Collagen replenishes nutrients in aging skin, delaying or eliminating the need for cosmetic surgery. Collagen represents 30 percent of human protein and helps skin stay firm, moisturized and supple. The nutrient, found abundantly in young skin, collagen constantly renews cells. As we age, collagen levels drop, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Used in conjunction with other anti-aging lotions and potions like retinol and exfoliation, collagen can change the skin’s appearance dramatically.
