The story of the brand began in 1952, when biologist Jeanine Marissal discovered the incredible power on the skin, of an active ingredient which has existed in French thermal springs for centuries. Twenty years of scientific work then allowed them to extract a pure active concentrate: Pure Thermal Plankton™. This star-ingredient, Ecocert certified, demonstrates multiple properties by stimulating and naturally protecting the cellular functions of the skin day after day.
Now combined with other selected natural ingredients, Pure Thermal Plankton is at the centre of a wide range of face, body and sun care for men and women.
The must-have’s of the brand: Aquasource, Age Fitness, Anti-rides Solaire Multiprotection, Lait Corporel, Eau Vitaminée, Eau d’Energie, Eau Pure, Celluli Laser, Aquapower, High Recharge, Force Supreme… and many more products which succeeded in turning Biotherm into the 1st global brand for men care and the 6th on the global care market (women face, body and sun care, men care) in selective distribution.
Since 1970, Biotherm is part of the Luxury Products division of L’Oréal.
