Kollaren Is Novel Peptide For Anti-Aging Skin Care

January 23, 2013

Available from Covalence, Kollaren is a biomimetic peptide derived from a signal peptide. It increases the firmness of the skin by activating the extracellular matrix proteins synthesis such as collagen, elastin, fibronectin and laminin, according to the company. With its tissue repair properties, Kollaren encourages tissue renewal and restores the biomechanical properties of the skin.
Covalence contends that Kollaren is the perfect tool to fight the aging process, and reduce the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles and other manifestation of skin aging.

The company notes that skin aging is influenced by several factors including genetics, UV, mechanical stress, hormonal changes, pollution and metabolic processes (generation of reactive chemical compounds such as activated oxygen species). Taken together, these factors lead to cumulative alterations of appearance, function and skin structure such as modifications in the architecture of the extracellular matrix (ECM).
