JUNE 2005

Prior to establishing Marine Essence Biosciences (ME-Bio), the company’s investors had began their journey searching for collagen materials and raw materials along with research institutes and experienced researchers related to marine organisms

EARLY 2010

We started collecting the DNA and RNA extracted from the seabed of French Tahiti, Quebec, Canada, etc. After approximately five years of data gathering, the investors successfully completed the DNA and RNA database of sea echinoderms by the end of 2015 and early 2016, respectively


Marine Essence Biosciences was then founded. Based on the echinoderms' DNA and RNA databases, the researchers began their trial production of MCT collagen extracted from selected sea echinoderms for skin regeneration


ME-Bio inaugurated Marine Essence Biosciences Corporation of USA warehouse at Chino, CA. It is a biotech-focus facility equipped with state-of-the-art scientific instrumentations and automated production machines that support R&D and pilot production of raw materials, cosmetics and supplements


ME-Bio completed the R&D and scaling-up projects for the manufacturing of echinoderm collagen-based luxury cosmetic line. ME-Bio will also completed the submission of the trademark application to the USPTO on its luxury cosmetic mark name


ME-Bio’s luxury cosmetic line and supplement based on echinoderm collagen was launched. FDA Facility Establishment for medical devoce(manufacturer/importer) Identification number assigned. ISO 9001:2015 & ISO 22716:2007 Certified. Marine Essence Trademark Approved.
INCI Name Accepted: Soluable Collagen Application No. 5-02-2020 10457



As the "Queen of the Pacific," Tahiti is engulfed with marine life such as sea cucumbers. Sea cucumbers being a vital part of the livelihood of Tahiti, we have been working with the local community every year to return young sea cucumbers to their habitat for further growth. It is our responsibility to maintain a sustainable environment.


Quebec has strict laws regarding environmental conservation. Canada is proactive in regulating oceans and marine resource management. It encourages its communities to understand the oceans and use marine resources sustainably, promoting a precautionary approach towards conservation. They are all about preserving the marine environment and so are we.
