3 passionate generations

The sound of the sea, the power of the waves, the cool, salty breeze…

It all began in Brittany, on the west coast of France, in 1972. There, in the gentle bay of Saint-Malo, a young entrepreneur named Jean Gédouin looked out to the sea.

OUR PASSION
TO THE SEA

The sea is the reason for our existence

Our history and our lives are closely intertwined with what surrounds us every day: the sea. We love it passionately and it serves us well. Thanks to the sea, we are able to develop exclusive high-quality products.

Through its support of SEA ART, PHYTOMER reaffirms its attachment to the sea. The magnificent documentary series directed by Maud Baignières uses Art as a way to build awareness of our need to save the oceans.

Watch SEA ART

« PHYTOMER scientists are the first in the world to cultivate the sea in the laboratory to amplify its power for the skin. They create high-quality, ecologically responsible formulas by controlling every step from discovery of the active ingredient to production of the final product.»

Antoine Gédouin, President of PHYTOMER
