Indigo Collagen’s Commitment to Sustainability
We exclusively use North Atlantic wild-caught fish: Studies show that using wild-caught, deep-sea white fish are shown to have one of the lowest impacts on the environment; especially in comparison to sourcing collagen from bovine or other protein sources.
Transparent end-to-end supply: Our marine collagen powder is fished in the wild, processed in our own facility, and packaged by our team, allowing us to ensure strict quality controls and produce a product that meets our values and expectations for excellence.
We give back what we take: No overfishing around here! We only use fish that is already going to be used for food, by fishermen with sustainable practices. We then take the fish skins that would normally be thrown away and extract them for collagen.
