The order of the bases can change from one individual to another. These genetic variations can have a significant impact on our body. It is these variations that determine, for example, your eye colour, your ability to metabolise fat, the characteristics of your skin, and a multitude of other aspects. SNPs (single-nucleotide polymorphisms) are what makes us unique and different from one another. Two decades of research and thousands of scientific studies have allowed researchers to better understand how these variations impact your skin.
Today, thanks to DNA sequencers, Biologique Recherche can analyze more than 600,000 genetic variations within your genome.
DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is a long molecule found in every cell of the human body. This molecule is composed of nucleotides, the famous four bases A, T, G and C. Genetic information is organized into genes, and all the genes together constitute the genome. Finally, the DNA is found in the nuclei of our cells, in the form of 23 pairs of chromosomes.
By closely screening these variations using powerful computer algorithms, we can assess certain characteristics of your skin. More specifically, these analysis allow us to determine your genetic cutaneous predispositions.
MY BEAUTY DNA
A total of 14 skin characteristics are studied and grouped into four major families: ageing, sensitivity to the sun, sensitivity to the environment, and the cutaneous profile
The level of predisposition which may be low, medium or high depending on your genome, is determined for each of these traits. Understanding your genetic predispositions will help you to better understand your skin’s "inherited" needs, and thus, adapt your choice of cosmetic products to best protect your skin*.

Doing a DNA analysis can explain up to 60% of factors affecting your skin condition. The remainder can be explained by a visual diagnosis that will assess the effects of your lifestyle, your home, and your habits in terms of skincare and products. This study will offer predictive and preventive information that a simple visual or even measured analysis will never be able to provide. Both approaches (DNA and visual analysis) are complementary in providing a complete overview of your skin condition.
You can share these results with your Biologique Recherche beautician who will be able to hone and adapt her recommendations in terms of skincare and products.
