Our history

1964 - Creation of Thalgo by a pharmacist

A visionary pharmacist, André Bouclet was always passionate about the regenerating power of the sea. In 1964, he created Thalgo (a combination of “Thalassotherapy” and “Algae”), the first laboratory specialising in skincare products based on algae and marine extracts, intended for the medical world and thalassotherapy centres.

In 1966, he developed a unique algae micronisation method that ruptures the algae cell walls to release their contents, while preserving their wealth of active ingredients. The same year, he filed a medical patent for the combination of three micronised algae (Laminaria Digitata – Fucus Vesiculosus – Lithothamnium calcareum), prescribed for skin, rheumatic and circulatory disorders.

1976 - Thalgo is established on the French Riviera

In 1976, the Thalgo Laboratory was set up on the French Riviera and was inspired by its gentle lifestyle, energising light and colours to "envelop" its active ingredients in sensory fragrances and textures. The galenic forms evoke the sensory pleasures associated with the sea, while the fragrances, developed in Grasse, convey the freshness and luminosity of sun-kissed water.

Thalgo has always combined efficacy and well-being.

Just like the sea revitalises body and mind, Thalgo has always combined efficacy and well-being.
