Collagen And Our Skin:

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.
