Collagen itself is naturally present in the body, where it plays a huge role in the structural composition of the skin and its elasticity. It helps promote and keep the skin's plumpness, tautness and strength, which over time decrease due to ageing.
However, the benefits of taking collagen supplements are still debated. While topically applied collagen will moisturize the skin but that's about the extent of what it can do.
Applying collagen topically has never been shown to stimulate collagen synthesis or growth. This is because collagens are big molecules making them too large to penetrate the top layer of the skin.
Marine Collagen on the other hand is a fabulous addition to skin care products as it stimulates the synthesis of collagen which is critical for healthy and young looking skin.
Our Marine Collagen is extracted from the natural seaweed variety Porphyra tenera. It is enzymatically hydrolyzed to achieve an average molecular weight of approximately 1000 making it small enough to penetrate the skin. It is exclusively gained from Non-GMO ingredients and it is free of any GMO-fragments.
Our Marine Collagen is grown, harvested and processed within the strict principles of creating animal free products. It does not contain any animal products and is therefore vegan-friendly.
Marine Collagen helps improve and support the skins natural collagen production, which decreases the loss of elasticity. It also inherits properties to make the skin appear smoother, more supple and hydrated, making the skin seem younger-looking overall.
