Sebium: Oily and problematic skin types
White Objective: Pigmentation and brightening care for sensitive skin

How can I tell if Sensibio is the right range for me?
Look out for skin redness, rashes, swelling, itchiness and irregular texture.
How does skin become sensitive?
Skin is either temporarily sensitized or permanently sensitive. This is because our complexions become less resistant when in contact with daily irritants, creating a fragile skin that needs extra care. To preserve a sensitized and sensitive skin type, the epidermis needs to be protected and strengthened to increase tolerance levels against aggressors and harmful particles.
Loved by beauty experts and sensitive skin sufferers worldwide, Bioderma’s Sensibio range is the perfect routine for sensitized, intolerant, allergic and redness-prone skin. Their unique D.A.F patent®, which stands for Dermatological Advanced Formulation is infused within every Sensibio product to ensure your skin benefits from maximum care during your skincare routine.
Top Product Pick: Sensibio H2O – Micelle Solution
A modern day skincare icon that’s sold every 2 seconds worldwide, the Sensibio H20 is the 1st and only dermatological micellar water perfectly compatible with the skin. An everyday essential for all sensitive skin, its gentle formula contains similar phospholipids of the skin cell membranes, which naturally help rebuild the skin’s tolerance and hydrolipidic film. The alcohol and soap-free base of this micellar water soothes redness, prevents irritation and removes even the most stubborn of waterproof mascara.
How can I tell if Hydrabio is the right range for me?
Look out for discomfort whilst cleansing, makeup not lasting and dehydration lines appearing around the eye contour.
What causes dehydrated skin?
Dehydrated skin is a condition and not a skin type. This can be due to a combination of a hectic lifestyle and environmental irritants which cause our skin to lose its natural glow and become weakened. Whether you have temporary or permanent dehydration, to rehydrate, the skin needs help generating water and nutrients within its depths, as this an essential to the skin’s natural balance and its ability to retain water at its surface.
Perfect for the times where your skin tends to become a little dryer, Bioderma’s Hydrabio ticks all the boxes when it comes to boosting your skin’s hydration levels and restoring comfort and balance back to a thirsty skin. Its replenishing range features the complex Aquagenium®, which penetrates deeper than ever before for instant and long-term hydration.
Top Product Pick: Hydrabio H2O – Micelle Solution
A must-have cleanser for those that find that their skin feels dry and tight after cleansing, the Hydrabio H2O instantly removes impurities and make-up, whilst stimulating your skin’s moisture levels. Ultra-mild and refreshing, this gentle cleanser respects the fragility of sensitive skin whilst locking in hydration.
How can I tell if Sebium is the right range for me?
Look out for irregular breakouts and oily areas.
How do we get problematic skin?
Whether your blemishes are frequent or irregular, or you’re going through puberty or adult acne, combination and blemished skin types produce greater amounts of sebum, which results in blocked pores and the appearance of blackheads. This overproduction of oil makes the skin’s barrier become weak, creating a complexion that is actually dehydrated and vulnerable. For your skin to regain clarity and radiance, your sebum quality and levels have to return to a normal state for your complexion to become balanced.
Treating all of the side effects of combination skin and blemishes, Bioderma’s Sebium range directly targets your oil secretions. The unique patented Fluidactiv® complex works to clear pores and prevent breakouts and improve the purity of your sebum, whilst respecting your skin’s natural barrier.
Top Product Pick: Sebium H2O – Micelle Solution
More than micellar water, the Sebium H2O is tailored to the purifying needs of a decongested skin type. Featuring a mix of purifying agents, zinc gluconate and copper sulphate, your skin instantly feels clean and refreshed without using harsh water that may contribute to temporary dehydration.
How can I tell if White Objective is the right range for me?
Look out for dark spots, brown spots and uneven skin tone.
How do you get pigmentation?
Acclerated by sun exposure, pregnancy, pollution, ageing and scars, pigmentation revolves around your skin’s natural melanin production. These external and internal factors cause the skin to produce more melanin, creating localised brown spots and areas of discolouration.
Suitable for even the most sensitive of skin types that suffer from hyperpigmentation, White Objective offers immediate efficacy and a high tolerance when catering to the needs of a fragile complexion. A pleasure to use, this overall brightening skincare collection banishes areas of discolouration whilst giving your skin lasting results.
Top Product Pick: White Objective Lightening Serum
A huge customer favourite, the White Objective Serum is an overnight concentrate that biologically corrects and prevents pigmentation whilst you sleep, using the powers of an exclusive W.O.® patent and vitamin C, this glow-boosting serum creates visible clarity by morning.
How can I tell if Atoderm is the right range for me?
Look out for scaly, cracked skin, swollen areas and lack of sleep due to itching.
What is the difference between dehydrated and dry skin types?
Dry skin needs to be treated completely different to dehydrated skin, as dry skin is a skin type that’s due to a lack of water, oil and lipids in the outermost layer of the skin. For a dry skin to feel comfortable and hydrated, the skin’s barrier needs to be biologically restored and for the skin to regain its natural strength and fulfil its protective role.
This is where Atoderm comes to the rescue, suitable for all atopic skin disorders like eczema and dermatitis, this reparative range gently replenishes lost lipids in the skin to restore comfort and moisture back into weakened areas of skin with their exclusive Lipigenium® complex.
Top Product Pick: Atoderm Intensive Ultra-Soothing Balm
Perfect for all of the family to use on dry, irritated areas, the Atoderm balm is a 2-in-1 skin-strengthening treatment that restores balance and comfort back into the skin. Infused with the Lipigenium™ complex that’s made up of biolipids that are naturally present in the epidermis, both instant relief and comfort are immediately restored.
What can you use Cicabio for?
Tattoo healing, bites, post skin laser treatment, sunburn, and after using harsh skincare treatments.
How does Cicabio help the healing process?
When the skin becomes damaged, irritated skin is more susceptible to further stress from irritants and external factors, therefore your skin needs a re-enforced boost of repair to protect and accelerate the healing process after any harm or injury has occurred.
Using the powers of the Antalgicine® patent, Bioderma’s Cicabio instantly relieves the itching and burning urges that come with non-oozing lesions, creating a protective barrier that speeds up the healing process whilst keeping your irritation soothed and calmed.
Top Product Pick: Cicabio Soothing Repair Cream
A must-have for your bathroom cabinet; the Bioderma Cicabio Soothing Repair Cream is the ultimate fail-safe for any flare-ups that require instant care. Combining protective elements of resveratrol and copper to aid skin regeneration, the clever Copper-Zinc complex inhibits bacterial proliferation, while Bioderma’s innovative Antalgicine® Complex rapidly relieves the sensation of discomfort and reduces the urge to scratch.
