After discovering how a prebiotic and probiotic diet could improve the symptoms of the gluten intolerance that had been plaguing her life for years, Marie got a Eureka moment: What if we applied the same science to skin?

Marie’s thesis on the microbiome and the enormous benefits of harnessing helpful bacteria gave her the vision and the know-how to create Gallinée’s formulations. Thanks to her pharmacy background and her beauty experience, Marie designed formulas like no other, and patented the triple biotic complex that you can now find in Gallinée’s products.
