Last month we blogged about the importance of Collagen, this month we want to let you know how Matrixyl is a key ingredient in stimulating collagen production?


Matrixyl is part of the pentapetide family. Known as an amino acid that penetrates through the outer layer of your skin. Reaching the fibroblast cells to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is the protein necessary to prevent fine lines and wrinkles by maintaining elasticity and tone.


As we get older we produce less collagen. Therefore, we need Matrixyl (amino acid) to stimulate collagen production and give us that young and youthful glow.


Nutracine has several products with Matrixyl and collagen that should be used twice daily:

Combination Cream, Collagen Retinyl Cream, Collagen Cream for Dry Skin,

Advanced Lip and Eye Concentrate, Lip and Eye Cream for Dry Skin, Intensive Wrinkle Reduction,

Collagen and Nutracine

Doctors have said, as we get older we lose 1% of collagen per year after we reach the age of 20. It is important to support and keep your skin healthy with Collagen and elastin, which keeps our skin supple, firm and strong. Coupled with Vitamin C these proteins provide nearly 25% of the body’s protein.


We all know Collagen is essential for a youthful appearance because it can take years off your skin. Collagen is the main structural protein found in skin. Together with Elastin and Vitamin C, research shows they play a vital role to fight fine lines, smooth out wrinkles and protect us from the sun’s harmful UV rays.


Nutracine Collagen Retinyl, Nutracine Collagen for Dry Skin, Nutracine Intensive Wrinkle and Nutracine Vitamin C have proven to erase fine lines, smooth out wrinkles and age spots, attributed to the harmful UV rays – induced by photo damage.


Support your skincare regime by eating healthy unprocessed foods rich in collagen, elastin and Vitamin C.   Foods that is rich in antioxidants – fresh fruits and vegetables like dark greens, broccoli, kale, sweet potatoes, dark berries, guava, kiwi fruit. Also foods rich in amino acids, like eggs, animal protein (which have all the essential amino acids), beans and seeds; good fats like almonds, walnuts and pecans. Add to that the super food Avocado, known to be rich in nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.
