andMe launches Collagen Booster: A plant based collagen builder
Collagen is a protein that is found in your skin, hair, nails and bones. It holds the bones together and keep the joints strong, it also makes the skin elastic, supple, and looking young.
As you grow old and approach your late 20s your body begins to produce less collagen and your skin begins to age. You might notice wrinkles begin to surface and your skin gradually loses it’s elasticity as you approach middle age.
How does ageing affect our skin?
A youthful skin comprises of:
- Collagen that provides structure to the skin and prevents wrinkles
- Elastin that provides suppleness and prevents sagging
- Hyaluronic Acid that infuses moisture to prevent dullness
After the age of 30, we start loosing 1-2% of the above key elements every year due to factors like:
- Internal factors of ageing
- External factors like UV damage
Now you must be aware that as you hit your 20s, your skin will start to lose it’s glow and suppleness. Are you concerned about the wrinkles and signs of aging? You have tried collagen creams and powders hoping it will fix your skin concern. All useless?

This component can absorb and retain moisture in the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin to take up moisture to crease out those wrinkles and plump up the skin.
