Collagen Cream

Collagen is an essential component of the skin. It is responsible for the skin’s strength and firmness. The body begins to slow down on the collagen production when we start to reach our 20s. At age 40 the collagen production is approximately 40% less than when you were 20 years old. A loss of collagen results in the development of wrinkles, crow’s feet and sagging skin.

As the skin is made of collagen, many people believed that if they apply a collagen cream to the skin, the cream will help slow down the aging process which causes aging skin.

Sadly, creams that contain collagen do not work because collagen is a large molecule and thus cannot penetrate the skin when applied externally. Besides, all the collagen in skin care products is derived from animals, making it difficult to mix in with your own collagen.

Natural Ingredients that Stimulate the Collagen Production

Although creams with collagen do not work, you can prevent and reduce wrinkles by using a cream that helps your body stimulate the collagen production. The anti-aging skin care ingredients that can do this job are Functional Keratin, Coenzyme Q10, and Phytessence Wakame. These natural ingredients also prevent collagen from breaking down because they are potent antioxidants that fight damaging free radicals caused by ultraviolet rays, smoking, and stress.

      – Functional Keratin: Keratin is part of the collagen trio of proteins. Keratin in most skin care products is extracted from the horns and hooves of animals. Such keratin is denaturalized because it is extracted using heat and acid. Thus, it is not in a form that is available for the skin to use.

However, Functional Keratin is the same form keratin is found in your body. It is extracted from sheep wool in New Zealand without using heat or acid. It is not denaturalized so it is still in a form that can be used by the skin. The name of this patented ingredient is Cynergy TK.

Studies have shown a 42% improvement in skin elasticity and 14% improvement in moisture retention over 18 days of using Cynergy TK.

      – Coenzyme Q10: CoQ10 is a substance that is found in your body’s cells and is very important for healthy skin. Like collagen, CoQ10 becomes depleted as you age. CoQ10 has several forms but the most powerful form is in a special “nano-emulsion” form called Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10. This form can penetrate down 7 layers deep into the skin so it is very effective at fighting harmful free radicals.

      – Phytessence Wakame: Phytessence Wakame is an extract from Japanese sea kelp. It is rich in minerals and vitamins which help maintain moisture balance of the skin. Phytessence Wakame also prevents the enzyme called hyaluronidase from breaking down hyaluronic acid in the skin. This acid helps keep skin plump and less wrinkles as it can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water.
