A powerful blend of collagen and ceramides to boost skin hydration from within. Ceramides are lipids that are naturally found in skin. Ceramides help form the skin's protective barrier and promote water retention in the outermost layer of skin.
nutrients for hydrated skin
Youtheory® Skin Collagen+ is powerful blend of collagen and ceramides that work together to boost skin hydration from within. This healthy skin formula features CeraLOK™, a clinically studied phytoceramide that is considered the ultimate skin moisturizer.
skin is made of collagen
Collagen makes up 70-80% of the dry weight of skin. Collagen serves an important structural role in healthy skin, but gradually breaks down and diminishes over time. Studies show that as little as 2.5 grams of hydrolyzed collagen per day can help boost collagen production and revitalize skin from within.
the role of ceramides
Ceramides are lipids (fats) that are naturally found in the outermost layers of skin. Ceramides help to hold skin cells together and form a protective barrier that locks-in moisture. Although ceramides are commonly depleted during the aging process, they can and should be replenished over time to help keep your skin bouncy, smooth and youthful.
what is ceralok™?
CeraLOK™ is a Japanese-origin ceramide derived from rice (not wheat, like other ceramides on the market). 40 mg of CeraLOK™ supplies 1.2 mg of glucosyl ceramides and has been shown to improve skin hydration, skin elasticity, skin smoothness, and skin barrier function when consumed orally.
