An estimated 90% of the female population is affected by cellulite in varying severity depending on weight, nationality, and skin elasticity. Although exercise and a balanced diet are clinically proven to help maintain a healthy weight, these can only do so much to prevent this stubborn problem which affects women of all shapes and sizes. While even liposuction or dieting cannot completely remove cellulite, Vichy Laboratoires has made a breakthrough with CelluDestock, a topical cream formulated to accelerate cellulite reduction for a visible loss of up to one cellulite grade in 4 weeks*. Paraben-free CelluDestock is the first topical slimming accelerator on the market, and is the #1 selling cellulite cream in Canada and #2 in Europe.

Dr. Ranella Hirsch, noted Boston dermatologist, explains the facts about cellulite:

Q: Whom does cellulite affect and why?
Dr. Hirsch:  Women are more predisposed to the appearance of cellulite due to the vertical nature of the fibrous bands binding the fat, which is in contrast to the more net-like appearance of the bands found in men.  Also, since women generally have thinner skin than men, we more commonly encounter this frustration among women.  Indeed, cellulite remains among the biggest complaints I receive from women on a daily basis. They tell me that what they find particularly frustrating is that no amount of gym time seems to get rid of the bumps.

Q: Which parts of the body are more prone to cellulite and weight gain? Is all cellulite the same?
Dr. Hirsch: The hips, thighs, and buttocks are most prone to cellulite. These areas are where women have a propensity to carry weight gain and are also more resistant to weight loss from dieting.

Scientists at Vichy Laboratoires have conducted years of research and have found there are three types of the cellulite troubling women ~ Fibrous cellulite,  Aqueous cellulite , and Adipose cellulite ~ and that most women have  at least two types.

To combat all types of cellulite on these diet-resistant areas, Vichy Laboratoires harnessed the power of two key ingredients ~ PURE CAFFEINE 5% and LIPOCIDINE™  ~ to form CelluDestock.

• Lipocidine™ is an active ingredient scientifically proven to help stimulate the expression of a protein that promotes the breakdown of excess lipids stocked in adipose (fat) tissue.

• Pure Caffeine 5% reinforces the action of Lipocidine, activating the breakdown of fats and helping to promote micro-circulation. This active slimming ingredient works at the pharmaceutical concentration of 5 percent.


In a study Vichy Laboratories conducted on 50 women, skin texture was smoother on stomach, thighs and buttocks after 7 days of using CelluDestock, reducing the orange peel-like appearance. In 2 weeks, skin was firmer and more elastic. In 4 weeks, cellulite was visibly reduced by up to 1 cellulite grade*. Skin on the thighs and buttocks appeared more defined. In addition, the breakdown of excess volume was improved by 80%, even on areas predisposed to stubborn fat: hips, thighs, and buttocks. Forty-nine out of 50 also saw a reduction in the appearance of cellulite on pinching, and all 50 saw a loss in hip, thigh, and buttock volume.

For superior results, a massage application is recommended to promote drainage and stimulate fibroblasts.  CelluDestock has an ultra light, refreshing texture that melts into the skin, leaving skin soft, supple and smooth.

CelluDestock is available at CVS and Duane Reade, as well as at
