Classics seldom follow trends. On the contrary, they remaster themselves setting trends by inspiring higher levels of excellence, technology and performance. This is the case of collagen, which with its exceptional anti-ageing properties has been passed down for generations. People trust in this ingredient for its efficacy and as a habit, becoming loyal to those products containing collagen. Initially, traditional collagen was sourced from animals such as cows or fishes and it was used in its protein native form or partially or completely hydrolyzed. Hydrolysates and amino acids act as building blocks for collagen formation and to stimulate collagen synthesis in fibroblasts.
However, customers have evolved demanding animal-friendliness and sustainability and so new types of collagens have appeared in the market. Nowadays, we can find synthetic collagen, biomimetic collagen molecules, collagen booster ingredients and recombinant collagen produced by bacteria, yeasts or even plant-cultures. However, yeasts and bacteria cannot perform post-translational hydroxylations which are key for the triple helix stabilisation. Hence the resulting collagen is not fully functional.
LipoTrue presents Col-Frag remasteredTM stepping into a new collagen era covering these needs. Col-Frag remasteredTM is a type I collagen fragment produced in Wild plants as bio-factories. This exclusive and sustainable technology platform allows to obtain a molecule identical to a fragment of the human collagen type I sequence, with the proper post-translational hydroxylations required to be fully functional.
Col-Frag remasteredTM acts as a building block for collagen synthesis and as a collagen booster, tightens the dermis and epidermis while preventing senescence. It revealed a synergistic effect and a superior efficacy to Ascorbyl Glucoside in reducing wrinkles, providing a facelift and enhancing skin brightness.
