The Science: How do DermaShotz work?
WHAT ARE DERMASHOTZ?
DermaShotz are a unique blend of ingredients proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin hydration and suppleness, and improve the health and strength of hair and nails. DermaShotz are water soluble, for fast absorption, and when mixed with water, make a delicious orange flavoured drink. DermaShotz contain a market-leading 11,000mg of World leading Peptan Marine Collagen; the highest amount found in any single-serve collagen product available* (*correct as at 11/11/2020).

COLLAGEN & YOUR BODY
Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body (making up around 30% of the body’s total protein content). It ensures the integrity, elasticity and strength of our body’s connective tissues and therefore maintains the form and function of our skin, cartilage and bones. Collagen constitutes 75% of the skin’s dry mass content. A key component of the skin’s structure, collagen fibres provide the infrastructure for elastin, which maintains skin elasticity, and for hyaluronic acid to trap moisture.
The human body produces its own collagen, however the rate at which we make collagen declines as we age. This process begins when we are around the age of 25 and accelerates in our late 30s. This leads to the inevitable visual and noticeable signs of ageing, and it is why, as collagen production slows down, our skin develops lines and wrinkles. Collagen loss is a natural process, but this can be addressed by taking collagen as a supplement.
Your skin and hair say a lot about your lifestyle, living environment, nutrition and even the skincare routine that you have. The outermost layer of the skin (epidermis) protects us from ultraviolet (UV) radiation, harmful chemicals, and infections. The dermis is the much thicker second layer of skin. This is where you will find collagen. Collagen fibres in the dermis provide the framework for elastin. Aging takes place here before being visible on the surface. Hair consists of 65-95% protein. With age, hair fibres weaken, making them more breakable and appear less shiny.
