British scientists release statement: Buy collagen anti-wrinkle cream is equivalent to burning money
In a large number of cosmetics advertisements, collagen anti-wrinkle cream is called “the nemesis of years”, which can smooth wrinkles, restore skin firmness and rejuvenate youthful radiance.
But a recent statement from British scientists has made it clear that using expensive collagen anti-wrinkle creams is simply burning money.
The statement was issued by British charity “Science Induction”.
Scientists play a role in the statement, the collagen molecules in those expensive cosmetics are so large they can hardly penetrate the skin.
It is usually nothing more than a uniform and then washed off with water.
In other words, consumers’ estimates are that the money spent will have no effect at all.
Richard Guy, a professor at the School of Pharmacy at the University of Bath, said that many cosmetic brands claim that the collagen in their products can penetrate the skin and supplement and strengthen the natural collagen in our skin. “This theory is definitely ridiculous.”.
Oxford University student chemist Dr. Blanca Sengrowa said that skin protein is structurally important to our skin, but its molecules are too large, so there is an obstacle to penetrating the skin.
Professor Jonathan Hardgraft of the University of London School of Pharmacy also said that according to popular saying, 60% of collagen cream ingredients can be absorbed through the skin, but the fact is, “most of them can only stay on the skin surface”.
