MORE SUSTAINABLE DESIGN SOLUTIONS
Biotherm strives to use sustainable & recycled materials at every touchpoint, from packaging to retail.

CREATING A GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF WATER LOVERS
We advocate for our oceans by working with the NGOs and experts that know them best. Since 2012, we are committed to a better future for our oceans through our Water Lovers program.

 

This is the best skin essence because it is as lightweight as cosmetic water and as active as a serum.The super-penetrative facial Essence delivers its powerful concentration of Life Plankton™ in the skin and creates a healthy canvas, facilitating your skincare routine.

This essence should be a part of the initial phase of your daily skincare routine: use it on a perfectly toned and cleansed skin after your moisturizer. This skin essence can be used in your skincare regimen in the morning and evening.
Shake facial essence well before use. Absorbing in seconds, this hydrating essence leaves the skin refreshed - neither sticky, nor oily or greasy.
1. Apply essence with dabbing movements on the forehead, the cheeks, the chin and the neck.
2. With both hands, tap the skin with your finger tips like falling rain, all over the face and neck.
3. Take about 2 more drops of skin essence on 2 fingers and reapply on some areas of the face, where skin can be particularly dry or need attention. You can draw 8s on your face as per the image on the left.
4. Finish this skincare step with “waves” movements, like when opening a book, to promote the circulation of fluids, from the inside and outwards, and upwards.
Don’t forget the neck

Created to be the 1st step of every beauty routine, this breakthrough texture, that applies like a cosmetic water and transforms into the lightest of serums, works as a miracle Essence. In 8 days see and feel a new-born skin.*
