Claiming to be the number one skin care line in European pharmacies, Vichy Laboratories offers a range of products such as face care, makeup, body care, and sun protection products. Vichy Laboratories products are said to be infused with an ingredient called “Vichy Spa Water”. This ingredient, along with the latest skin care innovations from dermatological research, are said to create products which have soothing properties and can reinforce the skin’s natural functions. The main ingredient, Vichy Spa Water, comes from the Vichy Mountains in Central France. It has supposedly been used since the 17th century for many dermatological uses. It is highly concentrated and is said to contain fifteen different mineral salts and trace elements that are good for the skin. These products from Vichy Laboratories are 100% natural and recognized by the French Academy of Medicine.
One of the products in the Vichy Laboratories skin care line is Vichy Aqualia Thermal Cream 24 Hour Fortifying Moisturizer. The cream is intended to offer twenty-four hours of continuous hydration and moisture via a patented “sprinkler like” delivery system which infuses the skin with anti-oxidants and mineral rich Vichy Thermal Spa Water to fortify the skin. The manufacturer claims that the cream is formulated with unique “ceramide-like” polymer which mimics the shape of the skin’s natural ceramides to allow for instant penetration below the surface. The skin is said to feel soft, supple and comfortable with the use of Vichy Aqualia Thermal Cream 24 Hour Fortifying Moisturizer. The company promotes that the product is dermatologist tested, tested on sensitive skin, allergy tested and non-comodogenic. According to the Vichy Laboratories website, the formula is intended for normal to dry skin. The product website does not provide the full list of ingredients for this product, which is disappointing as we are unable to determine how well the product actually works as it is said to.

The Bottom Line
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Cream 24 Hour Fortifying Moisturizer will likely appeal to consumers with very dehydrated skin. The product may provide some moisturizing benefits. However, without the full list of ingredients, it is difficult to substantiate the company claims for this product. For intense moisturizing and anti-aging benefits, consumers should look for products that contain advanced ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Real Collagen and Matrixyl.
