Ingredient With Novel Mechanism of Action; Anti-aging Properties Available
Posted: December 4, 2012
BioCell Technology's BioCell Collagen® CG, a patented ingredient that offers a new mechanism of action for better hydration and reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and lines, won the prestigious Frost & Sullivan Award based upon its technological innovation and multifaceted nature, including its unique set of molecular and biochemical properties.
The Frost & Sullivan report found BioCell Technology had developed one of the most novel products in the collagen peptide category with BioCell Collagen® CG. It also recognized it was BioCell Technology’s extended expertise in collagen peptides that led the company to introduce this innovative solution for the personal care industry. BioCell Collagen® CG, the report found, is a multifaceted, customizable cosmetic ingredient that combats a variety of skin-related issues associated with both natural and photo-aging.
BioCell Collagen® CG is a patented, naturally occurring matrix of hydrolyzed collagen peptides and aggrecan-containing glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) such as chondroitin sulfate (CS) and hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen, CS and HA are essential structural components in the dermis and are responsible for the skin's moisture, suppleness and elasticity—and thus, beauty. These molecules degrade as we age, contributing to the disarray or collapse of the dermal matrix structure, resulting in dermal dehydration and an eventual aged skin appearance—including fine lines, wrinkles and superficial sagging.
BioCell Collagen® CG’s synergy between biologically active collagen peptides and low molecular weight HA, together with the inhibition of hyaluronidase (an HA-degrading enzyme), offers a unique mechanism for skin beauty and clearly differentiates this cosmetic ingredient in a crowded market. The patented technology and robust science behind the product are the prime factors that have made BioCell Collagen® CG one of a kind, and easy customization into a diverse range of personal care products, strategic alliances with strong distributors around the globe, and highly scalable and sustainable supply further substantiates BioCell Collagen® CG’s remarkable potential in the market.
