FAQ - Collastin

1. Is COLLASTIN™ similar to the other collagen products in the market?

Life Factor selects only the best, natural ingredients for COLLASTIN™. Collactive™ is the clinically proven marine actives extracted from wild cod fish of the Northern Atlantic sea, researched and manufactured by Copalis, France. Collactive™ comprises low molecular marine collagen and elastin peptides in the same ratio as in the skin dermis, 94% and 6% respectively. It is highly bioavailable and delivers fast beautifying results to the skin due to its anti-wrinkle and anti-UV properties. COLLASTIN™ is enhanced with patented rose petal extract from Japan, patented KOHJIN Glutathione, grape OPC, plant hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and other natural antioxidant berries essence to provide 8 super anti-ageing properties to your skin. Together, these ingredients whiten and rehydrate the skin as well as suppress pigmentation through its liver detoxifying property. COLLASTIN™ also inhibits the natural degradation of collagen in the dermis, allowing optimal results to be achieved to reverse or delay skin ageing.

 

2. Is 2,000 mg (2 g) an effective dosage to be consumed daily compared to higher dosages, e.g. 8,000 mg or 10,000 mg?

Collactive™ comprises 94% of collagen and 6% elastin peptides, which is the exact ratio in our skin dermis. Collactive™ is the first and only collagen in the world that demonstrates this ratio. Human clinical findings also confirmed that a daily dosage of 2,000 mg significantly improved skin texture, moisture and reduced the number of deep wrinkles. Unlike other collagen ingredients that may require high dosages to achieve desirable results, with COLLASTIN™, you only need 2,000 mg a day to experience an immediate difference to your skin texture.

 

3. Does COLLASTIN™ use artificial flavourings or colourings in its formulation?

Absolutely no. None of the flavourings and colourings in COLLASTIN™ are artificial. COLLASTIN™ uses only natural fruits and berries juice powder. The colour and natural flavour of COLLASTIN™ originate from red rose petal extract, red grape extract, red beet root, as well as mixed berries juice. COLLASTIN™ is 100% natural!

 

4. Can COLLASTIN™ be consumed by the Muslims?

6. Is COLLASTIN™ better than bird’s nest in maintaining skin suppleness?

Yes. Apart from the collagen and elastin peptides that do the magic to our skin, COLLASTIN™ serves as a super antioxidant booster. The glutathione in COLLASTIN™ provides high level of antioxidant protection by scavenging the free radicals and toxins in the body. (Please google “glutathione” for its magical effects to the skin and body). COLLASTIN™ also shields the skin from UV damage while preventing the skin collagen structure from oxidative degradation. COLLASTIN™ improves the skin moisture and suppleness with its unique formulation containing plant hyaluronic acid.

 

7. Can COLLASTIN™ be consumed by people who are allergic to seafood?

8. How does COLLASTIN™ work to protect skin from free radicals or UV radiation?

COLLASTIN™ contains powerful rose polyphenol, glutathione, grape OPC and vitamin C.

With COLLASTIN™, it provides extra protection to complement the application of external sunscreen during hot sunny days.

 

9. How does COLLASTIN™ help in skin whitening and to suppress hyperpigmentation?

14. Will my skin age faster after stopping COLLASTIN™ consumption?

No. However, the normal ageing process may take place once you stop consuming COLLASTIN™. Compared to other organs of the body, skin starts to age when we reach 21. Therefore, taking care of our skin is a lifelong practice. Besides health supplementation, choosing the right skincare products for your skin is also very crucial to ensure a youthful skin.

 

15. When should I start taking COLLASTIN™?

While the human breasts start to age at 35, natural skin ageing begins much earlier at our mid-20s. According to Dr Andrew Wright, a consultant dermatologist with Bradford NHS Trust, as we age the production of collagen that give the skin strength slows, and elastin tissues become less springy and easily snapped. The rate of cellular renewal starts to decline. This is evident with the appearance of fine lines and sagging skin, which could be accelerated by sun damage and/or oxidative stress. Supplementation with COLLASTIN™ definitely replenishes the daily loss of collagen and elastin as it contains the exact ratio of 94% to 6%, respectively, as of the skin dermis.
