  1. What are collagen peptides made from?

    In skincare, collagen peptides are used to boost collagen production in the skin, helping to improve its elasticity and overall appearance. But have ever wondered where do they come from?

    Conventional collagen peptides are typically derived from animal sources, such as the skin and bones of dead animals. That’s because collagen is a protein found naturally in the connective tissues of animals, including mammals, fish and birds.

    Thankfully, there’s a vegan and cruelty-free alternative — biotechnologically derived peptides. These peptides are created through biotechnological processes, where microorganisms such as yeast are used in special lab conditions to produce the peptides.

    A sustainable and ethical option, biotechnologically derived peptides work to improve skin elasticity and firmness, reducing the appearance of fine lines and promoting overall skin wellbeing.
