KAI is Hawaiian for the sea, KAIDERMA® means sea and skin which defines our focus on marine based skin therapies. Our product formulations are centered upon the powerful therapeutic properties of unique marine active ingredients and select botanical oils.
Many of the functional ingredients included in KAIDERMA® products have marine origins. The oceans are a rich source of novel bioactive compounds many of which exhibit powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, shield against sun damage and support skin barrier function. It is believed that many of these compounds evolved to help marine organisms survive intense exposure to sunlight, salinity and temperature extremes. Science is just beginning to uncover a wealth of marine compounds with therapeutic activity, and we are committed to incorporate important new discoveries into KAIDERMA® products.
Each formulation is based on scientific research using ingredients which are natural and sustainably harvested. Combining the best of science with the power of the sea yields products which will naturally repair, protect and beautify your skin while combating skin aging.
KAIDERMA® skin care products are created in the laboratory of Mariner Biomedical, Inc. Mariner Biomedical was founded by a husband and wife team with a combined 50 years of experience in pharmaceutical and clinical research. All KAIDERMA® product formulations are developed by a chemist whose qualifications include 9 years as a research chemist at a major pharmaceutical company, over 20 years conducting clinical trials and completion of graduate studies in marine natural products chemistry. These unique qualifications have led to the development of new and highly effective skin care therapies based on extensive research and the latest discoveries in marine science.
