Spotlight on Holimel®

I am often asked what sets our collagen blend apart from others. It's a VERY good question as there is plenty of competition out there! 

Three years ago, during the research and development phase, I was looking to add something that would address net collagen stores by optimising the balance between collagen production and collagen breakdown. 

Many studies have shown that taking a collagen supplement regularly and in the right dose will help to improve collagen production. So - tick! - we selected the world's leading marine collagen peptides from Peptan: high bioavailability and solubility, and strong on sustainability.

But what about the fact that our collagen stores are also - slowly but surely - breaking down, particularly from exposure to UV light (AKA the sun)? Apart from natural ageing, exposure to UV light is the leading cause of collagen breakdown in the skin; so I wanted to find something special that would address this major collagen “leak”.

This is where Holimel® dried French melon juice concentrate fits in. Holimel® is a patented melon juice concentrate from a unique variety of Cantaloupe melon farmed around Montpelier in the South of France. Holimel® contains a high source of natural Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), one of the most effective antioxidants available today.

Holimel® works by supporting the skin's natural antioxidant defences, preventing oxidative stress and inflammation caused by UV exposure. It increases skin resistance to UV, increases the body’s own antioxidant enzymes, and reduces UV-related skin damage*. 

We are very proud to include this incredible ingredient in our blend, providing dual action, full spectrum collagen support, to keep your skin looking its best.
