SINGAPORE--16 Mar--PRNewswire/InfoQuest
ON THE OCCASION OF ASIA MICROBIOME R&D CONGRESS
Biotherm hosted the first "Biotherm Healing Summit" on March 7. A symposium on the theme of skin & healing, focusing on major research that has evidenced the link between micro-organisms and skin health.

Unveiling Life PlanktonTM, the healing miracle upon which the company was established, Biotherm proudly presented an impressive collection of 100 scientific proofs developed in partnership with internationally renowned research centers that demonstrate the power of Life PlanktonTM to improve skin accumulated over a 30-year period.

Biotherm adds a new chapter to skin health and knowledge with the first Biotherm Healing Summit, with a distinct focus on the world of Microbiomes. This ever-growing industry offers a promising prospect to improve human health, as improving technology allows for the development of microbiota in a variety of ways. Due to this reason, microbiome research is set to make waves in the science and medical world through its applications in preventive treatments, therapies, cures and supplements.

Linked to the Microbiome concept, the rare Life PlanktonTM is the basal component of all Biotherm formulas. Long fabled to heal wounded warriors in Roman times, the fountain was rediscovered after World War Two in the French Pyrenees. After three decades of scientific study, the natural organisms found in the sulfuric thermal waters were found to improve all skin types, from sebum control, to moisturization or tightening of pores - whatever the condition and at any age; reducing wrinkles and improving skin clarity, fighting loss of elasticity or acne.

THE STORY OF A HEALING MIRACLE

The story begins in one of the most preserved parts of Europe: The French Pyrenees. In this miraculous place, the legends tell that roman warriors came to bathe after battle – called the Healing Fountain. In 1952, Jos Jullien, an army doctor, who spent his life leading a quest for the perfect healing treatment, cracked the mystery behind the Fountain. An extraordinary and unique living ingredient: Life PlanktonTM. With the dream of making the properties of Life PlanktonTM available to everyone, his works led to the creation of Biotherm.

Inspired by Jos Jullien's ambition, it took a team of dedicated scientist eight years to recreate the extraordinary natural conditions of the Healing Fountain and to develop a unique state of the art bio-fermentation process called Fermogenesis(TM). Over a period of up to 90 days, Life PlanktonTM is slowly processed in a controlled environment, combined with a cocktail of minerals, vitamins, sugars, plant & yeast extract to maximize its potential, allowing Life Plankton(TM) to grow 1,000 times faster and concentrated up to 400,000 times more than its natural state. Thanks to this purposeful process, Life PlanktonTM is the completely natural and renewable ingredient that is at the core of Biotherm Life PlanktonTM products, with the highest concentration found in the "Life Plankton Serum 5% ".
