We believe in ecobiology to better preserve
the skin ecosystem and to strengthen
its natural mechanisms

This unique scientific approach is rooted in biology.


Jean-Noël Thorel’s vision is rooted in biology; his obsession with respecting the nature of the skin and his high therapeutic expectations resulting in a unique scientific approach: ecobiology. Ecobiology is based on the principle that the skin is an ever-evolving ecosystem that interacts with its environment and whose natural resources and mechanisms must be preserved. Rather than over-treating the skin, it must learn how to function properly…

Wary of multiplying active ingredients, this approach seeks to help the skin strengthen itself and adapt to its environment.

Different from traditional cosmetics, the ecobiological approach acts deep within the skin, rather than on the surface. A therapeutic dimension is thereby added to the cosmetic dimension.

In 2020, we decided to take part in a unique project between NAOS, Cosmetics Europe and the BBC Studios Network, inviting the public to go behind the scenes of the cosmetic and skincare sector.

Beyond their functional benefits, skincare products contributes to our health and well-being, as well as our self-esteem.

In this video entitled “Ecobiology is reinventing beauty”, Georgia (GG) Sargeant shares her story, Doctor Skotnicki brings her expertise on skincare and our NAOS R&D team, Aurélie Guyoux and Eloïse Collet explain NAOS unique approach.

Ecobiology, the art of skincare.

The skin

is an ecosystem

Acting and formulating avoiding

The skin

is in interaction with its environment

Creating products that help
the skin to adapt.

The skin

evolves over time

Providing elements that favor
a functional balance.

The skin

must not be over-treated

Acting on the causes
of dysfunctions rather than overly compensating
for their effects.

The skin

reflects internal balance

Acting from the inside
and over time.

The skin

only needs what is useful
to its natural functioning

Applying only the required ingredients at the right dose.

Immersion at the heart of the 1st ecobiology summit.


The first Ecobiology Summit took place in Split, Croatia, on April 18-19 2018; it was organized by NAOS in partnership with the MedILS, The Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences. 150 participants and 50 international journalists participated in 8 round-tables with scientific experts and Nobel laureates. The debates were on the definition of ecobiology and its role in upcoming challenges. To get an in-depth view of this event (www.theecobiologysummit.com)
