The Oceans represent the origin and future of mankind
There is a fundamental connection that links the Oceans to human life.
The Oceans cover 70% of the earth's surface, just like 70% of the human body consists of water.
The Oceans are the origin of life: three billion years ago, this exceptionally rich and nourishing environment gave birth to the very first form of life on earth, in the form of a single-cell blue alga, which then differentiated, allowing the animal and human kingdoms to develop.
Mankind therefore carries this origin, this marine "signature", within.
At the beginning of the last century, the biologist Quinton was the first to highlight the similarity between the composition of seawater and our internal fluids, as if our cells had reproduced around them this original marine environment from which they are derived and which is essential to their metabolism.
Last but not least, at a time when we are – quite rightly – increasingly concerned about the quality of the air that we breathe, we must never forget that the Oceans are our planet's lungs! Contrary to popular belief, the leading producer of oxygen on earth is not the forest but phytoplankton, which produce 2/3 of the oxygen that we breathe, in other words much more than all of the forests in the world combined...

The power of marine cosmetics
One of the major challenges of cosmetics research is obtaining the best possible penetration of active ingredients into skin and their perfect assimilation by the cells to guarantee an effective beauty result.
And this is precisely the great strength of marine cosmetic active ingredients.
The superiority of marine cosmetic active ingredients comes from their exceptional bio-affinity with our internal environment, which makes them more assimilable and more effective than their terrestrial counterparts.
Algae have an extraordinary concentration of the minerals and trace elements essential for our skin's balance, up to 10,000 times higher than terrestrial plants. That's why we like to say that "alga is the plant of the future" and that "the beauty of tomorrow will be marine".
The Oceans represent an inexhaustible source of Beauty, rich in active molecules, which allows THALGO to offer every woman in the world gentler and more effective Outstanding Marine Cosmetics, from which we draw our inspiration to formulate the cosmetic active ingredients of tomorrow.
