1972 - THE ORIGIN OF MARINE COSMETICS
It all started at the beginning of the 1970's in Saint-Malo, Brittany. Jean Gedouin, a young, visionary entrepreneur, became fascinated by scientific research which demonstrated the benefits of seawater to the skin. He created PHYTOMER, thus marking the invention of marine cosmetics: A new form of skin care which harnessed the incredible diversity of the marine world to produce effective beauty treatments and solutions.
40 years on, driven by the same passion for the sea, PHYTOMER is now more than ever the embodiment of marine cosmetics of the future. Unique products which are apply defined by the brand's three bywords: OCEAN, SCIENCE and BEAUTY.
