Spring, TX—Three companies have joined the Ingredient Transparency Center’s Collagen Stewardship Alliance (CSA). CSA looks to bring transparency to collagen sources, mitigate marketplace confusion, identify and promote quality parameters, protect ingredient and product integrity, and engage on issues including sustainability.

"CSA supports transparency, attribution of science, product quality and clear messaging for this growing category," said Len Monheit, CEO, Trust Transparency Center and Management Lead for the Collagen Stewardship Alliance. "The addition of committed powerhouses such as Bioiberica, Mibelle and Stratum bolsters CSA's ability to champion best practices and expand our education and outreach as we drive continued advocacy for collagen and collagen related products."
