what is
collagen?

Collagen is the most important protein present in our body and can be found in our bones, joints, connective tissue, muscles, colonic flora, skin, hair and nails. Collagen is derived from the Greek word κολλώ (Colla=glue) and contains the meaning bind together.

Collageen works as the glue in our body. In total there are 28 types of collagen, from which type 1 is the most occurring type. 90% of all the present collagen in the body consists of type 1. Luckily, this is the most occurring type of collagen in Skin for Skin.

What is the effect

of collagen/

Collagen is essential for a lot of functions in our body. An important function of collagen is keeping the skin beautiful, flexible and smooth. Let’s take a look at our connective tissue; our connective tissue exists for 70% of dit glue like protein. This is where collagen is responsible for the firmness and elasticity of the skin, which becomes of a greater importance during the aging process and the amount of collagen decreases. The natural production of collagen in our body decreases after the age of 25, which is applicable for women as well as men. The natural aging process is a result of this. The skin ages, wrinkles occur and the skin loses it elasticity. This process is visible in the picture below.

That’s why effects from the outside have a greater influence on the skin. The skin lacks protection. The skin is the largest organ of the human body and is meant to protect our body against dehydration and hypothermia.

Fishcollagen

Collagen can be extracted from various natural sources such as fish, animals and plants, with the collagen of fish and animals most similar to that of humans. However, added antibiotics, growth hormones or food intended for the breeding of fish or the breeding of animals contain ingredients that you as humans would not want to get. For a pure collagen product it is therefore important that collagen is extracted from a natural source. Without unwanted additives, so you get a natural form of collagen. Fish collagen from wild-caught fish is the purest form of collagen. The structure of fish collagen is similar to our own collagen and is therefore the best source to take.

What makes

Skin for Skin collagen unique

We extract collagen from the residual flow of fish skins in a 100% natural way. We have developed a patented process for this. Through this method you obtain native collagen. Native means: intact collagen, the structure remains intact because we do not use heat, chemicals or acids in the development process. (Unlike hydrolyzate, here the collagen is cut up)

Native collagen powder

processed into an unique collagen supplement

After this extraction process, we capsulate the native fish collagen powder for optimum ease of use. The enzymes in the stomach, among other things, cut proteins for further transport and absorption. Collagen is the most common protein, remember 😉 Studies show that people already notice an effect with 40 mg of native collagen. Because we offer intact collagen, the RDA can be reached with only 1 capsule / pill per day! We can’t make it any easier 🙂
