Created in 2010 by Muriel and Jean Marc Dubois, Laboratoires de Biarritz are before all the realization of a human adventure.
A project that emerged thank to personal, family, and environmental concerns, and that aims at creating organic and innovative solar products with a high quality.
Driven by their beliefs and passionate about the ocean and surfing, they explored the Basque coast’s marine resources. Consequently, after a fundamental research phase, the scientific foundations were laid: design innovative products with real health benefits.
Laboratoires de Biarritz launched their first product line, Algamaris, certified organic sun protection products that hit the market in spring 2012. Algamaris has been hailed the next generation of sun protection, combining efficiency, real health benefits but also enjoyment and cosmetic benefits.
This alternative and passionate approach continues with the development of our skin care line in 2013. Laboratoires de Biarritz want to pursue their prevention strategy. Tracing our way on the path of innovation, the team has created and developed a line based around weather conditions with a new approach to the use of cosmetics. Prevention is based on cytoprotection, prevention rather than cure for skin damage, because at any age, healthy skin is beautiful skin.
Inspired by nature, Laboratoires de Biarritz created solar products based on a double protection system. As an egg is protected by its shell and an intern membrane, our solar products provide a double answer against the harmful effects of the sun.
Searching for a skin optimum protection and a better environment respect, Laboratoires de Biarritz use only mineral screens. Mineral screens are very fine and micronised powders with a high coverage level: they form a thin protective layer on the skin that intercepts the sun’s rays.
These pigments are very well tolered and have the advantage of not causing side effects related to tolerance or toxicity:
- They are instantly active and protect from UVB, UVA, and HEV
- They are harmless, contrary to chemical filters
- Without nanoparticles
- Ecological, non-polluting, and don’t alter the marine ecosystem
The skin is naturally able to prevent and repair cutaneous damage caused by a brief exposure (ex: intensification of the cutaneous pigmentation, thickening of the stratum corneum…).
Our principle active, Alga-gorria®, supports this natural activity in neutralizing free radicals in order to protect cells in avoiding their alteration caused by sun’ rays. By helping cell natural defenses and slowing down skin ageing, Alga-gorria® is a unique active principle of prevention.
The Meteologic line is built on four basic principles that help the skin to adapt to all weather conditions. Well prepared skin is able to defend itself, adapt and react better.
1. A self-defence system for strengthened skin
Firstly, a selection of active ingredients improves the skin’s protection against various damaging factors (pollution, stress, wind, sudden changes in temperature, etc.). These active ingredients have been selected to stimulate and enhance the skin’s natural self-defence capabilities.
Furthermore, this strategy based around weather conditions is complemented by a dual texture approach for daytime skin care. The fluid has a lightweight, non-greasy texture, which leaves the skin soft and hydrated in hot or humid weather. In cold and dry weather, the rich and smooth texture of the cream leaves your skin supple and comfortable throughout the day.
2. Unique anti-radical prevention thanks to our exclusive active principle, Alga-gorria®:
The patented active ingredient prevents skin ageing by effectively neutralizing free radicals.
The antioxidant power of Alga-gorria® has been determined using the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity)* method, which allows us to measure the extract’s ability to absorb free radicals.
3. Intelligent hydration for rebalanced skin:
Natural rehydration of the skin thanks to the careful selection of additional active ingredients to complement our main active ingredient.
4. Organic certification:
A simple, effective and unique formula free from unnecessary ingredients. Ingredients have been carefully selected for their perfectly safe and gentle properties.
