The effect of oral collagen peptide supplementation on skin moisture and the dermal collagen network: evidence from an model and randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials.
Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology article researchers investigated the effect of collagen peptides taken orally on skin hydration and the dermal collagen network.
An ex vivo experiment was also performed, where human skin explants were used to study extracellular matrix components in the presence of collagen peptides.
The oral supplementation with collagen peptides is efficacious to improve hallmarks of skin aging.
