CollagenClayton Shagal’s 99% pure non-hydrolyzed acidosoluble native marine collagen
In 1982, Clayton Shagal’s research team discovered a unique extraction method that provides the skin with macromolecular collagen proteins. The single collagen product that started it all was the purest form of collagen ever extracted commercially, which required no injections to penetrate the deep layers of the skin. It was finally possible to cutaneously introduce macromolecules of collagen into the skin to regenerate human tissue. To this day, Clayton Shagal’s collagen remains unsurpassed in purity and uniqueness.
Beautiful skin begins with collagen
Collagen is the most essential of proteins because it helps make the skin resilient and strong.
The essential element
Collagen is a major structural protein in the skin, mostly located in the connective tissues (dermis). This makes it easy to understand collagen’s significant role in hydrating both the dermis in particular and the skin in general. It is responsible for the overall health, elasticity, plumpness, and smoothness of the skin. In short, collagen is the key to youthful, healthy, glowing skin.
The passage of time
As we age, the skin loses its resilience and elasticity, mostly due to the natural slowdown in collagen production. Although the production of collagen fibrils deteriorates with time, our collagen itself is never lost. However, age is instrumental to the decrease in natural nourishment caused by the slower production of fibrils. As the connective tissues no longer receive adequate nourishment from the fibrils, their ability to retain moisture declines, and, over time, they slowly become thinner and dry out. The weakened collagen structures lead to the appearance of wrinkles, loss of plumpness, increased skin laxity and changing skin textures.
What makes Clayton Shagal’s collagen different
Collagen can only be described as “native” if it has retained its complete, undamaged structure after extraction, meaning that it has the same structure as it did in the skin. Native soluble collagen is qualitatively the most valuable and natural form of this kind of active ingredient.
Only non-hydrolyzed acidosoluble collagen with an unaltered structure can be absorbed into the skin and initiate the production of new collagen fibrils, thus resulting in greater cutaneous elasticity.
Most people do not realize that, even today, extracting a genuine collagen macromolecule requires a heavy dose of patience, as the process takes approximately 90 days due to its fragile and complex composition. Nonetheless, many competitors seem to ignore these crucial factors and consistently produce collagen products that are ready for the market in just a few days. The extraction process must be very strict and carried out slowly and accurately in order to fully respect the integrity of this ingredient and maintain reliable efficiency standards. It’s the only way to obtain real, long-lasting, in-depth moisturizing results.
Our injection-free transfer method
La Maison Clayton Shagal’s exclusive 99% pure collagen is made up of new collagen fibrils and the nutrients needed to lock in moisture by penetrating to the dermis level of the skin without injections.
Collagen is insoluble in oil and fat substances. At Clayton Shagal’s laboratory, the solution was the formulation of non-hydrolyzed acidosoluble collagen which is compatible with human skin, developed in gel and extract form. This formulation effectively penetrates the natural protective barriers of the skin and lets the absorbed collagen fibrils work deep into the connective tissues (dermis). This replenishes the skin’s dwindling supply of much-needed collagen fibrils in the dermis, which are essential to the skin’s health.
Skin treated with Clayton Shagal’s high-performance native marine collagen can retain more moisture in the dermal layers, thereby increasing the volume of existing collagen for stronger, firmer and healthier skin.
Clayton Shagal’s collagen supplies the skin with soluble collagen to improve its cutaneous elasticity, which makes the surface structure of the skin distinctively smoother. It increases cutaneous moisturization and improves turgor. As a result, Clayton Shagal’s collagen restores skin vitality and keeps your skin healthy and beautiful.
