Atelocollagen (marine collagen)
- Also known as (marine collagen)
- The solubilization of collagen-a fibrous protein usually obtained from shark skin or cows.
- Works as a hydrating agent by holding in moisture. Also believed to have anti-aging abilities, such assoftening & diminishing the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles. Used in a variety of products such as facial lotions/creams, anti-aging serums, eye creams, face masks, sunscreens and lip balms.
- Collagen makes up 75% of the skin, and is what makes the skin strong, thick, supple, and smooth. As we age, our skin’s collagen production begins to progressively break down, and the result is more wrinkled and saggy looking skin. It is believed that stimulating collagen production can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve our overall skin texture.
