The Background of Biologique Recherche
Biologique Recherche began with a passion to write a unique and visionary page in the history of skin care. Founded thirty years ago by biologist Yvan and his wife Josette Allouche whose background is in physiotherapy. Their son, Dr Phillip Allouche is a clinical Doctor, and took over the creative side of the Biologique Recherche, from his father. With a family wealth of expert knowledge and dedication and passion to skincare, Biologique Recherche has become an internationally acclaimed holistic and effective approach to skincare.
Today, the Biologique Recherche Methodology has a reputation for astounding effectiveness based on a clinical approach to beauty care using intentionally pure, concentrated, raw ingredients, as well as innovative and meticulous protocols and procedures.
The Ethos of Biologique Recherche
Biologique Recherche’s unique approach is akin to EF MEDISPA’s ‘inner wellbeing and outer beauty’ philosophy. At EF MEDISPA we are proud to offer our clients a range of skincare products, dedicatedly formulated in Paris and bespoke to your personal needs. Biologique Recherche very much believe that authenticity and harmony is behind the creation of each of their skincare products.
The Products of Biologique Recherche
Biologique Recherche’s products are formed using the most pure, concentrated and raw ingredients available to them.
Each skincare product in their extensive range contains a high concentration of botanical, biological and marine extracts, free of any artificial fragrance to ensure the integrity of the formula is preserved. Their fragrance free products lower the chances of you forming a reaction to the ‘cold’ formulation which is specifically designed to preserve the active ingredients packed inside.*
PREPARATION STAGE PRODUCTS
The Biologique Recherche cleansing milks are used in the first stage of every Biologique Recherche beauty care programme in the morning and then evening, removing all traces of make-up. The active ingredients in the cleansing milks initiate the beauty treatments and leave the skin soft and refreshed.
Choose from two different Cleansing Milks:
Lait U: Gently removes impurities and make-up, as well as protecting the skin’s natural barrier. It is a non-oily, fresh cleanser that protects the skin’s natural moisture levels. It is recommended for young and normal Skin Instants, as well as combination skin.

P50 Balancing Exfoliators
The P50 balancing exfoliators are the ‘hero’ products of the Biologique Recherche range; all Biologique Recherche skincare treatments start with the ‘P50 ritual’ in the morning and evening. Consisting of the P59, the P50W and the P50V these balancing exfoliators speed up the epidermis’ natural exfoliation process and the reconstruction of the skin’s natural barrier. The lotion also gently exfoliates the skin, regulates excess sebum, moisturises and helps maintain the epidermis’ acid pH. Choose from three different P50’s:
- P50: Gently exfoliates and balances the epidermis. Recommended for most skin types.
