The Diamond Collagen formula is based on a breakthrough discovery by Polish biochemists working with COLWAY, involving the isolation of a fraction of collagen peptides weighing less than 500 Da (daltons), called IOC Transdermal Collagen Peptides® from the native form of fish collagen.
They have been stabilised to remain stable in form, composition and properties under thermal conditions corresponding to the body’s physiology. The composition of Diamond Collagen contains as many as 151 stable, smallest collagen peptides ever known, making our cosmetic unique on a global scale. According to the “500 Da Rule”, only such peptides can freely penetrate the stratum corneum – impermeable to particles of greater mass. This allows the IOC peptides to penetrate the deep layers of the dermis – down to the level with fibroblasts and consequently stimulate these cells to synthesise collagen and elastin, and also – hyaluronic acid, which is present in the skin in the form of sodium hyaluronate. The addition of collagen in the form of trihelis enriches the amino acid pool of the cosmetic and guarantees the skin a lifting effect immediately after application.
To support good skin hydration and the action of the peptide-collagen fraction, the Diamond Collagen formula is enriched with sodium hyaluronate. The short list of ingredients is rounded off by components that maintain the correct pH of the product and the stability of the IOC Transdermal Collagen Peptides®.
