    Collagen solution to better skin

    NATURALLY occurring collagen is made up of amino acids and is found in the human body.

    Collagen may improve skin complexion by reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, and firming the skin around the eyes.

    For skin-conscious consumers, Gokujo Lab offers concentrated collagen in a spherical cotton-like form called collagen balls, which are produced in Japan.

    They come in airtight containers to preserve their freshness.

    These collagen balls are made purely of collagen, without any preservatives or water products added.

    Collagen is naturally weak against heat and will turn into gelatin. When kept at temperatures over 40 deg C, the collagen will lose its properties that may make skin look better, so storing the collagen balls in a cool environment is important.

    Gokujo Lab also has a solution called the Tiny White Drop. It contains seven nutrients, including vitamins E and F, as well as antioxidants. It inhibits enzymatic activity to help the skin absorb the goodness of the collagen balls.

    For best results when using the collagen balls, place one on your palm, which should be dry, and add the Tiny White Drop solution.

    Using a finger, mix the collagen ball and solution in a circular motion, and it should melt into a gel-like liquid. It can then be applied onto the face.

    Ju Ann, a blogger at Ngjuann.com, said: "This is the first time I am applying a 100 per cent collagen product on my face and the effect is pretty amazing."

    Gokujo Lab's range of treatments include skincare and haircare products, and are available at 42 outlets islandwide.
