Before 25 years old, our skin is made up of 80 per cent collagen. After 25 years old, we loose one percent per year.

Collagen is a protein produced by our cells that helps to hold the skin together. Our skin gets firmness and elasticity due to collogen. Skin is also the body’s largest and fastest growing organ.
