In the 1960s, a French doctor, Dr. Albert BEAUFOUR and a German doctor, Dr. Willmar SCHWABE, shared a common enthusiasm for a tree that has adapted to the most precarious conditions for over 250 million years of the Ginkgo biloba.
Since the beginning of time, this tree has been venerated in China for its extraordinary ability to resist extreme conditions proving its ability to fight off bacteria, urban and industrial pollution. It has even survived the atomic bomb and continues to defeat time.
In the 1970s, their collaboration bore its fruit when Dr. BEAUFOUR began marketing the first medication formulated with the exceptional properties of the Ginkgo biloba leaf.
In the 1990s, they decided to take a leap forward and began collaborating with a high powered team from the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry: Francois GRANOTIER, in charge of diversification, Philippe GERBAULT, pharmacist, Christine POELMAN, from the “Facuite de Pharmacie de Paris V” (University of Paris V Pharmacy department) and Luc BENICHOU, in charge of scientific communication.
BIOSCREEN Laboratories was thus created in 1996, after a great deal of in-depth research carried out on the active principles of the Ginkgo biloba leaf and the discovery of a unique extract: Ginkgo Flavone 40. Following this discovery, BIOSCREEN became the first company to pioneer use of the Gingko Biloba extracts in skincare.The Gingko Flavone 40 extract was the principal active ingredient used in the first 3 BIOSCREEN dermocosmetic treatments that were launched in 1997. Since its foundation, the driving force to continue research on the tree and its benefits has been the search for essential mechanisms that protect, repair and care for your skin and enhance its energy and beauty.
Recognition of BIOSCREEN’s innovation came quickly, with the Prix Santé Beauté awarded both in 1999 and 2002 by the cosmetology committee of the esteemed SANTE Magazine in France.
FOUR MAJOR PROPERTIES
|1.||ACTIVATES COLLAGEN SYNTHESIS (SKIN STRUCTURE REINFORCED)
It stimulates the synthesis of collagen and reinforces the skin’s support fibers.
|2.||ANTI-FREE RADICAL (ANTI-AGING)
It captures free radicals, which are the main factors behind cutaneous aging.
|3.||VASO-REGULATOR (REGULATED CUTANEOUS MICRO CIRCULATION)
It regulates cutaneous microcirculation, protects the capillary walls and promotes nourishment in the skin tissues.
|4.||ANTI-ELASTASIS ACTIVITY (PROTECTION OF ELASTIN FIBERS)
It protects elastin fibers and the collagen network, and prevents them from deteriorating
BIOSCREEN Laboratories have developed a new standardized Ginkgo leaf extract, which is unique in the world: Ginkgo Flavone 40, the only extract, with a 40% flavonoid content, which 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 central and principal natural active ingredient used in all BIOSCREEN products.
