How we do it

How we do it


Pioneering Squalene Sourcing Strategies

Emphasizing environmental responsibility, our innovative approach prioritizes amaranth oil over conventional animal- and plant-based squalene sources. This a smaller ecological footprint and ensuring greater process efficacy due to higher concentration. Our squalene offers superior bioavailability, providing deep skin penetration and delivery of essential nutrients and antioxidants.

Results-Oriented Solutions

Strategic insights

Transparency and traceability are at the core of our mission. Our goal is to ensure a supply chain that is transparent at every step, from sourcing to production. We take pride in fostering strong relationships with our partners and stakeholders, enabling us to maintain a traceable and accountable process. This commitment allows us to uphold the highest standards of sustainability and ethics, as we work towards our shared vision of preserving our oceans and promoting responsible practices in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

Preserving Ocean Guardians

The Vital Role of Sharks in Climate Resilience

We value sharks as guardians of our oceans, but millions perish yearly due to the shark liver oil squalene demand, devastating marine ecosystems. Beyond their vital role in biodiversity, sharks contribute to carbon sequestration through the ‘shark carbon sink’. With sharks being slow to reproduce and mature, their populations cannot withstand the high levels of fishing pressure and demand for their liver oil. Our commitment to plant-based squalene from amaranth aims to protect sharks, preserve oceans, and contribute to keeping our planet’s
delicate ecological balance.

Sustainable Sourcing

Amaranth - A Catalyst for Positive Change

We have chosen amaranth as our source of plant-based squalene. Amaranth requires less water than other sources, endures harsh weather, and its crops provide employment under fair working conditions globally. By selecting amaranth, we’re equally committed to preserving the planet’s oceans and freshwater reserves.

Nurturing Companies Towards Sustainability

Fostering Change and Responsibility

positive impact. By choosing us, they gain not only ethically sourced products but also contribute to ocean  conservation.
