Founded in 1977, the independent Laboratoire Dermatologique BIODERMA, based in Lyon, France is one of the most frequently prescribed laboratories by French dermatologists. The laboratory develops dermo-cosmetic products, for medical prescription and medicinal consultancy, in close collaboration with dermatologists and renowned institutional research centres (CNRS, INSERM, CHU and universities). Bioderma is a brand that embeds a unique scientific approach based on the knowledge of the skin and its biological mechanisms to formulate skincare products.
Bioderma’s research brought numerous innovations for the most prominent types of skin & problems making A Skincare for each Skintype their slogan. These skin types go under 9 categories: Sensitive, Sensitive Dehydrated, Dry, Oily & Mixed, Damaged, Baby, Hair & Scalp, Sun & Skin, and Lightening.
Sébium H2O was the world’s 1st invention of cleansing water that gently cleanses sensitive, normal and dry skin. It works as an ultra-mild, non-rinse micellar water cleanser and make-up remover. Created to suit the needs of those who experience skin irritation and redness, the alcohol-free formula soothes and cools the skin as it cleanses it.
Photoderm Max is another 1st product that was built on biologically active sunscreen ingredient that counters the long-term damaging effects of UV exposure with the patent cellular BIO protection. This fragrance-free sunscreen, used on the face or body, provides broad-spectrum protection and reliable UVA screening (critical for anti-aging benefits).
Atoderm cream is the best solution when a skin is chronically dry. The cream moistens the skin through anti-dehydrating agents holding water in the upper layers of the skin and stopping it from evaporating. The skin becomes well moisturized and stronger to prevent the penetration of irritant elements.
White Objective Moussant is part of a Lightening range that brightens, smoothes and brings shine to the skin. The day care helps to eliminate brown spots and prevent any recurrence. The special ingredients of the cream are suitable for the most sensitive skin. For a long-term performance, the vitamin C, released gradually, limits melanin pigments, reduces existing hyper pigmentation and prevents recurrences. Patent WO, Bioderma’s innovation, works on the main mechanisms that cause skin pigmentation, thus ensuring optimum lightening and preventive action.
Since Bioderma is a widely trusted French skincare brand, no prescription is needed to get one of its products, in stores or online. It is not a pharmaceutical drug hence no doctor visit is needed either. After all, the cores of Bioderma’s formulas are solutions to underlying conditions and not temporary reliefs from symptoms.
