Scoular and Weishardt To Market Naticol in the US

November 6, 2012


• The Scoular Company’s Food Ingredients Group will serve as the exclusive distributor of nutricosmetic ingredient Naticol in the US. Used as an ingredient in women’s anti-aging products, Naticol is a marine collagen peptide produced by French manufacturer Weishardt.

“Marine collagen peptides are a brand new generation of collagen peptides, and we’re very excited to offer this scientifically-backed ingredient to our customers who are positioning themselves to take advantage of the growing market for women’s anti-aging products,” said Anne Brown, senior manager of Scoular’s Food Ingredients Group.

Produced from fish skins and scales, marine hydrolyzed collagen is shown to have several nutritional and health benefits related to anti-aging according to a whitepaper recently released by Weishardt and The Scoular Company. The whitepaper features the results of two studies, including a human clinical study conducted in the spring of 2012.

Both human clinical studies revealed that users of Naticol marine collagen peptides experienced improvements in skin hydration and elasticity as well as a reduction in wrinkles.

Research from additional studies also suggest that ingested marine hydrolyzed collagen has anti-inflammatory properties, that it may improve the absorption of dietary calcium, and that it has hydrating properties when applied topically.

Naticol is a hydrolyzed collagen peptide, one of the few protein ingredients that dissolves and becomes clear in water, Its lack of color, odor and taste have made it a widely-used ingredient in Japanese and European nutricosmetics.
