Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins - and the collagen that plumps and firms your skin is protein. Amino acids have a very specific role in skincare because it is literally the scaffolding that holds your skin up and keeps it plump, firm and hydrated from within. Amino acids maintain skin’s texture, skin barrier function, and an overall supple, healthy appearance.
There are nine essential amino acids: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.
The 11 non-essential amino acids, which the body can make on its own, include alanine, arginine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamic acid, glutamine, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine.
Our Miracle Collagen is also Hydrolysed, meaning the amino acid chains are smaller making it very bio-available and easily digested.
