Fucoidan: A future in balancing skin microbiome

Australian company Marinova discusses the natural benefits of high purity fucoidan extracts for topical use

Fucoidan is a long-chain polysaccharide found naturally in brown seaweeds. On the back of extensive immuno-modulatory, antiinflammatory, digestive health and anti-cancer research, fucoidan is increasingly being utilised in a range of dietary supplements. In recent years, mounting anti-ageing evidence has also placed this novel marine ingredient on the radar of skin care formulators. 

High purity, certified organic fucoidan ingredients with global regulatory acceptance are rapidly rising to the forefront of the blue beauty movement. Not only do they tick all the right boxes in terms of sustainability and ethical sourcing but also in terms of efficacy and ease of formulation. The potential benefits of fucoidan on skin health are increasingly being reported in scientific literature and are capturing the attention of some the world’s leading skin care brands. 

Fucoidan’s role in nature is to protect the seaweed against a range of external stresses, including environmental pathogens. Australian biotechnology company Marinova was the first to capture these natural benefits for topical use, launching two high purity fucoidan extracts onto the global skin care market over a decade ago. Backed by clinical evidence, Maritech® Bright, derived from Fucus vesiculosus seaweed, and Maritech Reverse, derived from Undaria pinnatifida seaweed, both offer profound antiageing properties.1
