Collagen powder or a collagen supplement?

A collagen powder or a collagen supplement, which works best? It is impossible to imagine the beauty industry today without collagen. Collagen is processed in collagen powders, collagen tablets, collagen drinks, collagen creams, etc. Which form of collagen works best? Read on! 

Which kind of collagen works best

There are different types and origins of collagen. Collagen can be obtained from various natural sources such as fish, animals and plants. Based on the source of the collagen, a collagen supplement can again contain different types of collagen. Viscollagen is the purest form of collagen, most identical to human collagen and therefore also the best collagen to take. Want to know more about what collagen is and what it does for our body? Read all about collagen in this article ‘what is collagen and what does it do’ or download our free E-book about collagen at the bottom of this page.

The difference between a collagen powder and supplement.

Collagen not only has different sources, but also different extraction methods. The extraction method is the way collagen is extracted from the skin of the fish. This influences the structure of the collagen and thus its effectiveness. Based on this, the quantity is determined and thus also the form of collagen: a powder (larger quantity) or a supplement (smaller quantity). We would like to explain this in more detail. 

Hydrolysed  collagen

Hydrolysed collagen uses heat, chemicals or acids to extract the collagen from the skin of the fish. This breaks down the structure of the collagen and you need a larger amount to experience results (often several grams). This form of collagen is often incorporated into collagen powders or collagen tablets, and you often need several tablets or scoops of powder per day to experience effects. 

Native collagen

Native collagen is extracted from the skin of fish without heat, chemicals or acids, leaving the collagen structure intact. As a result, you need less collagen to experience results (from 40 mg). This form of collagen is very powerful, allowing you to experience results with just 1 pill a day.

Which collagen is the best choice for me?

Because after the age of 25 the natural production of collagen decreases, triggering the natural ageing process, we recommend stimulating the collagen production from within. We recommend choosing collagen in its purest form, without additives: fish collagen. As described above, there are several types of fish collagen: hydrolysed collagen or native collagen. Both types have an effective effect, but the main issue is ease of use: a few grams of powder or 1 small capsule every day. Skin for Skin’s collagen supplement is 100% natural, made of native fish collagen in its purest form, extracted from wild caught North Sea fish and therefore completely sustainable and made in Holland!

Collagen powder or collagen supplements?

Skin for Skin collagen supplement 

We extract collagen from the residual flow of fish skin in a 100% natural way. We have developed a patented process for this. Through this method, you obtain native collagen. After this extraction process, we capsulate the native fish collagen powder for optimum convenience. The enzymes in the stomach cut up proteins for further transport and absorption. Because we offer intact collagen, the RDA can therefore be reached with just 1 capsule/pill per day! We can’t make it any easier!

What makes the collagen supplement of Skin for Skin unique?

Skin for Skin is the only provider of native fish collagen. We have patented our unique extraction method. Our collagen is extremely powerful, with only one small capsule per day you can get enough collagen. Besides the unique, powerful dose and our unique extraction method, there are a few other features that make our collagen unique: 

  • Our collagen is 100% natural!
  • Skin for Skin collagen is the most sustainable collagen; our collagen comes from WILD caught North Sea fish. This fish is processed for the food industry by our parent company Varia fish. We use the skin, a waste stream, for our collagen. No waste, completely circular! Read more about our story here.
  • The collagen of Skin for Skin is completely “Made in Holland.”
  • Absorption of collagen in the body: The body breaks down collagen into amino acids, which in turn are building blocks for various processes in the body. Because our collagen is still intact (native collagen), the body can absorb our collagen well. 
  • User friendly: no big scoops of powders and drinks, only 1 little capsule a day!

Results of our collagen supplement 

In the skin, collagen is responsible for firmness and elasticity. The skin scan below shows that after using Skin for Skin collagen, only after five days, the collagen level in the skin has visibly increased. The green dots represent our connective tissue/collagen fibres. The white dots show our collagen, blue hyaluronic acid and red and yellow are cell activity renewal. The result? Firmer, fuller, hydrated and radiant skin! This is just one of the many benefits that collagen can provide.
