What is Collagen, and Why is there a rise in Collagen products?
It is no doubt that Collagen has found its way into the world of skincare, so what’s the fuss? Well, collagen is protein, and in actual fact is the most abundant structure of protein making up the framework of our cells and tissues. Collagen is found in connective tissue, skin, tendons, bones, and cartilage.
Collagen plays a vital role in tissue repair, immune response, cellular communication, and cellular migration. Collagen is a protein naturally found in our body and taken in through dietary choices such as chicken skin and fish skin, however, sometimes we don’t get enough collagen through our diet, and as such taking them orally as supplements is the best way to treat the signs of aging including wrinkles, loss of skin hydration and joint pain.
