As the name suggested, our Collagen Skin Boost superfood is an edible skincare supplement designed to supercharge your body’s ability to make and maintain collagen within the skin. Whether you realise it or not, you’ve probably been eating skincare for most of your life – smoothies, juices, vitamin supplements, but it is only in recent years that we’ve seen the rise of curated and target skin-focused ingestibles that are the perfect addition to your skincare regime. Ingestibles come in many forms, liquids, powders, teas and tablets and they are designed to heal the body and in particular the skin, from the inside out.
Why is Collagen Good for your Skin?
A pioneer in the skin health field, Vanessa created this product because she wanted to offer a total holistic approach to skincare. The more she learned the more she understood that great skin comes just as much from within as from without and using the expertise she has gained from years in the skincare business, she has formulated a powdered superfood with the highest commitment to purity and clean beauty.
Astaxanthin & Marine Collagen Skin Boost Skin, Hair & Nails Superfood is packed full of natural ingredients that will enhance collagen production within the skin itself, fight free radicals, enhance immune and gut health and work towards delivering truly healthy radiant skin. Vanessa knows that inner beauty feeds outer beauty and her Collagen Skin Boost supports that with organic and powerful ingredients.
What is Inside the Astaxanthin & Marine Collagen Skin Boost?
What is Astaxanthin?
One of the powerful ingredients in Collagen Skin Boost is a name you might not be familiar with – Astaxanthin. Don’t worry – you’ll be hearing plenty about this superpowered antioxidant.
Astaxanthin has gained popularity in recent years due to its numerous benefits for the skin, hair, and overall health. It is a naturally occurring pigment that is found in a variety of sources, including microalgae, yeast, salmon, trout, krill, shrimp, crayfish, and seaweed. It is a type of carotenoid, which is a class of pigments that are known for their antioxidant properties.
Astaxanthin is one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world, and it has been shown to offer a wide range of health benefits, including improved skin health and appearance. It works by protecting the body from harmful free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can cause damage to cells and contribute to the signs of aging. Free radicals are produced as a result of exposure to environmental stressors, such as UV radiation, pollution, and excess stress.
When taken as an ingestible, astaxanthin is absorbed into the bloodstream and transported to various parts of the body, where it works to neutralize free radicals and protect cells from damage. This can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improve skin elasticity and hydration. In addition to its benefits for skin health, astaxanthin has also been shown to support overall health, including heart health, eye health, and immune function.
What is Marine Collagen?
The other main ingredient is marine collagen, an ingredient Vanessa has used over the years in several of her potent moisturising creams. Marine Collagen is a popular ingredient in many supplements because of its ability to heal the body and protect it against degeneration and injury.
Collagen is a type of protein that is naturally found in our bodies, and it plays a crucial role in maintaining the health and appearance of our skin, hair and nails. Marine collagen is a specific type of collagen that is extracted from fish, typically from the scales, skin, or bones, rather than from bovine or porcine sources (most collagen supplements on the market come from cows).
One of the main benefits of marine collagen is that it is highly bioavailable, meaning that it is easily absorbed by the body and utilised for its various benefits. This is because the molecular structure of marine collagen is smaller than other types of collagen, allowing it to be more easily broken down and absorbed.
As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen, which can lead to signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin. Marine collagen works by supplementing the body's natural collagen production, helping to support skin health and appearance.
When taken orally, marine collagen is absorbed into the bloodstream and transported to various parts of the body, including the skin. Here, it helps to support the skin's natural structure and elasticity, keeping it looking youthful and radiant. In addition to supporting skin health, marine collagen is also beneficial for hair and nail health. It can help to strengthen hair and nails, making them less prone to breakage, and promote their overall health and appearance. Collagen is also incredible for gut healing and in turn, immune system health, making it something of a superhero – what doesn’t it do?
