The Maritech® range of skin care extracts consists of highly-purified, low molecular weight fucoidan complexes designed specifically for cosmetic and dermatological applications.
Maritech® Bright is a novel, polyphenol-rich fucoidan extract developed specifically for skin whitening applications. Comprising 90% fucoidan-polyphenol complex, Maritech® Bright combines the immuno-stimulatory benefits of fucoidan with the potent anti-oxidant properties imparted by the polyphenol fraction. Extracted from Fucus vesiculosis seaweed growing naturally in the crystal-clear waters of Nova Scotia, this innovative product has Organic, Kosher and Halal accreditations.
Marinova has developed Maritech® Bright as an effective, natural alternative to the existing ingredients used to lighten skin tone, many of which increase skin sensitivity and dermal damage. In vitro analysis has already shown that Maritech® Bright has powerful efficacy in inhibiting tyrosinase – an enzyme responsible for producing melanin which, in turn, causes skin darkening and patchiness. Marinova is currently completing human clinical studies to confirm the findings from our initial in vitro analyses.
Maritech® Reverse is a low molecular weight extract containing 85% fucoidan (min) and enriched with calcium and potassium. Extracted from organic Undaria pinnatifida, Maritech® Reverse has been developed specifically for anti-ageing skin care applications. The product has been shown to inhibit the glycation, elastase and hyaluronidase processes, all of which are closely associated with skin ageing. Comprehensive human clinical studies are currently being conducted on this novel ingredient.
