//collagen hyaluronic clinical research

Your skin and hair say a lot about who you are, about your lifestyle, living environment, nutrition and even skincare regime you practice. The outermost layer of the skin protects us from ultraviolet (UV) radiation, harmful chemicals, and infections. Dermis is the much thicker second layer of skin. This is where you will find collagen. Collagen fibres in the dermis provide the infrastructure for elastin, which maintains the skin’s elasticity, and for hyaluronic acid to trap moisture. Aging takes place here before being visible on the surface. Vitness is blended with premium grade Peptan Hydrolysed Marine collagen which unlike standard collagens is scientifically targeted for improvement of skin health


// wrinkle reduction


A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical study of Peptan or placebo over 90 days showed a reduction in wrinkles:

 

  • 13% Wrinkle reduction around the eyes
  • 10% Wrinkle reduction around the mouth

// collagen fragmentation


In a randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial with 10g Collagen (2 spoons of vitness twice a day) over a period of 12 weeks, Peptan has been shown to:

 

Decrease the fragmentation of the collagen network by 31% after twelve weeks of intake

// skin hydration  


The Collagen in vitness has been demonstrated to not only increase skin's collagen density but also its moisture level. Increase skin hydration by 28% after 8 weeks 91% of the supplemented group reported higher skin hydration levels during the same period

// bio-availabillity

 

To ensure bioactivity, it is essential to have exceptional bioavailability. Human and other in-vivo studies have confirmed that collagen peptides are highly digestible and bioavailable. 90% of the collagen peptides are digested and available within the connective tissues just a few hours after digestion.

// what is hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring connective tissue found throughout our bodies with 50% found in the skin. It has a remarkable capacity to hold water, up to 1000 times its own weight, so put simply, it has an important role in keeping moisture in the skin. Hydrated skin is softer, plumper and fine lines and wrinkles appear less obvious. Dry, dehydrated skin appears dull and without that healthy ‘glow’ that we all want to see in our skin. If you think of a dry, brittle sponge versus a sponge hydrated in water, you get an idea of how dermal hydration affects your skin. As we age, the amount of HA our bodies produce decreases and recent studies have shown that supplementing HA has a positive effect.
