Magic of Collagen – Keep the Wrinkles Away
Collagen isn’t something new,
it’s been around as long as the human race, we would be lost
without it, as collagen makes up 75% of our skin. There are
different types of collagen, so for skin repair and rejuvenation,
it’s important that the right type is used to rebalance and
increase collagen levels.
|Celebrities can hide
behind a soft focus lens or let an airbrush touch them
up before they face the world. Often they go further
and reach for the botox or book themselves in for a
facelift and never look the same again. What we all
have in common is the desire to hold back the years
and try and preserve smooth, flawless skin. The replenishment
of collagen is the easiest, painless and effective answer.
“Type I” Collagen - is the most abundant collagen in the body,
found in skin, bones, tendons and other tissues. Particularly
in scar tissues.
“Type III” Collagen – is found in fast growing tissue, in
wound repair. A child has an abundance of “Type III”, which
is why their skin is so soft and heals quickly.
Over the years, collagen in the skin declines, “Type III”
collagen decreases and is replaced by “Type I”, this builds
up until the age of 35, when the skin reaches its peak. After
that “Type I” starts to decline. It’s around this time that
laughter lines are no longer funny and poor skin texture starts
our alarm bells ringing. Not only does skin sag and start
heading south, it also leaves a map of the route.
It’s no surprise that somewhere along the way the idea of
putting collagen back into the skin was born. Although UV
rays, smoking, chlorinated water and problems with glucose
metabolism, can all have a destructive effect on collagen,
there are advances being made to help reverse the damage.
In a number of studies, Marine Collagen has been shown to
stimulate both “Type I and III” collagen synthesis.
Dermatologists and plastic surgeons have used serum for many
years to support the healing process and the regeneration
of the skin following plastic surgery, laser or skin peeling
The product range we are featuring is called BioCol. Its main
component – soluble marine collagen – has been processed by
using a unique and patented method, which preserves most of
its moisture retaining properties. It is obtained from the
collagen tissue of tropical warm-water fish. The fact that
it is soluble, enables it to penetrate into the deeper layers
of the skin and help replenish the body’s own collagen stores
while at the same time stimulating collagen production to
enable tissue renewal. Improvements are seen in the smoothness
and firmness of the skin and lines become less visible.
Here are a selection of customer comments:
“The Serum is unbelievable – it has taken years off my
face and all my clients want to buy it now. And I longer have
a shaving rash. Combined with Velvet Skin and Cleansing Gel
– this is my skin care routine now.” - Pablo A., Hampshire.
not consider switching back to heavy moisturising creams
again now. Initially, I had been sceptical about the
proposed benefits of exchanging my moisturising creams
for the Serum and Velvet Skin, but the rapid improvement
in the condition of my skin has really spoken for itself.”
Amber Grewal, WGC.
“I got the Serum from a Shopping Channel initially and
thought it was amazing - I noticed a difference in my skin
during the first week of using it. When they told me it was
no longer available I almost panicked - but now I am over
the moon I found it on the Internet again. I can even get
it when I go to America later this year.”
Kim R., Dorset.
“We saw BioCol at a beauty show and were impressed with
the demonstration so we decided to stock it. Our regular customers
tried the BioCol Marine Intensive Collagen treatment – and
returned to the salon a few days later just to tell us how
wonderful their skin feels. They had never done that before!”
- Amanda, Norwich.
