New skin study highlights collagen peptide efficacy

The results of a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial on collagen density in skin subsequent to Peptan intake, are detailed in a graph.

The first comprehensive scientific publication of research into the anti-ageing benefits of Peptan collagen peptides has just been released. Appearing first in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, this paper takes to the next level the science behind collagen peptides used as a supplement for skin beauty.
