etc.). Vichy Slow Âge is an everyday preventive treatment designed to help slow the appearance of the signs of ageing. It is based on an innovative combination of baicalin, with its antioxidant properties, bifidus lysate, and Vichy spa water, together with an SPF 25 filter.
