Known for its anti-aging properties, marine collagen is created from fish skin. Collagen strengthens and regenerates skin on a cellular level and helps protect against oxidative skin damage caused by ultraviolet light, making marine collagen uniquely rejuvenating booster.
Marine collagen plays an essential role in the creation of Peptan Marine.
Collagen is refined using Rousselot’s exclusive enzymatic process that produces high-density ultra-pure collagen peptides. Through the process of hydrolyzation, fish gelatin is converted into highly bioavailable and bioactive key molecules known as Peptan Marine collagen peptides, the primary active ingredient of Beauty Icon.
Earth-sourced ingredients are the lifesource of OXOMIO products. Creation begins in the purest waters, where skilled cultivators carefully harvest these star ingredients. In the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of France, skilled Angoumoisins carefully process fish skin to extract key molecules known as collagen peptides.
Excellence, innovation and expertise are behind every jar of OXOMIO products.
There are four main sources of collagen in the world. OXOMIO chose Marine Collagen for its superior bioavailability and for being the purest source of Type 1 collagen. While 28 different types of collagen have been identified, Type 1 collagen is the most abundant in the human body, making it the building block for beautiful skin.
The purest ingredients come from the most experienced suppliers. That’s why OXOMIO has partnered with Rousselot, the leading premium collagen manufacturer in the world. For more than 100 years, the French brand has been committed to creating the highest quality products, in 2008, using an innovative process, Rousselot started to produce Peptan collagen peptides, and in 2021 Peptan Marine was launched.
From the sourcing of raw materials to the final products, Rousselot is committed to delivering the highest quality products and ensuring full traceability every step of the way. Peptan Marine is manufactured by Rousselot in its state-of-the-art certified plants in France, meeting the highest international food and quality standards.
With superior bioavailability, Peptan Marine has always been one of the most sought-after bioactive collagen peptides.
Peptan collagen peptides comply with the rules on animal testing related to the development or safety assessment of cosmetic products or its ingredients as formulated in Regulation (EC) N°1223/2009 on cosmetic products and further amendments.
Collagen peptides can be used as an ingredient in the development of cosmetic products. In the validation of the safety of Rousselot collagen peptides, no animal testing has been performed.
Aker BioMarine was the first krill fishery to receive the MSC (Marine Stewardship Council), the highest renowned sustainability certification available. It scored highest in a comparison of wild-capture fisheries certification schemes initiated by WWF.
Ingredients that carry the blue MSC label have demonstrated that they come from a fishery that meets the most stringent sustainability standards and that all products are traceable throughout the supply chain.
Aker BioMarine is known for proprietary Eco-Harvesting technologies, which reduces by-catch to near-zero.
The Eco-Harvesting technology employs a continuous mid-water trawl system that is guarded by a fine mesh net, which prevents anything larger than krill from entering. Underwater cameras monitor the system. Rather than leaving a trawl to get the catch on board, a conveyor hose is attached to the end of the net, which remains underwater throughout the entire operation. A continuous stream of water flows through the hose, bringing the live krill directly into the ship, while minimizing by-catch.
All catches of krill are reported to CCAMLR (Commission of the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) which manages and regulates all Antarctic marine ecosystems. Currently, commercial krill fishing in the Southern Ocean takes place mainly in Area 48. The management of the fishery is very stable, as the consensus of 25 nations is required to change Antarctic fishery regulations.
Compared to other fisheries where precautionary catch limits are set to 10% of the biomass the total allowable catch of Antarctic krill is set to 1% of the biomass. Together, the whole industry only fish 0.3% of the biomass in subarea 48, located around the Antarctic Peninsula, the Orkney Islands and South Georgia.
The Antarctic krill fishery has for the fourth year in a row received an “A” ranking from the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership for having a biomass that is deemed to be in very good condition.
In addition to internal efforts to ensure a sustainable fishery, the Antarctic Krill fishery is one of the world’s strongest regulated fisheries.
