From the earliest civilizations, the sea has been considered to be an inexhaustible source of well-being. Ancient Mediterranean populations knew of the healing properties of sea water and its elements. Their teachings on the beneficial properties of this water, handed down for centuries, are today known as thalassotherapy remedies. Thalassotherapy comes from the Greek terms thàlassa and therapeìa, literally “care of the sea”.
It was the English doctor Richard Russel (1687-1759) who brought the beneficial effects of marine substances through thalassotherapy to the fore. He wrote, among other scientific treatises, "De tabe glandulari, sive de usu aquae marinae in morbis glandularum" and "On the use of sea water".
His passion for the sea meant that he was dubbed "l'inventeur de la mer" [the sea inventor] Russel said: “you need to drink seawater, bathe in it, and eat all forms of seafood in which all the virtues of the sea can be found”.
Algae have a key role among the many substances originating in the sea used for cosmetic purposes and more, and they are widely used in numerous thalassotherapy centres around the world. Known and appreciated in the marine environment, and often used for slimming and reshaping treatments, algae contain a wide variety of natural components with multiple properties.
