What is skinade™?
skinade™ is a multi-award winning, natural peach and mangosteen flavoured anti-ageing collagen drink containing a patent pending formulation of active ingredients that aims to boost your body’s natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. skinade aims to improve the way your skin looks and feels in as little as 30 days.
skinade™ has been developed by leading UK scientists and is designed to provide a perfect ratio of liquid to active ingredients to create one of the most advanced, effective and bio-available anti-ageing skincare products on the market today. skinade is an alternative approach to your skincare regime – a drink promotes better looking skin from the inside out.
What does skinade™ do?
skinade™ delivers essential micronutrients in liquid form and helps to re-build the collagen matrix in your skin. Skinade combats the signs of ageing by reducing oxidative stress, preventing cross linking of collagen fibres, increasing moisture and hydration, increasing natural collagen production and increasing natural hyaluronic acid production within the dermal layer of the skin. As a result skinade restores your skin’s youthful appearance, improves tone, texture, hydration, smooths furrow lines and improves skin suppleness.
Why do i need to improve the collagen levels in my skin?
From about the age of 20 onwards we lose between 1-1.5% of the collagen in our skin each year. From the age of 30 collagen production is significantly reduced. Collagen loss results in wrinkles, fine lines and dry, blemished or thinning skin.
The collagen in skinade™
In the nutricosmetics industry, collagen peptides from marine sources are growing in popularity due to their high quality and efficacy. However, in order to be beneficial to the skin, collagen peptides must be bio-available, they need to be easily and quickly absorbed by the body.
skinade™ contains pure Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen Peptides sourced from the skin of fresh-water fish, which are low in sodium and eliminate the potential for mercury contamination. Our peptides are extracted using a gentle enzymatic hydrolysis process to achieve the lowest possible molecular weight (2000 Daltons). The lower the molecular weight, the easier it is for the body to absorb the collagen.
Once hydrolysed the peptides are stable and soluble. Hydrolysed marine collagen proteins are known to be the most abundant in Type I and Type III collagen, the same type that is found in the skin. Studies* have shown that fragmentation of collagen fibres leads to a decrease in total collagen, mainly Type I and Type III, and accelerates the ageing process – especially above 60 years of age.
The low molecular weight of our collagen makes it more bio-available and, therefore, beneficial to the body. Several studies demonstrate the bio-availability of our hydrolysed collagen peptides. Results show that, after being ingested orally, more than 90% of hydrolysed collagen peptides are absorbed by the body, with 95% absorbed within the first 12 hours.
Collagen peptides may also trigger the body’s own natural process of collagen production by stimulating the proliferation of fibroblasts – the cells responsible for new collagen generation. This is evident in the increase in fibroblast density and the diameter of collagen fibres in the skin, both of which improve the skin’s strength, suppleness and structure.
Taken daily for up to 12 weeks, the collagen peptides in skinade™ :
- Increase skin hydration levels
- Increase skin smoothness by reducing the number of fine lines
- Prevent the formation of deep wrinkles
- Improve skin suppleness.
