The Assessment Stage is the first step of the Biologique Recherche Methodology. Assessment of the Epidermis. Biologique Recherche believes that the state of the epidermis or the skin’s “roof” is telling of the skin’s internal state. This determines the specific treatment and products the client is supposed to receive.
The skin is cleansed and prepared to restore the epidermis’natural regenerative properties.
The Initialization Stage is a crucial part of the Biologique Recherche Methodology. During this stage, the epidermis is thoroughly cleansed, its pH is balanced, it is gently exfoliated and its proteo-lipidic film is restored. Impurities and dead cells are gradually brought to the surface and eliminated. After this stage, which includes make-up removal, gentle exfoliation and a mask, the skin is ready to receive the Treatment Stage products.
The treatment applied during this fundamental stage is designed to leave the complexion beautiful and radiant.
The Treatment Stage is the most active of the Biologique Recherche skin care program. The products that are used during this stage contain high concentrations of botanical, marine and biological extracts. When applied in accordance with the Biologique Recherche Methodology, they balance, hydrate and revitalize the epidermis. The active ingredients work progressively to improve the quality of the skin and leave the complexion radiant.
ASSESSMENT OF THE EPIDERMIS
Biologique Recherche believes that the state of the epidermis or the skin’s “roof” is telling of the skin’s internal state. This determines the specific treatment and products the client is supposed to receive.
Our face care cleansing products remove all traces of make-up and pollution. The active ingredients initiate the beauty treatment and leave the skin soft and clean. These products are used in the first stage
of every Biologique Recherche beauty care program in the morning and in the evening. Eye make-up should be removed first, with a clean cotton pad.
The Lotions P50 are the culmination of 40 years of reflection and experience. The Lotions P50 balancing exfoliators speedup the epidermis’ natural exfoliation process and the reconstruction of the epidermal shield. The fortified epidermis can then effectively fulfill its protective functions, thus enhancing skin’s self-regeneration potential. Lotion P50, our most famous and covetedproduct, is the cornerstone to Biologique Recherche skin care treatments. All Biologique Recherche skin care treatments, whether administered at home or in a beauty institute,start with the “P50 ritual” in the morning andevening. This lotion gently exfoliates the skin, regulates excess sebum secretion, moisturizes and helps maintain the epidermis’ acid pH. It prevents and treats in-growing hairs, making it ideal for pre- and post- shaving skin care.
These products can either complement P50 with their replumping effect (MC 110) or be used in lieu of P50 (Lotion Alpha Kérato-Régulatrice) to treat particularly devitalized or keratinized Skin Instants®.
PURIFYING AND STABILIZING MASKS
These are the last products that are applied before the Treatment Stage. They contain high concentrations of active ingredients to balance and purify the epidermis and preserve all the benefits of previous treatments performed. They contain Essential Fatty Acids to replenish the skin’s proteo-lipidic film after exfoliation and to prepare the skin for the products that are applied during the Treatment Stage.
Unlike other brands, at Biologique Recherche, the masks are applied in the middle of the skin care program and not at the end. This is done deliberately to avoid removing the active ingredients used in the Treatment Stage when removing the mask.
Since its introduction, Biologique Recherche has produced a range of cutting-edge products for use solely by professionals who have received training from Biologique Recherche. These highly technical products are used differently depending on the individual skin analysis. They contain
high concentrations of active ingredients and provide instant results when used according to the Biologique Recherche Methodology.
The Quintessential Serums are the purest formulations in the Biologique Recherche range. Their main active ingredients are amino acids and short peptides. They are designed to treat specific skin imbalances (dehydrated, devitalized, lined and/or seborrheic skin, etc.).
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, a new generation of serums. Their composition in phytobiologically and biotechnologically obtained active principles will attack the causes and consequences of observed dysfunctions.
BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE CREAMS
The creams are applied to the face, neck and decollete and supply balanced botanical, biological and marine elements to the skin. They supplement the actions of the Quintessential Serums, protecting the skin from external aggressions. The creams have a special texture that moisturizes without leaving an oily film. They are easy to apply and rich in active ingredients, providing optimum results with a dime-sized amount. Most Biologique Recherche beauty programs include two different creams, one for daytime and one for nighttime. Our range comprises three different types of creams: Essential Creams, Specific Creams and Intensive Creams.
These serums provide the finishing touch on the Biologique Recherche face care regimen. They are sophisticated and glamorous and their special formulas provide instant and lasting effects. They can be applied both under and over creams to give the skin a natural glow and radiance. These precious fluids contain botanical extracts with a variety of vitamins and antioxidants, as well as hyaluronic acid and potent moisturizing and oxygenating DNA extracts. The finishing serums stabilize the products applied during the Treatment Stage. They make an excellent base for make-up and are perfect for use on both a daily basis and for special events. Finishing serums prolong and protect the effects of the Biologique Recherche skin care products.
