Our core research explores the way natural bioactives, working in synergy, create measurable and beneficial effects on skin health and longevity. Collectively, our team has more than 50 years of experience, with specific expertise in the areas of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, UV-protection, and clinical and cell-based research.
Our desire to create products that deliver beauty you can see, and feel, start with a strong foundation of research. While nutraceuticals have been extensively researched for a wide range of health benefits Bend is pioneering research into their role in skin health and longevity.
Our talented researchers have decades of experience and remain at the forefront of this exciting new field conducting clinical and pre-clinical studies. Some of our research has been published in peer-reviewed journals and we’ve made them available for everyone to read.
Our scientific team can spend years simply working on new products ensuring high standards for both quality and purity as well as how ingredients, in the right combination, create synergistic effects. You could say we have good chemistry.
One additional thing that’s important to us. Equal to our high standards for quality and efficacy, we research how our ingredients impact the planet. Developing a sustainable supply chain can be a real challenge but as a beauty company, we want to elevate beauty for both people and the planet.
As a proudly Canadian company, we are thrilled to conduct this research in our hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and encourage you to check out our published clinical research.

MARINE COLLAGEN + CO-FACTORS: THE ULTIMATE BUILDING BLOCK FOR HEALTHY SKIN, HAIR AND NAILS
Don’t just build collagen, build healthy collagen. The synergy of fish collagen peptides, silicon and whole food vitamin C help protect against skin aging while supporting hair and nail health. A daily dose of Marine Collagen + Co-Factor benefits include:
- Build: Helps in collagen formation
- Support: Helps to maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails
- Protect: Source of an antioxidant that helps protect against free radicals
- Repair: Helps in wound healing
Research has shown that collagen peptides can stimulate cells to increase collagen production. Topical applications of collagen would appear to be a logical approach, however, the barrier properties of the skin’s outer layer, the epidermis, prevents collagen peptides from reaching the dermal layer, the site of the collagen matrix.
When consumed orally, collagen peptides are absorbed into the bloodstream and reach the dermis where they stimulate the production of collagen as well as hyaluronic acid, another important component of the skin’s collagen matrix.
Vitamin C and the mineral Silicon are essential co-factors in a process called collagen crosslinking. This process improves collagen strength, function, and makes it more resistant to damage. Additionally, Vitamin C is an important skin antioxidant and Silicon maintains the health of skin, hair and nails.
