About Biologique Recherche
Lotion P50 PIGM 400 is the latest formulation of the P50 line, formulated by the French skincare brand Biologique Recherche. The company has been doing clean beauty way before the term even existed, which is something to note. Founded in the 1970s, the brand has always been known for using the highest quality and most efficacious ingredients available in the market. Everything is made without silicone, paraben, fragrances, and sulfates.
Every formula comprises at least 20 percent natural actives, mixed without heat as much as possible. The brand isn’t very fond of ‘skin types’ when creating products. They have estheticians who work one-on-one with the clients to prescribe custom regimens tailored to individual skin concerns. You can’t get your hands on these products without proper consultation. Essentially, it will prevent you from making any skincare disasters.
The Science Behind Lotion P50 PIGM 400
Lotion P50 PIGM 400 is enriched with the exfoliating active ingredients of the P50 and the brightening agents and antioxidants of the PIGM 400 range. The fortified epidermis fulfills its protective functions entirely while enhancing the self-regeneration potential. The product is a unique acid toner. Think of it as the fruit of 30 years of reflection. The balancing and exfoliating lotion gently speed up the epidermis’ natural exfoliation process.
Moreover, it also reconstructs the epidermal shield. With regular use, you can expect to simultaneously exfoliate, purify, regenerate, and maintain the pH of the epidermis. The topical application of hydroxy acids does all the chemical exfoliation needed. The potent combo of AHA, BHA, and PHA exfoliants: lactic acid, malic acid, citric acid, salicylic acid, and gluconolactone, work wonders as a chemical exfoliator. As the name suggests, this exfoliating toner gently renews the skin over 50 days.
