Sykes’ Collagen Drops are a collagen stimulating super serum, that works wonders on the skin’s ability to generate, and organize its own natural collagen within the dermis. A powerful peptide active called Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 initiates the collagen boosting properties that help rejuvenate and revive old skin to a smoother more youthful look. Delivered in a soothing seaweed extract, your skin gains the additional benefit of barrier building and moisturizing defenses to help maintain and protect the newly generated collagen.
Collagen is the building block of skin cells. Much like the quality of the foundation and the arrangement of the bricks in a house, the quality and arrangement of collagen fibrils determines the overall strength of the skin.
Sykes’ Collagen Drops were developed as a formula that concentrated on specifically stimulating the skin’s own collagen production. This ensures a safe and efficient method of achieving stronger more youthful levels of collagen.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is a deep penetrating, bioactive ingredient. This small peptide is a short chain amino acid with a unique sequence, designed to mimic the body’s own mechanism to produce collagen via the multifunctional protein called TGF-β. TGF-β is known as the key element in the synthesis of collagen and binds to a particular sequence in the body’s Collagen production process. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 being similar to TGF-β also has the capacity to bind in the sequence and thus helps stimulate the production of collagen. By improving the levels and quality of Collagen fibers in the skin, it helps to alleviate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and conditions the surface with a smoother, more uniform texture.
To give the formula some additional benefits, we based the serum in a Chondrus Crispus (Seaweed) extract. This delightful ingredient possesses the remarkable ability to moisturize and build a protective barrier on the skin.
