The Benefits of Collagen for Skin Care

The natural collagen is the principal structural skin protein. Bundles of collagen molecules pack together throughout the dermis, accounting for three-fourths of the dry weight of skin. Collagen is also responsible for the skin’s strength. Collagen is produced by cells called fibroblasts, which are found scattered throughout the dermis.

Skin has a considerable stock of such fibers, still with the lapse of time. Collagen production diminishes with age which inevitably contributes to the development of wrinkles and a reduction in the skin’s elasticity.

Collagen creams have been available for skin care. The active collagen contained in skin care formulations helps to moisturize skin and may prevent loss of moisture. Research on collagen indicates the ability for this active anti-aging ingredient, in specific formulations, to increase skin hydration in addition to firming and plumping properties.

Many collagen creams often claimed as a solution for rebuilding the collagen fibers underneath your skin layers. Fact, the active “collagen” in skin care products that do not have the ability to rebuild or replace lost collagen. It acts as a hint to increase the natural process of generation of the collagen by the skin itseft.
