Celebrating 50 Years with Thalgo

February 5, 2015 nadine


A man of Science, Doctor of Pharmacy, with an intuitive pioneering spirit, André Bouclet, whose mentors – René Quinton, René Bagot and Dr La Bonnardiere guide the research work – was firmly convinced of the therapeutic powers of the marine world.

In 1964 he created THALGO, the first Marine Cosmetology Laboratory.

Fascinated by the ingenuity of microorganisms of algae to withstand extreme conditions of life underwater, he discovered a unique and revolutionary method to reveal the vital force of the Oceans and extract key molecules with curative properties.

Implemented and patented in 1966 by André Bouclet, the micronisation of algae technique used by THALGO is the only micronisation technique ensuring perfect integrity of the active principles as well as their high cutaneous bioavailability. Thanks to this innovation, the same year he filed a medical patent on a composition of three Micronised Algae whose active molecules reveal, synergistically, remarkable therapeutic and cosmetic powers.

From that point on, THALGO Laboratory became the essential partner of Thalassotherapy Centres, delivering a new kind of treatment based on algae and marine extracts with therapeutic and cosmetic virtues recognised by the medical world.

Creator, some 50 years ago, of Marine Cosmetics, THALGO, guided by a faultless pioneering spirit, offers beauty the incredible diversity of marine life and is naturally established in this segment, as the leading brand in France and worldwide.


THALGO invents the Beauty of Tomorrow

“THALGO, pioneer in Marine Cosmetology, invests in advanced Fundamental Research that is able to explore the most remote ocean depths to discover, among marine species, the active molecules of tomorrow with extraordinary cosmetic powers, of which the effectiveness defies the boundaries of aesthetic medicine.

More than ever convinced by Active Marine Cosmetology, my vision of the beauty of tomorrow revolves around 3 main areas of exploration:

Pushing the limits of Marine Intelligence by developing ever more effective formulas backed up by major scientific innovations. Revolutionary marine active ingredients with unrivalled biological functions and high-tech textures guiding the active ingredients to the heart of the target cells, cosmetics with customisable concentrations that ensure revolutionary results.
Innovating by Professional Excellence in providing the signature treatments of a strong brand: cutting-edge massage techniques, exclusive instrumental cosmetics and professional formulas highly concentrated in marine active ingredients as the key to unmatched performance.

Committing more than ever to naturalness with the promise of products fully respecting the skin as well as the environment, a guarantee of Safe and Responsible Beauty.

All the many areas of Research and Innovation that will shape our Pioneer and Futurist Active Marine Cosmetics of tomorrow.”
