Your Questions About Ecollagen Answered

Want to know more about our high-performing anti-ageing range Ecollagen? Then check out this FAQ answered by our Senior Director of Science of Innovation, Dr Alain Mavon.

1. WHAT MAKES THE ECOLLAGEN SKIN CARE RANGE SO UNIQUE?
The patented technology behind Ecollagen and the proven clinical results make this range really unique. It’s built around a combination of an Oriflame patented technology and a plant stem cell extract that together target and fight wrinkles.

2. WHAT IS TRI-PEPTIDE TECHNOLOGY AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
This patented technology is a combination of three peptides. It actively inhibits collagen degradation and thus fights wrinkle formation.

3. WHAT IS SOLANACEAE PLANT STEM CELL EXTRACT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Plant stem cells are the immortal source of all plant cells. Using the latest advances in biotechnology, we study the stem cells of thousands of plants to identify those with anti-ageing properties, and then isolate the compounds that deliver the most potent effect. This is plant stem cell extract.

Solanaceae Plant Stem Cell extract boosts the synthesis of new collagen by 200%, in vitro. It re-plumps the skin from within, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

4. IS THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND ECOLLAGEN EXCLUSIVE TO ORIFLAME?
Yes, as the Tri-Peptide Technology is an Oriflame patent. No one else has that technology.

5. WHAT CAUSES WRINKLES?
The skin is a very dynamic organ. In young skin we have a controlled and balanced production of new collagen and degradation of old collagen. As we age, it becomes unbalanced and collagen production slows while existing levels degrade. The result is a deficit of collagen, which turns into visible wrinkles. Excessive sun exposure and smoking increases wrinkle formation further.

6. IS IT POSSIBLE TO REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF WRINKLES?
Yes, by avoiding excessive sun exposure and following a moisturising daily skin care routine.

7. HOW DO I KNOW IF ECOLLAGEN IS RIGHT FOR MY SKIN?
If fine lines become more and more prominent and turn into wrinkles, then Ecollagen is the skin care range for you.

8. WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM REGULAR USE?
NovAge Ecollagen has been clinically proven to reduce wrinkles by 33% after regular use for 12 weeks. It also gives your skin great daily miniaturisation.
