Zymetech is an Icelandic biotechnology company specializing in research, purification and utilization of cold adopted enzymes from deep sea cod fish.
Zymetech ehf. was founded in 1999 by Dr. Jón Bragi Bjarnason and Dr. Ágústa Guðmundsdóttir, professors at the University of Iceland, who had gained deep understanding of the efficacy of enzymes from deep sea cod. Since then Zymetech has developed derma cosmetics, derma health products and medical devices that contain cod enzymes applied through the Penzyme® technology.
Zymetech extracts the enzymes from parts of the cod viscera that would otherwise be discarded.
