From the depths
of the world’s waters
to the depths
of your skin

the planet’s
blue heart

The world's waters are the blue heart of the Planet. Covering 70% percent of the Earth, they control our climate and produce 50% of the oxygen we breathe.

They are also home to 80% of all life forms whose unique and powerful properties are key to the future of science, medicine and energy. They are our future.

And yet today, our oceans, rivers and lakes are under threat from climate change, pollution, overfishing and acidification.

To preserve the beauty from the deep,
we need to act. Fast.

Biotherm’s Water Lovers platform commits to the preservation of the Earth's waters
and aquatic life.
