algae in skin care

In our recent blog “Why Algae Part I,” we talked all about the benefits and importance of Algae in skin care. We mentioned that “Algae have a very high concentration of mineral elements (iodine, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc, cobalt, iron, fluoride, etc.) and also contain almost every vitamin and amino acid. Thanks to this particularly rich composition, algae boast antiviral as well as antibacterial qualities.”


For more than 50 years, THALGO has explored the sea depths and identified specific seaweeds with anti-aging, slimming, detoxifying, rebalancing, hydrating and soothing properties.


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.


The sea is where life on our planet began. Three billion years ago the first living cells were single cell blue algae. When you analyze seawater under a microscope, you can see it has a very similar structure to blood plasma. The human body is made up of approximately 70% water. The sea makes up 3/4 of the earth’s surface. Algae are responsible for 1/3 of the world’s oxygen production.


There are literally thousands of types of algae. Some are more rich in mineral elements than others. If you are the curious type, check out our Thalgo Partner website and click the link on algae. It explains all the different types of algae used, where and when they are harvested and the properties that make them valuable to skincare.
