As the market and interest for all natural marine based bioactives continiue to grow, the Swedish personal care research and development company Zona Nordic AB is looking to build on this momentum and take the position as a technology leader in the market place.

The company is working within marine biotechnology, using patented marine enzymes, proteins and biopolymers in their two skin care brands, Z Skin Repair and Kilda Skindiver.

The company has developed seven unique products in their Z Skin Repair product line, and three products in their cosmetic anti aging-line, with more products in the pipeline.

The two branded product lines are differentiated towards two separate markets. The Z Skin Repair-line is specially designed for skin problems such as atopic eczema and dry skin conditions, while Kilda Skindiver are beauty products with a focus on enhanced exfoliation and reduced transepidermal water loss (TEWL).

Zona Nordic AB has the exclusive rights to use the novel enzyme zonase in their product lines in Scandinavia. Zona Nordic AB has the unique standing of in-house expertise and seven years experience in developing skin care products based on the zonase enzyme (a selective protease derived from the liquid of hatching salmon eggs).

The company has an aggressive patent strategy to develop multiple use patents based on the application of biomolecules present in the hatching liquid from salmon eggs. The active principles in the liquid are not only restricted to proteases, but also include lectins, peptides, proteins, carbohydrates, protein- and carbohydrate biopolymers and lipids. During the last year, Zona Nordic AB has tested two new formulations based on the above mentioned technology.

With several products introduced in key European markets, Zona Nordic AB expects to launch world-wide, including new products targeted for treatment of cosmetic acne and sun damage, during Spring 2010.
