Biotherm is a French luxury skin care company owned by L'Oreal under the Luxury Products division. Biotherm was acquired by L'Oreal in 1970. It is developed and manufactured in research laboratories in Monaco, under the direction of biologist Lucien Aubert and his team of researchers.Biotherm originated from mineral water. In early 19th century, the French biologist Mme Jeanine MARISSAL discovered mineral thermal spring waters under Pyrenees mountain in the southern part of France which contained thermal plankton, supposedly a key to healthy skin and a potent skin rejuvenator. He applied for intellectual property rights on this discovery. In 1952, intellectual property rights was acquired and he used it in skin care products.
