A non animal alternative to human or cow sourced collagen. It mimics the action of collagen but uses plant cells and imparts greater elasticity, more resilience and a youthful look to skin. It is extracted from the intra cellular matrix of yeast cells and is very effective as a collagen replacement.

A clear to hazy, thick viscous liquid with a slight odour. There may be a slight sediment after it has been standing for a while in the bottle.

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.

Obviously, increasing the collagen content of the skin is desirable, however, most collagen products are the by product of the slaughter house. Unless the collagen is injected into the skin, the collagen is not able to be absorbed into the skin.

This plant based alternative does penetrate into the layers of the skin and hair to make a very noticeable improvement.

Aqua; Faex Extract; Phenoxyethanol

In the 1800’s, the syringe was invented and very soon afterwards, injectable fillers were starting to be used in the “beauty” industry. The first filler was paraffin!

Later, silicone was used and the main product used now is human or bovine sourced collagen.
