Collagen is a natural polypeptide protein Collagen is a natural polypeptide protein and the most abundant protein in the body! Collagen is an important component of the skin that acts like a scaffold and the main building block for cells and tissues. Women produce less collagen than men and collagen is lost at a rate of 1% per year. Elastin is also a protein found in connective tissues of the body and skin. This protein is elastic and is responsible for tissues to “snap back, like a rubber band”, into their original shape after stretching. These two proteins are important as they work in synergy giving the skin its natural contour and firmness. Collagen provides rigidity, while elastin allows skin to stretch. It is therefore important to use products with effective ingredients that stimulate and protect collagen and elastin on a cellular level.
