Sales for anti-aging products in the US is poised to grow 26% over the next four years. Collagen-synthesizing ingredients lead in capturing this consumer market. This webinar reviews the anti-aging market and two human clinical studies on collagen-synthesizing peptides. The findings show efficacy from collagen peptide supplementation for increasing skin hydration, elasticity, and collagen fibril synthesis, as well as improving joint & bone health. Some interesting product concepts and novel uses of collagen peptides are reviewed, as well as a comparison of type I and type II collagen.
Christelle Bonnet, technical director at Weishardt, followed classes in the French education system with a Masters degree in Food Science Engineering from Polytech Montpellier/ISIM and a PhD in Nutrition and Biotechnology from the University of Pharmacy (CIRAD/UAG). After receiving her master's degree, Christelle worked for over 5 years in the food industry as a R&D manager. Christelle formulated fruit preparations with added value such as polyphenols, carotenoids, Ca2+, vitamins, and other supplementation for dairy products. As she wanted to learn more about how active compounds from a vegetable matrix may add functionality to foods, she embarked on a PhD researching the effects of polyphenols (dopamine, leucocyanidine, etc) and phystosterols (sitoindosides) from Musa cavendish on cardiovascular and anti-ulcerogenic activity. The French Research Ministry awarded Christelle an Innovation Prize for her work in this area. Two years ago, Christelle joined Weishardt in order to support scientific and technical development of Naticol fish collagen peptides and has completed several research papers and clinical studies on this product during that time.
