Our story began in the 1970s, when Jean-Noël Thorel, a pioneer pharmacist, came up with a radically different approach to dermocosmetics, thanks to his privileged exchanges with the world’s top biology and dermatology experts. He developed its first patents and established the
foundations of the BIODERMA philosophy: biology at the service of dermatology.
This has been the common thread in the formulation of BIODERMA products since the beginning. Thus the BIODERMA mission was born: biology at the service of dermatology and dermatology at the service of health.
A trailblazer, BIODERMA has acquired unique expertise. It employs a scientific approach based on understanding the skin and its biological mechanisms, so as to create products that are directly inspired by these natural processes.
