What is collagen and why do we need it?

All questions answered!

Learning about your skin and what does it need is a must. In a world where millions of products are getting sold under the name of “skincare”. You should know exactly what does your skin need and what it doesn’t. in this article, we will be talking about Collagen, and it’s something that your skin definitely needs!



So, what is collagen?

“this product boosts the collagen production in your body” or “this product has the collagen that your skin requires to get its elasticity back”. Are these sentences enough to make us buy the product? And why they are mentioning collagen again and again?

In a simple way, collagen is the glue of the body! Shocking, right? Collagen comes from the Greek word “kòlla” which means glue, and the Frensh word géne, which means “something that produces”. So, when we put the two words to “kòlla” and “géne” we get the word Collagen, which is basically, a “glue” producing protein.

We find collagen in the extracellular matrix, which supports the cell in every tissue of the body.

Without collagen, the skin would be dry and thin, nails would be brittle, muscles wouldn’t grow and bones would be fragile.
