LaboratoireAction Innovation Marine (A.I.M.) focuses on the pumping and processing of sea water, the essential raw material for the production of all our sea water-based products. Aside from our Group’s products, Laboratoire A.I.M. also supplies sea water to a number of companies with well-established sea water-based brands, and is thus recognized as a reliable raw material supplier in this market.
Laboratoire A.I.M. pumps and processes sea water from a licensed installation in the bay of Cancale, on the French coast of Brittany. The north of Brittany experiences some of the strongest tidal action in the world. This huge and constant movement of sea water ensures it is continuously renewed, enriched with mineral salts & trace elements and oxygenated.
The area is continuously monitored by the French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea (IFREMER) under the auspices of the French Government. Together with A.I.M.’s ISO 9001:2015 certification, this ensures sea water of the highest quality, enabling us and our customers to obtain pharmaceutical registration of our final products wherever it is necessary to do so.
Strategically, this vertical integration enhances our Group’s control over the raw material that is essential for the production of our core product line, Sinomarin®, both in terms of undisrupted supply and in terms of the exceptional quality of the raw material.
