We, as humans need to produce it in the maintaining of skin, hair, nails, muscles and bones – in fact, Collagen exist in 1/3 of the proteins in our body.
The natural cycle of Collagen production //
Like many other things in life, Collagen production naturally declines as we age. Therefore, over time – we see a reducing in the structural integrity of the skin, leading to visibly sagging skin, the formation of lines and wrinkles and the weakening of cartilage in joints.
The process of Collagen synthesis begins to decline around the age of 40, by the age of 60, it is known that there is typically a considerable decline in collagen production. For women, we tend to see a dramatic reduction in synthesis in women after menopause.

The skin is made up of 3 layer – Epidermis, Dermis and Hypodermis. Throughout this second layer of the skin (Dermis) is where the bundled protein Collagen is found.
