Essential component of our skin
Collagen is the major protein in human bodies. Connective tissue in our skin consists up to 60% of collagen. The protein molecules make up long, twisted together fibrils which have enormous tensile strength and low stretchability. Besides conjugating connective tissue with the upper skin layer, the so-called epidermis, they also support connective tissue, protect it from the outer pressure and – together with Elastin - make skin elastic and supple. When we age, collagenous fibers degrade and their strength decrease. Connective tissue breaks down, wrinkles appear.
DR. KITZINGER® Skin Care: Intense care
Collagen, as a key protein in the process of skin aging, has always been raising hopes in cosmetic research. The central question is how skin care products can provide skin with the essential collagen and slow down degradation of collagenous fibers.
DR. KITZINGER® Skin Care focuses on the active formulation of soluble collagen. The collagen molecules improve the skin’s ability to bind moisture, smooth out fine lines and make skin more even. However, due to their size, collagen molecules are only able to penetrate into upper skin layer, while collagen peptides reach much deeper into the skin and stimulate its self-regeneration. DR. KITZINGER® Skin Care’s typical combination of collagen fibrils, collagen molecules and collagen peptides results in visibly even skin and intense moisturization.
Good to know
Do you know that
- two applications of SPRAYPLUS (= 6 pump spays) contain almost as much collagen as EYEMASK?
Therefore SPRAYPLUS is as nurturing as a moisturizing mask just in a spray form.
- collagen is also used in burn surgery?
- collagen is a component in many types of mascara?
- skin-identical collagen is extremely well-tolerated?
