Skin By ASK X Biologique Recherche Paris

Over 40 years ago Biologique Recherche was born out of passion for helping others look and feel their best. Biologique Recherche was founded in 1978 as a cosmetics research lab by biologist Yvan Allouche and his wife Josette, a physiotherapist. At first, BR’s focus was on scientific research and development to create formulations for professionals dissatisfied with existing products but since then, with their son Dr. Philippe Allouche, who is now the brand’s Creative Director, has transformed BR into a pharmaceutical icon of the global beauty and wellness industries.

Dr. Allouche’s background in internal medicine formed his holistic wellness based approach to the science of beauty and skincare and is known for his out of the box vision of building better skin. Together, the Allouche family combined their scientific medical knowledge and passion for helping others to create a unique visionary brand that looks at the skin in an innovative way. The brand’s philosophy is to not look at generic skin types but take an integrative approach by analyzing your Skin Instant®, which is the core of the BR brand.

“Our skin’s condition changes several times a single day as well as during the course of our lifetimes. Everyone has a different Skin Instant® which can evolve during the course of one day. The artificial categorization of skins as normal, dry or oily provides a poor psychological definition of a skin’s condition and only gives a stationary image of the epidermal cosmetic imbalances. External factors like climate, temperature, air-conditioning, tobacco, pollution, and internal factors like stress, hormones, hygiene and age affect the skin. Biologique Recherche’s Methodology addresses all these factors and how they evolve when it treats the epidermis. This is why we talk of Skin Instant®. Biologique Recherche professionals are trained to analyze all these variables and advise the women and men on the treatment that is best suited to their Skin Instant®.”, says Dr Allouche. This very principle makes BR the only skincare company to look at the skin with this integrative wellness based approach to determine the right skincare treatment course for your set of DNA. 

With this highly personalized methodology and pharmaceutical grade formulas Biologique Recherche is able to give you the tools to take care of your skin and give it the attention it needs over time. Formulated and made in France, BR creates and produces the products in-house from the brand’s laboratory under strict quality control and EU regulations. Using a cold pressed technology format, you can think of the products as you would a fresh pressed juice – this helps preserve the natural structure and integrity of the active ingredients for maximum efficacy and the ability to use the highest concentration of active ingredients possible to feed your skin the nutrition it needs. No perfumes, fragrances, parabens or commonly known irritants are added as they can weaken active ingredients and can cause allergic reactions. Read more about BR’s principle of formulation here
