Recombinant Human Micro-molecule Collagen
CAS NO.: 9007-34-5
Collagen is the main structural protein in the extracellular matrix found in the body's various connective tissues. As the main component of connective tissue, it is the most abundant protein in mammals, making up from 25% to 35% of the whole-body protein content. Collagen is widely used in cosmetic preparations. The role of collagen is to increase skin hydration and prevent skin ageing. Film-forming properties of collagen materials can be modified by collagen cross-linking and/or blending of collagen with other proteins and polysaccharides.
