Your collagen levels are dropping

Collagen is one of the most important proteins in the human body. It accounts for 30% of total protein, representing 80% of dry mass of skin. Primarily located in connective tissue, it is responsible for providing structure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your skin is getting older

During the ageing process, the skin suffers a loss of moisture and becomes increasingly dry. From the age of around 25, the performance of fibroblasts, and thus collagen synthesis, reduces. This intensifies for women after menopause.

 

Internal factors

The visible signs of ageing skin is a direct result in the decrease of collagen in the dermis – the sub-region of the skin where few topical products have effective action.

 

Collagen depletion

Studies show that we lose 1.5% of our body’s store of collagen every year after the age of 25.
