Vichy's thermal spring water has been put under many clinical trials to test its effect on the stimulation of the skin's natural defences. It has been proven to increase an anti-free radical enzyme responsible for the skin's defences by 20%.
One particular clinical study looked at 24 women using Vichy's Thermal Spa Water. After use for 7 days, thermal spring water is able to eliminate redness and reduce dryness by 83% and after just 1 month it is able to significantly reduce skin irritation, stinging, itching and burning.
