Collagen is one of the main building proteins in the body. Its role is to keep the skin as supple and well-structured as possible and prevent it from dehydrating, minimise wrinkles and constantly renew skin cells.
From the age of 25 the amount of collagen in the skin decreases by 1.5 % every year; after the age of 40 it is not created at all, which is why it needs to be supplemented in order to maintain healthy, supple and wrinkle-free skin. The decreasing amount of collagen in the body causes cellulite; the skin starts to dry out and nails and hair lose their shine. To put it simply, the irreversible ageing process is starting.
