The brand

Founded at the end of the 1970s by a family of cosmetic care experts, Biologique Recherche is the result of the passionate work of biologist, Yvan Allouche and his physiotherapist wife, Josette Allouche.

This exclusive methodology of personalised cosmetic care, adapted to each Instant de Peau©, has been elaborated based on products containing highly concentrated active ingredients. Biologique Recherche therefore operated as a research and development unit dedicated solely to formulating products for professionals who were disappointed with the existing ones.


Our methodology is based on 40 years of experience and relies on unique, personalised care protocols adapted to each individual’s Instant de Peau©. There are three fundamental stages in the face, body, and hair treatments, which are suitable for both men and women.

1. The evaluation stage Analyses your skin’s specific needs.

2. The preparation stage: Prepares and balances the skin.

3. The treatment stage: Targets each skin issue for in-depth treatment.

The creators’ work continues to evolve through teams that are both passionate and keen to preserve the intellectual heritage of a family business. Striving for change without forgetting the company’s origins is what shapes Biologique Recherche; respecting the personalised methodology and products while preserving its authenticity and pursuing innovation to support clients in an increasingly personalised manner.
