"Fushi Vegan Collagen builder has been formulated to contain the amino acid building blocks found in animal sources of collagen, but from a vegan source. With ageing and the action of the UV light on skin, collagen levels decline. Collagen provides the structure and smoothness of younger skin, and as we age our ability to rebuild collagen at the same rate is reduced. The Vitamin C found in Fushi Vegan Collagen builder comes from Acerola berries. Vitamin C can contribute to normal collagen formation, and amino acids like glycine, alanine, proline and hydroxyproline are used to build collagen in our skin. Key micronutrients and botanical extracts are included as they have an important in maintaining healthy skin."
