Does plant collagen exist in the world? The answer is: no.

  1. What is collagen?

Collagen is a biological macromolecule that is an essential nutrient for the body. It belongs to the insoluble fibrous protein, is also a class of extracellular matrix, and is extracted from the structure of the animal, all kinds of collagen, fish protein is the closest to the human body, and can be identified by the human tissue needed to receive collagen.

  1. What are the sources of collagen?

There are two sources of collagen on the market: one is the animal source extraction method, such as pigs, and fish; the second is the recombinant genetic engineering method, two sources of ways.

  1. Traditional collagen

The animal-derived collagen extracted from animal tissues such as pig skin, cow Achilles tendon, fish skin, fish scales, etc. is fundamentally different from human-derived collagen in terms of gene sequence and is a non-homologous substance. After entering the skin, it will be blocked by the immune layer of the skin and cannot penetrate the basal layer and dermis.

  1. Recombinant human collagen (microbial fermentation collagen)

It is recombinant collagen with excellent skin affinity and histocompatibility, obtained by fermentation induction and isolation and purification, using the human collagen gene as a template, preferentially selected and optimally modified, and introduced into beech yeast.

NEUTRIHERBS COLLAGEN BODY LOTION is rich in human-like collagen, which quickly moisturizes and relieves dryness; smooths the skin to say goodbye to roughness, peeling, and other problems, and gives the skin a silky touch like goose feathers.

So which collagen in the recombinant collagen has the biggest impact on the human body?

1) Type I human collagen

Type I collagen is the highest content in our dermis, the main collagen, belongs to the fibrous collagen, for the dermis structure support and elastic tension give important significance, rich content of type I collagen can fight the skin elasticity decline due to photo aging and natural aging. In addition, type I collagen is a fibrous protein, which has the function of "biological scaffolding" and is good for promoting the proliferation of epidermal cells and for epidermal repair after professional cosmetic procedures.

2) Recombinant human-like collagen

Recombinant-humanoid collagen is the 52nd duplicate of type I collagen active fragment, which has stronger biological activity and can promote the migration and crawling of epidermal cells more effectively. Recombinant-human-like collagen acts as a scaffold to promote cell migration and crawling, thus accelerating the repair of epidermal damage.

Also, recombinant-human-like collagen can promote the adhesion and proliferation of epithelial cells and other cells, which can further promote collagen secretion by human skin fibroblasts.


3) Type III human collagen

In the early stage of wound healing when it is in the proliferative phase, type III collagen dominates because it is good for promoting fibroblast growth and inducing fibroblasts to secrete collagen to repair damaged tissues, and when the proliferation slows down in the later stage and enters the remodeling phase, the proportion of type I collagen increases significantly (providing structural support for the dermis and giving it tissue tone), while the proportion of type III collagen has a clear role in promoting fibroblast growth, so exogenous supplementation of type III collagen can help increase fibroblast activity and collagen secretion to increase skin water content and elasticity.

4)Mini small molecule recombinant collagen peptide

With a small molecular weight of 217 Da, it not only has the biological efficacy of specific fragments of recombinant collagen but also has the characteristics of transdermal absorption and faster action, which can be more effective. It is mainly used as a substrate in fibroblasts for biosynthesis, providing nutrients and energy for cell growth and collagen secretion.

NEUTRIHERBS COLLAGEN MASK is rich in human-like collagen, which can quickly replenish skin moisture and relieve dryness; promote cell metabolism, and empower energy to lighten fine lines and wrinkles.
