Collagen being a large protein, does not penetrate skin topically. Therefore, it cannot produced collagen in skin. Collagen production requires vitamin c (an essential coenzyme) to boost collagen synthesis. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

They are known to breakdown collagen fibers from inflammation. Inflammation has a variety of stimulates: The use of facials brushes, harsh scrubs, UV sunlight, smoke, stress, excess sugar in diet, etc. These pack-man’s are not discriminating, as soon as inflammation is triggered, they go to work. Beginning at the age of 30 they naturally degrade collagen without any inflammatory response. Fun! Right? Retinol is a β€˜pack-man’ inhibitor. It stimulates the production of collagen by inhibiting the production of these MMP enzymes. ⁣⁣ ⁣
