Pseudo collagen and our connective tissue.
Pseudo collagen is a true moisturising glycoprotein taken from living
cells. It is extracted from traditional brewers yeast by a controlled
process which preserves its high molecular weight and native structure
and enables it to confer desirable moisture-binding and film-forming properties
to the skin. In this single product we offer you a combination of the
best from the dermal protein and sugar worlds in a soluble, easily handled
form that is an ideal substitute for animal based collagen.
Aromantic is committed to use proteins which are derived from vegetables
and other non-animal sources. Our producers have looked to yeast for a
source of pseudo collagen material that will provide moisturisation for
both skin and hair.
Pseudo collagen has been extracted from the intra-cellular matrix from
yeast cells in a water-soluble 'Pseudo collagenous' form suitable for
use in cosmetics. Pseudo collagen is the name that has been given to this
cellular extract consisting of a moisturising complex of sugars and proteins.
This complex is responsible for providing turgor and shape inside the
cell in a similar way to sugar/ protein complexes in the dermis. It has
been demonstrated that Pseudo collagen has excellent moisture binding
properties, making it especially suited as a soluble collagen replacement.
"I just wanted to write in gratitude and
appreciation for your excellent advice on sensitive treatment
with oils. I have found the results to be excellent and even though
I was considering plastic surgery, I now feel that it will be
unnecessary - so a large thank you!"
In order to appreciate the potential importance of Pseudo collagen to
cosmetic formulators, an understanding of the role of soluble collagen
is required. Soluble collagen provides an important function in the skin
matrix, not only for its structural properties, but also for its ability
to help hold moisture in the dermis. Collagen fibrils provide the rigid
dermal framework around which the moisture binding proteoglycan structure
is woven. Elastin fibrils supply the whole structure due to their elasticity.
The appearance of the skin is directly proportional to its ability to
bind water. Upon ageing, the collagen and elastin content in connective
tissue reduces with an accompanying decrease in ability to retain moisture.
The skin becomes thinner, takes on an aged appearance and often develops
wrinkles. Pseudo Collagen, like soluble collagen, affords excellent moisturising
properties giving skin a more supple, healthy appearance.
