What is Ocean Cleaning?
South Australian Shark Cartilage produces a premium grade shark cartilage powder by using a naturally occurring concentration of sea lice to remove residual flesh prior to processing. This unusual and unique all-natural cleaning process is called Ocean Cleaning.
Ocean Cleaning is performed off the coastal areas of Port Lincoln. During this stage the sea lice, many of which are microscopic, remove remaining flesh resulting in a clean, polished product.

The sea lice provide an all-natural alternative to chemical cleaning and no shark flesh is transformed into powder. South Australian Shark Cartilage uses only completely clean shark cartilage. South Australian Shark Cartilage is ground to a superfine powder to assist a rapid absorption level, for human consumption.
