Why choose Hydrolysed Collagen?
As a long chain of amino acids, collagen acts as the key building blocks that makes up the skin. hydrolysed collagen, or collagen peptides, are essentially broken down versions of these long chains and as a result of this, they can have different properties. Whilst long chain collagen is great for helping the maintenance of healthy skin, the hydrolysed version is arguably said to be even better as they are smaller and therefore more bioavailable. This means they can be absorbed more easily by the body so skincare with this key ingredient can be truly ideal for the skin. What’s more, when combined with skin-loving vitamins and minerals, it can be made even better and create a real powerhouse of a product.

VERISOL® Clinical Studies
Specially created and then optimised for beauty applications, VERISOL® is natural Bioactive Collagen Peptide that is a careful combination of both type I and III collagen hydrolysate from a marine source. As a result of a number of scientific studies conducted on the ingredient, it has shown it’s range of great benefits for the skin. These studies have even been approved by the FSE (Food Supplement Europe) and then recognised by EFSA (European Food Standards Agency), which makes VERISOL® the only type of this collagen available with an approved study for beauty behind it.
The first clinical study was of 69 women aged between 35-55 that took 2,500mg of VERISOL® over a 4 week course. After this time, they reported a significant increase in skin elasticity, which showed to be up to 15% compared to the placebo. They also detailed a significant reduction of wrinkles and lines as well as improved moisture levels. A different study of over 100 women aged around 55 reported that with an oral administration of VERISOL®, they saw a significant reduction in wrinkles after just 4 weeks and a significantly higher skin procollagen concentration. What’s more, Dr Stefan Oesser, the World's leading expert in collagen hydrolysate, detailed that the same intake had a 15% increase in skin elasticity and a 60% increase in skin collagen levels after 4 weeks which was then consistent after 8 weeks.
A major member of the hydro-soluble Vitamin B family, Pyridoxine is renowned for its many benefits for the body. This is because it contributes to the reduction tiredness and fatigue so you can get your day off right as well as contributes to the normal function of the immune system.
Just like B6, Biotin is also an important member of the B vitamin family and similarly has some great avantages for the body and in particular the skin. Vitamin B7 contributes to the maintenance of normal skin as is also significant for energy and vitality.
Incredibly important for the health and wellbeing of the body and especially the skin, Vitamin C is arguably one of the most popular of all the vitamins. This is for good reason, as it can contribute to normal collagen formation for the normal function of the skin and cartilage.
A key ingredient in any great natural skincare product, Vitamin E is known for its abilities to be hydrating and nourishing for the skin. What’s more, it can protect the cells from oxidative stress, making it useful for helping to protect the skin from the appearance of premature ageing.
Important for the overall health of the body, Zinc if one of the essential trace elements. This amazing mineral can play a big part in the body's functioning, an in particular the health and maintenance of the skin and hair as it contributes to protein synthesis.
When many hear Copper, they only think of the external applications and not the benefits it can have for the body. Copper contributes to the normal function of the immune system and to the maintenance of connective tissues, meaning it can be ideal for the skin, nails and hair.
