Our skin is made up of various elements including the top
layer, the epidermis, the sub layer, the dermis and a lower
layer, the fat cells. The epidermis gives the protective
function. The dermis is the support for the epidermis and is
responsible for its tone by two proteins, Collagen to
provide strength and elastin to provide elasticity. The fat
cells beneath are an important reserve of energy.
The type of Collagen which we are mostly
concerned with here is Type 1 which, along with soft keratin
and elastin is responsible for skin strength and elasticity.
It gives it form and provides firmness and strength, whilst
also supporting the skins ability to retain moisture.
Possessing great tensile strength, Collagen functions in a
manner which is very different from other types of proteins.
Collagen fibres are important in contributing to the
external structure of cells such as skin.
As people age, however, Collagen degradation occurs as the
human body loses the ability to rebuild this particular type
of Collagen, leading to wrinkles and skin dryness. Collagen
deficiency also causes age changes in the body, such as
colour changes, cellulite, dull lifeless hair and nails.
As such, it is an important substance for those looking for
ways to fight the visible effects of ageing on the skin.
Temporary treatments are available such
as Collagen enhanced creams, but they only penetrate the top
layers of the skin, and as we naturally shed skin every day,
we lose the benefit very quickly. Tablets are also
available, manufactured from substances extracted from
bovine (cows), equine (horses), and porcine (pigs)
collagens. However, these are not the correct type 1 variety
so are also of limited use.
