BioCell Collagen® CG (Cosmetic Grade)

Description:

BioCell Collagen® CG (Cosmetic Grade) is a liquid cosmetic ingredient for use in topical cosmetic product applications. BioCell Collagen® CG (INCI: Hydrolyzed Chicken Cartilage Extract) is dissolved in water and preserved with citric acid and potassium sorbate.

BioCell Collagen® is composed of naturally-occurring hydrolyzed collagen type II peptides, chondroitin sulfate (CS) and hyaluronic acid (HA). BioCell's advanced matrix is not a blend of individual ingredients. Collagen, CS, 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 dermal dehydration and eventually aged skin appearances such as fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial sagging.

FAQs

What is BioCell Collagen® CG?

BioCell Collagen® CG (Cosmetic Grade) is a liquid cosmetic ingredient for use in topical cosmetic product applications. BioCell Collagen® CG (INCI: Hydrolyzed Chicken Cartilage Extract) is dissolved in water and preserved with citric acid and potassium sorbate.

BioCell Collagen® is a hydrolyzed chicken sternal cartilage extract comprised of a complex matrix of primarily collagen type II peptides, chondroitin sulfate (CS) and hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen, CS, 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 dermal dehydration and eventually aged skin appearances such as fine lines, wrinkles, and superficial sagging.

Is BioCell Collagen® CG safe and hypoallergenic?

BioCell Collagen® CG is dermatologist reviewed, and studies demonstrate that BioCell Collagen® CG is non-irritating and non-allergenic on human skin and non-cytotoxic to cells. BioCell Collagen® CG is free from animal testing.

How can BioCell Collagen® CG provide skin benefits as a cosmetic ingredient?

BioCell Collagen® provides unique collagen type II peptides, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acid (HA) and has properties that demonstrate strong hyaluronidase inhibition, protection of HA from degradation. HA level in the skin is maintained by the balance of HA synthases and hyaluronidases. Aging is associated with heightened hyaluronidase activity, which accelerates HA breakdown contributing to the skin aging process.
