As we get older we tend to gravitate towards skincare products that nourish and replenish the skin – and let’s face it – help to reduce the appearance of fine lines. One of the first things we’ve been taught to look for in a product is the presence of collagen and elastin. These two very important proteins have enjoyed a well-established reputation as the guardians of youthful skin. However, what many of us haven’t been told is the collagen and elastin proteins used in most skin care products are too large to be absorbed through the skin. What we really need are products that stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin proteins within the dermis, or outer layer of skin. Before we consider the key ingredient required to achieve this regrowth effect, it’s important to note just how important collagen and elastin production is when it comes to the health and appearance of our skin. What Is Collagen? Collagen is one of the most plentiful proteins in the human body and is known as the glue that holds everything together. It connects and supports bodily tissues such as skin, bone, tendons, cartilage and muscle. There are many types of collagen proteins – some responsible for growth, others for repair
