Marinova has developed two fucoidan extracts specifically for topical applications: Maritech® Bright and Maritech® Reverse.


Maritech® Bright

• Brightening  •Healthy-aging •Antioxidant •Balancing

Maritech® Bright is a natural, clinically validated skin brightening ingredient extracted from polyphenol-rich Fucus vesiculosus seaweed (commonly known as bladderwrack). This COSMOS organic-certified skincare ingredient combines the potent bioactivity of fucoidan with the highly anti-oxidant and skin brightening properties of marine polyphenols.

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 aging.

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.


Maritech® Reverse

•Healthy-aging • Protecting •Soothing •Balancing

Maritech® Reverse is a high-purity fucoidan extract with clinically proven soothing, protecting and anti-aging properties. This natural skincare ingredient is extracted from wild grown Undaria pinnatifida seaweed (commonly known as wakame) from the pristine ocean waters of Patagonia and Tasmania.

Spawned from nature's ingenuity, Maritech® Reverse is a natural, soothing ingredient designed to maintain the youthful appearance of skin by protecting its building blocks and enhancing dermal condition. Research into the effects of Maritech® Reverse on skin microbiome has also demonstrated the potential for this ingredient to support a healthy epidermal barrier and assist in the balancing of skin microbiome.

Maritech® Reverse is COSMOS organic-certified and provides an unrivalled combination of soothing, protecting and balancing properties for contemporary skincare formulations.
