Biology at the service of dermatology, at the service of health

Peau atopique



BIODERMA is a NAOS brand that has been passionate about serving skin biology for 40 years. Our innovations and participation in dermatological breakthroughs to improve skin health have made us pioneering experts in dermatological care.


Because healthy skin should be accessible to everyone, we develop products for every individual, for all ages and skin types, drawing on our expertise in skin biology and our specialisation in dermatology.

Working alongside healthcare professionals from across the globe, our products are designed to preserve healthy-looking skin and provide tailored responses suited to every disfunction.  Reactive skin, dry to atopic-prone skin, acne-prone skin... We help all skin types to strengthen themselves, whatever their sensitivity or environment.

Designed to be practical and easy to use, our products take care of your skin and support it each day, for visible, lasting efficacy without compromising on respect for your skin.

BIODERMA relies on NAOS’s research and innovation network.

Each day, more than 80 international partners from elite universities, prestigious research centres and innovative start-ups work together with our teams in Aix-en-Provence.

Our knowledge and expertise in cutaneous biology is constantly growing thanks to this regular contact with the latest scientific advances in skin health, our understanding of healthy skin functions, and skin’s sensitivity, disfunctions, regeneration and everyday protection.

We work with healthcare professionals from across the globe who share our vision of ecobiology. Dermatologists, paediatricians, oncologists, hospital staff and pharmacists are all involved and enthusiastically take part in our research programmes.

Together, driven by the same approach, we attempt to better understand the origins of skin imbalances to pave the way for new dermatological innovations and to investigate revolutionary solutions. 

The constant progress made in this fundamental research enables us to better serve each individual’s skin and health, step by step.

Bioderma - experts community

Bioderma - women in laboratory

When developing our product innovations, we work hand in hand with doctors, dermatologists and skin experts.

Our relationships are based on being receptive, attentive and considerate, so that we can develop our formulas and formulations.

From the idea to the final product, including evaluating their efficacy and skin tolerance, BIODERMA calls upon independent experts and consumers to ensure that our products meet their needs. Whether it is through round tables or individual interviews, we strive to ensure that it is something that all our communities will embrace.

Because all skin is unique, BIODERMA takes care of it with a tailored response based on ecobiological principles.

At BIODERMA, we believe that perfectly cleansed skin is a prerequisite for healthy-looking skin. Proper cleansing is the first step to caring for skin, and optimises the efficacy of all cosmetic products. For us, cleansing skin is a way of taking care of it.

We therefore developed dermatological cleansing expertise that is second to none, which led to breakthrough innovations like Nodé shampooing in 1977 – the first ultra-gentle shampoo formulated with a non-detergent cleansing base. Not to mention the iconic Sensibio H2O, a truly innovative cleansing routine that addressed the needs of dermatologists looking for a cleanser that was not harsh on their patients’ skin. A pioneer, BIODERMA invented therefore the first micellar water on the market, a no-rinse cleansing product to deeply cleanse the most sensitive skin.

With essential everyday products to thoroughly cleanse skin and provide it with the hydration necessary.

Our care products include a patented natural complex, the DAF (Dermatological Advanced Formulation) which helps skin to become less reactive.

Bioderma - preserve healthy skin

We use international patents when developing our care products to provide targeted responses for each skin problem. Based on the principles of ecobiology that drive us, our patents act on the causes of these dysfunctions, going beyond the symptoms to help the skin reactivate its natural biological functions.

With some long-term illnesses (diabetes, cancer, kidney failure, etc.), the medications used can weaken skin and cause adverse cutaneous side effects. As an expert in both biology and dermatology, we develop products that are specifically formulated to counter these effects.

Bioderma - dermatological accompaniment

For more than 40 years, we have been developing concrete, effective solutions that are accessible to all and that simplify everyday life and help take better care of skin health.

Some of our breakthrough innovations




Shampooing Nodé

Shampooing Nodé was BIODERMA’s first ecobiological innovation.

The use of certain cleansing agents can alter the scalp’s protective film and generate imbalances. Created by NAOS research, Nodé is the first non-detergent cleansing process for the scalp and hair. Non-stripping, this gentle cleansing base effectively cleanses while preserving the hydrolipidic film on the skin’s surface to maintain its protective function. Hair is not damaged; its balance is respected.




MatriciumTM is a medical device that comprises only biomimetic ingredients, i.e. those that are naturally present in the skin. Its patented technology is the result of 14 years of cutaneous biology research, and is the first ecobiological environment for cell and tissue regeneration, designed to provide the skin with all the nutrients it needs.
