What is Collagen + Elastin Skincare All About?

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


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 absorb into the skin for any visible result.

If you’ve used a 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—visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet, supporting natural resilience, increasing moisture and visibly plumping skin.

now there’s a new kind of collagen + elastin skincare

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 visibly sag, natural 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 retain more moisture and help support the natural skin barrier for healthy looking skin.

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.

meet our Collagen + Elastin Collection!

So why did we decide our 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 visible results possible. How? As with every product we create, we blended our new forms of collagen and elastin with complementary proven ingredients your skin understands and responds to. 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 have been shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and visible redness, visibly improve skin texture and plump skin.

Our state-of-the-art formulations blend two types of biointelligent vegan collagen, vegan elastin 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 collagen + elastin formulas have shown incredible results. We asked 21 participants between the ages of 43-60 to test both 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 the appearance of crow’s feet and eye wrinkles
  • Up to a 49% improvement in visible texture
  • Up to a 24% reduction in visible redness
  • Up to a 27% decrease in the appearance of spots
