Marine Enzyme Science

Dr Bragi’s patented marine enzymes are like no other cosmetic ingredient available...when subjected to body temperature, they become ‘super-active’ and more powerful than other enzymes.

Enzymes are biocatalysts, essential protein molecules that dramatically speed up cellular processes in all living beings. All harmful microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, fungi etc.) are essentially protein based. The marine enzymes used in Dr Bragi's patented formulation specifically target these proteins by disabling them and therefore protecting the skin. Their unique ability to penetrate the skin’s epidermis layer also encourages cellular rejuvenation and cleansing from within.

Dr Bragi’s patented marine enzymes are like no other cosmetic ingredient available, unlike other enzymes used in skincare, marine enzymes are adapted to function in the depths of the ocean with temperatures reaching as low as -2°C. When subjected to body temperature, they become ‘super-active’ and more powerful than other enzymes.

Dr Bragi’s marine enzyme formulation was patented in 1999 for cosmetic and pharmaceutical use, and continues to be the subject of clinical studies around the world.

The marine enzyme dramatically outperforms the "other enzyme" making it far more beneficial for use in skincare.
