Let's face it -- it's hard to be anything but skeptical these days when trying to answer the question... do collagen and elastin products work?

Why is it this way? More than likely it's because of the way collagen and elastin skin care products are being advertised. They promote lotions containing collagen as being able to increase it's levels within your skin.

We know this isn't possible because collagen molecules are four times too large to fit through your outer skin layer (epidermis) and reach your dermis where your collagen and elastin matrix is. Also the substance collagen isn't a stimulant that is capable of producing more collagen.

"Yes" -- it is possible to increase collagen and elastin proteins in your skin. But... You need to use substances that are clinically proven to be able to stimulate re-growth of these two proteins.

A skin cream manufacturer in New Zealand has developed a new product called Cynergy TK"(TM)" it includes an ingredient called functional keratin"(TM)". This new nano form of keratin is bioactive and solublized. Therefore, this minute sized molecule can easily penetrate deeply through the epidermis to stimulate collagen and elastin re-growth.

Another more common substance, not quite as effective as Cynergy TK is Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10. This is Coenzyme Q10 in a special "nano-emulsion" form -- again because of its small size it can penetrate through the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production.

The final natural substance that I know about that can positively affect these two proteins is Phytessence Wakame... It is extracted from Japanese sea kelp and has been used by them for centuries in dried foods and facial products.

It inhibits the activity of the enzyme hyaluronidase that breaks down hyaluronic acid in the skin. Without this acid collagen and elastin fibers tend to lose the glue that can contribute to a loss of youthful appearance.

So -- to answer the question "Do collagen and elastin products work?" The answer is a definite "Yes" provided you use natural substances that are clinically proven to work at stimulating new protein cell growth.

Obviously, the objective of increasing collagen and elastin levels is to increase your skins strength, structure and elasticity. By doing this you can expect to remove fine lines and reduce wrinkles resulting in a softer, smoother younger looking complexion.
