A pioneer since the 1970s, BIODERMA has acquired unique expertise by placing biology at the service of dermatology. This original scientific approach relies first and foremost on knowledge of the skin and its biological mechanisms to formulate products directly inspired by them. All BIODERMA research revolves around the study of healthy skin and its cells and imbalances. The skin speaks its own language and BIODERMA tirelessly seeks to understand it. It is subject to changes and environmental stresses. Therefore, diseases, medicated treatments, ageing and many other factors may affect its balance and cause it to malfunction. BIODERMA's approach involves reactivating the skin's natural resources to help it resist and recover its normal functions, which are those found in healthy skin. Based on total respect for the skin, BIODERMA products imitate its natural biological mechanisms through their components and their modes of action. To formulate them, BIODERMA selects the purest active ingredients, using molecules naturally found in the skin for better tolerance. Depending on the malfunction, BIODERMA products preserve, activate or restore the skin's natural processes.
