PHYTOMER PHILOSOPHY

Located in St. Malo, France on the Brittany coast, Phytomer
Laboratories specializes in the research and development of marine products. Jean Gédouin founded Phytomer Laboratories in 1971 after using the marine environment to reclaim his health. While striving to achieve his goal of providing salons, day spas, and resorts with the healing benefits of the sea, he recognized lyophilization as the most superior method of processing. Phytomer became the first company
to successfully apply this freeze drying method in the production of
an advanced cosmetic line.

Mr. Gédouin was not satisfied to just create products – his goals were much higher. He cultivated a philosophy based on treating the underlying causes of skin disorders, not merely the symptoms. This philosophy resulted in the development of treatment programs specific to each individual needs, based on the delicate balance between dietetics and cosmetics, this is the basis of The Phytomer Method.

Today Phytomer is recognized by professionals all over the world as
an undisputed leader of marine-based beauty therapy. Our reputation arose from Phytomer’s emphasis on education, and the development
of the highest quality products possible.

Phytomer, meaning literally “Plant of the Sea”, is located on the
western coast of France. It is the therapeutic powers of the ocean,
which brought way to the Phytomer concept, and philosophy of
“Beauty Through Health”. The Phytomer Method encompasses a carefully designed treatment program to individualize the needs of
each person through the use of skin care, body care, thalassotherapy, solar products, and a men’s line. Through this avenue, Phytomer is
able to offer balance and harmony to the body, which leads way to
a new sense of well being.

Currently, Phytomer products are available in over 75 countries worldwide. As a leader in the esthetics field for more than thirty years, Phytomer has adopted strict standards for product quality and effectiveness. Through unique and patented ingredients as well as utilization of the most proficient preservation methods, Phytomer laboratories achieve remarkable results with each product creation.     
      

   
DISTINGUISHED PRODUCT

causes of skin deficiencies before treating their symptoms. Then and only then can a treatment succeed for long term results!
