If you couldn’t take the newlyweds to The Haven, then take The Haven to the happy couple. The Haven is an official agent for Thal’ion cosmetics. Apart from using Thal’ion products for her facial and body treatments, Louise Tallon has also available for sale an extensive range of these fantastic algae-based products, from body and skin care to tonifying treatments and food supplements.


Thal’ion Laboratories are located in a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve on the coast of Brittany. The company harvests seaweed to extract its natural ingredients and manufactures beauty products directly on site, based on the seaweed’s regenerating and detoxifying properties.


“They are excellent products, very new to the country and they are very good value,” says Tallon. Thal’ion has received several rewards from French authorities.
