Biotherm originated from mineral water. In early 20th century, the French biologist Mme Jeanine Marissal discovered mineral thermal spring waters under Pyrenees mountain in the southern part of France which contained thermal plankton, supposedly a key to healthy skin and a potent skin rejuvenator. She applied for intellectual property rights on this discovery. In 1952, intellectual property rights was acquired and she used it in skin care products. Thus, therm in Biotherm comes from thermal plankton, an ingredient found in all Biotherm products. Bio comes from the profession of the founder biologist.
One of Biotherm's biggest commitments is the protection of the water and nature. Water Lovers is Biotherm’s action platform – on an internal and external level – to help protect the Planet’s waters, both a source and an inspiration for our unique skincare products upon which all life depends – the Planet’s blue heart.
