Collagen’s Proven Health Solutions
Collagen plays a vital role in the functions of nearly all of our system organs and tissues and is a key bioactive to renew cells in multiple areas of the body. Type I collagen is best known for providing the basis for beautiful skin, strong connective tissues and healthy bones. But the real advantage to collagen supplementation lies in its ability to enhance regeneration of the collagen cycle and stimulate cells to restore body tissues. A building block for all the body’s systems, it also is a major component of membranes that surround and protect the internal organs, and of blood vessels, ligaments, tendons and bones. One-quarter to one-third of all the protein in the body is collagen protein. Collagen peptides have scientifically proven benefits for health, wellness and beauty and offer superior functionalities for those who want to remain healthy and active throughout their lives.
Marine collagen offers a range of health and wellness benefits that can have a profound effect on our overall quality of life.

Why Nippi Collagen?
FreshWater™ Collagen is an all-natural collagen peptide extracted from pure marine sources. Produced from 100% fish skin and scales that would otherwise be discarded, Nippi collagen is sourced from a sustainable and traceable supply chain. Offered in a variety of grades and forms, FreshWater™ Collagen is virtually tasteless and odorless, allowing it to be easily added to food, beverages and nutraceutical applications.
Using fish as a superior alternative to bovine, porcine and chicken collagen, FreshWater™ Collagen is characterized by its low molecular weight resulting in improved digestibility and superb bioavailability. Our product is the result of a complex and controlled hydrolysis process to obtain premium collagen peptides that are highly soluble.
Science and Research
In the past years, there have been scientific advancements and accumulated evidence for the essential role of collagen and the benefits of ingesting collagen peptide for skin, bone and joint health and numerous other applications in improving health and wellness. Collagen holds great promise as a key ingredient applicable to a wide spectrum of consumers.
FreshWater™ Select and Standard
To provide consistent, high-quality and environmentally friendly products, Nippi extracts fish collagen peptides for our Select and Standard grades using several farmed species that are considered to be the best choice for sustainability by the Aquaculture Certification Council. The fish are raised conforming to quality standards and in environmentally sustainable production systems.
FreshWater™ 1000 – Topical Marine Peptides
Topical FreshWater™ 1000 offers a high-performance collagen peptide for easily absorbed topical applications. FreshWater™ 1000 moisturizes the skin and contributes to smoothness and suppleness while boosting elastin and collagen synthesis. Our unique profile of high-mesh, low-molecular-weight peptides allows it to actively penetrate the transdermal skin layers
Research published by the International Research Journal of Pharmacy, 2(10), 2011, has shown that collagen peptide extracted from fish scales consisting of small peptide molecules has a superior bioavailability and digestibility compared to other collagen products due to lower molecular weight.
Fish Collagen Peptides
Marine collagen peptides are characterized by their specific amino acid composition, with a high concentration of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline. These amino acids have nutri-functional properties regarding health, wellness and beauty.
Free from Animal-Induced Diseases
Because FreshWater™ Collagen is extracted from fish, it is free from bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), foot-and-mouth disease and bird virus.
Amino Acid Profile
Collagen proteins contain 18 different amino acids, of which nine are essential for human life.
During the manufacturing process, allergens are removed through a carefully controlled washing procedure, resulting in a hydrolyzed fish collagen free of allergens.
FreshWater™ Collagen does not form a gel and dissolves easily in cold water, even at relatively high concentrations. As a highly bioavailable protein with a neutral odor and taste, collagen peptides provide exceptional solubility and instant dispersibility, and rarely interact with other ingredients. Finished application versatility includes:
