The secret to beautiful skin

Beautiful skin on the outside requires a healthy foundation on the inside. Increased consumer understanding of this, coupled with an aging population and a preference for less invasive beauty treatments, is currently driving the global nutricosmetics or ‘beauty from within’ market, which is tipped to reach $4.24 billion by 2017.1

For many years, Asian consumers, particularly the Japanese, have recognized the benefits of fish collagen peptides, plus their anti-aging attributes when consumed daily as ingestible, nutricosmetic products. With growing global awareness of their clinically proven credentials, collagen peptides are now gaining worldwide recognition and popularity.

This vibrant industry presents nutraceutical and dietary supplement manufacturers with an exciting innovation opportunity. But, effective bioactive ingredients that deliver fundamental skin health benefits are critical to develop cutting edge solutions that resonate with your target market.

Collagen peptides Building blocks to promote younger-looking skin

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and constitutes 70% of dry mass skin content. A key component of the skin’s structure, collagen fibers provide the infrastructure for elastin, which maintains skin elasticity, and for hyaluronic acid to trap moisture.

As we age, the number and activity of skin cells (fibroblasts) that produce collagen decreases. As fibroblasts become less active, the collagen matrix that provides skin firmness and structure starts to break down. Skin then becomes dehydrated and thinner, plus fine lines, wrinkles and deep furrows start to appear.

Smooth, firm and younger-looking skin requires optimum levels of well-organized collagen fibers to ensure skin retains its elasticity, firmness and moisture-binding capacity.

Clinical studies have shown that Collagen peptides can support:

Skin collagen density and structure

Skin hydration

Smoother, more supple skin

Counteracting visible signs of aging

With age, the collagen matrix weakens and wrinkles start to form
