Phytomer eco-friendly brand

OUR COMMITMENTS TO THE ENVIRONMENT

Phytomer uses sustainable cosmetic production practices with an aim to reduce our environmental impact at every step of the production chain. Our sincere, pro-active corporate social responsibility measures have been in place for over 20 years.

FOCUS ON LOCAL SOURCES & SUSTAINABLE HARVEST PRACTICES

2/3 of our active ingredients come from Brittany, France. We use short supply chains and work in close collaboration with a network of local partners: growers, start-up companies, scientists, etc.

Our algae are harvested with respect to location, season and reproduction period in order to preserve natural resources.

SUSTAINABLE ALGAE CULTURES

The rarest and most fragile algae species we use are grown on ropes in the open sea or in seawater reservoirs in our Laboratories.

In our Innovation Center, we have perfected biotech culture processes for unique, 100% natural marine ingredients.

These cutting-edge processes mean we preserve natural resources and can therefore ensure exceptional quality and purity.

MANAGING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

We select production processes with limited environmental impact throughout the manufacturing process. These include eco-conscious extraction methods, renewable energy sources, organic marine plant cultures, de-polluting wastewater treatments, and smart recycling methods.

A commitment to the environment and respect for the sea are more than just a fad for us; they lie at the heart of our company’s mission.

QUALITY CERTIFICATIONS & CSR

Phytomer adheres to a strict quality charter when harvesting algae in order to preserve and protect natural marine resources. Our harvest areas are located in NATURA 2000 zones (well-monitored areas without pollution).

Natura 2000

In 2012, Phytomer was one of the first cosmetic companies to be recognized for its sustainable manufacturing practices.

We follow strict production guidelines at every step of the manufacturing process in order to guarantee the unimpeachable quality and traceability of our products. With marine active ingredients we have developed in our own research labs, unique cosmetic formulas, and an integrated production site, we remain autonomous and oversee every aspect of the manufacturing process from the acquisition of raw materials to the roll-out of finished products.

ISO22716

In 2021, Phytomer was awarded ECOVADIS GOLD certification. It is a clear affirmation of our commitment to CSR (corporate social responsibility) when it comes to the environment, workplace practices, human rights, business ethics, and sustainable purchases. Our GOLD status places us among the top 5% of companies certified by ECOVADIS.

OUR PATRONAGE OF THE SEA

We are a partner of TIME FOR THE OCEAN, a charity that organizes artistic events to build awareness of the urgent need to protect the world’s oceans.

As part of the partnership, we proudly sponsors SEA ART, a documentary series directed by Maud Baignères. It was conceived as a way to incite wonder and a commitment to protecting the sea via impactful films which showcase artists with intimate ties to the world’s oceans.
