Under the microscope: Collagen

If you are clued up on your skincare, then you will have heard of ‘Collagen’.

If when you hear the word Collagen; plump, smooth and firm looking skin comes to mind, you’d be absolutely correct – and, the secret to that vibrant complexion lies within our own bodies.

Collagen is a protein we produce naturally, it makes up a large part of the dermis and its main purpose – as one of the body’s key structural resources – is to enable the stretching of the skin, whilst maintaining its strength and elasticity.

As well as age, UV exposure and other environmental factors also decease our Collagen levels so using products with Collagen can help rebuild elasticity lost.

Benefits of Collagen onto the skin:

  • A hero for the treatment of wrinkles, fine lines and scars
  • Boosts skin elasticity
  • Hydrates and protects
  • Smooths and plumps
