Our story can be traced back to the Middle Ages when women journeyed to the thermal springs in the Pyrenees. After each bath in the ‘fountain of youth’, their skin was softer, smoother, rejuvenated. The legend also says that Gallo-Roman warriors used to heal their wounds after battles in the thermal springs of the French Pyrenees. In the 1950s - the springs had become a thermal station - when Dr. Jos Jullien observed a curious phenomenon, an extraordinary substance on the surface of the baths. Analysis finally revealed the secret source of the springs' regenerating powers: Life planktonTM. Dr. Jullien realized Life planktonTM's incredible skin affinity and its enormous potential as a skincare ingredient, and Biotherm was born.
