Natural Collagen Q5-16

Is a Solution for:
Sagging Skin
February 28, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 1 Comment
I took a look at Natural Collagen Q5-26 because someone called George, who I presume works for the company's marketing department, posted a not very subtle press release (see comments). Trying not to hold that against him, I took a look and, because I could only find a full ingredients list for one product, will herewith give you my verdict of Natural Collagen's Regenerating Night Cream.

The collagen, which is one of the active ingredients, comes from what the Polish manufacturer rather quaintly calls the "noblest" fish. This turns out to be the skin of the Balkan Carp. Apart from collagen and elastin, Regenerating Cream contains matrixyl 3000 (believed to be a powerful anti-oxidant) and some plant extracts. Overall, it looks pretty good.

The only thing I don't like about it is the use of a couple of preservatives that are known irritants (DMDM hydantoin and idopropynyl butylcarbomate) and the hugely ironic use of parabens, which the EPA says may be harming marine life. Now where did that collagen come from again....

    <p>Thank you for your comments. I would like to inform you that all the Natural Collagen products are Parabens Free which were replaced by Caprylyl Glycol: It is a liquid preservative formulation which consists of phenoxyethanol and an emollient base. Protects against antimicrobial growth from bacteria and yeast while giving the finished product exceptional feel. Sorry for not been quick enough to update information on the website.</p>

    <p>Thanks again<br />
