The crib of the living world
Human beings share astounding biological similarities with the sea and its estimated 500,000 aquatic species of animals and plants. Since our 1966 creation in the south of France, Thalgo has been using these similarities to find all the elements within the sea to achieve our ideals of promoting beauty and well-being. We have gained worldwide recognition offering the most extensive and complete range of high performance spa treatments and home care products.
Thalgo’s concept is taken from thalassotherapy, the treatment of the body using natural seawater. Vital for health and well-being, we can all benefit from the goodness of sea-based treatments and products. For thousands of years the powers of sea therapies have been renowned for their dramatic effects in revitalizing, re-balancing and healing the body.
Thalassotherapy From the Greek word Thalassa, meaning the sea, the term thalassotherapy was coined in the 19th Century to describe the many uses and curative effects of sea water and substances derived from the sea, such as seaweed, marine mud, sand and sea-spray.

Our patented Micronized Marine Algae (MMA) provides outstanding results in the medical treatment of conditions such as rheumatism, arthritis and skin disorders. Due to a unique manufacturing process, the cell walls of the marine algae are literally exploded to release the active inner ingredients. The micro-particles of the resulting powder ensure remarkable skin penetration and are extensively used for slimming, thalassotherapy and detoxifying programs in spas and resorts.
Thalgo offers a complete range of professional marine spa treatments for face and body, along with aroma-phycology, hot stones, hydrotherapy, nutrition, sun care, men’s skin care, post- depilatory and hotel amenities. Our treatments are a source of harmony, vitality, renewal, well-being and total beauty. The pleasure of entering into the Thalgo world consists of real spa and home rituals, which are deeply rooted in our marine origins.
