All Thalgo products incorporate the purest natural ingredients from marine or plant origin rich in minerals, trace elements, proteins, amino-acids and vitamins carefully selected for their effectiveness and superb results. We use the latest technology to create high performance products suitable for all ages, all skin types and for both men and women. Thalgo products are not tested on animals. Thalgo treatments draw their richness and efficiency from the marine universe. Our scientific team have developed a unique know-how in harnessing the powerful riches of the sea for aesthetic use. The sea is the cradle of life on earth and constitutes an immense reservoir of substances that are only just beginning to be exploited scientifically. Algae are the base of marine care. Their active potential is immense: for example, one algae contains a thousand times more iodine, one hundred times more calcium and ten times more magnesium and copper than a terrestrial plant. Due to a unique patented manufacturing procedure the cells of the Thalgo marine algae are literally exploded to liberate their active ingredients. The fineness of the powder obtained assures remarkable cutaneous penetration for use within the Thalgo treatment programs, now used extensively in Spas and Thalassotherapy centers world wide.
