The benefits of collagen abound and I've written about them extensively. What I want to do here, today, is talk to you about the benefits of our collagen—Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen, specifically, and hydrolyzed collagen powder in general.
In case you missed it, one of our customers (Amanda) did a pretty rave review of her success using Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen Powder, citing all the ways in which our product improved her hair growth, nail strength and skin elasticity.

The Beauty Benefits of Collagen Powder
While not marketed as a beauty product, the truth is that high quality collagen powder is one of the most amazing products you can use to keep you looking and feeling your best.
Made from 100% grass-fed bovine and free of chemicals and GMOs, our Perfect Collagen is as pure as it gets and can boost your body's levels of this important structural protein.
Collagen is the most plentiful protein in mammals and makes up 25% to 35% of our bodily protein. It keeps your joints, ligaments and skin supple, your hair strong and longer and your nails tough. 💅🏼👊🏼
As we age, however, our collagen levels naturally decrease. Lifestyle factors like smoking, drinking any kind of alcohol, not getting enough sleep, being exposed to environmental pollutants and excessive sunlight and stress can also deplete collagen stores.
How to Boost Collagen
There are natural ways to boost collagen stores, like eating foods that are rich in vitamin C and amino acids (like berries, green vegetables, red peppers and oranges), exercising regularly, sleeping well and practicing regular mental and emotional self care.
And, of course, there is using a collagen powder—an incredibly effective way to replenish your levels of this protein.
Our Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen can:
- Grow your eyebrows and hair
- Strengthen your nails
- Improve the elasticity and hydration of your skin
All you have to do is use it, and use it regularly. High quality hydrolyzed collagen supplements, which are easiest to absorb (such as the Perfect brand), have been shown to promote more supple and strong bodies, inside out.
It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to choose a collagen powder that has a low molecular weight as this will determine it's bioavailability (how its absorbed and utilised by the body).
Perfect Hydrolyzed collagen powder has one of the lowest molecular weights (if not the lowest) of the collagen powders available on the market today. This is measured in daltons. Perfect Hydrolyzed collagen is a mere 3,000 daltons, compared with most others that are around 30,000-100,000.
In addition to the obvious beauty benefits, collagen supplementation can also support better gut and heart health, while helping you build and maintain more lean muscle mass. All it takes is 1-2 scoops* of powder a day.
*2 is recommended for best results!
Collagen powder is easy to incorporate into your diet. Just stir it into your coffee, mix it into soups or baked goods or dump a scoop in smoothies. Our collagen powder is virtually odourless and tasteless too, so you won’t even notice this healthy addition to your day-to-day life.
Collagen powder is one of the safest supplements out there (though you should always talk to your doctor about using any supplements). However, if you've been looking for an easy, effective and affordable way to look and feel incredible without having to drop a small fortune on fancy face creams, try our Perfect Collagen.
After all, real beauty starts from within.
