Collagen

Collagen

When it comes to skincare, collagen plays a big part; it is what holds the skin together, giving it firmness and elasticity.

Collagen provides integrity, firmness and elasticity to skin. As we get older, our body's collagen production reduces which can result in an increase of wrinkles and fine lines as well as, decreasing smoothness and suppleness of the skin.

These signs of ageing can be treated or slowed down if total body collagen levels can be increased. Maximising collagen levels will keep skin supple. This is why we use ingredients that enhance collagen production and retention as well as improve the synthesis of collagen that makes it usable in the skin.

Such ingredients can be found in Iconic Youth Serum™, Overnight Recharge™ Night Cream, Pure Radiance Mask™, Intensely Youthful Eye Cream™ Treatment Toner and Skin Brilliance Supplements™ and Youth Preservation Moisturiser™.

Peptides

Peptides

Skin is made up mostly of collagen; it is the foundation that gives your skin its support and thickness. Young people have lots of collagen and taut, smooth skin. In contrast, older people have much less collagen and thin, wrinkled skin. Collagen is protein and is made up long chains of amino acids strung together, like chains of linked building blocks. When it is broken down, short segments of 3-5 amino acids form, called peptides.

Peptides considerably stimulate the collagen production in cells, to provide structure to connective tissues, encouraging firmer skin.
