Description
Description
Hydrolyzed elastin protein obtained from fish skin and carefully monitored during its manufacture to ensure the lowest possible odor and a low ash. Elastin is a highly specialized elastic protein which is found in the connective tissue of the skin and blood vessels. Elastin is also an important load-bearing tissue and used in places where mechanical energy is required to be stored. Contains 10-15% of protein. Specific gravity 1.04. Gluten-free.
Benefits
  • Revitalizes, nourishes and moisturizes the skin and improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Works best in firming/lifting and tightening applications
  • Gives skin and hair a protective layer
  • Rebuilds elastic strength to hair and reduces breakage
