It keeps the skin elastic, while the aging of collagen wrinkles the skin. Collagen is also a major component of the eye cornea, but is composed of crystalline forms.
Oral collagen protein really will be absorbed by the skin?
The market good collagen products using biological enzymolysis technology, polymer collagen decomposition is not easy to be absorbed by human body, to make it into a small molecular weight collagen peptide, human body can directly absorb, to achieve more effective absorption and utilization.
The collagen peptide has proved, in the way of collagen peptide can be directly absorbed into the blood and throughout the body, will be deposited in the skin collagen rich tissues, and by using autologous skin, collagen synthesis.
