AC Marine Collagen PF

Collagen synthesis is a process that slows down as we age. When collagen production fades and its support abilities decline, the skin becomes loose and saggy, causing wrinkles. By restoring some of the collagen content in the skin, the appearance of wrinkles is decreased and skin has a smoother, tighter look and feel. AC Marine Collagen PF may be used to restore one’s youthful appearance by hydrating the skin and helping to increase its natural collagen production. Since it is easily incorporated into the water phase, this product may be used in a wide variety of personal care formulas. In addition to its benefits with restoring moisture in the skin and scalp, marine collagen is capitalizing on what is arguably the most profound trend in cosmetics in the last decade. Collagen, particularly sourced from fish has been a heavily researched and documented material for increasing collagen synthesis in addition to having the other benefits of traditional topical collagen treatments.

  • Hydration Potential

    This study will demonstrate the hydration potential of natural, synthetic and animal derived materials for comparison via their respective water holding capacities. The results indicate that AC Marine Collagen PF Coconut is an effective all-natural and botanical alternative to Lanolin as it is capable of holding significantly more than its weight in water.

  • Sirius Red Fast Green Assay

    As shown in figure 4, AC Marine Collagen PF exhibited positive collagen synthesis activity. The increase in collagen production may lead to improvement in the dermal-epidermal junction integrity as well as an improved scaffolding matrix. For these reasons, we can assume AC Marine Collagen PF is suitable for cosmetic applications designed to boost collagen synthesis to aid in providing a younger and healthier complexion.

  • Improvements in Combability

    As seen in Figure 6, in comparison to the control, the shampoo that contained 5.0% AC Marine Collagen PF increased the sensorial perception of wet combing ease by 90.0%, whereas the control was rated as only improving combability by 20.0% for wet hair. When assessing dry hair combability, participants rated the control as increasing combability by 40.0% and the test material as increasing dry combability by 50.0%. Results indicate that this unique ingredient improves wet and dry combability. Therefore it is useful for preventing damage and breakage which typically results from excessive combing forces during styling.
