Collagen Myths Debunked
When something starts to make the news, including in niches like the skincare industry, it suddenly seems like it’s everywhere. It’s likely that from the moment you heard about collagen, you started to hear everybody’s opinions on it, what it does, and how it does it. But just how much of that is fact, and how much of it is fiction?

What Is Collagen?
Collagen is a protein produced by the body that plays a vital role in the skin’s structure and function. It accounts for 30% of the protein in the body and helps in replacing dead skin cells, growing new skin cells, and giving strength and elasticity to the skin.
Collagen is found naturally in the body and decreases over time. This is one reason why there are so many myths about collagen circulating.
Collagen Uncovered: 3 Myths Debunked
Not everything you read can be taken at face value. At SumaNurica, we’re passionate about skincare and science and where the two intersect, and collagen is something we deal with day in and day out. As a result, we’re intrinsically familiar with some of the common myths surrounding collagen, such as:
- Myth 1: You’re Too Young To Have Collagen Supplements
Wrong! Our natural collagen production begins to decline from our mid-twenties, which is often well before most people begin to think about anti-ageing products. Collagen production hits its peak in early adulthood before declining at around 1% per year from our late teens to mid-twenties onwards. During and after menopause, this decline picks up the pace.
- Myth 2: You Can Only Take Collagen Orally
Incorrect! Many people are aware of collagen supplements, but this isn’t the only way to take in more collagen. Collagen supplements that contain bovine and marine collagen are taken orally; however, the Collagen Essence Hydrating Face Mask is applied topically. SumaNurica’s patented cruelty-free biotechnology formula is homogonous to human skin and 100% hydrophilic, and unlike bovine or marine collagen, contains proteins that can absorb 30 times their weight in water.
- Myth 3: All Collagens Are Created Equal
False! The quality of the collagen you use is key. Cheap collagen supplements, for example, are generally not made to the high standards of quality collagen. Be sure to review the science behind your collagen to ensure it fits in with your expectations and ethics.
