The Science of Marine Collagen

There are three different types of collagen that can be found in the human body – Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3. Marine Collagen is classified as type 1; the most abundant type of collagen found in the body. Type 1 collagen is responsible for making sure your skin maintains its firmness and appearance, it’s the most important type to take if you want to look after the overall health of your skin.

Where does Marine Collagen come from?

Marine collagen comes from fish which may have been discarded as a by-product of the huge fishing industry, making it a more sustainable, environmentally friendly source of collage. 

The body naturally produces collagen however levels naturally decrease as we age resulting in the first signs of ageing skin. Collagen levels are known to drop by about 1% each year for both men and women, especially from mid-20's to early 30's. Collagen plays a key component in maintaining skin's elasticity, texture and minimising the appearance of wrinkles and ageing skin. Supplementing marine collagen alongside a healthy, balanced diet will help to improve and maintain the skin in peak condition, and prevent visible signs of ageing to reveal youthful, glowing skin.
