Marine biodiversity, a sustainable commitment
PHYTOMER is a pioneer of in-house algae farming for cosmetic applications with a cultivation program in a marine area spanning 70 hectares (172 acres) in a protected zone.This program notably includes the cultivation of threatened species that can later be reintroduced to the natural environment. The filtering gardens are another concrete example of PHYTOMER’s environmental commitment. This 100% natural and ingenious ecological system makes it possible to treat the water used to manufacture products exclusively with local depolluting plants, without the use of chemical solvents.
