Thalgo looks to the oceans, where all life began, as its main beauty inspiration. The brand has harnessed the active healing ingredients in marine algae, seawater, and seaweed for use in its personal and skincare products. The Thalgo story began in 1964, when the company made algae-based products for medical applications.

Today, Thalgo beauty products are inspired by thalassotherapy spa treatments, which use seaweed and real seawater to treat skin problems such as eczema. The company is the uncontested leader in today’s 'marine beauty' market, offering skincare lines, cosmetics, and marine-based nutritional supplements.
