Reinforcing Skin Hydration
Marine-based collagen offers clinically-studied anti-aging, hydration & wrinkle reduction for supplement, beverage and functional food products.
PLT Health Solutions, announced that it has begun marketing Collactive Collagen Complex in the United States. Collactive is a 100% marine-based, all-natural ingredient composed of collagen and elastin peptides formulated in the same ratio found naturally in human skin. Collactive combines the two main constituents of the skin’s extracellular matrix and has an anti-wrinkle synergic action: elastin fibers give the dermis suppleness that complements collagen fibers tensile strength.
A study on Collactive showed a synergistic anti-wrinkle action, stimulating skin to lift and tone sagging areas and minimize lines and wrinkles, while increasing skin’s ability to retain moisture. With a low molecular weight, Collactive is also water-soluble and fully digestible, making it an ideal anti-aging ingredient for a wide variety of beauty-from-within formulations. The ingredient is manufactured by Copalis, representing a cooperative of fisheries in Boulogne-sur-Mer, France – Europe’s leading port for fish processing. Collactive is fully traceable and sustainably produced.
According to Seth Flowerman, Executive Vice President at PLT Health Solutions, the proprietary formulation with multiple complementary mechanisms coupled with its solubility and low effective dose make Collactive an ideal ingredient for the growing beauty-from-within consumer market in the United States. «A recent market report showed a growth rate for ‘nutricosmetics’ of over 11% – with a very strong showing by collagen and ready-to-drink beverages that focus on beauty-from-within. Collactive is an ideal ingredient for skin care – or beauty-from-within – because it is great for a broad range of consumer product applications,» he said.
«Collactive has been demonstrated effective at a 2-gram use level which compares favorably to other collagen ingredients that are recommended at 5- to 10-gram levels. Add the excellent sustainability and traceability profile of Collactive and this is an ingredient that will be highly attractive to consumers seeking innovative approaches to natural skin-care,» he added.
