Our bodies naturally produce collagen, but age and environmental factors can take their toll on this precious protein. At Swissline, we take a comprehensive approach to collagen because we know it's a multi-faceted story. We try to inhibit or slow down collagenasis, approaching collagen from every single angle. Here is our comprehensive approach to the skin's most precious protein:
COLLAGEN AS A MACROMOLECULE
Soluble collagen when used in creams and serums doesn't penetrate deep into the skin but it works its magic mostly on the surface. In fact, soluble collagen is one of the most beneficial hydrating macro molecules along with hyaluronic acid. Hydrolyzed collagen effectively moisturises the skin and delivers line-filling benefits, and this pure form of solubilized collagen is used in our Luxe-Lift Creams and serums.
BOOSTING COLLAGEN SYNTHESIS AND PROTECTING IT WITH PEPTIDE TECHNOLOGY
Think of collagen peptides as digested bits of collagen. With 'broken' pieces of amino acids (collagen) at the surface, like messengers in a reverse cycle, they induce deeper levels of the skin to signal cellular repair and collagen production. The beauty of this is that the peptides work deeper in the skin and work with your own intercellular elements like Ceramides to strengthen your skin’s barrier. You will find hydrolyzed (as well as soluble) collagen peptides in our Cell Shock 360° Serum formulas which work to slow down collagen breakdown.
COLLAGEN IN THE PERFECT FORMULA PYRAMID™
Forming the upper portion of the Perfect Formula Pyramid™, Collagen is a core protein that holds the entire body together. For this reason, it is a serious focus for us! The skin’s resilience, density and uniformity of surface all depend on it. At Swissline, we treat Collagen as a core skin-identical ingredient - alongside hyaluronic acid, peptides, and SOD.
RETINOL + COLLAGEN: A MATCH MADE IN SKINCARE HEAVEN
It turns out another skincare hero has a positive effect on collagen metabolism! Retinol has a unique metabolism and works to protect collagen against its degradation and even boosts its production. To combine both hero ingredients into your nighttime routine, you could drop our Youth Booster with retinol into one of our Cell Shock moisturisers.
