Collagen & Elastin

Mervue Organic promotes natural radiance no matter what your age. As we age the levels of collagen and elastin diminish in our skin and these are what keep your skin looking firmer and younger in terms of skin structure.
Collagen and elastin are proteins in our connective tissue found in the dermis - the second layer of our skin.
Collagen makes up approximately 80% of the protein of our skin and gives structure to our skin, hair, nails and bones. It also allows us to be flexible and supple while providing our skin with strength and firmness. Fibroblasts are the cells found in the dermis - they synthesise collagen and elastin that support our skin.
Elastin is a stretchy protein that helps keep your skin elastic, pliable and firm, allowing our skin to stretch and expand and bounce back into shape, helping skin to remain tight.
