Since we are so worried about skin, the largest organ on our body. Proper care and treatment is essential to maintaining the health and vitality of this crucial protection. Skin is made up of several different parts, including water, protein, lipids (fats), and different minerals and chemicals. Throughout your life, your skin will change, for better or worse. In fact, your skin regenerates itself approximately every 27 days. It’s very important to treat your skin properly to maintain the health and vitality of this crucial organ.
Due to the constant change, it is integral to keep your skincare routine optimal, which is why we formulated a Keratin Gummy.
The skin is composed of three layers. The epidermis is the thinnest layer, but it’s responsible for protecting you from the harsh environment, with 5 layers of its own. The epidermis also hosts different types of cells. Keratinocytes, which produce the protein known as keratin, the main component of the epidermis need to be repleted by the skin’s proteins:
- Collagen: Collagen is the most plentiful protein in the skin, making up 75-80% of your skin. Collagen and elastin are responsible for warding off wrinkles and fine lines. Over time, the environment and aging reduce your body’s ability to produce collagen.
- Elastin: Think elastic. Elastin is found with collagen in the dermis. It’s another protein, responsible for giving structure to your skin and organs. As with collagen, elastin is affected by time and the elements. Lower levels of this protein cause your skin to wrinkle and sag.
- Keratin: Keratin is the main protein in your skin, and makes up hair, nails, and the surface layer of the skin. Keratin is what forms the rigidity of your skin and helps with the barrier protection that your skin offers.
Keratin’s component is directly tied into our beauty regimen. Leaving you with luscious locks, strong nails, and glowing skin. Keratin also helps those with psoriasis and eczema replenish their keratin proteins.
