The Science



Enhancing beauty from within

Having healthy skin inside and out is a growing desire among all consumers (and not just women). Your skin is the primary sign of everyday health but it is also the first indicator of age. As the world population ages, there is growing interest in skin health solutions.

Products known as 'nutricosmetics' – nutritional supplements which support and strengthen the skin's structure with more than just superficial effects – are increasingly in demand.

Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptide Peptan® on Joint and Bone Health

As the population ages, the drawbacks of aging are becoming more apparent. Osteoarthritis and osteopenia, two of the major health concerns, are among the leading causes of pain and disability.

It is now well known that collagen peptides can help to maintain bone and joint health to prevent osteopenia and osteoarthritis.


Collagen Peptides for Joint and Bone Health 

The world health market is pushed by consumer concern over diseases and pulled by consumer fascination with well-being. The population is getting older, and growing old has its drawbacks: two of the major health concerns are osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, which are leading causes of disability. There is growing scientific evidence that Collagen Peptides can promote joint and bone health.

It is now well known that Collagen Peptides may help to maintain bone and joint health to prevent osteopenia (low bone mass) and osteoarthritis. 


According to the World Health Organization (WHO), osteopenia is used to describe individuals who have a low bone mass and some increased risk of fracture. Their bone mass is not so low that they are deemed to have osteoporosis. 



Osteoarthritis is a joint affliction characterized by degenerative lesions of joint cartilage. According to the World Health Organization, after the age of 50, 10% of men and 18% of women suffer from osteoarthritis.

Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptide Peptan® on Nutrition

A High Quality Protein in Weight Management and Sports Nutrition


Overweight Facts

The World Health Organization (2003) estimates that there are more than 1 billion overweight adults, including at least 300 million obese in the world.

In Europe, there are approximately 200 million overweight people. In the USA, the estimate reaches 127 million overweight adults, 60 million of them considered as obese and 9 million severely obese.


A high quality protein for balanced diets

Proteins such as collagen peptides can contribute to a balanced diet and help maintain body weight. Protein enriched diets have demonstrated that they help to maintain body weight, in particular due to their “satieting” effect.
