What is collagen?
You might have noticed it as a key ingredient in your night cream or nutritional supplement. But what is collagen exactly and why is this superstar ingredient so sought after?
Collagen makes up more than half the total volume of protein found in the skin and is what makes it strong, thick, supple, and smooth. Collagen gives the skin its structure and contributes to 60% of the skin’s moisturizing processes, giving the skin firmness and volume. All signs of ageing are contributed to the loss of collagen; first signs such as fine lines and wrinkles, deeper stagnant lines, and loss of elasticity. To improve overall signs of ageing it is important to focus on the quality and quantity of collagen.
Our body’s natural collagen production begins to slow down as we age. We can thank this generative process for signs of ageing, such as wrinkles, glycation, and sagging. Other lifestyle factors such as a high sugar diet, excessive alcohol intake, smoking and excessive sun exposure can speed up the depletion of collagen. We lose 1,5% of our collagen per year from age 25; therefore, it is vital to incorporate a collagen-rich product from the age of 25 years and up.
What is special about QMS collagen?
Collagen is one of the best natural skincare ingredients available. Our advanced collagen serums are the foundation of QMS and are still considered one of the most iconic innovations in the beauty sector. We use the highest-grade skin-identical collagen for ultimate results. Our collagen stays in the skin for longer and does not deteriorate. It improves moisture by 245% after just 8 weeks and is the best moisture-retaining ingredient that exists.
We use a patented and exclusive delivery system and Neotech A15 ® technology to reintroduce collagen into the skin and replace lost collagen. The unique collagen-hyaluronic acid complex allows for instant and long-term results. Each collagen serum has a 12-hour effect with only one application providing perfect moisture that lasts all day. Matrixyl 3000 is combined with Neotech A15 ® to strengthen the skin structure from within by sending signals to fibroblasts to produce more collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. All these highly technological actives have been scientifically proven to:
- Dramatically increase the levels of moisturisation and elasticity.
- Soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Reduce the appearance of uneven skin texture, smoothing the skin surface and diminishing the appearance of pores.
This revolutionary facial care system, which addresses the underlying causes of ageing was developed by Dr. med. Erich Schulte, according to the scientific principles of cell rejuvenation and benefit every skin type in recovering its natural capacity in the fight against visible signs of ageing.
