As the most prominent protein in the human body, Collagen is undisputedly a powerful component in your body’s cell development. Collagen is the so-called ‘glue’ that provides structure to the body’s bones, skin, ligaments and muscles. Making up around 75% of the dry weight of your skin, the protein is abundant in amino acids, proline and glycine; essential nutrients to repair and restore muscles and tendons. The molecules within are compounded together forming long fibrils which in turn, support cell structures and give us that elasticity and firmness recognised and desired in youthful skin.
As we age, we naturally start to produce less collagen, usually from the early to mid 20s onwards, in turn affecting the elasticity and suppleness of our skin. With a direct correlation to the skin's appearance, it becomes apparent how important it is to adequately and effectively combat this natural loss by stimulating the body’s own production of collagen.
Enter: Skin W1® .
When Dr. Malik sought after retail products with a high enough percentage of key active ingredients to recreate her in-clinic results, she was surprised to discover that they didn’t exist. She created the Skin W1® product range out of a desire to make these ingredients as well as her approach accessible to a wider audience. Dr. Malik chose to work with a patented complex of Methylglucoside phosphate and Copper Lysinate/Prolinate, the key active ingredients which she had used extensively in her clinic for many years with great results.
These active ingredients work to induce the synthesis of key proteins in the dermis involved in the maintenance of collagen type I, collagen type III, tropoelastin and elastin. The Skin W1® range works to combat the deterioration of our skin’s structure with age, stimulating protein synthesis with energy provided from these active ingredients. Working together on a molecular level, these products are a great foundation for supporting your collagen production and overall skin health.
