Collagen is the main protein in skin connective tissue, that part of the skin that lies beneath the epidermis. The long fibers of collagen are interwoven to form a network, which in young skin is capable of imbibing water and giving turgidity. The elasticity of this support network is guaranteed by another type of protein fibers, with a spiralized spring structure: they are the ELASTIN fibers. It has been proven that skin aging is related to the formation of further ramifications in the COLLAGEN to the decrease of the ELASTIN content, resulting from the action of bad weather (sun, wind, thermal variations) and in particular of a part of UV rays. The COLLAGEN thus modified becomes insoluble, that is, unable to hydrate and reconstruct the loose fibers. The skin, losing in this way turgidity and elasticity, manifests the well-known roughness. It is therefore necessary to return to the skin the SOLUBLE COLLAGEN and ELASTIN lost and protect it from further damaging action of UV rays. COMPOSITION: natural fatty alcohols, superior fatty acids and their esters, distilled hydrogenated lanolin, FU glycols and glycerine, vegetable and mineral oil derivatives, allantoin, vitamin F, pH balancing agents, hypoallergenic preservatives, essential oils, deionized, filtered and microfiltered water of ultrapure category, SOLUBLE COLLAGEN and ELASTIN, sunscreen protection 7. Our collagen supply channel is part of the dietary supplement supply chain. Unfortunately, there are those who create confusion by calling "vegetable collagen" some kind of vegetable protein that can not have the functions of natural replacement of real collagen. Vegetable collagen does not exist. Vegetables lack some of the 20 amino acids that are in our proteins and are irreplaceable. Without these amino acids, the related proteins cannot be biosynthesized by our metabolism. It would be as if we had tried to write these sentences without the letters "E" and "P". Collagen, in addition to the 20 basic essentials, has other particular amino acids (those that serve to enhance its elastic structure and its ability to hydrate the skin): all the more reason it requires complete proteins of its amino acids.
