Face Cream with Collagen | Our Quest for Vegan Options

Whether you're looking for a face cream with collagen, or trying to brush up the latest studies regarding vegan derived collagen, you've come to the right place.

What is Exactly is Collagen? 

Collagen is a protein.  It is the interwoven mesh “frame” that holds our skin together.  Our bodies make collagen, but as we age our ability to do so diminishes significantly.  We naturally start to produce less collagen in our 20’s and it continues on as we age, decade by decade.  When you choose a face cream with collagen, you’re giving your skin the opportunity it needs to invigorate collagen growth for healthier, younger looking skin.

The name collagen comes from the Greek word “glue”.  Collagen was of great interest in the medical community around the 60’s, and it was then that in depth research into this very important ingredient became an important topic.

We can supplement our skin collagen with products that contain collagen, or products that help us create more collagen, we can take supplements with collagen, and we can also consume foods that help regenerate more collagen which in turn helps our skin.

Most dietary products that contain collagen are animal derived, but since about 2019, we discovered ways to derive plant based collagen from sources like beans, seeds, and nuts.  (Our products contain a vegan derived collagen builder that is proven to be just as effective in medical studies as animal derived collagen.)

Medical studies show that plant derived collagen is just as effective in helping skin as animal derived collagen.

To expand on that, we now know that collagen can be derived from yeast and bacteria, as opposed to animal sources.  This is a big breakthrough for those looking for vegan products.  It was just a couple of years ago, that this new plant based option came about. 

Not only can you have vegan based collagen, but you can also pair it with ingredients that are clinically shown to produce more collagen in your body. 

Let’s go over some of those ingredients.

What are Ways to Stimulate Your Own Collagen?

Foods.  There are a lot of foods that invigorate your own collagen production – like swiss chard, kale, beans, cashews, tomatoes and bell peppers. 

Retinol.  Plant derived retinol is one of our favorite ingredients, and for such good reason.  Not only does it encourage the growth of new cells but fights the signs of aging.  We can consume retinol rich foods like mango, papaya, squash, and sweet potato to reap those benefits.

Vitamin C.  Vitamin C is proven to help encourage collagen growth in the skin, and there are some great skin care ingredients that are high in vitamin c, like cranberry, bilberry, lemon and orange – all of which we’ve included in our collagen producing anti-wrinkle cream.

Our wrinkle cream contains not only vegan collagen, but also retinol and several vitamin c rich ingredients:
