La Biosthetique





Founded by Parisian bio-chemist Marcel Contier in 1947, La Biosthetique was born from the passion to create hair and beauty products from natural pure ingredients which work in harmony with our own bio-chemistry.

With its heart and soul in Paris and its state-of-the-art laboratories in Germany, La Biosthetique blends luxury Parisian service with German technology for the most effective, exquisite and exclusive products in the hair and beauty industry.

As a La Biosthetique exclusive salon, Couture Hair & Beauté carries exclusively La Biosthetique product ranges for haircare, skincare, hair colour and make up.  Our stylists can consult with you and recommend a customised beauty regime to keep you looking gorgeous between visits.

Our holistic service experience of rituals and treatments, customised for each individual, is core to La Biosthetique service philosophy. Following the Total Beauty Ritual our stylist will help you unwind and transform your service in a relaxing experience.

Animal Safety

ANIMAL TESTING: La Biosthetique strictly forbids animal testing for any of our products.

ANIMAL PRODUCTS: La Biosthetique products don’t contain any part of animals, however they may contain some animal derivatives such as beeswax (our lipsticks) or keratin and lanolin (from sheeps wool).

The production and testing process

Following Marcel Contier’s finding and passion for bio-chemistry, La Biosthetique products work in biological balance with our bodies. This is why the use of natural and nature-identical ingredients are always a priority. The use of chemical ingredients is highly regulated in the European Union and thus guarantees high standard of safety in all products.

La Biosthetique products are carefully procured and rigorously tested in their own state-of-the-art laboratories in the foothills of the Black Forest in Germany. La Biosthetique products are scientifically tested and dermatologically confirmed by institutes for independent testing in cooperation with university clinics using voluntary testers. Finally, after each and every product meets it’s native EU standard, it undergoes a final examination by the Australian Government’s Department of Heath (NICNAS) before it arrives to you.

Environmental responsibility

RENEWABLE ENERGY: La Biosthetique global head office is run on green electricity.

CARBON FOOTPRINT: La Biosthetique has a carbon-neutral footprint through Europe.

RECYCLING: La Biosthetique bottles are recyclable wherever possible. Plastics are divided into 7 categories and recycling them depends on your council. Simply look at the bottom of the product bottle to find which type of plastic is used (i.e. PET or PP) and check with your council.

RESPONSIBLE SOURCING: Many of La Biosthetique products rely on ‘controlled agriculture’ meaning that the way in which the ingredient is grown and harvested is sustainable. This covers many oils such as sunflower oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, etc. We also support fair trade for some of our ingredients.

BIO-DEGRADABLE: All natural ingredients are bio-degradable. A lot of our synthetic ingredients are bio-degradable as well because of their bio-mimetic properties. Parabens, benzoic acid and natrium benzoate are for example synthetic but nature-identical and thus not harmful for the environment.
