    The world : Our exploitation territory

    Thalgo was created by a pharmacist, André Bouclet, from his passion for the marinee world and its invaluable riches.

    Hidden deep in the oceans’ depths are a multitude of treasures such as minerals, highly assimilable trace elements, vitamins, amino acids and other active molecules, secreted by the flora and fauna to help them survive in their hostile environment.

    In 1964, supported by the work of René Quinton and Professors Dubarry and Guelfi, and convinced that the marine world would be the source of great therapeutic and cosmetic discoveries in the decades to come, André Bouclet created BLC Laboratories, which specialised in skincare products formulated with algae and marine extracts intended for the medical world and thalassotherapy

    At the leading edge of Marine Research, André Bouclet made a major discovery in the world of marine skincare and developed a unique and patented ALGAE MICRONISATION process

    In 1966, he registered a MEDICAL PATENT confirming the therapeutic benefits of MICRONISED ALGAE and protecting the exclusive composition that he had created from 3 algae selected for their rich mineral content.

    This 100% natural algae powder is still used for its detoxifying, remineralising, sebo-regulating and regenerating potential.

    These major scientific breakthroughs, acknowledged by the medical and scientific communities, enabled the THALGO brand, registered by André Bouclet in 1968, to gain a strong and permanent foothold in the field of Thalassotherapy, thus establishing its position as a key player.

    In 1978, Thalgo became a legitimate contender in the Wellness and Beauty world with the creation of a Marine Cosmetics range.

    For more than 40 years, carried by the same convictions and the same passion as André Bouclet, the Thalgo Research Centre has continued to explore the oceans in order to develop Power of Marine Spa and Beauty.

    Today, Thalgo is considered a pioneer in Thalassotherapy, and the World Leader in Professional Marine Cosmetics.
