It started in 2013 when co-founders Amber Boutiette and Patrick Breeding met on the first day of their first year as biomedical engineering undergraduate students at the University of Maine. Nearly eight years later the pair relocated to Portland, launched Marin Skincare--a specialty skincare product made with lobster glycoprotein--and are now teaming with an established Maine brand, Luke's Lobster, to scale their supply chain and meet strong demand for their first product.
