Kollagen Intensiv consists only of natural and organic grade ingredients known for their anti aging properties. It very important to read the ingredient list first before you buy any product, as some of the products contain irritating chemicals which can harm the skin.
The Star Ingredient: Syn-Coll
Syn-Coll is the main active ingredient that does the wonders! Let’s find out why and how it works.
Syn-Coll is based on a synthetic peptide that is designed to stimulate our skin’s natural mechanism to produce collagen, and reduce all types of wrinkles. In the past few years, peptides have gained enormous attention for playing a pivotal role in dramatically reducing wrinkles. Syn-Coll is an unpreserved and glycerine based solution of a very small peptide. Syn-Coll is known as a cosmetic ingredient that is used in skin care products. DSM Nutritional Products Ltd. currently holds the patent rights for both – production and topical application of Syn-Coll.
With the objective to gauge the value of Syn-Coll, a study was performed on 60 volunteers. This particular study lasted for 84 days with twice a day topical application of Syn-Coll. In this study, Syn-Coll was compared to placebo and against a reference substance called Palmitoyl Pentapeptide. Of course, both the products were used at the same recommended use level. The results of the study clearly showed Syn-Coll to have a higher efficacy for all tested parameters.
Syn-Coll works really well with Retinol since retinol aids in stimulating collagen and simultaneously, Syn-Coll combats conspicuous signs of aging related to collagen depletion.
The Other 5 key ingredients found in Kollagen Intensiv:
Shea butter is a vegetable fat extracted from African Karite Tree. It has a very rich consistency and is very useful for nourishing, softening and repairing the skin. Shea butter also prevents skin dryness and some evidence suggests that it has the ability to stimulate the natural production of collagen and tighten the skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a chemical compound found naturally in the connective tissues of the body, including skin. It acts as natural moisturizer and stimulates collagen production required for minimizing wrinkles and saggy skin. For this reason Hyaluronic acid has been used a more natural alternative to Botox treatments.
Vitamin C is powerful anti-oxidant nutrient that helps deliver oxygen to skin cells and minimizes oxidative stress. When applied externally it brightens up the skin tone and makes skin regain its natural youthfulness.
Retinol is a form of vitamin A which is a powerful antioxidant and helps inhibit damage caused by oxidative stress and environmental conditions (e.g sun damage). Retinol acts on a cellular level to stimulate collagen synthesis and fill up fine lines and wrinkles.
Green Tea and Cucumber extracts
Both of these natural extracts possess anti-oxidant, toning and moisturizing properties and are suitable for all skin types.
