Biologique Recherche was founded by
a French family of passionate skincare
experts. Today, it is owned by Rupert Schmid,
Pierre-Louis Delapalme and Dr Philippe
Allouche, son of the founders. They remain
loyal to the brand’s founding principles, ensuring
the transmission of its unique methodology
and results-driven personalised approach.
Main products and services
The company’s R&D team is driven by bringing
the latest unique products to market. The
most recent innovation to be introduced by
Biologique Recherche is La Grande Crème,
inspired by the latest discoveries in epigenetics.
La Grande Crème is a world first in professional
skincare. Biologique Recherche also provides
spas with communication and marketing tools
that help them develop their businesses.
Biologique Recherche’s best asset is its
personalised methodology, which combines
powerful products and effective treatment
procedures with respect for the skin’s structure
and physiology, in order to ensure results.
It took 40 years to build this rigorous,
complex methodology and it can only be
passed on through intensive training. The
company’s highly customised solutions target a client’s individual needs, making Biologique
Recherche the brand of choice for the most
discerning clientele. The unique manufacturing process is one of the main reasons for the
effectiveness of the formulations; there is no
mass production and every batch receives
great attention. Biologique Recherche’s
products contain a high concentration of
botanical, marine and biological active
ingredients – over 20 per cent in most
products. The company chooses the highest
quality active ingredients available and
coldprocessed formulations to preserve their
structure. Finally, to preserve the integrity
of our products and decrease the chance of
allergic reactions, fragrances are not used.
