Hydrolyzed Collagen+ by Douglas Laboratories is a unique powder formulation that revitalizes the skin for a glowing, youthful appearance. Collagen peptides with hyaluronic acid, HydroPeach Ceramides, and collagen builders support healthy skin by promoting collagen production, moisture retention, and skin elasticity.
This product is water neutral, meaning that the powder can be mixed into a clear liquid at room temperature with no change in color, taste or odor. Fruit, herbs or other flavorings may be added to create a refreshing beverage.
- Enhances skin hydration and elasticity
- Supports healthy skin appearance
Functions and Mechanism of Action
The dermis, the inner layer of skin, is composed of collagen and elastin. During the natural aging process, the skin undergoes morphological, structural, and functional changes — including a reduction in collagen and elastin fibers — that promote the formation of lines and wrinkles.
Hydrolyzed collagen consists of small peptides produced from native collagen, consisting mainly of Type I and III collagen. Due to its composition, hydrolyzed collagen has higher bioavailability and enhanced antioxidant capacity compared to native collagen.
In clinical trials, individuals who supplemented with collagen hydrolysate showed improved skin moisture retention and elasticity, which may support healthy aging skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring component in the human body. It is found at the interface of collagen and elastin fibers, where it assists in holding of the structure. In aged skin, the quantity of hyaluronic acid decreases, which may affect collagen and elastin fibers and contribute to fine lines and wrinkles.
Clinical studies show that supplementation with hyaluronic acid enhances skin moisture and may diminish the appearance of wrinkles, while increasing epidermal ceramide levels. Hyaluronic acid supports the skin by promoting healthy turnover and renewal of keratinocytes, thus moderating the appearance of fine lines..
Intracellular lipids are important for maintaining skin barrier function. Ceramides account for 40% of skin intracellular lipids; therefore, increasing ceramide levels may contribute to healthy skin.
In clinical studies, individuals who supplemented with plant-derived glucosylceramides had enhanced levels of ceramides along with improved skin moisture retention and skin barrier function.
This formula contains peach-derived glucosylceramides to support healthy skin appearance, along with vitamin and mineral co-factors including vitamin C, copper and zinc, which play a role in collagen formation.
