World Oceans Day Update: Our Partnership with Oceana

At Biossance, ocean conservation is part of our DNA. As we celebrate World Oceans Day, we wanted to pause to pay special attention to the important work of our sustainability partner, Oceana.

What is Oceana?

As the world’s largest international advocacy group focused solely on ocean conservation, Oceana is working to protect sensitive habitats and help restore our oceans’ biodiversity and abundance.

Oceana was established by a group of leading foundations — The Pew Charitable Trusts, Oak Foundation, Marisla Foundation (formerly Homeland Foundation), Sandler Foundation, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund — after a 1999 study they commissioned discovered that less than 0.5% of all resources spent by environmental nonprofit groups in the United States went to ocean advocacy.

No organization was working exclusively to protect and restore the oceans on a global scale. Oceana’s founders wanted to fill that gap, so they created an international organization focused solely on oceans, dedicated towards achieving real change through goal-driven, science-backed policy campaigns.

Oceana has achieved more than 300 policy victories and protected 4 million square miles of ocean since its founding.

Why Have We Partnered with Them?

For generations, beauty products were fortified with squalane - an exceptional moisturizer naturally found in human skin - sourced from shark livers. Our vegan, bio fermented squalane provides a solution by creating a superior alternative using sugarcane grown respectfully towards people and the planet.

This new, vegan squalane is a molecular match for the moisture found in our skin. Our squalane is purer, more stable, and effective than shark squalane and it doesn’t have the environmental impact of the other traditional alternative, olive-derived squalane.

Our mission of science-driven, sustainable beauty beautifully compliments Oceana’s policy-driven approach.

To celebrate this National Oceans Day, we’ve launched a Limited Edition of our award-winning Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum in a gorgeous blue, gift-sized bottle. Fans of our bestselling serum call it “nature’s Botox” for its ability to instantly plump and quench thanks in part to the water-binding properties of ectoin. We’ve paired this powerful, protective hydrator with our rapid plumping complex to deliver instant, long-lasting hydration alongside a dramatic improvement in elasticity thanks to copper peptides. Our groundbreaking super ingredient, squalane ingredients penetrate for lasting hydration, luminosity, and bounce.
