Our marine collagen is extracted
from the skin of wild ocean salmon by our own unique method. It is the major
ingredient of our marine collagen cosmetics. As wild salmon migrate and
travel the ocean, they are less affected by dioxins or heavy metals
discharged from the land. We do not use hatchery fish in our process,
eliminating any concern about the harmful effects of hormones. Because
FINN's Marine Collagen does not contain collagen from livestock, there is no
need to worry about infectious diseases carried by them. Use of Finn's
Marine Collagen is safe and worry free.
For many years, salmon skin collagen has been known by experts to be the
best ingredient for cosmetics because of its superior power to penetrate
human skin. Unlike collagen extracted from other animals, salmon collagen
melts at a very low temperature, well below the temperature of the human
body. It easily melts on the skin and is gradually absorbed. (Temp. of
dissolution; pig: about 40°C,
cow: about 38°C,
salmon: about 18°C)
Because collagen from other sources melts at a much higher temperature, it
often sits on the skin without melting or being absorbed.
Until recently, salmon collagen has not been extracted successfully to
produce high quality cosmetic products. Salmon collagen is very difficult to
be extracted as it easily decomposes and changes at about temperature of 18°C.
Finn Canada has solved this problem using our own special technique and is
successfully producing high quality salmon collagen. Although the acid
extraction method has been commonly used for extracting collagen, Finn
Canada has adopted an alkaline extraction method which produces a top
quality collagen with greater mineral and amino acid content than collagen
extracted by the acid extraction method. Using collagen, extracted by an
alkaline method, we create the best product for skin care. Even though our
process takes approximately two months to mature, while an acid extraction
method is complete in two weeks, we have chosen an alkaline method because
of the superior collagen we can produce that way. After extraction is
complete, through our refinery process we meticulously remove all unpleasant
fish smells while retaining in our product the high nutrient value and
diverse amino acids and minerals found in wild salmon. Only then is Finn's
Marine Collagen passed on to our cosmetic experts to use in the production
of our fine marine collagen cosmetics.
Our strong determination to make the best cosmetic products is exhibited in
every step we take.
