A revolutionary method of converting a collagen solution into a dry, dense collagen fibre.
The ActivLayr skin delivery platform is a patented technology based on the denatured whole chains of type 1 collagen extracted from NZ hoki fish skins. Collagen extracted from the hoki fish is solubilised with preferred bioactives, and is turned into nanofibre via our proprietary Sonic Electrospinning process. During this process the bioactives (depending on the nature of bioactives) are encapsulated or chemically bonded to the nanofibres and attain an even distribution on the matrix. The bioactives remain stable on the matrix during storage, under moisture-free ambient conditions. On exposure to moistened skin, the nanofibres dissolve, thereby releasing the bioactives.
The team and the technology
From waste to value
Discover the ecosystem behind our products
Hoki fish are caught using sustainable fishing practices and the skins, usually a byproduct, are put through a process which extracts the high grade collagen.
Grape seed and kiwifruit Vinanza extracts are obtained through a pure water extraction process.
The collagen from the hoki and the Vinanza extracts are sent to Revolution Fibres, where we formulate a water-based ActivLayr solution, ready to be electrospun.
Revolution Fibres’ proprietary ‘Sonic Electrospinning’ machines manufacture the nanofibre into rolls which are then cut and packaged for various skin health and beauty applications.
ActivLayr products are designed for specific eg. under eye patches.
