Innovation at the heart of Laboratoires BIOTIC Phocea's concerns

Innovation & Expertise

Multiple applications

In the beginning, the sterile pigment created, called BIOCHROMADERM®, was intended to recolour the mammary areola of patients operated on due to breast cancer.
In parallel, BIOTIC Phocea developed an innovative tattoo machine BIOCEA® allowing these single-use medical pigments to be safely applied to the epidermis. BIOTIC Phocea extends its use to permanent makeup through a line of aesthetic pigments Airless Color®.
Subsequently, the company created a training centre to support professionals in their activity.

Guarantees of quality
Declared to the ANSM (The French National Agency for Medicines and Health Products Safety ) and a member of the COSMED cosmetics network, the laboratories follow Good Manufacturing Practices (ISO 22716 certified) and meet the requirements of the European Cosmetics Regulation. Furthermore, as an active member of the French professional association for ecological and organic cosmetics, COSMEBIO, the laboratories are also involved in the certification process for organic cosmetics certified by Bureau Veritas Certification. Finally, BIOTIC Phocea cosmetic products are manufactured in class D air laboratories and class C laboratories for the manufacture of pigments, in order to offer the best quality.

Clean & Safe

BIOTIC Phocea's ongoing commitment to the environment


Reasonable use of resources
We manufacture inks and cosmetics differently, but our ambition does not stop there!
Our action is more than ever societal through our ecological commitments on the choice of our raw materials, sourced locally as much as possible, and the selection of eco-engaged suppliers who share our values. We do our utmost to reduce our water consumption during our manufacturing process, in particular by formulating water-free tattoo ink.

A permanent commitment
Selective sorting, limited paper printing, recycling of ink cartridges or cardboard allow us to fight against waste...
BIOTIC Phocea has been actively supporting a reforestation organisation since 2006 by donating its apprenticeship tax.
We are aware that we are part of an ecosystem where everyone has a role to play, which we strive to do on a daily basis.

French manufacturing: 100% made in Provence
All products are manufactured in Marseille, in our laboratories, which guarantees the traceability of our entire production chain and controls the manufacturing conditions of our products.
