Collagen is a protein and all proteins are composed of chains of particular amino acids in a particular sequence. Different proteins will be composed of different chains of amino acids
Collagen is primarily composed of three amino acids – glycine, proline, and lysine.
Whichever method is employed to stimulate collagen production in the skin – typically via physical intervention – chemical peels, laser treatments, microdermabrasion, skin needling etc, or chemical intervention via collagen stimulating peptides such as Matrixyl 3000; without sufficient raw materials at hand, the cells that make collagen can’t really do an efficient job. Essentially it would be like switching on the manufacturing machine without feeding the machine with the raw materials to make the output.
Although amino acids can be derived from ones diet only trace amounts might make it to the skin because other biological processes will hog any available.
Fortunately amino acids can be delivered directly to the skin via topical application where they can be held and utilised.
SR-Skincare Aminoderm serum contains these three vital amino acids in a light water based serum. Daily application will ensure your skin has sufficient glycine, proline, and lysine to enable collagen making cells (fibroblasts) to produce the collagen your skin needs.
