OUR HERITAGE

Collaboration between experts

In the 1960’s, a French and a German doctor, Drs. Albert BEAUFOUR Willmar SCHWABE, start an extensive research on a tree that has adapted to the most precarious conditions for over 250 million years: the Ginkgo Biloba.

 

Venerated in China since the beginning of time for its extraordinary ability to resist extreme conditions the Ginkgo Biloba has proven its ability to fight off bacteria, urban and industrial pollution, survive atomic blast and it defeating time.

 

In the 1970’-s, they year of research pay off when Dr. BEAUFOUR launches the first medicine using the exceptional properties of the Ginkgo Biloba leaf.

 

In the 1990s, he takes a leap forward and brings his pharmaceutical discovery into the cosmetic world, helped by a high-power team : Francois GRANOTIER, in charge of diversification, Philippe GERBAULT, pharmacist, Christine POELMAN, from the Faculty of Pharmacy at University of Paris V and Luc BENICHOU, in charge of scientific communication.

 

The BIOSCREEN Laboratories are created in 1996, after a great deal of in-depth research on the active principles of the Ginkgo Biloba leaf and the discovery of a unique extract: Ginkgo Flavone 40. This extract is the principal active ingredient used in the first 3 BIOSCREEN dermocosmetic treatments which are launched in 1997.

EXCLUSIVE DISCOVERY: GINKGO FLAVONE 40

The four major actions of Ginkgo Flavone 40

  1. ANTI-FREE RADICAL

    It captures free radicals, which are the main factors behind cutaneous ageing.

     

  2. VASO-REGULATOR

    It regulates cutaneous microcirculation and reduces sensitivity of fragile and assaulted skin.

     

  3. ACTIVATES COLLAGEN SYTHESIS

    It stimulates the synthesis of collagen and improves cutaneous firmness.

     

  4. ANTI-ELASTASIS ACTIVITY

    It protects elastin fibers and the collagen network, and prevents them from deteriorating.

     

The BIOSCREEN Laboratories have developed a new standardized Ginkgo leaf extract, which is unique in the world: the Ginkgo Flavone 40. The only extract, with a 40% flavonoid content, it was exclusively developed for use in dermocosmetic products. It is a genuine plant-based protective screen that is surprisingly effective in protecting and repairing the skin.

 

Perfectly innocuous and highly active even in low concentrations, it is the main and principal natural active ingredients used in all BIOSCREEN products.
