What is Micro-Collagen + Elastin Skincare All About?

When it comes to collagen + elastin skincare and its benefits, the industry has been in a quandary.

Why?

Because, even though there are a number of topical collagen + elastin skincare products available, the molecular weight of these ingredients has traditionally been too large to actually penetrate the skin for any meaningful result.

If you’ve used collagen-based cream or perfecting serum in the past to stave off those “oh so dreaded” signs of aging, you’ve certainly treated yourself to softer and more moisturized skin, but not much else. That’s because, until now, topical collagen hasn’t been able to get where it needs to go so it can do what it’s destined for—dramatically and visibly reducing crow’s feet and wrinkles, improving resilience, elasticity and texture and adding volume to sagging skin.

Now There’s a New Kind of Collagen + Elastin Skincare — Micro-Collagen + Elastin™

Yes, collagen has been available in skincare products for quite some time, but we weren’t willing to bring any collagen products to market until the collagen code was cracked. But before we jump into that, let’s start with the basics.

It’s Time for Collagen-101

Collagen is the primary protein that’s responsible for the structural support of your skin. Think of it as the scaffolding that literally holds your skin together and gives it that firm, smooth, glassy look you’re born with.

As you age, collagen levels naturally begin to decrease, and your ability to create more greatly diminishes. The decline can even start as early as our mid-20s. The result? Fine lines and wrinkles begin to emerge, your skin begins to sag, cellular turnover decreases and you lose that bounce and glow that we all love and that makes us look younger.

Aside from the natural aging process, there are lots of reasons your skin loses collagen, including both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Three primary culprits are:

  • Sun/UV exposure and airborne pollutants: These factors lead to a breakdown of existing collagen and cause less collagen to be produced.
  • Diet: We’ve all heard the old adage “you are what you eat,” and in the case of optimal collagen production in the skin, it really is true. It’s been shown that consuming things that cause inflammation (think: sugar, processed foods and, unfortunately, that lovely glass of wine we all look forward to in the evening) can slow the collagen production train to a crawl.
  • Smoking: It’s been shown that smoking can lead to about a 20% decrease in collagen production, and the free radicals generated by smoking greatly accelerate collagen degradation.

The good news is there have been major scientific breakthroughs in age-delaying techniques and products. Although the jury’s still out on the benefits of collagen supplements, it’s a fact that these supplements account for a booming $9+ billion in the industry. A whole host of A-list celebrities (think Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Garner, Kourtney Kardashian and Victoria Beckham, just to name a few) are touting their benefits.

Not only that, but there are also a variety of treatments you can get through your skincare professional that, combined with a good at-home regimen, can help your skin turn on the ability to produce new collagen and slow down collagen depletion.

However, when making decisions about collagen products, it’s important to know that all collagen is not created equal. In skincare, it’s the molecular weight and bioavailability of collagen that really matters, and the truth is: Only biointelligent micro-collagen has the ability to penetrate into the skin for the best results.

Meet our Just Launched Micro-Collagen + Elastin Collection!

So why did we decide these new forms of collagen would really work? We vet hundreds of ingredients every year and most don’t pass our strict standards. Still, we felt there was a need for this in the marketplace and decided to give it a go. We were blown away by the results and knew now was the time to launch a new category of collagen + elastin skincare.

Enter Collagen + Elastin Recovery Mask and Collagen + Elastin Recovery Serum. Our goal: to generate the most skin changing results possible. How? As with every product we create, we blended this new micro-collagen ingredient technology with complementary proven ingredients your skin understands. We believe there’s strength in numbers when it comes to skin transformative ingredients and there are too many of those to list here – take a look!

Why should your skin rejoice?

Our Collagen + Elastin Recovery Mask and Serum are both clinically proven to promote collagen Type I and elastin production. These formulas minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve texture, decrease redness, brighten dark spots and add firmness and volume to the skin.

Our state-of-the-art formulations blend two types of bioidentical vegan micro-collagen, vegan tropoelastin and eight molecular weights of hyaluronic acid with a colloidal gold delivery system bonded to vitamin C and peptides to ensure all the ingredients are utilized and maximized by the skin.

You read that right, these formulas are fully vegan. Traditionally, commercially available collagen has been bovine in nature or derived from another animal source. That’s kept a lot of people from enjoying the benefits because of their vegan or vegetarian restrictions. Until now.

Our New Formulas Blew Us Away with Their Results!

In consumer testing, our new micro-collagen formulas have performed like no other collagen products on the market. We asked 21 participants between the ages of 43-60 to test both micro-collagen products for four weeks, using the mask up to four times per week and the serum twice daily. Here’s what we found:

● Up to a 72% decrease in crow’s feet and eye wrinkles
● Up to a 49% improvement in texture
● Up to a 24% reduction in redness
● Up to a 27% decrease in spots

In another study, we found that the Collagen + Elastin Recovery Mask significantly improved the look of fine lines after just 15 minutes of wear time.

Here's Why You'll Love Them

Collagen + Elastin Recovery Mask

 
  • Shown to reduce crow’s feet and wrinkles by up to 66%*
  • Improves skin resilience and elasticity
  • Improves skin texture by up to 30%*

 

Visible results with just one use

*One time use VISIA study with 13 panelists. Collagen + Elastin Recovery Mask was applied for 15 minutes then removed by clinician.

  • Flash fills deep wrinkles and reduces crow’s feet
  • Instantly contours and firms collagen depleted skin on face, neck and chest

 

Instant and sustained results over time

One is great. Both are better.

The true beauty of these products is how they work together. They provide visible results with one use of the mask and sustained results when you use the serum twice per day. These ingredient formulations also work synergistically to promote Type 1 collagen and fibronectin production, meaning you’ll get the most bang for your buck if you pair them together.
