Biotherm harnesses biotech in natural beauty education
The natural brand announced its first "Biotherm Healing Summit" took place on 7th March 2018.

With Lionel Breton, Scientific Director, L'Oréal Advanced Research in attendance, the Summit focused on the theme of skin and healing. The day highlighted major research findings evidencing the relationship between microorganisms and skin health.

Introducing Life Plankton, which Biotherm hails as a “healing miracle​”  — and served as inspiration for launching the company — the luxury skin care name showcased a 100-strong collection of scientific proofs.

Scientific research

This selection was developed in partnership with internationally recognised research centres that strive to indicate the associated benefits of Life Plankton to improve skin, gathered over a total three decades.

These have been researched in partnership with internationally renowned research centres including Stanford University (USA), Pasteur Institute (Lyon France), Inserm (Lyon France), Liège University (Belgium) and Tubingen University (Germany); resulting in eight patents and multiple publications.

The power of microbiomes

Emphasising the development of microbiomes, Biotherm furthers research and understanding of skin health and knowledge.

“This ever-growing industry offers a promising prospect to improve human health, as improving technology allows for the development of microbiota in a variety of ways,"​ Biotherm said in a recent press release.

“Due to this reason, microbiome research is set to make waves in the science and medical world through its applications in preventive treatments, therapies, cures and supplements.”

Bridging the relationship with the microbiome concept, life plankton comprises the basal component of all Biotherm formulas.

Natural formulation

After undergoing 30 years of scientific study, Biotherm unveils how the natural organisms identified in the sulfuric thermal waters were found to "improve all skin types, from sebum control, moisturisation or tightening of pores"​. The formulation aims to address any skin condition for all ages and hopes to lower the visibility of wrinkles and improve skin clarity, fighting loss of elasticity or acne.

Concentrating on its capabilities to heal, renew and protect skin, Life Plankton — at 5% concentration — is set to visibly transform skin disorders and reduce sensitivity, redness and itchy skin. In addition, the solution strives to optimise the skin's natural renewal processes

Biotherm achieves this by focusing on skin biology and utilising aquatic ingredients in advanced skincare solutions to reinforce and strengthen the skin’s defence system.
