How We're Partnering With Oceana To Protect The Ocean, And How You Can Help

Biossance x Oceana

 

At Biossance, our commitment to the ocean runs deep—from shark-saving ingredient innovation to sustainable, ocean-friendly packaging. June 8th is World Oceans Day, but we’re celebrating all month long. Every year, we team up with Oceana to raise awareness about ocean conservation and help restore our seas.

Roughly 50% of marine life populations have disappeared since 1970, but it’s not too late to reverse the damage. As the world’s largest international advocacy group focused solely on ocean conservation, Oceana is working to protect sensitive habitats and help restore our oceans’ biodiversity and abundance.

If we want these efforts to be successful, we can’t leave it all up to the environmentalists. Every one of us has a role to play in solving this problem. That’s why we’re releasing two limited edition gift sets that give back 5% of every purchase to Oceana, and to celebrate World Oceans Day on June 8th - we're donating 100% of all sitewide sales to Oceana.


How Your Purchase Helps Make A Difference

Our mission of science-driven, sustainable beauty beautifully compliments Oceana’s policy-driven approach. When we started working together in 2020, our partnership was a natural match. With our community’s help (that means you!) we’ve been able to donate more than $300,000 to Oceana so far and adopted more than 5,000 sharks. Shark adoption is a symbolic gesture that helps support bans on shark finning, species-specific management plans, and reduces deaths from bycatch.

This support has helped Oceana win major victories for our oceans. In 2021 alone, they protected over 25,000 square miles of deep sea corals in New England from destructive fishing, removed deadly drift gillnets from the Pacific Ocean in California, and helped pass a historic law in Chile eliminating single-use plastics.

With roundup donations, shark adoptions, and limited edition product collaborations, we’ll continue supporting Oceana as they work to protect and restore our oceans.

 

Sugarcane Derived Squalane Oil, the vegan alternative to squalene

 

3 Reasons To Go Jumbo With Squalane

We created our signature ingredient, squalane, as a sustainable, vegan alternative to squalene, a emollient found in shark livers. By creating and using squalane derived from renewable sugarcane, we’ve helped to prevent more than 2 million sharks from being killed each year. 

To celebrate our alignment on this important issue, we’ve partnered with Oceana to release Limited Edition Oceana 100% Jumbo Squalane. Our signature ingredient comes from sustainably harvested sugarcane and is bioidentical to the natural moisture found in human skin, making it your body’s best moisturizer, effective for all skin types.

This powerful,  weightless hydrator for face, body, and hair comes in an extra-large bottle made with 100% post-consumer recycled plastic and a Forest Stewardship Council  (FSC) certified carton. The limited edition ocean design is inspired by our partnership and passion for ocean conservation. 

And the best part: 5% of the proceeds from every bottle go straight to Oceana to help win more victories for our oceans.

As a lifestyle writer and journalist, I’m excited to bring my passion for storytelling to Biossance as an Engagement Content Writer. Two things you should know about me: I have a deep love of the ocean (especially sharks) and I’m obsessed with clean beauty. My bathroom cabinet is literally overflowing with my many-layered sustainable skincare routine. This combo is what led me to buy my first bottle of Vitamin C Rose Oil. I was so impressed by the way it improved my skin that I wanted to shout this brand from the rooftops. Three years later, and here I am doing just that. I’m excited to be on this journey of clean beauty innovation with Biossance, and to share it with you here on the blog.
