OUR COMMITMENTS

Our commitment to innovation, excellence and efficacy extends beyond our products and ingredients—we are also dedicated to creating a new paradigm within the beauty industry: of safety, responsibility and sustainability. Committed to delivering formulas that are increasingly more natural, we are also dedicated to protecting the sea and its biodiversity for future generations.

The result of this symbiotic relationship between our expertise and our ingredients are galenic forms that reflect the sensory pleasures of the ocean: fresh foamy textures, aqueous gels, refreshing sprays, sun-kissed oils and scrubs with grains of sand. Leaving a luxe finish, the transdermal application of our formulas delivers an abundance of hardworking marine active ingredients deep into the heart of the skin.

COMMITMENT #1: CLEAN OCEAN

As a brand, Thalgo was born of the ocean and is therefore intimately connected to its current plight. Today, there is one piece of plastic waste for every five fish and given 80% of aquatic pollution comes from land—and is created by humans—our primary commitment is to protect the sea. If we do not act, in 30 years there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean.

We have partnered with The SeaCleaners and their Manta Project which is a unique and revolutionary approach to managing sea pollution. To find out more about our shared mission.

We regularly conduct beach clean-up operations to reduce coastline waste and prevent marine pollution. Both Thalgo employees and the general public are encouraged to join these expeditions.

We are dedicated to continuing to raise awareness amongst the broader public and our Thalgo community by creating campaigns that draw attention to actions that can be taken daily as individuals to protect the sea.

COMMITMENT #2: GREEN PACK

In order to minimise our ecological footprint, we have created a green packaging strategy that is designed to respect the ocean and reflect a more sustainable approach to design, production and packaging. Our three key focuses are:

Reducing & reusing packaging: already we have saved 5 tonnes of packaging by eliminating leaflets and spatulas and making our professional sets lighter.

Using recyclable & recycled materials: we remain committed to finding more sustainable options for our packaging and product lines.

Reducing environmental impact: by using boxes and brochures made with cardboard from sustainably-managed forests that respect biodiversity.

COMMITMENT #3: CLEAN BEAUTY

We are proud to be transparent at every level, creating products that are as kind to our environment as they are to our skin.

  • All formulas are proudly made in France at our Thalgo laboratory located on the French Riviera
  • 100% of our formulas include marine ingredients with respect for marine biodiversity
  • Thalgo's newest formulas include at least 90% ingredients from natural origins
  • Our formulas are vegan-friendly*
  • All products and protocols are tested under dermatological control

*With the exception of beeswax and our HyaluProCollagène dietary supplement

COMMITMENT #4: GREEN FACTORY

With every decision, we look to reduce our carbon footprint—protecting our terrestrial and marine ecosystems. 

Our factory at Roquebrune Sur Argens has been built to pharmaceutical laboratory requirements and also has ECOCERT accreditation—a global certification and inspection body which ensures eco-friendly practices and products. We also use specific cleaning products to guarantee a reduced impact in terms of industrial emissions.

At every opportunity we promote material recycling—including water, cardboard, plastic and wood.

COMMITMENT #5: ECO GESTURES

Our eco responsibilities extend to our Thalgo employees who each contribute to our shared mission by reducing waste and its impact on our oceans. Some of their daily actions include:

Using mugs, reusable water bottles and water fountains instead of plastic bottles.

Reducing printing and electronic consumption.

Sorting waste and recycling where possible.
