Why is collagen essential to the skin?
Collagen is the most common structural protein found in the human body. There are several types of collagens, each with a specific function and essential to maintaining skin health and integrity. To preserve the skin’s structure, elasticity and firmness, the process of collagen production and regeneration must be recurrent and continuous.
Over time, the biological mechanisms involved in the life cycle of collagen slow down and become less efficient. This degradation is at the heart of skin aging. It manifests itself in the appearance of visible signs of aging and contributes to skin laxity. To improve and maintain skin health, it is essential to support the life cycle of collagen.
