HOW A DISCOVERY IN THE FRENCH PYRENEES THERMAL SPRINGS TRANSFORMED SKINCARE
A skin-healing ingredient discovered in the French Pyrenees thermal springs has become the heart of Biotherm skincare. Find out how Life Plankton™, the most powerful regenerating ingredient in the cosmetic industry, is a gift from nature to your skin.
A remarkable discovery
The thermal springs of the French Pyrenees Mountains have been famous for their healing powers for centuries. In the 1940s, a curious army doctor, Dr. Jos Jullien, began researching the springs in an attempt to find new therapies for healing wounded soldiers. Passionate about the study of thermal waters, Dr. Jullien hoped to find the mysterious truth behind centuries of legend, and he did just that when he discovered a unique substance floating on the surface of the spring baths: a living microorganism called Life Plankton™. Life Plankton™ contains 35 vitamins, nutrients, glucids, and trace elements that are vital for healthy skin function. Realizing its highly nutritive quality and natural affinity with skin made it an ideal ingredient for skincare, the good doctor set out to make Life Plankton™ available to everyone!
A gift from nature
At the core of Biotherm’s DNA is a great respect for nature and an understanding of its ability to transform and heal skin in the most natural way. Today, the highest concentration of Life Plankton™ possible (5%) is available in Biotherm Life Plankton™ Essence, a hydrating face essence with the potency of a serum and the lightweight texture of water. The essence absorbs deeply into the skin to work at the cellular level, visibly transforming your complexion by healing blemishes, soothing redness, and restoring radiance for perfectly healthy skin.
