2023 marked the 50th milestone anniversary of the iconic Biologique Recherche Lotion P50, and the celebration continues into 2024!
Why has Lotion P50 been dubbed “the best beauty product in the world”?
Because it truly transforms skin. We’ve known this fact ever since Paul Labrecque discovered Lotion P50 25-years ago, and it's been a "skincare love affair" ever since that first Biologique Recherche Facial in 1998. Paul Labrecque is proud to be the Original Biologique Recherche Skincare Spa in the United States. From the beginning we knew there was something special about this product, and the amazing team behind the brand: Dr Yvan, Josette and Dr. Phillip Allouche. Today, Lotion P50 enjoys cult status among skincare enthusiasts, celebrities, and beauty editors around the world. Lotion P50 is formulated with a unique blend of acids, including lactic acid, salicylic acid, and citric acid. These acids help to exfoliate skin, unclog pores, and improve texture and tone. Dr. Allouche and his Research and Development team have spent decades perfecting the formula, and it remains Biologique Recherche's most popular product. Today,Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 is available in 8 different customized formulas for face, hair + scalp and body, perfectly tailored for your unique skin type and condition.
Phenol or No Phenol?
Dr. Allouche’s father started producing the original formula, now called 1970, in the 1970s. While P50 is the tentpole of the brand, the 1970 formula contains phenol, a compound that is no longer used in personal care products in Europe, but is still used in the United States. Phenol is an exfoliant and numbing agent that also has antimicrobial qualities. Devotees of the original formula swear by it. Today, 2 of the 6 Lotion P50s for the face contain phenol: Lotion P50 1970 and Lotion P50V 1970. Those that choose not to use phenol have 4 other Lotion P50 choices that are formulated to address their specific skin type.
