” A cult favorite, P50 is a magic potion that does it all. Exfoliates, Hydrates, and Balances the pH of the skin, it’s a prep step before any skincare.” – Danuta Mieloch
We recommend P50 for everyone, even those with super sensitive skin (should use P50V a milder version). P50 “1970” is the most effective and most commonly used formula of P50. If you are still unsure which formula is most suitable for you please contact us so that we may assist you.
What is the connection between PH and good skin?
Epidermal PH is usually acid reflecting the good status of the natural moisturizing factor, and the acid mantle of the skin (anti-microbial shield and chemical protection screen). However, the epidermis PH may vary considerably during the day, suffering from different artifacts. Epidermal surface PH is difficult to monitor and not always the best parameter for assessing the health of epidermis.
What makes the skin tingle when using P50?
When the epidermis is unbalanced, patients feel the acidity of the solution, causing the skin-tingling sensation. Once you reach a balance, this sensation will disappear.
What is the meaning of the name P50?
The P can be used for potion or peeling (the first name of the product was Lotion P1970, then P50, P50V, and P50W were developed).
Sizes: 1.07 oz (Travel) / 5.1 oz. / 8.5 oz.
*We recommend P50 (sans phenol) while pregnant or breastfeeding. Please consult your doctor if you wish to continue using P50 1970 while pregnant or breastfeeding.
If you have any questions, or this is your first time using P50 please feel free to give us a call or email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Miriam Morales of Scripts of flair.com shares her experience with P50…
I’m really excited to be sharing this #beautypost with you guys! You know I’m a product junkie and love testing out new stuff. I’ve slowed down just a bit when it comes to skin care products though because I was (still am) trying to clear up my skin and get it to a healthy place again. Guys, I found something so amazing I just had to tell you all about it! Let me back up a bit…
There one too many occurrences where Biologique Recherche, a French exfoliating toner, was mentioned as a holy grail. Really? I was curious (obviously) and spent an entire week, every day, for HOURS reading reviews. I love reading reviews because they do help get a sense of what to expect with a product. Between Amazon.com and Rescue Spa almost every single review was positive…like, astonishingly positive. Only about 2% were negative. However, they all basically said the same four things: 1. the smell is horrendous, 2. it stings/burns a bit when applied on the skin, 3. it’s pricey, 4. there might be a purging phase. I’m not going to lie, the purging part if what freaked me out the most. I could not deal with more breakouts. But I decided to give it a shot anyway.
I got the P50 without phenol and they didn’t lie! This stuff is expensive. A 1.7oz bottle is $27, with shipping it came to $37. Since I was trying it out I got the smallest bottle to see how I’d like it. Yes, it stings but after awhile you get used to it. Yes, it smells bad, but who cares? You get used to that too. On the first day I only used it at night to see how my skin would react and then use twice daily. Well, well, well, the morning after…man, y’all don’t even know! I noticed a huge difference!. I couldn’t believe that with just one use what it did to my skin. A miracle I tell ya. My skin was noticeably a lot clearer. In under 2 weeks my blemishes and dark spots were clearing up. Those 1.7oz went quick! It was a must for me to continue using this toner so I ordered the next size up, 5.7 at $57 and with tax it came to $67. Told you it’s not cheap but it’s so worth every penny! The right side of my face was bad, like really, really, really, REALLY, bad. It is clear now and the dark spots are fading away. Even the large pores on my forehead that decided to take center stage are getting smaller and smaller. My makeup goes on more smoothly and just looks better period. And, I don’t feel like I need so much! Which is great because summer is right around the corner and I don’t like to wear too much makeup on my face in the blazing heat.
If it did all that in just under a month I can’t wait to see how my skin looks in 3 months. This product completely transformed my skin. I love it. Now that’s not to say that my tea tree oil and other organic natural stuff are dunzo, no, no, no. They’re still good for every now and then use like the days/mornings/evenings when I decide not to use my Biologique Recherche. Because I mean, the stuff is expensive and I’m trying to make it last!
The day I found out I was pregnant I made it my latest hobby. Like most new moms to
be I started my research. I looked into what foods to eat, the best exercises and yoga, coffee or no coffee; anything and everything to keep me and the baby healthy, safe, and happy. It can be rather overwhelming. When it came to skin care I realized I had to be mindful of what I was using, as whatever you put on your skin will be absorbed into your body and blood stream, and will find its way into your developing baby.
Your body is surging with hormones, which is producing a variety of changes. You
may see changes in your skin like you’ve never experienced. Therefor, your skin care
regimen will have to change to help your skin look and feel better. I highly recommend a nice cream cleanser by Biologique Recherche – Lait U. It will thoroughly cleanse your skin without stripping you of your natural oils. After cleansing, use the Cellcosmet Activator Gel, followed by the Cellcosmet Active Tonic Lotion. The combination of these two products will brighten and help balance the pH in your skin. Finishing off your regimen with Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre, a combination of natural active ingredients which is also paraben free. If you’re focusing on breakouts and oily combination skin, I recommend the original P-50, which is advised for women who are pregnant or nursing as it does not contain phenol. Follow this with Dermopurifiante from Biologique Recherche.
Last but not least, let’s not forget about your body. As your baby grows, so will your
baby bump. Your skin will become tight and itchy. What will help get you through those long, dry nights? A nice exfoliating scrub. I really enjoyed the purifying Himalayan salt scrub by Rituals. After you thoroughly dry off, Rituals also make a wonderful body cream that is very hydrating and nourishing.
What is most important is to keep it simple and try to stay calm and relaxed. Remember that if it’s a happy mommy, it’s a happy baby.
