Honestly, skincare can sometimes be the wild wild west. We’ve got people on TikTok bottling semen for serums, seven-step routines for your butt, boobs and balls, and ingredients you can barely pronounce without googling it first. So it is no surprise that this week’s trending ingredient is sea cucumber collagen.

Yep, we’re talking about collagen from those cute little slug-like critters chillin’ on the ocean floor. Queensland-based skincare brand Bescher Beauty believes it’s the next big ingredient in skincare, so much so that it’s made sea cucumber collagen the hero ingredient in its serums and creams. But why sea cucumber, we hear you ask? Because it’s a unique source of marine collagen that repairs skin collagen and elastin protein fibres to repair and protect the skin barrier.

According to the brand, the natural source of collagen also helps reduce inflammation and irritation caused by skin conditions like acne, eczema and rosacea. Consistent use can improve skin tone and even out texture by reducing the appearance of acne scars, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, it’s fragrance-free and doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals, making it suitable for all skin types.

Let’s take a closer look at the products, shall we?
