Ambergris Connect was formed in 2016, with a view to making improvements to the market’s accessibility and how it operates as a whole, contributing to various fields of research and supporting marine mammal conservation.
We have built a number of services including products which are now available to the market as well as our traditional raw ambergris material.
Services we provide:
We believe in a regulated marketplace, whereby the public can gain additional confidence in how they purchase their products; knowing that they are ethically procured and verified, all the way from the source to the end buyer.
We regularly have our raw materials analyzed in a laboratory setting, and various data collected during this identification process is featured within the latest research available regarding ambergris.
We are full UK member of the IFRA – As stated on their website:
