Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and makes up around 70% of our skin.
The not-so-good news? As we age, the collagen matrix that provides skin firmness and structure starts to break down. As a result, our skin becomes dehydrated and thinner, and fine lines, wrinkles, and deeper furrows start to appear.
Science says that collagen has some key anti-ageing benefits including increased hydration and elasticity in the skin. And collagen peptides in particular penetrate the skin on a deeper level. have proven skin beauty benefits, contributing to healthier, younger-looking skin.
Here are five incredible anti-ageing benefits of the collagen we use in our products that are backed by science:
1 Restructures collagen structures
A randomised, placebo-controlled double-blind clinical trial showed an improvement in the skin’s collagen structure and density after 12 weeks of our collagen intake (10g daily).
9% improvement in skin collagen density
31% decrease in skin collagen fragmentation
2 Increases skin hydration
A randomised, placebo-controlled double-blind clinical trial showed that after eight weeks of our collagen intake (10g daily), skin hydration level is increased.
28% increase in skin hydration
91% of the research group reported higher skin hydration level
3 Stimulates hyaluronic acid and collagen synthesis
Demonstrated in an ex vivo study, our collagen stimulates collagen production and moisture in the skin by increasing the amount of water-binding hyaluronic acid in the epidermis.
Our collagen also strongly increased the amount of hyaluronic acid present in the epidermis.
4 Increasing the strength of hair
The same clinical trial showed that our source of collagen increases the mechanical strength of hair, especially important for ageing hair, which can be thinner and weaker than younger hair.
13% increase in the mechanical strength of hair in 90 days.
These results show that hydrolysed collagen is an effective nutraceutical that lives up to its beauty claims. By supplementing with collagen regularly, you'll notice your skin looking a little brighter, denser and plumper or fuller - with a natural glow. Plus, your hair will start to look stronger and feel thicker.
Reduces wrinkles around the eyes
A randomised, placebo-controlled double-blind clinical trial showed that after 90 days of collagen intake (5g daily), participants showed significant improvements in the overall appearance of their skin.
13% decrease in periorbital wrinkles (around the eyes)
10% decrease in nasolabial wrinkles (from bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth)
A reduction of the visibility of pores in the region of the cheekbones in 57% of the collagen-supplemented participants.
