Collagen Insights

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and plays a vital role in skin health and signs of aging. Collagen is responsible for the structure, stability, and strength of the dermal skin layers. After the age of 20, the natural production of collagen decreases by about 1% per year, causing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen is a mainstream ingredient in the world of beauty and wellness. Yet conventional animal-derived collagens contradicts the animal-free, clean, and sustainable beauty movements. Biodesigned collagen not only mimics the function of traditional collagen, but can elevate the protein with higher performance and functionality with unmatched consistency, purity, and quality.​

Marine Inspired,
not Marine Derived

The Blue Beauty movements is an ocean and planet positive initiative, yet it is driving the use of marine-derived ingredients in beauty products. Through the power and innovation of biotechnology, we can create and produce biomimetic proteins that harness the power of nature without the extraction.  Collume® is a marine-inspired vegan collagen, mimicking animal-derived collagen sources made using precision fermentation.
