Concern with our appearance is well known. The beauty industry is very dynamic, adapting to innovations and scientific breakthroughs. Its revenue is expected to reach US$7.4 billion by 2020.1 Today, rising incomes, changing lifestyles and growing consumer awareness of the science behind health and beauty continues to drive growth and increase the demand for more choice than there was before.

Beautiful skin on the outside needs a healthy foundation on the inside. A growing body of research has shown how certain nutrients, and in particular collagen peptides, can significantly improve skin2. Also referred to as ‘Beauty from Within’ solutions, nutricosmetics are nutritional supplements which support the skin from the inside.
Globally recognized as the preferred bioactive ingredient of leading nutri-cosmetic brands, Peptan collagen peptides are safe, bioactive peptides, optimized to be easily digestible, highly bioavailable and effective in delivering specific benefits to skin tissue. Peptan is now benefiting from a notable increase in popularity in Western markets thanks to the growth of the nutricosmetics industry outside of Asia.

As the most extensively researched collagen peptides brand available on the market, Peptan’s anti-aging benefits are well documented with visible effects demonstrated after just one month of use in several clinical studies3,4.
From the age of around 30 years, skin cells (fibroblasts) activity starts to slow down, leading to a loss of collagen density and the first appearance of visible signs of aging such as wrinkle formation, dehydration and loss of firmness, Peptan can counteract these effects of aging and promote a more youthful appearance by supplying a boost and a restructuring effect on the skin's collagen network from within. By stimulating the production of hyaluronic acid, Peptan also offers skin hydration benefits. The efficacy of Peptan is backed by a large body of evidence, and including three controlled studies on women.
In a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial3, 106 women aged 40-65 received 10g of Peptan or placebo per day for a period of three months.
The same clinical study3, also investigated the density of collagen in the dermis and showed the following:
In a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial3, 33 women aged 40-59 received 10g of Peptan or placebo per day for a period of two months.
In an ex vivo study3 an acidic glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) was visualized by Alcian Blue staining in a histological analysis.
