Founded in 1964, the company’s initial aim was to manufacture algae-based products for the medical field. In 1968, the THALGO brand was registered, and from the beginning of the 1970s, the company supplied the leading thalassotherapy centers with micronized marine algae.
Today, THALGO has become the uncontested name in the world of “Marine Beauty.” The company creates, manufactures and markets treatments, cosmetic products and marine-based nutritional supplements in more than 90 countries, for thalassotherapy centers, spas and resorts.
Headquartered in the southeast of France in Roquebrune-sur-Argens (the Var region), THALGO is a Group in full expansion, with a turnover of $77 million, 450 employees, 15 companies (3 of which are subsidiaries), 2 laboratories, 2 integrated production units and more than 20,000 outlets across the world.
A socially engaged Group and respectful of the environment, THALGO continuously reinforces its environmentally friendly practices. It advocates the protection of marine environments in supporting the Marine Conservation Society,” invests in solar panels which help reduce CO2 emissions, and implements an ecofriendly Formulation Charter for the development of its products. All new formulas are free of parabens, mineral oil, propylene glycol, GMO’s, and ingredients of animal origin.
In 2008, the Group put in place specific beauty training for the visually impaired in its School.
All these environmental and social practices make the Group a responsible and engaged player in Sustainable Beauty.
