‘I don’t believe in miracles, only in results’
V A L É R I E V R O O M E
Skincare by VV has been created by Valérie Vroome, a dermato-cosmetic scientist and pharmacist with over 20+ years of expertise in skincare. She has a professional background in skincare and worked in this sector in R&D, sales, marketing and medical affairs positions.
She grew up in a pharmacist family in Ostend, a quirky Nord sea town with a heritage in thermal bathing and wellness.
Her passion for skin and skincare started as a teenager, when she fell in love with chemistry. She always wanted to apply her passion for chemistry to skincare, but unfortunately, a lack of cosmological studies back then, and her dad – also a pharmacist – directed her into studying pharmacy. Her passion for skincare however never faded and all her professional life she searched for the perfect skin routine for herself.
Valérie Vroome: ‘My entire professional life I had an amazing passion for skin. When, during some projects, I was in contact with patients, I discovered also what psychologic effect skin problems have on people. The skin is the first contact we have with other persons. The touch, feeling and its appearance have a huge impact on our well-being and self-esteem. By understanding this psychologic impact and combining it with my scientific background, I have been the witness of numerous persons who with the correct skincare have seen their life change. This is what strengthens my passion and enthusiasm for skincare.
