Time to reinstate your skin’s health
With a range of innovative products that include face creams and moisturisers, discover how intense and long-lasting hydration helps you achieve glowing skin with this French beauty giant
Glowing skin is quite possibly top on every woman’s list on how we want our skin to look like. It’s why we pile on face potions regularly, visit our dermatologists, and read up on tips and tricks to get our skin looking radiant. But it seems that no matter what we do, achieving that coveted complexion is just out of our reach. So we went straight to the source. The Weekly headed to Singapore recently for the first Biotherm Healing Summit to speak to experts on getting the secrets to lit-from-within, envy-inducing glow and how we can incorporate them into our beauty regimen.
A NATURAL PROCESS
A pioneer in skin biology, French luxury skincare, Biotherm first came into being after the discovery of the healing benefits of Life Plankton and its enormous potential as a skincare ingredient in the 1950s by army doctor, Jos Jullien. So where was Life Plankton discovered? Legend has it that in an area of the French Pyrenees, a group of Gallo- Roman soldiers bathed in a thermal spring and were astounded by the effect the water had on their skin, which was immediately made softer, smoother, and younger. It was in this area that Jullien found the water source centuries later. Today Biotherm uses these aquatic ingredients in advanced skincare solutions. Through their expertise in Blue Biotechnology, they have infused these powerful actives in a fresh and pleasurable texture.
Over a period of up to 90 days, Life Plankton is slowly processed in a controlled environment, combined with a cocktail of minerals, vitamins, sugars, plant and yeast extract to maximise its potential, allowing Life Plankton to grow 1,000 times faster and concentrated up to 400,000 times more than its natural state.
With this process, Life Plankton is now a completely natural and renewable ingredient that is at the core of Biotherm Life Plankton products.
At the summit, the theme was Skin & Healing, focusing on major research that has evidenced the link between micro-organisms and skin health.
Dr Lionel Breton, Scientific Director, L’ORÉAL Advanced Research presented an impressive collection of 100 scientific proofs developed in partnership with renowned research centres that demonstrate Life Plankton’s ability to improve skin, accumulated over a 30-year period.
Microbiome research is set to make waves in the science and medical world through its applications in preventive treatments, therapies, cures and supplements, according to Dr Breton. 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.
Linked to the microbiome concept, the rare Life Plankton is the basal component of all Biotherm formulas and in over 130 face and body skincare for various skin types and concerns.
Life Plankton is scientifically proven to improve skin appearance, acting on eight known areas: sebum, elasticity, pigmentation, redness and sensitivity, moisturisation, wrinkles, acne, and pores. Just add Life Plankton Essence to your daily routine and you won’t have to ask how to get flawless skin again.
