What is Marine Collagen?

Learn why marine collagen supplements are the best you can get for skin rejuvenation.

Collagen supplements and skincare products derive collagen from four main sources: Bovine (cows), Porcine (pigs), Chicken collagen and Fish (Marine) collagen. Bovine, Porcine and Chicken Collagen are cheaper and more common than Marine Collagen.

Collagen from cows, pigs and chickens are extracted from their skin, tendons and cartilage. They are mainly Type 2 Collagen (for joints and tendons) and very little Type 1.

Fish or Marine Collagen  is extracted from either the meat or scales of cold sea fish and is primarily Type 1 and Type 3 collagen. 

Fish collagen has been shown to have superior bio-availability, which is the rate at which it is absorbed into the blood stream through our intestinal wall. This means that Marine Collagen enters the bloodstream quicker than other types of collagen, so it is the best source of collagen for your skin. What is marine collagen - Revive Active - Beauty Complex

In fact, Marine Collagen is up to 1.5 times more absorbent than Bovine, Porcine or Chicken Collagen, because of its optimum molecular weight.


Marine Collagen is also the right type of collagen (Type 1 & 3) needed for the building blocks of our skin. 

Because Marine Collagen is extracted from fish, it is free from Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) (Mad Cow Disease), Hoof-and-Mouth disease and Bird Viruses - an added health bonus.

Benefits of Marine Collagen Peptides for Skin Rejuvenation 

Peptan is the world’s leading collagen peptides brand, produced and marketed by Rousselot. Rousselot is the leading global manufacturer of collagen and gelatin-based solutions for the pharmaceutical, food & nutrition industries. 

Peptan® collagen peptides are so-called Type 1 Collagen Peptides. This means they are identical to the collagens found in human bones and skin. Peptan® is a high-purity, natural bio active product, containing more than 97% protein. 

Peptan collagen peptides are optimized for high bioavailability and activity, and their hydrolyzed form makes them easily digestible by humans. Peptan is a bio active ingredient that has been specifically developed to deliver multiple health benefits and functional properties. 

Peptan contains 18 amino acids, the building blocks of our tissues and the primary component of proteins. Glycine, proline and hydroxyproline represent around 50% of Peptan’s total amino acid content; the glycine and proline concentration in Peptan is 10 to 20 times higher than in other proteins. As a result, Peptan offers health benefits that cannot be found in other protein sources.

Each sachet of Beauty Complex contains 7,000mg of Peptan® Marine Collagen, 100mg Phytoceramides and 100mg Hyaluronic Acid. It is a triple action formula providing a solid foundation for optimum skin moisture and plumpness - helping to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
