PHYTOMER DOES NOT REINVENT WHAT NATURE DOES SO WELL; WE ADAPT IT.  
   
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.

AN EXCEPTIONALLY RICH BRAND TERRITORY

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.
As for the 35,000 existing varieties of seaweed, true "sea sponges", they concentrate the properties of the marine world by a factor of up to 50,000. Only 1% of this enormous potential has been exploited, making marine-based cosmetology a science of the future.
 
     
 
THE OCEAN AND SKIN: ASTONISHING SIMILARITIES

All of us have our origins in marine species. The first living cells were born in the sea, and we have kept a close relationship with that birthplace: blood plasma and sea water share a very similar composition. Furthermore, 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.

Phytomer's treatments thus offer the sensations, performance, and unique pleasure of a new type of beauty, one that is more natural and real.

FROM SEAWEED TO OUR MAIN ACTIVE INGREDIENT

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.
  • No animal testing. Phytomer is committed to never performing any tests on animals, whether for raw materials or finished products.
  • 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'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.

PHYTOMER'S INVOLVEMENT IN MARINE CULTIVATION

Above all, sustainable development means being familiar with nature, its biodiversity, and its ecosystems so as to understand and protect its resources. Because it uses marine raft cultivation, Phytomer only harvests certain varieties of seaweed from natural sources and only puts into production the necessary quantities. We have set up a crop program in a 70-hectare marine grant within a protected area. Through this program, Phytomer has become a pioneer in cultivating seaweed for cosmetic purposes. We are also currently working on the cultivation of threatened species that may eventually be reintroduced into the natural environment.

This method encourages the restocking of the local ecosystem, since other types of seaweed begin to grow within our crop areas and fish reproduce there naturally. Through this approach, we prioritize the principles and issues of sustainable development for the Brittany coasts.
 
 
 
     
  A FULLY CONTROLLED PROCESS FOR PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT  
     
 
 
In our Research and Development laboratory on the Bay of Mont Saint Michel, more than 20 scientists with complementary training explore the depths of the ocean in search of ever more effective active ingredients.

Our most recent discoveries establish the excellence of our expertise and confirm our position as an international leader in the world of marine-based cosmetics.

Through these marine-based active ingredients developed through our own research, our unique formulas, and our integrated production site, we are able to control the entire development process for our products, from raw material to finished product.
 
 
 
 
CONSTANT INNOVATION

To protect and capitalize on its expertise, Phytomer files patents on its main discoveries. Each product line includes a patented active ingredient, for even more effective and innovative treatment in the areas of greatest concern to women.

The main Phytomer patents include: Eau de Source Marine (anti-aging treatments), Adinergine, Inhibitine Marine and Halopteris Scoparia (slimming treatments), etc.

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.).
 
     
     
  The brand owes its widespread recognition to the emphasis it places on sharing its expertise with beauty professionals from around the world.  
     
 
 
Because we know that a professional trained in our methods of treatment, consulting, and sales will be motivated, competent, and effective, we have made our training course obligatory.

Our Saint-Malo training center is located in the natural environment of the coast. Our training courses, which literally dive into the marine world, set themselves apart through the intense transfer of knowledge and expertise that takes place in a very spa-like atmosphere.

Unique in its operations, our training center allows beauty professionals to receive theoretical training (studies on the brand philosophy and its retail and professional treatment products) followed by practical training: our instructors teach the body and facial treatment methods, movement by movement. Each professional practices giving the treatment and then receives it so as to be completely steeped in it and master it completely.

The excellence of the Phytomer training course, an infusion of culture and pleasure, has already been met with tremendous success by thousands of professionals from around the world.
