A pioneer in skin biology since discovering the benefits of Life Plankton in 1952, Biotherm uses the incredible force of aquatic ingredients in advanced skincare solutions. Through expertise in Biotechnology, the brand infuses these powerful actives in unparalleled pleasurable textures for a healthy and active BEAUTY.
A HEALING MIRACLE
Today, Biotherm offers a full range of over 130 face and body solutions, adapted for every skin type, concern and lifestyle. Iconic products include Life Plankton Essence, Aquasource Gel, Blue Therapy Serum and Lait Corporel. The legend of Life Plankton and its miraculous healing powers is embedded in the DNA of Biotherm. In 1952, Dr. Jos Jullien took a trip to the French Pyrenees, where he discovered a miraculous fountain in which Roman warriors would bathe after battle, in order to heal their wounds. Here, he discovered Life Plankton, a unique natural ingredient exclusive only to Biotherm. After 8 years of research, Biotherm biologists developed a unique bio-fermentation process called Fermogenesis, which allowed Life Plankton to be made 400,000 times more concentrated than that of its natural state.
Healing is an integral part of Biotherm’s DNA. Therefore, it is not only the brand’s mission to heal skin but it is also the brand’s responsibility to contribute to planet protection through a sustainable commitment.

IMPACT AND COMMITMENT
In 2012, Biotherm built the Water Lovers initiative, a program to minimize Biotherm’s impact on water and aquatic life and contribute towards the protection of important marine areas. The initiative’s mission is a source of inspiration that is integrated throughout the brand at every level, internally and externally: ingredients, formulae for skincare products, packaging, consumer education and awareness, or philanthropy. Internally, Biotherm Water Lovers has developed a strong sustainable water plan, committed to more sustainable water use and environmental best practices in the production of existing and future products, from a minimum 90% biodegradability target for rinse-off formulas and 100% FSC certified cardboard packaging to introducing naturally-derived particles in our scrubs.
In 2017, Biotherm brought product sustainability to the next level with the launch of the brand’s first eco-designed WaterLover Sun Milk, respectful of aquatic life. This product was the result of seven years of research conducted by a team of 20 scientists.
BIOTHERM X MISSION BLUE
Biotherm collaborates with Mission Blue. Founded by the ocean’s greatest spokeswoman, Dr Sylvia Earle, Mission Blue is a global campaign to protect the unprotected ocean. As Mission Blue’s partner since 2012, Biotherm Water Lovers is actively contributing to protecting marine areas critical to ocean health and worthy of special protection, called Hope Spots.
BIOTHERM X TARA OCEAN FOUNDATION
In 2018, Biotherm announced its partnership with Tara Ocean Foundation to financially support their efforts and research projects. Since 2003, the French non-profit organisation collaborates with international scientific institutions to study and understand the impact of climate and ecological change on the ocean and is committed to make preservation of the oceans a common responsibility for all of us. Thanks to Biotherm’s support, Tara Ocean Foundation will be able to better understand the evolution of coral reefs in the context of climate and demographic changes.
The partnership with Tara Ocean Foundation adds a new milestone to the brand’s sustainability commitment.
