Biologique Recherche is haute couture skincare, made in France. The products are available worldwide and the family-oriented company has a reputation for astounding effectiveness based on a clinical and personalised approach to skin care using intentionally pure, raw active ingredients.
DECADES OF PASSION
Yvan, Josette and Philippe Allouche, a biologist, a physiotherapist and a doctor, combined their know-how and passion to write a unique and visionary page in the history of skin care. When the company was founded, in the late 70´s, it functioned like a research and development laboratory whose sole vocation was to develop formulations for professionals dissatisfied with existing products.
Today, the Biologique Recherche Methodology has a reputation for astounding effectiveness based on a clinical approach to beauty care using intentionally pure, concentrated, raw ingredients, as well as innovative and meticulous protocols and procedures. Philippe Allouche, is a clinical doctor who showed an early interest in the profoundly different approach taken by his parents. In the early 2000's he gradually took over the creative side of the business from his father Yvan.
His experience in internal medicine gave him a holistic approach to the skin as an organ directly interconnected to all the other vital body functions. In addition, his work in intensive care units gave him expertise in organ reactions to acute stress. Now, his experiences add a new dimension to all the brand's own special techniques. Today, Philippe Allouche is the guarantor of Biologique Recherche's unique philosophy and know-how in high-end personalized beauty care. Biologique Recherche is an international brand available in over 70 countries.
PRINCIPLE OF FORMULATION
Authenticity and harmony are the spirit and essence of Biologique Recherche skin care products which all boast the following specific characteristics :
- High concentration (over 20% in most products) of botanical, marine and biological extract.
- No artificial fragrances to preserve the integrity of the formulas and try to avoid allergic reactions.
- Respects the original structure of the active ingredients and most are therefore cold formulations.
- Contain high quality of their composition and active ingredients justifies the brand's value
- Formulated to work together using unique, original gestures and Remodeling Face Machine for immediate, outstanding, almost magical results.
BR's original methodology is based on the following three fundamental stages:
1. Using a specific physiological, behavioral and tactile approach, each person's "Skin Instant" is assessed so that the most appropriated tailored beauty treatment can be recommended.
2. The epidermis' noble functions must be respected and it should receive customized treatment applied according to a precise and rigorous ritual. At Biologique Recherche they believe this stage is essential.
3. During the treatment stage, products containing the highest concentrations of active ingredients are applied to "recondition" the epidermis and help activate both its regeneration properties and those of the skin's deeper structures. The skin is a complex organ designed for protection and communication which regenerates miraculously every month throughout our entire lives. The unique benefits of these cutting edge, customized skin care treatments are both instant and lasting, even for particularly imbalanced "Skin Instants".
'OUT-OF-THE-BOX' VISION OF THE SKIN
A person has not one but several skins. Our skin's condition changes several times a single day as well as during the course of our lifetimes. Everyone has different "Skin Instant" which can evolve during the course of one day. The artificial categorization of skins as normal, dry or oily provides a poor psychological definition of a skin's condition and only gives a stationary image of the epidermal cosmetic imbalances.
The same epidermis can present balanced, dehydrated zones and hyper-secretion of sebum all at the same time. Inappropriate treatment can easily lead to new imbalances or reactive old ones. For example, an over aggressive product for so called "oily" skins can cause epidermal hydration problems, while a comedogenous or over-rich product used on formally hyper-seborrheic, now apparently balanced skin and trigger a recurrence of the earlier condition.
Lastly, external factors like climate, temperature, air-conditioning, tobacco, pollution, and internal factors like stress, sexual hormones, hygiene and age affect the skin. Biologique Recherche's Methodology addresses all these factors and how they evolve when it treats the epidermis. This is why we talk of "Skin Instants". Biologique Recherche professionals are trained to analyze all these variables and advise the women and men on the treatment that is best suited to their "Skin Instants".
The cleansing milks remove all traces of make-up and pollution. They are applied like creams in an ascending outward massage from the neck up to the top of the face to remove impurities from the face, neck and cleavage. They are rinsed off with a moistened cotton pad. The active ingredients initiate the beauty treatment and leave the skin soft and refreshed. These products are used in the first stage of every Biologique Recherche beauty care program and are used every day in the morning and in the evening. Make-up removal should begin on the eye area using a spotlessly clean cotton pad.
The P50, P50V and P50W balancing exfoliators are the unique fruit of 30 years of reflection and experience. P50 balancing exfoliators speed up the epidermis' natural exfoliating process and the reconstruction of the epidermal shield. The fortified epidermis can then fulfill its protective functions completely, enhancing skin's self-regeneration potential. Lotion P50, our most famous and coveted product, is the keystone to Biologique Recherche skin care treatment. All Biologique Recherche skin care treatments, whether administered at home or in a beauty institute, start with the P50 ritual.
The Quintessential Serums are the purest formulations in the Biologique Recherche range. Their only active ingredients are amino acids or short peptides and a bare minimum of preservatives. They are designed to treat specific skin imbalances (dehydrated, devitalized, lined and/or seborrheic skin, etc.). The serums can be used alone, or mixed together.
Some Skin Instants may present specific but temporary imbalances that require targeted treatment and both immediate and lasting results. This is why Biologique Recherche has developed the Targeted Serums. Their composition in phytobiologically and biotechnologically obtained active principles will attack the causes and consequences of observed dysfunctions.
These serums are used for the finishing touches and have very special formulations. They are sophisticated and glamorous and their precious formulas provide instant and lasting effects. They can be applied both under and over creams to give the skin a natural glow and radiance.

ACCLIMATION OF PRODUCTS
Start by introducing one product at a time when switching to new skincare products. It takes approximately 2-8 weeks for the skin to acclimate to new products, and for you to see an improvement. Initially, you may experience worsening of the skin before it gets better; dryness, impurities and blemishes are common. This cleansing is normal and happens because the skin is wearing off the previous products. If you experience lasting discomfort, stop the treatment and contact one of our estheticians.
General contraindications for products containing active ingredients (e.g. AHA products):
- If you are still using exfoliating products from a different line of products; stop using these 2 weeks prior to starting a new treatment.
- Do not exfoliate on sunburned skin (red/irritated) or newly waxed skin.
- Do not use if your are taking prescription medication for acne.
- If you are using prescription medication for acne e.g. Roacutan, you should stop taking the medicine at least 6 months prior to using products with active ingredients.
- If you are using topical creams to treat acne e.g. Aberela, Retinova, Zorac, Differin, you should stop using the product at least 2-3 months prior to exfoliating your skin.
