As an alternative medical remedy, the use of algae and seaweed, such as blue-green spirulina and red gelidium sesquipedale, to treat medical conditions and promote overall wellness has been going on for centuries. Until the 20th century, the effectiveness of marine extracts for skin care had not been widely evaluated. In the early 1960s, pharmacist M. Bouclet changed that by experimenting with various types of algae and ultimately developing a line of skin care products based on his research. Since 1966, his products sold under the Thalgo brand have been used in homes and luxury spas throughout the world. You can discover the benefits of this revolutionary brand of natural skin care products through the Thalgo Treatments collection.
