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.

Why Algae?

For years, Thalgo has incorporated algae as the basic ingredient for their skin care, body care and supplements. Why algae? Well there are several reasons this super power from the sea can benefit your skin and body.

 

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. They are even used to heal rheumatism and regulate the thyroid gland

 

In addition, Algae have the amazing ability to increase the rich content of minerals and trace elements of the sea and restore its strengthening, remineralizing and balancing properties, sometimes by up to 100,000 times. The star of treatments, algae, act like sponges in Thalassotherapy to give you the best that seawater has to offer.

 

 

The term thalassotherapy dates back to 1867 when Doctor de La Bonnardière, from Arcachon, France, invented the word from two Greek words meaning “treat with the sea” (in Greek, thalassa = sea and therapeia = treatment).

 

 Thalassotherapy takes place in a special marine site. It combines the use of all the benefits of the marine environment under medical supervision with a preventive and curative aim. These benefits include the marine climate, seawater, marine mud, algae, sand and other substances extracted from the sea. Thalassotherapy must be carried out in close proximity to the sea.

 

The curative properties of seawater and the marine climate have been used for therapeutic means since ancient times. Today’s Marine Treatments are a true asset for our well-being. So instead of asking why algae, we should really be asking why NOT?
