We’re all looking for a natural way to treat, protect and renew our skin. Since discovering Life Plankton™ in 1952, Biotherm has developed a series of products infused with the miraculous healing force of this unique natural ingredient. What makes it so special?

A unique and legendary ingredient

The story begins in 1952 in the French Pyrenees when Dr. Jos Jullien discovered a miraculous fountain in which Roman warriors would bathe after battle in order to heal their wounds. In this water, he found what would become Biotherm’s exclusive and iconic natural ingredient: Life Plankton™. After 8 years of research, Biotherm biologists developed a unique bio-fermentation process which allowed Life Plankton™ to be made 400 000 times more concentrated than that of its natural state. Isolated and amplified through this process, Life Plankton™ reignites the skin's regenerating powers and renews it.

A miraculous healing force

Today we need the power of this living microorganism to protect and heal our skin from daily aggressions such as stress, pollution, poor diet, smoke, UV light, lack of sleep… you name it! Created to be the first step of every beauty routine, Life Plankton™ Clear Essence and Life Plankton™ Essence act as fundamental skin healing and renewing treatments. Infused with this miraculous ingredient, these two products transform, day after day, your skin, making it look younger, your skin is clearer, brighter and renewed. To improve skin clarity and skin texture apply a small amount of Life Plankton™ Clear Essence or apply 5-6 drops of the original Life Plankton™ Essence to reduce skin dryness and make your skin smoother and more radiant. As effective as a serum, these incredible essences will transform and renew your skin in 8 days. Ready for a newborn pristine skin?

The power to regenerate

Considered as the most powerful regenerating ingredient of the cosmetic industry today, Life Plankton™ is the go to ingredient you should implement in your skincare routine when it comes to boosting cell renewal and getting glowing skin. If you’re looking for an efficient way to treat your dull skin in depth, Life Plankton™ Elixir is an intense healing treatment that contains a high concentration (5%) of Life Plankton™, as well as hyaluronic acid, a unique formula that will defend, soothe and regenerate your skin. When you apply the serum, give the areas of your face that are prone to fine lines or dullness – the forehead and cheekbones – some extra attention by massaging the product at a slow pace to stimulate the skin’s mechanism for regeneration. Its non-sticky, transformative texture penetrates deeply into your skin to restore firmness, vitality and heal the first signs of aging.

A unique way to transform the eye contour

The eye contour is a particularly fragile part of our face so using a powerful ingredient to treat and heal it is a must! Enriched with the miraculous Life Plankton™, Life Plankton™ Eye regenerates the skin around the eyes, smoothes out wrinkles and fine lines, and improves firmness. Signs of fatigue and aging fade away leaving a dewy, renewed and bright looking eye contour!

An instant relief for sensitive skin

Sometimes our skin needs more than soothing, it needs healing. That’s when you need the regenerating power of Life Plankton™. Infused at 5%, the highest concentration in Life Plankton™, Life Plankton™ Sensitive Emulsion neutralizes the redness, itching and discomfort of highly sensitive skin. Day after day, this fundamental hydrating care with a fluid texture makes your skin stronger and less reactive to daily life aggressions. Dryness, tightness, heating sensations are reduced leaving your skin beautiful, healthy and reinforced!

If you are looking for immediate relief to your extremely dry and sensitive skin, Life Plankton™ Sensitive Balm will nourish your sensitive skin layers in depth to restore your skin’s protective barrier. Its rich balm texture envelops your skin leaving it intensely nourished, softer and suppler. Signs of skin sensitivity are strongly diminished, and your skin is soothed and strengthened from within.

A booster for radiance

When the signs of your over-scheduled life start to show on your skin, you need the ultimate rescuer: Life Plankton™ Mask. Its fresh hydrogel overnight mask texture wraps your skin to intensely repair it, soothe it and recreate bounce. Apply twice a week before going to bed and you’ll wake up to a smoother, renewed and healthy rosy glowing skin!
