COLLAGEN - the molecule that’s on everyone’s lips, in everyone’s smoothies and all over the skin care space. Fast becoming a firm-favourite, this little molecule is the most abundant protein in the human body and plays an integral role in the maintenance of your skin’s elasticity and structure.
As we age, our collagen levels produced naturally by our body slowly starts to decrease, and with the loss of collagen comes the decline in firmness and plumpness of our skin. Increasing your collagen intake through the correct foods and supplements, and combining that with topical collagen through the correct skin care, is the ultimate approach.
As traditional collagen is typically derived from animal products (bovine, marine, porcine), Algenist has pioneered an alternative from natural sources. Through biotechnology, Algenist has created a completely vegan collagen molecule, derived entirely from plants. The innovative technology binds corn, soy and wheat protein fibres together, with the result being vegan amino acids that structurally mimic and provide a function similar to animal-derived collagen used in cosmetic products.
Not only have they trademarked their exclusive Active Vegan Collagen™, they have also developed and patented Alguronic Acid®, their exclusive star ingredient, naturally sourced and sustainably produced and used in every single ALGENIST formula to boost the performance and benefits.
The dream duo of Active Vegan Collagen™ and Alguronic Acid® is a powerhouse formulation. Keep reading to discover and shop the latest innovations.
