Different Lotion P50 Formulations

We have 6 Lotion P50 formulations, which are ideal for specific skin types. Below is a comprehensive guide on the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 and how to apply them to different skin types.

Keratinized & Oily Skin

A keratinized skin is characterized by a thick or hardened outer layer of skin cells. This condition occurs when keratin, the protein that protects our skin from harsh environments, builds up in the pore and blocks the opening of growing hair follicles.

Oily skin occurs when the sebaceous glands in our skin excrete too much sebum. The symptoms of oily skin include occasional or persistent pimples, clogged pores and blackheads, and a shiny or greased appearance. Lotion P50 is highly recommended as an ideal treatment for keratinized and oily skin as the lotion slough away the dead skin cells that causes clogging and also regulates oil production.

Lotion P50 Description and How to Use It

Lotion P50, also known as P50 1970, is the classic or the original version formula. It is also the most popular and effective formula of P50. 1970 symbolizes the year it was first launched, while the letter "P" stands for potion or peeling.

The lotion exfoliates, hydrates, and regulates or balances the skin's pH. It's normal for your skin to have a tingling sensation or sting while using P50, especially when the epidermal PH is unbalanced. The lotion has active ingredients that penetrate deeper, which may also cause a tingling sensation. The feeling usually disappears once the PH balances.

Before using lotion P50, ensure you are completing these steps:

  1. Cleanse your skin thoroughly.
  2. Apply lotion P50 onto a clean cotton pad and gently apply it starting at the décolleté area to the neck and face while avoiding the eyes.
