In keeping with these trends, Tri-K has launched CollaPlant Z NPNF, a new vegetable-derived collagen replacement. According to Tri-K’s Dr. Mihaela Gorcea, associate director, evaluations & scientific communications, R&D, “CollaPlant Z NPNF was specifically developed to mimic the benefits of collagen, a key element in the fight against aging. This ingredient was designed to have comparable amino acid composition and sensory profile of hydrolyzed animal collagen.”
CollaPlant Z NPNF was developed by Tri-K’s R&D experts and has undergone in-vivo clinical studies and sensory tests that show “immediate and long-term increased skin moisturization, fortification of skin barrier for maximum protection and smoother & more rejuvenated skin.”
CollaPlant Z NPNF is made from sustainable plant sources, is non-GMO, paraben & formaldehyde free. According to Tri-K, this “vegetable collagen” is suitable for use in all types of skin & hair care applications.
Proteins business manager, Shirish Sawale, said, “CollaPlant Z NPNF has been widely received by our beauty care customers driven by vegan consumer trends. I am quite excited at the prospect of offering our industry the vegetable equivalent of animal collagen, which delivers the same efficacy as animal-derived collagen.”
