As soon as Jocelyn Berubé, our VP Science & Regulatory Affairs, heard about Myoceram® and the compelling scientific studies supporting its claims, he was convinced of Myoceram®’s potential to achieve the high scientific and quality standards required for Health Canada registration.

The certification applied to a daily intake of 30mg of rice derived Myoceram® (Myoceram®-RPS) to “help support healthy skin barrier function” and “help lessen the loss of water through the skin.”
This year, Myoceram® was amongst the finalists as the Beauty from Within category appeared for the first time at the NutraIngredients-USA Awards.
