Collagen accounts for 70% of the dermal layer of our skin. It is the basic building block of skin, bones, cartilage and other connective tissues in our body. Collagen assists in the regeneration of skin and works to maintain the skin’s suppleness. In the cartilage of the joints, it functions as a cushion to reduce the burden on structural system, especially the hips, joints and knees.
External and internal ageing factors can damage protein fibres, fibroblasts and vitamins needed to stimulate collagen production. These result in aging of skin.
