And so in 1952, French cosmetics company Biotherm was born. You’re probably wondering what this thermal plankton stuff is; it’s a water-dwelling microorganism, sourced from the thermal springs of the Pyrenees, that happens to be surprisingly similar in make-up to some of the key elements found in our own skin. Though now part of the prestigious L’Oréal Group’s portfolio, Biotherm (not to be confused with Bioderma) has stayed true to its water-faring roots. From deodorants to shaving foams, cellulite-busting body care to skin-soothing serums, Biotherm’s products are jam-packed with various blends of Pure Thermal Plankton, algae and cellular waters, all of which boast countless skin-beautifying benefits.
Or, slather on some of their iconic Biomains Age-Delaying Hand and Nail Treatment. This is a lightweight, yet super-nourishing, hand cream whose SPF 4 wards off sun damage. It was one of the first ever products to come out of Biotherm’s lab and is still a firm favourite amongst customers.

Now, it’s over to you. Are you already a fan of Biotherm products’ plankton-y goodness? Are they a brand you’ve heard of before? If not, do you think you’ll now be checking them out?
