We are all familiar with collagen and the role it plays in keeping our skin looking younger. From masks to supplements, almost every brand in the beauty industry seems to have collagen as an active ingredient in their formulation.

Before we go any further, let’s talk basic biology, collagen is essentially a protein that functions as a support structure for our face. While collagen gives our skin its firmness, elastin – which is a highly elastic protein- allows many tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting.

In fact it is elastin that helps our skin to return to its original position when it is poked or pinched. But if it is as important as collagen, why is it not an active ingredient in any beauty or skin care product?

As we age, the collagen and elastin in our skin deteriorates, resulting in sagging and the other physical signs of ageing that we are all familiar with.

The Problem With Imperfect Repair..

So what do wrinkles, acne and pigmentation have in common? They are all ‘skin wounds’ inflicted almost daily by a variety of aggressors such as UV rays, blue light, and environmental pollution. All of these factors induce a an inflammatory response within the skin, resulting in imperfect repair that in turn leads to invisible solar scars.

Repetitive damage over time will eventually will result in a visible solar scar that will manifest as visible fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots.

Here’s Why Focusing On Wound Healing Is Key To Treating Ageing And Skin Damage..  

IDS Skincare in conjunction with Dr Jacob Waugh, a physician/scientist
at Stanford University School of Medicine, developed Neulastin a proprietary and curated blend of highly active ingredients that aids in the production of elastin and collagen within the skin for restoration and repair.

Neulastin works as a wound healer to deliver active ingredients within selected products with added ‘repair and restore’ properties. This allows users to maximise the full potential of their skincare products and to restore and repair their skin as much as possible, before visible solar scars appear.

Neulastin works to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen for effective skin repair, as well as to enhance the absorption and delivery of active ingredients into the skin.

Neulastin found in certain IDS Skincare products works as a healing salve to repair and restore damaged skin, enabling it to better absorb the active ingredients in your skincare.
