Hello Joanna,

You recommended the Placenta line from Biologique Recherche, and I love the products. I went to re-order them and saw that they are no longer available and have been replaced with Iso-Placenta. What exactly is this and is it as effective as the original?

Biologique Recherche has replaced the main biological active ingredient in Crème Placenta and Serum Placenta with a biotechnological one (biomimetic placenta). Because the new ingredient is bio-mimicking placenta polypeptides, the prefix ISO was added to the previous name, it comes from Ancient Greek and means equal. These products have been proven to be as effective as the original formulas.

Biologique Recherche Crème Iso-Placenta
Biologique Recherche Crème Iso-Placenta is an intensive repairing face cream that activates cell renewal to rebuild the epidermis damaged by acne and provides the skin with all the nutrients needed by stimulating human placenta properties.

It is the newest formula that reinforces the regenerative action of the original Creme Placenta thanks to a combination of new and improved highly active ingredients.

Biologique Recherche Crème Iso-Placenta nourishes, and repairs skin damage caused by the sun, acne breakouts and other environmental factors. It provides intense reconstruction for weakened and damaged skin, reduces pigment imperfections, energizes, and hydrates the top layers of the epidermis to help with skin elasticity.

The new Creme Iso-Placenta is specifically formulated to address all these issues with an innovative new biomimetic placenta ingredient. The new formula is 100% Vegan, 100% Cruelty Free and 100% Plant Based.

Key Ingredients: Regenerating platform: Biomimetic placenta, Maracuja oil, Centella Asiatica extract, Vitamin B3. Revitalizing platform: Yeast extract, Specific Biologique Recherche Phyto-Complex, Stabilized Vitamin C 

Biologique Recherche Serum Iso-Placenta
Biologique Recherche Serum Iso-Placenta serum has a specific regenerating action on acne-prone skins. It rebuilds skin that has been damaged by acne. It reduces existing blemishes while improving the skin’s quality.

On one hand, Serum Iso-Placenta stimulates the key markers involved in the mechanisms of epidermal restoration to promote skin's restructuration and correct its microrelief. On the other hand, it soothes the skin to reduce redness due to skin inflammation.

The serum’s unique combination of 3 active ingredients stimulates the skin’s natural healing process. The core of its formula contains Biomimetic Placenta, which mimics the composition of placenta to provide the skin with all the growth factors its needs to rebuild. The Carob seed and Scotch Thistle extracts boost this regenerating action with complementary action mechanisms aimed at stimulating the cellular differentiation process, to help repair the various skin layers.

It helps lessen the appearance of old and new traces of acne. The skin is regenerated and smoother, the complexion is unified. Weakened skin regains its original appearance.
