The Original "Lobster Lotion"
The New Stuff ~ The Good Stuff
Seals in moisture for deep hydration with the mouthwatering scent of maple syrup, wild blueberries, cinnamon, butter and caramelized vanilla... like a cozy brunch in a cabin in Maine.
Enjoy all day!
The new superpowered barrier-repairing Marine ingredient ~ A once natural byproduct of lobster processing, turned upcycled game-changer.
Born from scratching our own itch
We're Bioengineers that worked with lobster scientists, researching a glycoprotein that allows lobsters to regenerate limbs - in the same way they do this, they help repair the skin barrier!
After trying everything to clear our own eczema, we experimented with a homemade glycoprotein-rich formula... The results changed everything.
An Upcycled, Natural Byproduct
Glycoproteins are a natural byproduct of lobster processing - they go right down the drain!
We partnered with Luke's Lobster to sustainably & ethically collect them.
Finally, as Bioengineers we do a *little* chemistry, turning what would otherwise be wasted into a powerful, natural skincare ingredient.
Loved by Real People
"My daughter was diagnosed with severe psoriasis at age 3. She tried countless creams and ointments, and had to go on biologics, but she still has break through spots. We were gifted a bottle of Marin from a friend, and it has helped these break through spots and my daughter now says, “Can I put on my lobster cream now?!”
"This lotion has given me real results for my Maine skin. It calms red dry blotches from the cold, controls the oil and gives my face an overall smooth hydrated feeling all day without that acne causing greasy feeling. And?! I feel confident again to do what I love without makeup."
Kathy & Patrick, Marine Biologists
"We love to see companies find creative ways to use an ocean resource that would otherwise get discarded. Rather than contributing to the total take of lobsters, Marin collaborates with Maine's lobstering industry to source their product from lobsters already caught and destined for the dinner table. This community cooperation and 100% utilization of the marine resources we do extract is exactly what we like to see as marine scientists."
Oh, and we did the Science
As Bioengineers, it was important for us to create a widely accessible, clinically-backed ingredient for the good of all.
After discovering glycoproteins using them for our own skin (n=1), we self-funded (sorry big pharma) the In Vitro + In Vivo work to launch the next barrier-repairing super-ingredient.
On the Cellular level, it turns out Glycoproteins are excellent at:
- Increasing Dermal and Epidermal Barrier Health & Repair
- Stimulating Fibroblast Proliferation
- Increasing Natural Hyaluronic Acid Production
- Stimulating Collagen Synthesis
- Increasing Overall Skin Cell Viability
In a Clinical Study of 33 Participants with Eczema:
Conducted by a Non-Biased, 3rd Party Lab
Experienced Instant Relief from Symptoms of Eczema
*Immediately After First Use
Reported Skin Was Less Itchy, Flaky, Red and Dry
*After 4 Weeks of Daily Use
Reported Skin Looked and Felt Significantly Healthier
*After 4 Weeks of Daily Use
