Have your 10-step skincare routine down to a fine art, but still feel as though something is missing? As a beauty aficionado, you’ve no doubt heard the term “ingestible beauty” more and more over the past few years. While topical skincare routines are undoubtedly important, they often only scratch the surface of what's needed to support your skin's health. This is where the concept of ingestible supplements steps in—offering a comprehensive approach that delves deeper into the root causes of skin aging.
Dose & Co's Beauty Collagen powder embodies this approach, recognising that beauty starts below the surface. As our most advanced blend, Beauty Collagen is a targeted skin supplement, nourishing the skin with active ingredients collagen, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to renew, hydrate and firm. Intrigued? We deep dive into this superstar blend below.
WHAT IS COLLAGEN?
Collagen is the most abundant structural protein in the body, found in the framework of your cells and tissues. It’s in fact the main component of the body’s connective tissue, helping to make up your skin, hair, nails, joints, bones, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. Collagen is one of the things that: not only does it provide the support matrix that underpins healthy skin, but our collagen levels are a key determinant to the preservation of skin firmness and elasticity as we age. Along with being made naturally in the body it can be derived from animal sources, and consumed in the form of ingestible powders and tablets, such as Dose & Co’s.
WHY SHOULD I TAKE A COLLAGEN SUPPLEMENT?
The body’s ability to produce and turn over its own collagen supply naturally—as with many things!—slows down over time, decreasing by about 1% to 1.5% every year from your 20s onward. This depletion is one of the main factors in the development of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin (hello eye bags), and also contributes to loss of firmness, hair thinning and breakage, brittle nails, and poor bone and joint health, dulling your youthful glow.
When collagen peptides such as Dose & Co’s are ingested, they stimulate fibroblast proliferation in the dermal layers, triggering the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin. That’s because our collagen peptides have undergone a process called hydrolysis, giving the proteins the optimal molecular weight (2000 daltons) to be absorbed into the bloodstream and target skin cells. It’s a way to drive visible results from the inside out: think of it as beauty from beyond the surface.
ENTER: BEAUTY COLLAGEN
As our most advanced blend yet, Dose & Co Beauty Collagen powder combines high-dose collagen peptides with active ingredients Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C. As such, this targeted beauty blend is shown to help visibly increase skin hydration and elasticity and improve fine lines. Think: an improved moisture barrier, visibly brighter skin, thicker hair, stronger nails and a more youthful complexion.
Beauty Collagen Mixed Berry is a naturally flavoured blend that works well in water, juice, smoothies and breakfast recipes such as oats and fruit.
LEVELING UP WITH HYALURONIC ACID AND VITAMIN C
As our specialized skin blend, Beauty Collagen is also infused with two additional skin-loving ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidant-rich Vitamin C. Hyaluronic Acid, renowned for its moisture-retaining abilities, is a powerhouse ingredient that is shown to improve skin hydration and support the skin’s moisture barrier, as well as increasing skin elasticity to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
To round this out, Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant, combats free radicals that accelerate skin aging. Vitamin C also aids in collagen synthesis, further reinforcing the skin's structure and vibrancy. The added bonus? This well-known ingredient also supports iron formation, along with the health of teeth, bones, cartilage and connective tissue.
REAL RESULTS WITH BEAUTY COLLAGEN
In one consumer perception study, undertaken with 79 people of various ages who took Beauty Collagen for 28 days, a remarkable 95% of participants reported that their skin appeared more luminous, while 83% noted improvements in their skin tone and texture, and an impressive 80% found their skin to be noticeably softer, in just one month. These tangible results are a testament to the transformative power of Beauty Collagen from the inside out.
