Phytomer is one of the world’s truly unique skin care lines. Born in 1971, Phytomer was the first marine-based beauty line in Saint-Malo, France. Phytomer was the first brand in the world to bring the virtues of the sea to modern skin care, basing their philosophy on using the elements of the marine environment such as seawater and seaweeds for therapeutic purposes. Phytomer contains naturally occurring trace elements and minerals that are indispensable to the correct functioning of human metabolism. The body does not produce these trace elements; therefore, they must be derived from another source. Phytomer products are this other source. Phytomer does not reinvent what nature has already created and perfected, they just adapt it in their skin care products.
Many years of research and a large staff of doctors and chemists have enabled Phytomer to select a number of ingredients that are rich in active principals – ingredients such as seaweed and algae. Seaweeds capture all of the elements from the sea and store all trace elements, including iron, iodine, copper and zinc. Seaweed found in Phytomer products also contain mineral salts, vitamins, glucides, lipids and proteins, necessary for skin health and purity. Interestingly enough, seaweed concentrates the riches of the ocean by up to 50,000 times. Plants, essential oils, specific proteins and biological extracts are among the active ingredients in Phytomer formulations selected for their unique benefits to the skin. Phytomer’s laboratory specializes in studying the marine environment; over time the specialists that work in this laboratory have refined and patented numerous active ingredients including Oligomer, Cytoprotectine and Marine Inhibitine, which can only be found in Phytomers fine formulations.
Phytomer has introduced many different collections within the line specifically designed to address the causes of skin care issues and concerns. Unlike many beauty oriented skin care lines that generally result in short term improvements, Phytomer improves the condition of the skin, not just the appearance, for long term, measurable results. Phytomer products are guaranteed to provide your skin with results seen and felt.
Phytomer’s products retain all of their natural properties due to detailed and precise preservation and extraction methods: lyophilization, also known as freeze-drying, and lixiviation, which is also known as liquid extraction method. Lyophilization preserves over 99% of the natural properties and potency of sea water and algae. Lyophilization allows for creation of 100% marine active ingredient as well as removes 99% of water contained in marine raw materials for optimal purity and extended shelf life.
Phytomer uses approximately fifteen different varieties of algae and seaweed in their products to address both internal and external problems our skin faces. Skin care problems are caused by extreme weather, pollution, ultraviolet rays, unbalanced diet, cellular aging and poor blood circulation. Such issues result in wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, loss of elasticity and firmness, dull and lifeless skin. Phytomer’s approach to such issues, through the use of active ingredients and results-oriented methods, provides your skin with a new technique to maintain beauty and prevent issues that are difficult to treat. Phytomer provides your skin with the individualized treatments for home and salon use. With Phytomer, you can give your skin the necessary components for skin beauty, inside and out.
