Want to know where our collagen comes from?
Our Marine Collagen powders are sourced from the pristine arctic waters off Canada from wild-caught deep-sea fish. We use only fish skin, where the highest concentration of pure collagen can be extracted. Our Collagen Peptide powders are from grass-fed, pasture-raised cattle from Argentina. The collagen is extracted through natural processes, using purely hot water, centrifuge and food-grade enzymes. You can rest assured that we can trace every batch of collagen and that all our processes are independently verified.
PURE & PREMIUM
The raw material we use to create our marine collagen products is sourced from the Canadian North Atlantic Ocean. The Canadian government regulates the species of fish via the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.
Canada has some of the strictest standards, policies and penalties for illegal fishing, destruction of habitat, and restrictions on fishing practices. The fish stock is monitored by government bodies and third-party scientists to ensure the health and safety of the fish species and habitat.
We only use the by-products from the food fish industry, the fish skins that remain from fish filleting, that would normally go to waste.
We source from within set quotas, seasons of catch and fishing grounds. We go even further than the regulations require, and we only source fish that are line-caught, not from fishing nets, that can catch dolphins, turtles and other marine life.
We work very closely with our fishing partners, who provide detailed information on the catch areas, species, vessel names and process facility names and addresses to confirm the origin of the raw material supply, so all material is fully traceable.
We have a strong commitment to ensuring that our marine collagen is sourced from sustainable, well-managed fish stocks and caught using legal fishing practices.
ETHICAL & RESPONSIBLE
Our bovine collagen is sourced from a small, independently owned farm in Argentina*.
We know the providence and source our bovine from farms with full traceability from start to finish.
The cattle are pasture-raised and free to roam. They are purely grass-fed, and the whole process is independently verified.
Our collagen is a high-grade quality source and never from bone (this is very common in the collagen industry to use this source) because of the intensive chemical process needed to release collagen from the bone. We only use collagen from hide and never by acid extraction. Our process uses hot water, centrifuge filtering and food-grade enzymes.
* We do not source any collagen from Brazil and never have been associated with any farming business in Brazil because of the Amazon deforestation issues there, which we have been aware of and have never worked with these suppliers due to the issues with this.
