Founded by a French pharmacist, Bioderma formulates products with a team of biologists and dermatologists, in order to closely study and treat various skin conditions. Bioderma products reactivate the skin's natural resources to help it resist environmental factors and recover its normal functions. Free of dermatologically questionable ingredients, Bioderma products preserve, activate and restore the skin's natural processes. Made with pure active ingredients that are highly effective, yet gentle enough for the most sensitive skin. Bioderma is part of the NAOS Company founded by French pharmacist and biologist Jean-Noël Thorel focusing on Ecobiology, a dermatological approach to skin. “Rather than over-treating the skin, it must learn how to function properly.” NAOS sees the skin as a living ecosystem that constantly interacts with its environment and that changes over time. Ecobiology was born from this dynamic vision: radically different to traditional cosmetics, this scientific approach is based on respect for the skin and knowledge of its biology. Bioderma uses the NAOS approach of ecobiology to help the skin to adapt to its environment and to draw on its own resources to act on the causes of its imbalances, in order to recover its natural functions.
