What is COLLAGEN used for?

Collagen represents one of the main constituents of cosmetic formulations because of its moisturizing, regenerating, and film-forming properties. Its excellent ability to bind water helps to maintain proper water content in the skin during the day. The skin is moisturized and softened. Aside from being a natural humectant, collagen’s film-forming properties reduce transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Peptide occlusion prevents skin and hair damage caused by mechanical impairments. Moreover, occlusion makes skin more radiant, illuminated, and smooth.
