Jean-Noël Thorel’s vision is rooted in biology.
His obsession with respecting the nature
of the skin and his high therapeutic expectations resulted 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.
Acting and formulating avoiding "pollutants".
Creating products that helpthe skin to adapt.
Providing elements that favora functional balance.
Acting on the causesof dysfunctions rather than overly compensatingfor their effects.
Acting from the insideand over time.
Applying only the required ingredients at the right dose.
"Perfection is reached
not when there
is nothing more to add,
but when there is nothing
more to remove."
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Interview: Jean-Noël Thorel on ecobiology
NAOS along with MedILS (Mediterranean
Institute for Life Sciences) organizes
an innovative summit on ecobiology
with scientists, renowned academics and Nobel laureates. The summit’s goal is to explore
ecobiology as a philosophical, scientific
and experimental approach serving
the living, nature and people.
