Collagen that Dives Deep into Your Dermal
May 22, 2020
Collagen that dives deep into your dermal within 5 seconds.
Our skin comes face-to-face with environmental stressors and pollutants every day. These external factors contribute towards the loss of collagen and elastin within the skin, ultimately leading to the onset of visible signs of aging in the skin.
Collagen is the main structural protein in human connective tissues, most notably our skin. The vast majority of the collagen in our skin is found in the dermis (the second layer of skin that sits beneath the epidermis), where it’s also produced. Skin cells in the dermis (fibroblasts) synthesise the collagen that holds the rest of the dermis together, giving our skin its underlying structure.
As for the structure of collagen itself, it’s kind of like a braid or rope: Individual amino acids link up to form long chains, which bundle together to form thicker strands. Those strands then twist and coil around each other to form triple helices. Finally, those helices connect end to end and stack on top of each other to form clusters called fibrils. In other words, collagen is a pretty complex and massive molecule.
That’s why creams formulated with pure collagen simply can’t live up to their lofty claims— those huge, braided molecules are just too big to penetrate your epidermis, and definitely too big to get down into the dermis where the real magic happens. So even though collagen creams feel nice and may help moisturize the skin, that’s about it in terms of benefits.

We know you might think collagen products can be quite skeptical but with nanofibre. It has pretty much solved your doubts. The width of each nanofibre in this image is 300 nm, which is 100 times smaller than the width of the human skin pores (30 um).
So imagine collagen that is small enough to reach into your dermal layer within 5 seconds…
That’s right, ActivLayr is scientifically & clinically proven to reach 1.5mm into your epidermis within the first minute. Dive deep as 2.5mm within 50mins, nano-collagen get deliver to layers of the skin as it passes through. It’s not magic but just plainly through years of trial and error.
