There’s marine collagen cropping up everywhere and for everyone. It’s an exciting, rapidly evolving time in ingestible beauty. But we know it can be overwhelming. When you’re considering a collagen supplement – its efficacy and its benefits for your beauty concerns – there’s a lot of research that goes into finding the right marine collagen for you.
So, we’re taking a deep dive into Vida Glow’s Natural Marine Collagen. Discover where Vida Glow collagen is sourced, our commitment to sustainability and the differences between farmed and wild-caught marine collagen.
This is everything you need to know about marine collagen sourcing – so you can make an informed decision and have confidence in your ingestible beauty routine.
Where does Vida Glow collagen come from?
Vida Glow’s collagen is sustainably sourced from open-water farms. Our fish are raised in river and lake farms across Europe. Vida Glow’s collagen peptides are extracted from the skin of fish – and not scales. Fish skin is a quality by-product of the food industry, which would otherwise be discarded.
By turning the skin of fish into high-value, efficacious ingestible beauty, marine collagen makes the most of aquaculture.
Is farmed fish sustainable?
Sourcing collagen from farmed fish is the most sustainable way to procure natural collagen.
Vida Glow only partners with suppliers who share our commitment to environmentally and socially responsible aquaculture – and a more sustainable future. To maintain strict sustainability standards, our suppliers are certified with the Global G.A.P, The Aquaculture Stewardship Council and Best Aquaculture Practices. This means our collagen is certified to meet high food safety, social practice, animal welfare and environmental and ecological care standards. By sourcing our marine collagen from farmed fish, there’s minimal risk of disturbances to marine ecosystems. And there’s no risk of by-catch of other marine life like dolphins and jellyfish.
What are the benefits of farmed fish? Is it safe?
Farmed fish are completely safe to consume, and don’t compromise the purity of our marine collagen.
In open-water farms, our suppliers control their marine environments to create Vida Glow’s consistent, quality raw materials. And all without the use of veterinary drugs like growth hormones.
Our marine collagen is also subject to over 300 routine safety and quality checks – and is tested for heavy metals including arsenic, lead and mercury. Every batch is sifted, filtered and purified four times during production to ensure our marine collagen is free of containments like microplastics and certified 100% safe for human consumption. The presence of microplastics is also prevented by using the skin of fish – not fillets and livers where microplastics can be found.
What type of fish do we use?
Our collagen is sourced from a range of fish species. This mitigates biodiversity implications, and completes the complex amino acid necessary to deliver clinical results.
Once our suppliers harvest and fillet fish for the food industry, its skin is batched and immediately frozen for marine collagen production. To ensure the safety and quality control of our marine collagen, each batch of our raw materials is recorded. We can trace our marine collagen from the beginning of our production chain with raw material suppliers through to your purchase.
