What is collagen? 

Our skin produces collagen naturally. It represents 77% of our dermis proteins, which helps skin look strong and keep its structure intact to remain firm. As we age, skin’s collagen production starts to slow down, exacerbated by urban stressors such as UV rays, pollution, stress, cigarettes or unhealthy eating habits that accelerate collagen breakdown. As a result, skin loses firmness and suppleness. Plus, wrinkles form when collagen and elastin production slow down. As a result, the skin becomes thinner and has a harder time retaining moisture, which leads to saggy skin and wrinkles. By the time we reach our 30s the production of collagen naturally slows down and we start to lose 1% of collagen per year. While a loss of firmness is inevitable, that doesn’t mean fine lines, wrinkles, and saggy skinkare completely beyond your control.

While it is impossible to turn back the hands of time, the good news is that it is not too late to restart your biological collagen clock.

The power of Bioscience 

When it comes to collagen loss, Biotherm has once again leveraged science to support nature by capitalizing on the healing power of aquatic plants to transform them into key actives that help to prevent the visible signs of collagen loss on the skin including sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Thanks to an expertise in biotechnology and bioscience, Biotherm has created a new category of actives that are more natural, sustainable, potent and safe. Blue Therapy’s power comes from its active ingredients combined with Biotherm’s bioscience expertise in leveraging science to support these natural ingredients.

Uplifting ingredients 

Red Algae, aka hydrolyzed Rhodophyceae extract, is one of the most powerful algae on earth growing along the rocky parts of the Atlantic coasts from Europe to North America, it is capable of transforming and restructuring itself eternally when challenged by a harsh environment. It deploys itself when living conditions are optimal, and curls over when they are aggressive. Incredibly elastic, yet resilient, it preserves its youthful, unharmed shape day by day, year by year. Biotherm biologists captured its extraordinary uplifting power for skin. Thanks to its components similar to skin’s dermal matrix, it reshapes your facial contours and smoothing your wrinkles.

To create Biotherm’s new ingredient collagen peptide fraction, these bioscientists combined two peptide fragments to stimulate collagen synthesis to preserve fibers and skin structure. Together, these two powerful ingredients help skin to retain elasticity and help skin to recover its firmness and radiance. The healing power of Life Plankton™ probiotic fraction also combines with these ingredients to heal, renew and protect the skin.
