New research has shown that collagen peptides can stimulate cells to increase collagen production. The barrier properties of the skin’s outer layer, the epidermis, prevents collagen peptides from topical applications from reaching the deeper dermal layer – that’s why Bend pioneered anti-aging skincare from the inside out. When consumed orally, collagen peptides are absorbed into the bloodstream and reach the dermis where they stimulate the production of collagen as well as hyaluronic acid, both important components of the skin’s collagen matrix.
