With aging, the solubility of collagen decreases, causing the skin to become less elastic and lose its water balance. Marine collagen is an efficient moisturizing agent.
Marine collagen, of animal origin, is a fibrous protein, an essential structural component of connective tissue.
Collagen is a protein whose function is to hold together the different structures of the body. Collagen acts as a support element in our body, therefore, it is responsible for the firmness and elasticity of our skin and has an essential role in its hydration.
As the years go by and the body ages, collagen production gradually declines. It is estimated that at the age of 40 the body produces half as much collagen as in adolescence, so an extra supply of collagen in our skin will help maintain its firmness and hydration.
