Super Ingredient: Hydrolyzed Collagen
By Vicky Lin
We all know of collagen, the "fountain of youth" and the "miracle cure" to achieve glowing skin, strong joints and balanced health.
However, we rarely hear of hydrolyzed collagen. But recently, it's become one of the most important ingredients in skin care. So what exactly is it?
Let's start with collagen. Collagen is a huge chunk of our body's total protein that is often founded in connective tissues, bones and skin. However, the collagen found in our body is different from the collagen found in supplements and skincare products. In those products, collagen is found in the form of hydrolyzed collagen, which is essentially collagen that has been broken down into tiny particles.
The word 'hydrolyzed' comes from the 'hydrolysis,' which is a chemical process to break down protein into smaller parts. These collagen particles are broken down to become easy to process and easily dissolvable into your body.
One of the biggest benefit that collagen has on your body is the restoration of youth skin. As collagen makes up 75% of our skin's dry weight, we heavily depend on a balanced level of collagen to achieve bright and glowing skin. However, when we age, our skin's level of collagen decreases, to the point where our bodies produce one percent less collagen each year starting at age twenty! That's insane!
So this is where hydrolyzed collagen saves the day. Hydrolyzed collagen offsets the decrease in collagen production and prevents wrinkles, improving skin elasticity and reducing roughness. It is able to dissolve into your skin and heal everything!
So the next time you're purchasing skincare products, try hydrolyzed collagen! We recommend you to start with KHOHA's REJUVENATE Hydrating Serum, formulated with 100% skin-loving ingredients that bring out your healthy, youthful glow! ✨
