About BioCell Collagen® CG
BioCell Collagen CG is a patented naturally-occurring matrix of hydrolyzed collagen peptides and low molecular weight glycosaminoglycans such as hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA are essential structural components in the skin dermis and responsible for the skin's moisture, suppleness, elasticity, and beauty. These molecules degrade as we age contributing to disarray or collapse of the dermal matrix structure, resulting in aged skin appearance. BioCell Collagen® CG promotes skin beauty by supplying essential molecules in the skin and also by inhibiting an enzyme called hyaluronidase that degrades HA.
