We are convinced that nature already provides us with the very best for our daily health and well-being.
In our search for complementary solutions to allopathic medicine, we quickly discovered the importance of algae and micro-algae in today's and tomorrow's global nutrition, as an effective, simple, natural and ecological means to a healthier life.
We promise to be transparent and ethical in the way we work.
A simple promise, but one that takes on great importance in a world where miracle pills abound, labels multiply, the origin of ingredients is difficult to trace and therapeutic claims are not always scientifically validated.
Our commitment translates into honest communication of the scientific and medical information we have on the various products we offer.
We ensure that our employees and partners work under respectable conditions and receive fair remuneration.
We surround ourselves with people who share our values, and make every effort to ensure that they are respected at every stage of the production chain.
Growing or harvesting seaweed for consumption is not harmful to nature if done correctly.
The consumption of seaweed-based food supplements is the most environmentally-friendly alternative to chemical supplements or supplements from non-renewable sources for a healthier population.
In our quest for quality products combined with eco-responsible approaches, we have selected producers who cultivate algae and micro-algae according to precise criteria, with respect for the planet.
Our regions often don't offer the optimum conditions for growing algae and micro-algae. Most of the new players offering "local" microalgae ensure minimum quality standards and can only produce for a few months of the year. Alternatively, huge industrial-scale operations are springing up, but with poor environmental credentials due to cumbersome production structures and high energy requirements, particularly for heating and cooling. The CO2 emissions of the latter are far higher than those of Algorigin production in more favourable climates, where the bulk of emissions are linked to transport.
To further reduce our transport volumes, we carry out all our packaging in Switzerland.
And to further limit our environmental impact, we have opted for brown glass packaging (guaranteeing the UV barrier needed to preserve our products) and manufactured in France.
