The Hype Around Collagen

What is Collagen and Do I Really Need It? 

From fine lines and wrinkles, to improving skin hydration and reducing the appearance of scars, Collagen is our favorite super-hero ingredient that can do it all. 

Collagen is the main structural protein in our skin providing strength, elasticity and shape. As we age, collagen production declines, leading to key visible signs of aging such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Recently, both the skincare and health and wellness industry have seen a surge in interest surrounding collagen, with various supplements, powders, lotions, and creams featuring this star ingredient. However, collagen has a large molecular weight, which means it’s too large to penetrate into the skin, and does not absorb well through topical applications.  Addressing skin health from within is the most effective way of increasing collagen levels and providing long-term results.

To truly maximize the benefits of collagen, we need to start from the inside. 


Benefits of Collagen Supplements and Droplette’s Revolutionary Micro-Mist

Oral collagen supplements are touted for their benefits to skin health, alongside enhancing the strength of hair, nails, and joints. However, due to tissue partitioning, the majority of ingested collagen may not directly benefit the skin. This limitation is addressed by Droplette's Collagen Hydrofiller, a unique solution that delivers collagen straight to the skin, bypassing systemic distribution challenges.

Collagen's unique composition, rich in glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, sets it apart from other proteins. Proline stabilizes collagen's helical structure, while hydroxyproline, a modified form of proline, is critical for collagen's folding, assembly, and overall strength. These amino acids are pivotal for collagen's role in maintaining skin structure and function.

Droplette's technology utilizes fluid physics to convert collagen into a fine micro-mist, enabling deep skin penetration—20 times deeper than topical applications. This approach not only provides an immediate cosmetic enhancement but also supports the skin's natural collagen synthesis and repair mechanisms. The Collagen Hydrofiller capsules are designed to plump, hydrate, and rejuvenate the skin from within, offering a quick path to visible results.

While oral supplements offer systemic health benefits, they fall short in directly boosting skin collagen levels. In contrast, Droplette's targeted delivery system supplies essential amino acids directly to the skin, facilitating effective collagen buildup. This dual strategy—combining systemic support from supplements with Droplette's targeted action—forms a comprehensive skin health regimen that promotes radiant, youthful skin by addressing both systemic and localized needs for collagen.
