Biologique Recherche was founded by
a French family who are 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 to
bring the latest unique products into the
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 that respects the skin’s structure
and physiology in order to ensure the best
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 targets
a client’s individual needs, making Biologique
Recherche the choice of brand 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 percent
in most products. The company chooses the
highest quality active ingredients available
and cold-processed formulations to preserve
their structure. Finally, to preserve the integrity
of our products and decrease the chance of
allergic reactions, fragrances are not used.
