Plant-Based Collagen & It's Benefits For Skin

Plant-Based Collagen & It's Benefits For Skin

No one likes getting older. As the years go by, our skin loses elasticity, becomes saggy, and starts to wrinkle. We all wish we could turn back the clock, but unfortunately, that's not possible. Or is it?

While we can't turn back time, there are things we can do to help our skin look younger, healthier, and more radiant. One of those things is to use a plant-based collagen cream. In this article, we'll introduce our new plant-based collagen cream and explain how it can make all the difference for your skin.

But First - What Is Collagen?

That's a pretty reasonable question for something you're rubbing into your skin, right?

Collagen is a natural protein that's produced by the body with a primary role of providing structure and function to cells. It's mainly used to build and maintain skin, cartilage, bones, and connective tissue, and makes up about 30% of your body's internal protein balance.

Collagen's structure is made up of long chains of amino acids, which give it its strength. However, as we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen, which can cause a decrease in skin elasticity, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

But don't worry - that's where supplementary measures come in to help. By using products with collagen extract, you can help increase your body's collagen levels, which can improve the health and appearance of your skin.

Our Plant-Based Collagen Cream

Your skin plays an important role in protecting your body from the elements, so it's important to take care of it. And one of the best ways to do that is by using a collagen cream.

Our plant-based collagen cream is packed with natural ingredients that are designed to help improve the health and appearance of your skin. We've formulated it to be as natural yet effective as possible, and it's perfect for all skin types.

What Is Plant Based Collagen?

Wait - didn't we say earlier that collagen is a protein produced by the body?

Yes, that's correct. But what you may not know is that there are different types of collagen, and not all of them are created by the human body.

There are actually 28 different types of collagen, but 80-90% of the collagen in our bodies is types I, II, and III. Type I collagen is found in skin, tendons, organs, and bone marrow. Type II collagen is found in cartilage, and type III collagen is found in reticular fibers (which help support organs). All three are important for different reasons, but they all have one thing in common: they provide structure and support to the body.

So where does plant based collagen come in?

Plant based collagen is a type of collagen that is derived from plants, rather than animals. It's different from type I, II and III collagen in terms of its structure and function, but it can still be beneficial for the skin.

The Benefits Of Plant-Based Collagen

There are many benefits to using plant-based collagen, including:

Cruelty Free

Unlike animal-based collagen, plant-based collagen does not require the slaughter of animals. This makes it a more ethical and cruelty-free option. It's also much more sustainable, as it does not put strain on the environment in the same way that animal agriculture does.

Reduced Appearance Of Wrinkles

One of the most common signs of aging is the appearance of wrinkles, and plant-based collagen can help to reduce their appearance. By increasing the levels of collagen in your skin, you can help to fill in wrinkles and give your skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Improved Skin Elasticity

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and becomes saggy. This is because the collagen fibers that provide structure and support to the skin break down over time. By using plant-based collagen, you can help to replace these lost fibers and improve the elasticity of your skin.

Enhanced Hydration

Plant-based collagen can also help to improve hydration, as it helps to attract and retain moisture in the skin. This is important, as hydrated skin is less likely to develop wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Softer, Smoother Skin

In addition to reducing the appearance of wrinkles, plant-based collagen can also help to make your skin softer and smoother. This is because it helps to fill in rough, dry patches, improve the overall texture of your skin, and as we already mentioned, keep it hydrated.

How Our Plant-Based Collagen Cream Is Made

Our plant-based collagen cream is created with PH4 natural lifting ferment, a naturally occurring yeast originally found in the Centennial trees of Yosemite National Park. We blend it with mineral salts and special nutrients, process it through a high-pressure system and then filter it to create a powerful, plant-based active ferment filtrate that helps to improve the appearance of your skin.

What Makes It So Effective?

The answer lies in the fermentation process.

When the PH4 natural lifting ferment is combined with the other ingredients, it undergoes a fermentation process. This helps to break down the collagen into smaller pieces, making it easier for your skin to absorb. Liposomal technology is then used to encase the collagen in microscopic molecules, which help to further improve absorption and ensure that the collagen reaches the deepest layers of your skin.
