Founded in Saint-Malo in 1971, Phytomer is the leader in marine-based cosmetics. Present in 70 countries, the brand is recognized by the industry's best professionals and renowned for its expertise and experience. Phytomer, whose name means "ocean plants", is the first brand in the world to have integrated the benefits of the marine world into modern cosmetology. Phytomer, a marine-based brand, focuses its research in 3 areas: the ocean seaweed and more recently, coastal plants, which develop particular properties because of their location (extreme resistance to climate conditions such as wind, salt, etc.) SEAWEED AND THE OCEAN, THE LARGEST FIELD OF RESEARCH The ocean, a primordial soup, contains all of the elements (104 trace elements, minerals, and vitamins) essential for healthy skin and balance within the body.

THE OCEAN AND SKIN: ASTONISHING SIMILARITIES The protective membranes within seaweed and our skin share similar means of defense, protection, and regeneration. This astonishingly similar composition and behavior - referred to as biomimetism - has allowed Phytomer laboratories to develop active ingredients and treatment products that are perfectly suited to and tolerated by the skin. Thanks to our completely natural procedures for extraction and conservation, the structure and composition of the seaweed, plants, and sea water remain intact. In fact, Phytomer is the only laboratory in the world to have freeze dried sea water to obtain a unique active ingredient: OLIGOMER. A vehicle for penetration, its presence in almost all Phytomer treatments is a true seal of effectiveness. The "Phytomer" spirit is a priority for the company's managers The professionals who make up the Phytomer team focus constantly on expertise, savoir-vivre, and interpersonal skills.
MARINE-BASED COSMETICS Phytomer's active ingredients are of natural origin and some are in compliance with Ecocert standard for natural and organic cosmetics. Products tested under dermatological supervision, and ophthalmological supervision when necessary (products for the eye contour area). In addition to these tests, carried out by an independent laboratory - the guarantee of complete transparency - we also have perception tests carried out. These help us to understand volunteers' opinions on the texture, color, and fragrance of a product before it is released on the market. For several years, Phytomer has preferred the use of ingredients not tested on animals and recommend alternative test methods to avoid all animal testing. Respect for the environment when collecting raw materials. We are in constant contact with the natural environment and must protect it. Our seaweed is collected from natural seaweed forests, respecting periods of reproduction and following local regulations, and we work in close cooperation with the harvesters. We adapt our methods for each type of seaweed so as to ensure the preservation of the marine ecosystem. Phytomer Facials DPSC offers.
PHYTOMER'S COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT From our earliest days, we have always wanted to live every moment in the marine world that is our brand's strength. Our roots in Brittany play a key role in our conceptual framework, making the environment not simply a concern, but a part of our daily lives. The fact that we are so steeped in a culture of the environment facilitates our symbiosis with nature, placing our researchers in constant contact with the marine world that is the source of our discoveries. It is logical, therefore, that we should be among those most interested in protecting our oceans and seas.
UNIQUE CONSERVATION AND EXTRACTION PROCEDURES Phytomer is the only laboratory that is able to keep all of its active ingredients intact and infuse them into its products using completely natural extraction procedures. Freeze drying allows us to keep the structure and composition of seaweed and sea water with no alterations. In fact, Phytomer is the only laboratory in the world to have freeze dried sea water to obtain a unique active ingredient: Oligomer. This sea water concentrate contains the 104 trace elements necessary for healthy skin. Incorporated into the majority of our products, it remineralizes and rebalances skin even before treating any specific conditions (dehydration, wrinkles, lack of firmness, etc.).
