I love French brands, I simply do, don’t ask me why. They have something luxury, traditional; not a very rational explication, coming from me. But give me a break, I love them.
Biotherm was the first brand to use thermal plankton in their products. The name Biotherm is composed of “ Biologic “ and “ Thermal “. This implies that many of their active/benficial ingrdients come from the sea, water springs and other sources.
Their SUN RANGE is IMPRESSIVE. From cream to lotion, from mist to oil, every texture is available is several protection categories, going from SPF 15 to SPF 50.
FLUIDE SOLAIRE WET OR DRY SKIN SPF 30 can, as the name implies, being used on both WET and DRY skin. Wet meaning water, perspiration etc. Biotherm does point out, however, that new application is a must afther swimming or perspiring.
