What is collagen?

Collagen is a protein of the connective tissue, which makes up about 30% of the body's protein. Collagen is the main biopolymer for living beings. This fibrous protein of the connective tissue comprises 70% of the skin and is necessary element of the human skeleton. It's unique physical and chemical features ensure the transfer of forces from sinews and maintain the appropriate firmness and flexibility of the skin. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, forming strong sheets and cables that support the structure of the skin, internal organs, cartilage and bones, as well as all the connective tissue in between. At the molar mass of 102,000 grams per mole, collagen is an extremely large protein, consisting of thousands of atoms. Its three dimensional structure consists of thickly woven fibrils that wrap around into a triple helix conformation. This structural support is what makes skin thick plump, and elastic.

Collagen and aging process.

What is happening that makes your skin look older? It loses its elasticity, it becomes thin; it forms wrinkles; it loses its smooth finish. What explains this? Skin is made up of proteins that support its cellular structure. At the deepest molecular level the proteins that connect skin cells diminish in quantity and become thin. After the age of 25, the biological processes that make these proteins can no longer produce them in abundance as they once did and the proteins are not as thick and long as they once were. As the effects of aging are due to improper protein production, this preparation is the first to fight directly with the cause of aging, not just the effects. Since stifling protein breakdown is the only way to prevent aging, reinforcing protein configurations is the most effective means to that end.

Multifactorial applications include the following:

  • Preventing further wrinkles from forming.
  • Supplementing diminished collagen levels.
  • Stimulating collagen producing cells to its renewed activity.

Although many products claim to contain collagen as an ingredient, the quality and purity of it are tentative (most products contain 1.5%). What makes Salcoll Collagen special is the patented purification process that yields a 98% pure collagen product that remains biologically active. It remains alive so that it can biologically mend with the skin's incomplete proteins in order to regain the structural backing that it once had.

Why Salcoll Collagen?

Often times, products that promise anti-aging benefits are actually making us look older in the long term. They are simply a way of delaying the inevitable. As we get older, many of our skin's properties change. The skin becomes thinner, less elastic, and less firm. Such characteristics are more commonly known as the signs of aging. As the signs of aging are attributed to many causes, they have resulted in myriad of anti-aging products, each devoted to fighting a single believed cause or effect. Many products wrestle with oxidation reactions, which are known to damage cells, making them replicate imprecisely. Antioxidants ( vitamins ) in this case, shield cells from the damaging effects of exposure, known as free radical damage. Other products strip the outer layer of the skin to expose a " fresh " new layer, which appears smoother and healthier but provides no lasting benefit. Still, most products work by way of a chemical reaction that causes the skin to contract and tighten up, which in turn diminishes the visibility of existing wrinkles, but offers a less than feasible solution for many reasons. Such artificially induced chemical reactions can cause more harm than good. As the skin is artificially contracted, it actually becomes looser once the effects wear off or once the individual discontinues treatment all together. And if they continue treatment, they will gradually have to increase the dosage, or buy a more expensive product to achieve the same effect. It works like a drug. The reason Salcoll Collagen poses no such risk is that it does not "trick" skin cells into thinking that they no longer have to work for themselves. Artificially tightening the skin basically tells your reconstructive cells that their job is done, and they can stop working. And that's exactly what happens. Collagen however, doesn't just heighten diminished collagen levels; it works alongside the biological processes that link collagen proteins together, making your own processes work better. Biochemically active.
