From the clinical environment to cosmetics
Built in 1905 in an exceptional and intimate environment above Montreux and Lake Geneva, the VALMONT Clinic was the first to offer dietary follow-up and hydrotherapy sessions. Famous politicians and artists from all over the world came to the clinic to rest and enjoy tailored treatments and personal care.
In the 1980’s
VALMONT innovated by becoming the first Swiss clinic entirely dedicated to health and wellness. While continuing to cater to prestigious guests, the clinic was well known for skin regenerating treatments. Building on their clinical expertise, distinguished cosmetologists selected the most active molecules for skin regeneration – such as HP DNA and native collagen, marking the birth of VALMONT cellular cosmetics. The cosmetics products were developed to help skin regeneration after surgery and to prolong the visible results. This concept met with immediate success.
Although the clinic and cosmetics are now two clearly separate entities, VALMONT perpetuates the Swiss medical tradition. Unlike most cosmetics companies, VALMONT is privileged to be a family owned business, driven by Didier Guillon and Sophie Vann-Guillon. Both share the same vision of cosmetics and beauty, and the same desire to innovate and achieve excellence in skin care product quality.
Inside each jar and bottle of products…
A constant innovator, the company draws inspiration from latest cosmetic cellular findings to offer utmost anti-aging products with visible and long lasting efficacy. Patented Triple DNA, liposomed RNA and DNA, Glacial Spring Water and pure plant extracts are the key ingredients used for their unequalled hydration, regeneration and cellular reactivation properties.
The richness of Switzerland’s natural resources
Glacial Spring Water
Pure, soft and perfectly balanced. Its ideal composition in minerals encourages tissue exchanges, revitalizes the cellular metabolism and stimulates the skin’s natural defense system.
Phyto Alpine Garden
VALMONT’s unique Phyto-Alpine garden is located at the heart of Swiss Alps in the village of Vens. Under pure and controlled environment, VALMONT cultivates 8 plants (Rosa Moschata, Sea Buckthorn, Echinacea, Mallow, Marigold, Nettles, White Lupine and Dill) selected for their effects on the skin. Collaborating with leading Swiss Experts: MEDIPLANT for the selection of plant species, VALPLANTES for the cultivation and ALPAFLOR for the purest extraction, VALMONT ensures total quality control of the extracts that will be incorporated into the products.
Research & Technology
DNA is selected for its exceptional moisturizing, anti-oxidant and energizing properties as well as its amazing capabilities of cellular regeneration.
HP DNA and Triple DNA
The DNA that is used by VALMONT comes from the Canadian salmon milt. Thanks to a patented extraction process, its molecular structure remains intact. The DNA is said to be « HP » which means highly polymerized. When ingenuously combined with three essential macro-elements (Magnesium, Calcium and Sodium) HP DNA becomes Triple DNA. Selected for their oxygenation and cellular regeneration properties, these three macro-elements provide the DNA molecule with the benefits of the mineral world.
Incorporated in the heart of VALMONT formulas, RNA releases a genuine source of energy and acts as a powerful bio activator of cells. In 2010, Prime Generation line formulas integrate a new kind of RNA : RNA in liposome which has the property to rebalance the intercellular cement.
Liposmed DNA for even more performance
The creation of the DNA liposome is a true tribute to scientific research. This innovation is a real technological prowess as it is extremely difficult to encapsulate Triple DNA into a membrane of phospholipids. With this new exclusive ingredient, VALMONT is reaching new levels of anti-age efficacy and technology.
