Collagen face creams don’t work. Here’s why.

L'Oreal Collagen Filler

Yes, she looks great. But is it due to the collagen? We have our doubts….

It’s simple, really.

Collagen is too big to enter the skin.

That’s it.

Collagen is a large, complicated molecule, measuring 300 nanometers long and 1.5 nanometers in diameter, with a weight ranging from 65,000 to 300,000 Daltons.

Just like pasta is too large to pass through the holes in the colander, so too is collagen. It’s too large to pass through the pores in your skin.

So if collagen can’t get into your skin, how can it work?

It can’t.

Remember, our skin is designed to keep big stuff out, not let big stuff in. Just ask any diabetic that has to give himself daily insulin shots. Wouldn’t it be easier to simply apply insulin as a cream?

Sure, but insulin is too large to get into the skin. So, it has to be injected with a needle and syringe in order for it to work.

It’s the same with collagen face creams.

So if you use wrinkle cream, especially a collagen wrinkle cream, you may want to think twice about spending that kind of money on a product that might work as a moisturizer. But as far as getting the collagen through the skin, we have our doubts

This is why we’re so keen on our Skin Renewal product. Our product contains beta glucans, which are small sugars that can penetrate your skin and trigger the production of new collagen in the skin.

By comparison, the weight of beta glucans range from 1,500 to 4,000 Daltons.

In other words, the beta glucans are up to 200 times smaller than collagen.

As a result, they have a much easier time of actually penetrating the skin and doing their job.
