At Phytomer, we believe in the unique pleasure that comes from feeling beautiful. Each ingredient in our formulas plays a specific role in ensuring safety, effectiveness and pleasure of use at all times.
We are passionate about the sea and use our wild, organic, or sustainable marine ingredients to deliver the sea’s immeasurable benefits to your skin. Each and every day, our research team is developing green methods for extracting the most powerful natural active molecules that can be found in the sea. These are then turned into exceptionally effective skincare products.
Because we manufacture our products ourselves, in our own laboratories on the Mont-Saint-Michel Bay (in Brittany) and have done so for nearly three generations, we can certify their quality. Year after year, we have developed a vast knowledge of the marine ingredients we create.
We formulate them into delicate textures that are luxuriously soothing and a pleasure to use, so that beauty resonates with well-being.
With sales in over 80 countries, our standards meet the most stringent regulations in the world for tolerance, safety, and quality.
All of our formulas and protocols are audited by third-party laboratories overseen by dermatologists, biologists, and other skin specialists...
We rigorously select the ingredients we incorporate into our products to ensure safety, effectiveness and pleasure of use at all times. 95% of our range is vegan-friendly, and all of our formulas are made from naturally-derived marine extracts.
We use high quality synthetic ingredients, when they bring benefits in terms of pleasure of use and beauty results.
At PHYTOMER, we promote eco-friendly cosmetics that use locally-sourced ingredients from Brittany with respect for both the sea and the marine farmers who supply us.
In our research department, we develop sustainable algae cultivation that promotes marine biodiversity while optimizing product performance.
At our spas and salons, we work exclusively with licensed beauty professionals to provide quality, personalized skincare solutions that show your skin the serious care and attention it deserves.
Each product undergoes numerous trials that test dozens of active ingredients to achieve a perfect balance of efficiency, pleasure and skin tolerance, while always putting skin safety first.

Our products are manufactured in Brittany by a team of talented scientists who are passionate about both the sea and skincare. Each and every day, they discover and test the most powerful marine active ingredients to be used at the heart of PHYTOMER’s exclusive formulas so that these deliver unparalleled results that are perfect affinity with the skin. A marine active ingredient is defined as any cosmetic ingredient derived from the sea: algae, micro-algae, marine micro-organisms, plus the plants, flowers and trees that grow by the sea.
The world’s oceans constitute a vast biological reservoir and they are all the more fascinating because their resources remain largely untapped.
Seawater presents an extraordinary number of potential benefits thanks to its high levels of trace elements and minerals. Seawater also closely resembles physiological serums which means it has a naturally symbiosis with skin.
Micro or macro, brown, red or green, algae have much in common with skin cells. Many algae defense and protection mechanisms have remained unchanged throughout the evolution of life on Earth. Marine active ingredients are therefore characterized by an excellent bioavailability in terms of skincare: your skin recognizes them and absorbs them better than other compounds. These characteristics allow PHYTOMER to create moderately concentrated formulas that are optimal for skin tolerance and still deliver excellent results.
While the high-performance results of our products depend essentially on the marine active ingredients that we discover and develop in our laboratories, the other natural ingredients we employ are chosen for their abilities to increase the cosmetic benefits and sensorial experiences they deliver. Here are three examples from the wide range of ingredients our cosmetic formulation specialists use to express their creativity.
saccharide isomerate : marine sugar
benzyl salicylate : Ylang Ylang essential oil
caprylic/capric triglycerides : vegetal emollient
We select skincare molecules recognized by dermatologists for their efficiency and results, solar filters that protect your skin, fragrances that make our products a pleasure to use… All of the synthetically-derived ingredients we use must meet three major criteria :
Efficient | Dermatologist-recognized skincare molecules with scientifically proven benefits.
Non-Irritant | These skincare molecules have passed tolerance tests and often have medical and pharmaceutical applications.
Pure | They contain absolutely no toxic substances.
To ensure the safety of our products, we add only the amount of preservatives that are absolutely necessary to avoid cross-contaminations or infection risks, as well as prevent products from deteriorating.
