Marine Ingredients


We are committed to using natural and naturally derived ingredients but sometimes the carefully considered use of other ingredients will enable us to offer a more effective product – our day cream with the essential sun protection factor for example.

Seaweed is rich in trace elements, minerals, vitamins and amino acids, and has been used in beauty and health treatments for many centuries.
Sea Lavender is a coastal plant which grows in soils with a high salt content, and has developed a resistance to harsh environmental conditions including dehydration. Our sea lavender extract is rich in polyphenol anti-oxidants which are known to search out and destroy free-radicals that can cause skin damage and pre-mature skin ageing. 
 
The sea lavender we use is farmed in France with the use of non GMO biological pest management and harvested under the supervision of the local agricultural authorities. The plant materials are certified 100% natural by ECOCERT (an international organic certification body represented both in the EU and in 70 other countries). The process to extract the peptides is natural, gentle and solvent free.
Marine Collagen and Elastin contribute to skin regeneration, combating slackening, wrinkles and fine lines. Protecting the skin’s collagen and elastin is essential to maintaining the flexibility and firmness of skin. 
Our marine collagen and elastin is extracted from by-products of managed fisheries and represent a sustainable use of marine resources. The extraction s achieved by an enzymatic reaction without the use of solvents.
Pseudoalteromonas Exopolysaccharides provide a naturally derived marine equivalent to Hyaluronic Acid. The Exopolysaccharides have a high water retaining  capacity which encourages a long lasting moisturising effect and wrinkle reduction.
