Hydrolyzed for superior absorption - so you get all of that skin boosting goodness.
Collagen is the 'glue', which helps our skin, hair, joints and even our digestive system function.
However, collagen production starts to slow significantly from the age of 20, and by age 40 we have lost 30% of our collagen. Loss of collagen contributes to the signs of ageing.
Supplementing with collagen early is key to reducing fine lines and maintaining our tissue health from the inside!
Did you know that by the age of 40, we have lost 30% of our collagen?
Fibroblast cells are responsible for producing collagen naturally in our body.
Collagen is also required for the replacement and restoration of dead skin and tissue cells within the body, and is a key component of our skin, hair, nails, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels.
However these cells decrease as we age, leading to wrinkles, fine lines and joint pain. as we get older.
It is important we compensate for these lower collagen levels in our body as we age.
Your skin is composed of 80% Type 1 collagen, which is the most important and only type of collagen we use in our capsules.
Furthermore, the collagen found in our capsules is Type 1 Hydrolysed, which means it is more easily absorbed and transported to the dermis of the skin!
The study: A panel of 52 healthy volunteers with normal skin, aged between 20 and 60 years old, orally took this type 1 collagen every day for four weeks. Over the course of the study, they answered a series of questions, which included state of the skin and state of the joints during and at the end of the study.
The results: Consumers reported improvements in wrinkles and overall skin appearance (skin firmness, hydration, skin radiance and brightness) after two weeks. The study suggests that oral daily intake of 10g of this type 1 collagen can counteract skin ageing and benefit skin health.
Consumer reported improvements in wrinkles skin appearance after 2 weeks of daily oral intake.
Consumers also reported a positive impact on their joints after four weeks, with a noticeable decrease in joint pain.
Consumers reported a decrease in joint pain after 4 weeks of daily oral intake.
The study: Forty healthy volunteers aged between 54 and 63 were split into two groups of 20. One group took an oral dose of this type 1 collagen before breakfast for 12 weeks. The other group took a placebo. Researchers then performed analysis via a number of methods:
- A cutometer, which uses a suction method to depress the skin then record the time and quality of its ability to return to normal, was used to measure skin elasticity.
- A corneometer, which measures the moisture levels in the outer dermal layers, was used to measure skin hydration.
- Skin images were analysed using dedicated computer software to perform 3D analysis of wrinkles.
Subjects were also surveyed for their response to the question, "Would you say that the treatment you underwent has reduced the wrinkles on your face?". Investigators and subjects separately answered the question, "Would you say that the treatment you underwent is globally effective in reducing signs of ageing in the face."
At the end of the study, lines around the eye (crow’s feet) indicated a significant smoothing in the overlap of the skin and a significant reduction in skin wrinkling. No effect was observed in the placebo group.
The clinical score of wrinkles, assessed by the Investigator, decreased significantly between week 6 and week 12. The clinical score remained unchanged for the placebo group.
Results show a significant (-9.37%) reduction in skin wrinkles after 12 weeks.
Skin hydration also showed significant improvements in the type 1 collagen group, with hydration levels increased by 22.8% from day one of the study.
Skin elasticity showed major improvements at both week 6 and week 12, with a +27.2% increase in hydration by week 12.
Results show a significant (+22.8%) improvement in skin hydration after 6 & 12 weeks.
Results show a significant (+27.2%) increase in skin elasticity at 12 weeks
Haven’t taking vitamins before but getting older is a mega leveller for thinking more about your health. Loved the website, loved the natural ingredients and abundance of things in each products. It was lovely to get the follow up email too. I feel good and have noticed subtle differences with energy levels and better hair condition. So I’m really chuffed so far . Plus for the first time in my 54 years I’m going to do a 10k run so all those vital ingredients must be working. Thanks guys will defo be re ordering !
I’ve been using these tablets for a few months now and have really seen a difference in my skin! It’s so soft and my hair is very shiny. I’ve also noticed that my eyes seem brighter too! Weird but true. I’m definitely a fan of these,
Didn't realise how much my skin had improved until I had a photo shot for my sixth birthday. Glowing.
One month on, the hair that i was loosing due to menopause at the front of my forehead has almost grown back!! Fantastic. As for my skin, I'm a water drinker anyway so fairly hydrated, but the elasticity has improved massively, my jowls that have just started to appear I can't see now, and I have a lovely glow. The best purchase, highly recommend any peri menopause and menopausal ladies. I'm 53. No filters on the photo.

Collagen is one of the body’s essential building blocks. It is a protein that is naturally produced and replenished in our bodies, accounting for nearly 75% of all the protein in our bodies found primarily in dermal tissue.
Unfortunately, collagen production starts declining as we get older from around the age of 25-30. Our bodies continue to make less collagen every year, and this can contribute to the signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin, joint pain, and a slower dermal metabolism. So it’s important that you supplement that loss in your body to counteract the physical effects of aging and encourage the natural production of collagen.
The Collagen blend in our HydroPro+ Capsules provides the nourishment that keeps your skin, hair, and nails vibrant, smooth and healthy! Our formula also promotes joint & cartilage health.
A survey among 954 customers using The Pretty Smart Food Co® Collagen measured changes in wrinkles, pore size, age spots, and skin texture over the course of the study. The changes in skin appearance came more quickly than expected, with results coming in weeks, not months, and getting better over time. Here’s a brief overview of the amazing results:
In just 3 weeks 44% of participants showed improved skin texture, and at 8 weeks, 83% showed improved skin texture.
In just 4 weeks 65% of participants showed a significant reduction in wrinkles and fine lines, decreased age spots, and improvements in the overall look of their facial skin - with a brighter appearance.
