Can Collagen Be Absorbed By The Skin?

By Dr. Valerie Rosenbaum

One of the most consistently amazing things to me is that people still have no idea what the answer is to the question of can collagen be absorbed into the skin. In an age where people can give away 50 billion dollars to someone that they think that they can trust only to find out later that they were victims of a scam it really shouldn’t surprise me as much as it does.

That scenario is really not all that different from what the major cosmetics companies have done to you over the years. They simply run tens of thousands of advertisements every year trying to convince you that they have your best interest in mind when they formulate their products. Then once they have your trust they run laughing all the way to the bank.

Despite what the cosmetics companies have been trying so hard to convince you of over the years the answer to the question of can collagen be absorbed into the skin is that no it cannot. I know that it says right there on the package that it is in a readily absorbable form it is not, because the truth is that this ingredient is simply too dense to make delivery through a topical ointment possible.


This is the grand scheme that the cosmetics companies have played out on all of their loyal customers, and it is still working on many of them. As so many more people have moved past middle age with the rest of the baby boomers sales of collagen based topical products are going through the roof. How is it though that so many continue to buy even though these products have given them no real results?

Now that the question of can collagen be absorbed into the skin has been answered we need to look for an alternative means of bringing your skin back to its youthful luster. The simple solution lies not in trying to add new collagen to your skin through external means, but increasing the amount of collagen that you have through internal measures.

Most people I assume know that the skin is made up entirely of keratin. A company in New Zealand has recently discovered that through the addition to your skin keratin proteins that we do not possess, but that are incredibly similar to our own that they will cause the skin to be able to readily produce new cells within itself. This new cell growth has certain other benefits as well.

The answer to can collagen be absorbed into the skin is no, and so no results will ever come from using these products. The growth of new cells that Functional Keratin gives you however increases the production rate of both the collagen and elastin in your skin tremendously. The products containing Functional Keratin give you all of the results that the other companies promised, but simply can’t deliver.

After you try Functional Keratin products you will never have to ask can collagen be absorbed into the skin, because the answer will be obvious to you. If you could only get back the money that you spent on the products that couldn’t help you.
