Maritech® Bright

Maritech® Bright


Maritech® Bright is a highly characterised, certified organic fucoidan-polyphenol ingredient sourced from wild harvested Fucus vesiculosus seaweed. This seaweed (commonly known as bladderwrack) grows in the pristine ocean waters of Nova Scotia, Canada, where it is harvested on an environmentally sustainable basis.

Marine polyphenols and fucoidans naturally protect Fucus vesiculosus against a range of external stresses, including UV damage and marine-borne pathogens and toxins. In nature these compounds provide superior antioxidant activity and protect against the damaging effects of free radicals. Maritech® Bright combines both of these marine actives in one convenient ingredient. 

Clinical studies have shown that Maritech® Bright is safe, non-sensitising and highly effective at brightening skin. It enhances radiance and visibly reduces the appearance of age spot pigmentation. Maritech® Bright is further supported by research into the inhibition of elastase, collagenase and tyrosinase – key enzymes known to accelerate the visible signs of ageing.

Research into the effects of Maritech® Bright on skin microbiome demonstrates the potential to support a healthy epidermal barrier and assist in the balancing of skin microbiome.
