Thalgo offers a comprehensive range of professional salon treatments for face, body, aroma-phycology, hydrotherapy, sun care and post-depilatory.
THALGO: A BACKGROUND
Thalgo is at the forefront of international spa therapy with over 40 years experience in sea-based skin treatment products. Since its creation in 1968, Thalgo has become a worldwide recognised brand with cosmetic research and formulation of Marine Algae and plant based cosmetics beginning as early as 1964. The Marine Algae powder – awarded both a medical and process patent – gave outstanding results in the treatment of conditions such as rheumatism, arthritis and skin disorders, and its success inspired the Thalgo team to branch into the cosmetology field.
THALGO: THE SOURCE
Thalgo treatments draw their richness and efficiency from the marine universe. The scientific team have harnessed the powerful riches of the sea for aesthetic use. Algae are the base of Thalgo marine care; their active potential is immense. For example, one alga 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 penetration for use within the Thalgo treatment programmes, now used extensively in Spas and Thalassotherapy centres worldwide.
THALGO: NEW DISCOVERIES
In 1999, Jean Claude Sirop took over the direction of Thalgo with the ambition to make the brand the uncontested reference in the world of Marine Therapy. Further research heralded the discovery of new algae strains with powerful rebalancing, protecting, nourishing and anti-wrinkle properties. Another innovation and award-winning product launched in early 2002 was Serum d'Exception, a unique serum incorporating a world premier ingredient "Natural Marine Algae Hormones". In tests, Serum d'Exception proved to preserve hyaluronic acid (moisture), stop the deterioration of the skin's structural support fibres, nourish the skin and re-energise the fibroblasts that produce collagen and elastin.
Also launched in 2002 was the Impeccable Purity cleansing line using a unique new algae called Criste Marine. The range is only available through professional Beauty Therapists and no products are tested on animals.
