Collagen is the major structural component of the dermis and is the tissue that is most responsible for the youthful appearance of our skin.
Skin consists of 75% collagen, which in turn accounts for up to 90% of the connective tissues (dermis). Collagen is capable of retaining as much as 8 times its weight in water. Therefore collagen is by far the skin’s major moisturizing element.
Consequently with time, collagen undergoes many different phases of weakening. In our prime, collagen fibers are filled with water. They perform to their fullest because they are constantly supplied with “collagen fibrils” which attach themselves to these fibers, providing them with vitality and moisture.
