This spring, Thalgo introduced another line of destination products — Thalgo Merveille Arctique (or Arctic Wonder). This new spa range is inspired by the five oceans and takes you on a journey where you experience a union relaxing warmth and refreshing coolness all motivated by the unique qualities of the oceans. Thalgo has also created a body treatment which incorporates the Merveille Arctique range and includes relaxing and invigorating ocean-inspired massage movements and scents to further take you to a place of incomparable relaxation.
Founded in 1964, the company’s aim was to manufacture algae-based products for the medical field. In 1968, the Thalgo brand was registered and began supplying leading thalassotherapy centers with micronized marine algae. Studies have proven how beneficial the sea is for health and well-being. Thalgo has been able to harness these extraordinary benefits in its range of spa treatments and skincare products.
Today, Thalgo has become the uncontested name in the world of Marine Beauty creating, manufacturing and marketing treatments, cosmetic products and marine-based nutritional supplements in more than 90 countries for thalassotherapy centers, spas and resorts.
With a deep respect to the sea and all its wonders, Thalgo has defined and strictly reinforces its environmentally friendly practices by:
- Supporting the Marine Conservation Society
- Investing in solar panels which help reduce CO2 emissions
- Implementing an eco-friendly Formulation Charter (for the development of its products)
- Creating all new formulas that are free of parabens, mineral oil, propylene glycol, GMO’s, and ingredients of animal origin.
Thalgo is inspired by thalassotherapy, spa treatments that use real seawater, seaweed and algae to effectively treat a range of conditions from skin problems, such as eczema, to excess weight, low energy levels and fluid retention.
Why Algae? The sea is where life on our planet began. Three billion years ago the first living cells were single cell blue algae. When you analyze seawater under a microscope, you can see it has a very similar structure to blood plasma. As such, their patented Micronized Marine Algae (MMA) provides outstanding results in the medical treatment of conditions such as rheumatism, arthritis and skin disorders. In other words, it is an ancient belief that the sea has the ability to wash away our ills and Thalgo technology is proving this to be true.
