Shiseido The Collagen now in the Philippines! What is it? What does it do? Is it safe? How much? All these answered after the jump!


Let me start by explaining the importance of collagen in the skin.

What is Collagen?

Collagen is a protein present in the body’s organs and tissues. It sustains the body’s structure and holds up the top layer of the skin. It is what makes the skin firm, plump, and youthful.

As we get older, the body produces less and less collagen resulting to wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin. This is why we need supplements to increase collagen production – through skin care, food, or collagen capsules and drink!

During the launch of Shiseido The Collagen at Makati Shangri-la, Dra. Anna Palabyab-Rufino discussed how collagen drink and capsules are more easily absorbed by the body. Shiseido The Collagen has unique patented beauty ingredients, which includes Lingonberry and Amla.

Lingonberries contain plant chemical called polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants. This natural ingredients help neutralize the effects of the sun’s radiation. Other effects are it maintains normal functions of skin cells, and iingon sterols. Sterols—reduce redness and skin sensitivity, promote tissue regeneration, and have anti-inflammatory properties. Lingonberry seed oil extract has demonstrably beneficial properties that promote a healthy, moist, glowing skin.

On the other hand, Amla, Indian gooseberry is particularly known for its good effects on hair and skin. Other benefits are: lightens complexion, anti-aging effects, exfoliating and cleansing agent, reduces pigmentation, skin brightener, treats acne and pimples, skin toner and tightener, and repairs damaged tissues.

Other supporting ingredients: low molecular weight fish collagen, hyaluronic acid, ceramide, GABA, ornithine, moisture peptide, Vitamin C, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E, and Royal Jelly.
