Title: Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides for Skin Care
  • Article
BioCell Technology (Newport Beach, Calif., USA) has launched a topical grade version of its oral dietary nutraceutical ingredient BioCell Collagen II. BioCell Collagen II Cosmetic Grade (CG) provides hydrolyzed collagen peptides, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid in a phospholipid matrix. According to the company, phospholipids aid the emulsification compatibility of BioCell Collagen II CG in various topical formulations and simultaneously reduces transepidermal water loss, thus imparting a moisturizing effect.

The company has found the ingredient to improve the skin feel of topical formulations. The ingredient is compatible in both water and lipid phase formulations. For more information, visit BioCell Technology's Web site.
