As times have changed, so have our perceptions about the sun.  The era of Idéal Soleil is here, a new chapter in sun care which provides an ideal range of products with the combination of a high-performance sun protection with skincare active ingredients to make the skin more beautiful in the sun.

What do women long for in the sun? What is their key to ideal skin in the sun? To find out, Vichy carried out a study on 700 women. For them, sun care has to rival the very best of skincare. They are looking for skin that is better hydrated and protected against ageing-induced sun-damage, they seek flawless skin (without dark spots, redness, spots), but above all they want their tan to be more even, radiant and long-lasting. And this is where things get tricky. Women are looking for an ideal golden skin, beautified by the sun.

However, since the sun is a source of inflammation, dehydration, dark spots and excess sebum, the reality is far from ideal. In addition, women expect a tanned look from the very start of exposure. In order to solve this complex equation and reconcile women with their skin in the sun, Vichy has created Idéal Soleil, an ideal range designed to provide a balance between both worlds: achieving a natural tan while staying protected against the sun’s harmful effects.

Idéal Soleil’s Skin Life Science formulation includes a highly effective UVB/UVA with long-wave UVA patented protection and active ingredients with pleasantly sensorial textures. Long-wave UVA protection eliminates 75% of all UV, leading to a more luminous tan with softer and smoother skin. Wrinkles and dark spots are reduced. With Ideal Soleil’s products demonstrated under dermatological and pediatric supervision, now everyone can safely have access to a beautiful, even and lasting tan.

Ideal Soleil, Hydrating Tan Optimiser Spray SPF50 is an ultra-light, water resistant milk for men and women who want an even tan. It has an increased protection against UVB and UVA rays. It includes Tyrosine C which naturally activates melanin production, allowing a more natural looking tan and Also includes the soothing, strengthening and regenerating Vichy Thermal Spa Water which is a key ingredient. This product is suitable for sensitive skin as it is paraben-free and hypoallergenic.

Ideal Soleil, Dry Oil is for women in search of an even tan and silky skin. Its light oil delivers a pleasant fragrance with a non-oily and non-sticky texture. The UVA and UVB filtering system along with Vichy Thermal Spa water’s regenerative properties makes this a perfect product to slip into a beach bag on the sunniest of days.
