The collaboration will start with innoVactiv’s distribution of Abyss’ Cartidyss ingredient, for supporting optimal skin structure
Abyss Ingredients has entered into a partnership agreement with innoVactiv for the distribution of its ‘Premium’ ingredients in North America. innoVactiv is a Canadian supplier of dietary ingredients servicing clients in over 15 countries.
“The publication of the clinical results of Cartidyss on skin beauty in Molecules a few weeks ago is the opportunity we have been waiting for to formalise our partnership with innoVactiv for the commercialisation of our products, in particular Cartidyss, in North America,” the company said.
The companies say their partnership arises from common drivers: science, differentiation, expertise, people well-being and healthy ageing. The collaboration will start with innoVactiv’s distribution of Abyss’ Cartidyss ingredient, for supporting optimal skin structure and its youthful appearance.
“The development of sustainable marine ingredients has always been the mission of Abyss Ingredients. Cartidyss was born out of years of research showing the superior ability of fish-derived collagen peptides to enhance connective tissue health. Proprietary human clinical study has concluded that Cartidyss could help support healthy skin and biophysical function, while reducing wrinkles and smoothing skin texture. With their strong background in science-based cosmetic and nutrition ingredients, we felt innoVactiv was the ideal partner to help position our ingredients in North America” said Alexis Méhaignerie, CEO of Abyss Ingredients.
“innoVactiv has been heavily involved in marine ingredients, notably with our flagship ingredient InSea2 derived from brown seaweeds. Introducing a superior option for a collagen ingredient has always been on the scope for us and we felt we have found the best collagen ingredient available with Cartidyss from Abyss Ingredients. Not only is it coming from a sustainable marine source, which we like, but also brings tangible benefits for a number of skin health applications” completed Patrice Dionne, CEO of innoVactiv.
