The name of an anti-wrin­kle in­gre­di­ent made from the bod­ily fluid of sea stars found around Prince Ed­ward Is­land. Mus­sel fish­er­men there are col­lect­ing coelomic fluid from the crea­tures, which at­tack and eat the shell­fish, be­fore returning them to the ocean un­harmed. The fluid, which is be­lieved to help sea stars re­gen­er­ate lost and dam­aged limbs, is then shipped to in­noVac­tiv, a Que­bec com­pany that makes in­gre­di­ents for cos­met­ics and claims to have un­locked “the re­gen­er­a­tive po­ten­tial of the mighty starfish.”
