BioCell publishes study demonstrating anti-aging advantages of collagen supplement


BioCell Technology has published the first human skin study demonstrating the efficacy of its orally ingested BioCell Collagen in improving the visible signs of skin aging.

Published in the Journal of Clinical Interventions in Aging, the study enrolled 26 women between the ages of 35 to 59, who took the supplement daily for 12 weeks, and resulted in the majority experiencing improvement in skin texture, hydration, reduced scaling, and improved blood microcirculation.

The global ‘beauty from within’ category, also known as nutricosmetics, is currently estimated to be $2 billion and is rapidly expanding to projections as high as $4 billion by 2015, with growth fueled by aging baby boomers and increased consumer awareness regarding incorporating nutricosmetics into the daily skincare regimen.

“We see great business opportunities in these markets as our potential client companies and formulators look for a strongly substantiated ingredient like BioCell Collagen,” said Suhail Ishaq, president of BioCell Technology.
