Thalassotherapy using French brand Thalgo
The French have long believed in the restorative powers of thalassotherapy – using sea water as a form of therapy. Roman soldiers used hot seawater baths as a way to recover from battle in the past. Today, you don’t need to have post-battle wounds to enjoy thalassotherapy – simply enjoy it in seawater baths, pools and even facial treatments.
The concentration of marine extracts, minerals, and trace elements found in sea water is 10,000 times greater than that found on land. Their biomimicry provides a connection to our skin and provides more oxygenation and negative Ion levels than those found in cities. This is a source of vitality and well-being.
Thalgo, a French brand, is one of the pioneers in this field. The brand was founded in 1966 by Andre Bouclet, a French pharmacist. It uses an innovative algae micronisation process that allows the algae cells to release nutrients while maintaining the effectiveness of the active ingredients. Andre filed a medical patent to three micronized algae that were used in dermatology, rheumatism, and other conditions.
Thalgo opened a lab on the French Riviera in 1976. Being close to the Grasse, the fragrance capital of the country, Thalgo was able to create and convey the luminosity and revitalising powers of the Riviera’s sun-kissed waters in all its products.
Thalgo is currently used in more than 12,000 professional beauty salons, spas, and thalassotherapy centers worldwide.
