Collagen is a protein found throughout the body. It is the main component of connective tissue and is the most abundant protein found in animals.
28 types of collagens have been identified. Collagen type 1 is the most abundant in our bodies – making up about 90% of our total collagen (and it is also the most abundant collagen type in our skin).
Collagen is responsible for skin elasticity and stretchiness. It can be found in and is the building block of the dermis layer (the middle layer of our skin).
As we age, collagen becomes thinner and looser, causing skin to sag and wrinkles to appear. We also produce less collagen as we age (from around the mid-20s). Stress can also impact collagen and elastin in skin.
VanilleActive2™ is a highly refined lipid fraction and is rich in bio-actives. It has been clinically shown to help stimulate the production of collagen type 1.

Some Trilogy products contain wheat germ oil, sodium hyaluronate, cetearyl wheat straw glycosides and cetearyl alcohol (derived from wheat), nut oils and soy oil. The extraction methods for these ingredients remove allergy-causing proteins; however we cannot guarantee that all traces have been eliminated. Therefore, if you have a gluten intolerance or a wheat, nut or soy allergy, we recommend that you patch test first or consult your medical practitioner before using any new skincare product.
