What is Collagen and Why is it Vital in Skincare?


What is collagen?

Collagen is a main structural protein naturally produced in the body that is found in the body’s connective tissues and makes up between 25% to 35% of the body’s protein content. Collagen is made up of amino acids and serves as a building block for healthy hair, skin, nails, muscles, tendons, and even blood vessels.

As we get older, the human body produces less collagen naturally and any amount of existing collagen is damaged by the sun, pollution, and other environmental aggressors. Some studies suggest that the lack of collagen that comes with age may account for limited muscle tone, loosening of the skin, and even painful joints.

Since collagen assists in the renewal of cells and can help minimize the development of wrinkles, the addition of collagen can reduce signs of aging, specifically deep wrinkles, and fine lines. While a diet rich in protein provides the essential amino acids that help build collagen, the skincare industry has taught out another way to deliver collagen.

What is the effect of collagen in skincare?

Essentially, collagen is an excellent moisturizer for the skin. It is able to help improve skin elasticity, reduce visible wrinkles, and increase blood flow to the skin. For these reasons, it has become an increasingly popular ingredient in skincare.

In skincare, collagen’s main benefit is the added hydration it provides skin where applied. Research provided by the Cleveland Clinic suggests that skin creams with synthetic collagen add a film-like layer to your skin to reduce water loss and act as a barrier from environmental elements.
