In the pursuit of timeless beauty and vibrant well-being, the choice of collagen as a pivotal element in our PureHA Collagen Advanced was not arbitrary but rooted in scientific precision and extensive industry knowledge. We understand that when it comes to beauty and wellness, nothing is left to chance. That’s why we’ve harnessed the best bioactive collagen peptides available on the market, peptides that have proven their effectiveness time and again as a captivating secret to achieving radiant beauty and holistic wellness.
why pure ha collagen works?
what is COLLAGEN?
Collagen is the most common protein and most abundant substance in the body second only to water. Collagen keeps skin, hair and nails looking good, working as the cellular glue that helps to hold together all connective tissue in the body.
Collagen is known to be responsible for the tightness, firmness, hydration, elasticity, and renewal of skin cells, while also playing an important role in proper muscle function, cartilage, joints, teeth and bones.
However, by the age of 40, the body’s production of Collagen drops by about 25% and by 60 it is less than 50%. After the age of 30, the performance of fibroblasts, responsible for collagen synthesis, diminishes, a process that accelerates after menopause. This results in thinner dermis, reduced firmness, and elasticity, leading to the formation of wrinkles and sagging. As a result, including Collagen supplements in your daily routine can help to naturally meet personal daily needs.
WHY MARINE COLLAGEN?
Collagen can come from many different sources. Marine collagen is a specific type of collagen derived from ethically farmed fish skins and is primarily composed of Type I collagen. In fact, out of three types of collagen found throughout the human body, Type I is the most plentiful found in skin, bone, teeth, ligaments, and organs. Since marine collagen is also odourless and tasteless, it appears to be an ideal raw material for the development of health supplements.
Bioactive Collagen Peptides
PureHA Collagen Advanced utilises the most effective form of marine collagen – peptides. The process of hydrolysis breaks collagen chains into smaller segments producing bioactive collagen peptides, which can be more easily and effectively absorbed and used by the body. Combined with our pure hyaluronic acid of correct molecular weight, premium-grade hydrolysed marine collagen works at a much lower concentrated dose, avoiding unnecessary overconsumption.
Backed by extensive scientific research, these peptides have demonstrated their ability to enhance skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles, and address cellulite, while supporting hair and nails. They are well-tolerated with no adverse reactions and have a neutral taste. The hydrolysed short peptide length allows for easy digestion and high bioavailability, while being free from fat, cholesterol, carbohydrates, and gluten.
Enhancing Skin Elasticity

69 women aged 35-55
Either 2.5 g or 5.0 g of Bioactive Collagen Peptides (VERISOL®) or a placebo once a day for 8 weeks.
Both groups receiving collagen demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in skin elasticity after just 4 weeks of treatment.
Increase in skin elasticity, with a maximum enhancement of up to 30% at the end of the 8-week treatment period.
The effect was even more pronounced in women aged 50 years and older.
The beneficial effect was still detectable 4-week after the end of treatment.
Reducing Eye Wrinkles and Enhancing Dermal Matrix Components

114 women aged 45-65
Either 2.5 g of Bioactive Collagen Peptides (VERISOL®) or a placebo once a day for 8 weeks.
Observed significant reduction in eye wrinkle volume after just 4 weeks.
The reduction in wrinkle volume became even more pronounced after 8 weeks, with a maximum reduction of 50%.
Results still detectible 4 weeks after the last dose.
These effects were reinforced by the enhancement of pro-collagen type I by 65%, elastin by 18%, and fibrillin by 6% – the vital dermal macromolecules responsible for skin elasticity and wrinkle formation.

105 women between the ages of 24 and 50
Either 2.5 g of Bioactive Collagen Peptides (VERISOL®) or a placebo once a day.
Significant improvements in cellulite, both visually and through the pinch test, with cellulite score reduction after just 3 months of treatment and significant reduction in skin waviness measured through 3D skin surface profile analysis after 6 months of treatment.
The effect was even more pronounced in the normal BMI group, showcasing an 11.1% decrease in thigh skin waviness.
Dermal density was improved compared to the placebo group, as the skin tissue became measurably more compact, reflecting enhanced connective tissue.
The border length between the dermis and subcutis, which correlates with cellulite severity, was also shorter after collagen peptide supplementation, highlighting a reduction in cellulite.
increasing hair thickness and growth

44 women between the ages of 39 and 75
Either 2.5 g of Bioactive Collagen Peptides (VERISOL®) or a placebo once a day for 16 weeks.
Significant improvement in hair thickness and hair growth.
Hair thickness in the collagen group significantly increased by 1.93 μm (p<0.01), while the placebo group experienced a slight decrease.
Collagen had a profound impact on hair follicle cell proliferation, with a statistically significant increase of 31% compared to the control cells.
improving nail growth and strength

Either 2.5 g of Bioactive Collagen Peptides (VERISOL®) or a placebo once a day for 24 weeks.
Significant improvement in nail growth rate and reduction in frequency of broken nails with visibly enhanced appearance.
The bioactive collagen peptides treatment led to a 12% increase in nail growth rate and 42% reduction in the frequency of broken nails.
64% of participants reported a global clinical improvement in their brittle nails, and even after the treatment period 88% of participants experienced ongoing improvements.
