Skincare Myth: Collagen Cream

Collagen is emerging key ingredient used in skincare, it becomes trend in anti-aging range. Those collagen facial cream claim that their products will turn back the clock, offer you younger and softer skin.

Have you ever wondered if all those collagen creams actually do the job they tell you they do? Let me fill you in on some things you must know about the trillion dollar skin care industry's products because I don't want you to be duped into buying there promises.

It's a scam. That collagen cream firms, lift and reduces wrinkle...just not true.

Take a look at collagen creams, actually collagen molecule size is too large to penetrate skin effectively. Our skin is absorbent but collagen is simply too large to be absorbed, apply collagen cream all day just a waste of time and money. Collagen cream can do nothing but provide an excellent HYDRATING properties on skin.

There are a few new techniques to create a better collagen cream. Some brands use partially hydrolyzed collagen, collagen fragments may small enough to penetrate skin but it is too small to properly integrate into the skin's own collagen framework. They are likely to be wasted out of the skin via lympathic flow. Some claim to possess unique transdermal technologies to deliver collagen deep into the skin via topical application. However, it is no yet supported by sufficient evidence. Plus, we do not sure whether successfully delivered collagen will integrate into skin matrix and improve skin strength's and regularity. The research need following.

at the end i choose nutrition, which i think i really like it. In actuality, i would like to further study in cosmetic science but local uni do not offer any course related to it.

i do use a few skincare brands, and always love to try out new products. To me, the most important thing is application and procedures corporate with choice of proper products that suit our skin. U have to analyze the root cause then only u find proper solution.

i bought mukti at bodybar (kl, pj area). to me the price is ok, i think it is suitable for normal skin. problem skin pls look for living nature, which provided higher healing effects.
