Jean-Noël Thorel’s vision is rooted in biology; his obsession with respecting the nature of the skin resulting in a pioneer 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.
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.
One of the founding principles of ecobiology is biomimetism, which allows us to observe, understand and mimic natural mechanisms to develop effective and sustainable solutions. Ecobiology is therefore a deeply respectful approach that makes the link between the biology of the skin and the ecology of the skin.
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.

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)
