What is collagen and why is it important for our skin?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and the main component of the supporting and connective tissue that ensures firm and firm skin. The intertwined collagen fibers made up of protein molecules not only connect the connective tissue to the top layer of skin (epidermis), but also support and protect it from external pressure. Together with elastin, they ensure that the skin is elastic.
However, as we age, our body's ability to produce collagen decreases. At the same time, external factors such as: B. UV light, smoking or stress, the formation of free radicals. Oxidative stress caused by free radicals directly affects the existing collagen structures and inhibits the production of the protein. The consequence: The skin loses its elasticity and wrinkles become significantly more visible.
What positive properties does collagen have for the skin?
Regular use of products with collagen can support skin care:
- Collagen can bind and release a high amount of moisture to the skin, making the skin appear smoother and more supple.
- It can prevent skin aging, help maintain elasticity and improve skin condition.
- Collagen alone cannot stimulate new collagen formation; this requires a “native structure” and collagen peptides. Native collagen peptides occur naturally in the skin and are able to penetrate the skin due to their much smaller size. In this way, signals are sent to the skin and communicated with the skin cells.
- Skin care products made from collagen can help your skin look better. Our products (such as the Collagen Face Mask ) also contain collagen peptides that are very similar to human collagen peptides and thus have the natural properties of native collagen. For example, the moisture depots are replenished sustainably.
What should you look for when choosing a collagen product?
In order for the externally applied collagen to be able to communicate with the skin cells, it must have a certain protein structure. Scientists call this the so-called native protein form. Since the collagens of animals and humans differ slightly, the more similar the animal collagen is to human collagen, the more compatible and effective it is for the skin.
What makes reveel collagen so special?
All of our collagen products are 97% similar to human collagen and are therefore particularly effective. Thanks to our unique technology, we can preserve the natural properties of collagen and the native triple helix structure and safely store the full effectiveness until use.
On the one hand, our products contain collagen fibers and molecules, which ensure intensive moisture supply to the skin due to their high water-binding capacity. On the other hand - and this makes our collagen products unique - they contain native collagen peptides. Due to their similarity to human collagen, they can communicate with skin cells and work even better than conventional skin care products containing collagen.
This makes your skin visibly firmer, fine lines are smoothed and the formation of wrinkles is permanently prevented - for a sustainably rejuvenated appearance of your skin!
“The human body impresses me every day. By sending the right signals, we ensure that the skin receives this message, understands it and reacts to it appropriately. The signaling molecules (collagen peptides) in our collagen products absorb into the skin and send a signal to which the body responds by producing new collagen.”
