Vichy Slow Âge: The anti-ageing saviour that’s been nine years in the making

When it comes to anti-ageing products we’re always on the lookout for the next hero product. UV rays, stress, lack of sleep and pollution all silently age the skin, chipping away at our youthful glow day after day.

Believe it or not, 80% of how we age is due to external environmental factors as opposed to our genetics. Such factors are known as ‘Exposome’, and with our lifestyles becoming increasingly busier, it’s never been more important to protect skin from external aggressors. That’s why, French skincare brand Vichy have spent nine years creating a powerful anti-ageing product that prevents and protects the damage caused by environmental stress.

Packed with powerful probiotics, SPF 25 and UVA protection the Slow Âge range has been expertly formulated to slow down the signs of ageing. Aimed at women between the ages of 25 to 45 who want to maintain a healthy complexion, it’s the perfect anti-ageing product for both prevention and correction. Helping women to maintain a healthy complexion, the natural way.

How does it work?

Comprising of 3 key ingredients, the powerful elements work hard to build your skin’s defences, helping you to maintain a healthy, radiant glow. However, the Slow Age range isn’t about creating a plumped-up artificial look, or even looking 10 years younger than you are, it’s about ageing well and protecting your skin for the future.


What are the key ingredients in the Slow Âge range?
