Collagen Beauty also contains Vitamin C, a free-radical scavenger that helps to protect cells while supporting both normal collagen formation and the regular functioning of skin and connective tissue, and Zinc, which is needed for normal skin, hair and nail structure and supports wound-healing. Silicone-rich Horsetail is also included, as silicone makes an important contribution to the strength of skin, hair, bones and blood vessels, and contributes to the form, flexibility and resilience of all connective tissues.
Regular use of Beauty Collagen may result in firmer and smoother skin, improved skin surface structure, fewer wrinkles and nail growth that is stronger and faster.
