Everyone loves a multi-tasking product, and Vichy’s Minéral 89 Prebiotic lets you choose your own skincare adventure. Formulated to help protect the skin from factors that lead to dryness, dullness and fine lines, this concentrated reparative serum features mineral-rich Vichy Volcanic Water and niacinamide, which is a form of vitamin B3 that helps reduce moisture loss and dehydration. Another standout ingredient is vitreoscilla ferment, a nutrient-rich non-living bacteria discovered at Vichy Volcanic Water’s source. Testing has shown that this prebiotic concentrate helps accelerate skin recovery, restore skin barrier function and support the skin’s natural defenses against external and internal stressors.

This unique combination of ingredients provides enhanced skin radiance, improved skin texture and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines in just four weeks—and the non-greasy, milky serum texture absorbs in a flash. How will you use it?

Target stressed skin

Just think about all the environmental aggressors your skin encounters throughout the day… No wonder it’s stressed! Skin stressors like pollution, can contribute to visible signs of aging, but Minéral 89 Prebiotic acts as a first line of recovery and defense.

Extra hydration

Minéral 89 Prebiotic is also formulated with hyaluronic acid. This natural humectant attracts moisture to the skin to provide an instant hydrating and plumping boost that smoothes the look of fine lines and gives a boost to skin elasticity.

Enhance skin tolerance when using retinol or AHAs

It’s no secret that ingredients like retinol and alpha-hydroxy acids can cause a bit of irritation, especially when you first start using them. Minéral 89 Prebiotic helps soothe the appearance of redness and irritation, so you can stick with these ingredients and get the results you want. This gentle serum’s calming benefits can also help promote skin repair after professional treatments.

Pair with your retinol

Minéral 89 Prebiotic has your skin’s back every time you use a retinol product. Make the most of its calming and soothing benefits by applying this serum before or after your retinol step—it’s up to you!

Repair the skin barrier and protect against future damage

Healthy looking skin starts with a healthy barrier, and Minéral 89 Prebiotic’s ingredients work together to help achieve this goal. Vitreoscilla ferment works to support the skin’s microbiome, while niacinamide works hand-in-hand with the skin barrier to prevent moisture loss and dehydration. As an added plus, the antioxidants found in mineral-rich Vichy Volcanic Water help shield the skin from free radical damage that can cause visible signs of aging down the line.

Prep your skin for your skincare regimen

You have the ideal opportunity to provide your skin with an extra bit of soothing between cleansing and completing the rest of your skincare regimen. Think of Minéral 89 Prebiotic as the perfect “prep” step that gets your skin ready for products to come.

Just a reminder, Minéral 89 serums are not meant to be combined, but you can alternate between Minéral 89 Prebiotic and the original Minéral 89 Booster Serum depending on your skin’s needs from day to day, week to week or season to season.

There’s a place for Minéral 89 Prebiotic in every skincare regimen, and it’s ideal for all skin types (including sensitive). This dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested, non-comedogenic serum is free of parabens and fragrance, which make it a gentle yet effective way to defend your skin against the effects of stress, reinforce the skin’s barrier, and help protect your skin from future damage.
