ENG Collagen peptide Skin surface and cellulite 1

Improving the surface texture of the skin

Cellulite (the appearance of orange skin) affects approximately 85% of the adult female population worldwide. Cellulite is an aspect of beauty, not a disease, but many women suffer from this beauty flaw. Cellulite is mainly caused by disturbances in the skin matrix, combined with excess subcutaneous fat, bulging into the dermis (joints) and also excess interstitial fluid.*

Startes® – Beauty and Youthfulness dietary supplement has beneficial effects on the dermal extracellular matrix of the skin (intercellular matrix) and may help to reduce cellulite. Unlike current anti-cellulite dietary supplements, which primarily address aspects of adiposity or microcirculation, the collagen peptides used in Startes® – Beauty and Youthfulness products directly stimulate the formation of the skin’s extracellular matrix.

*Interstitial fluid or tissue fluid is a fluid that permeates all tissues and fills the space between cells.
