Bare Biology Skinful Pure Marine Collagen powder is made from type 1 hydrolysed marine collagen peptides from wild, certified sustainable cod. Skinful marine collagen powder contains collagen peptides which are easily absorbed and offer support to everything from our skin, muscles and bones to our fingernails and hair. Bare Biology collagen powder has a neutral taste, so it's easy to add to drinks you already enjoy like tea and coffee. This means that whenever you remember to take it, you can simply stir it into your drink and you won't even notice it's there.
Unlike other supplements, the collagen in Bare Biology collagen won't be damaged by heat, so you could add it to muffins and cookies as well soups and stews. Collagen peptides in marine collagen powder can withstand heat up to 300°C, making them one of the few protein powders that's good for cooking and baking.

However, some people have been known to experience mild side effects, ranging from feelings of fullness to mind diarrhea and on rare occasions, skin rashes. Taking collagen supplements with food may help to avoid any gastrointestinal problems. Some people notice that they feel thirstier when they consume more protein. Listen to your body and drink extra water if you need to. Collagen can possibly reduce your serotonin levels. There is a small amount of tryptophan in our marine collagen but the other amino acids cause the liver to increase uptake of it by the liver and reduce uptake by the brain, therefore leaving less in the blood to be used to make serotonin. Please always consult your GP if taking SSRI's. Do not exceed the daily recommended amounts. Store in a cool place with the lid firmly closed and out of direct sunlight. Consult your doctor before taking if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have any medical condition or are on medication.

What's an amino acid profile and why is it important?
We all know collagen is good for our skin but the real magic lies in the levels of amino acids they contain. Collagen peptides normally contain around 19 different amino acids, including eight of the nine essential amino acids. The important amino acids glycine, proline and hydroxyproline are the most prevalent in collagen peptides, making up 50% of its total amino acid content - the same amount that's in human skin.
Is maltodextrin is used in the drying process of this collagen?
Are there any added ingredients?
No added ingredients Just pure, unflavoured, extremely fine and dissolvable collagen which you can add to any drink (ideal in coffee) without noticing it's there.
Is this tested for heavy metals?
Bare Biology test all their products for purity, including heavy metals such as mercury.
Is the fish used sustainable?
The Norwegian manufacturer only uses MSC-certified, wild codfish from the North Atlantic using the discarded skin from fish fillets. Sustainable and waste-reducing.
Some collagens cannot be absorbed properly by the body. Please can you explain some of the science behind this collagen.
The body can absorb this hydrolyzed collagen peptides (meaning tiny fragments) and free amino acids with a very low molecular weight of under 3,000 Daltons.
What is a good recipe for using with collagen powder?
This is a great recipe to try if you’re new to using collagen powder. It’s such an easy way to weave a dose of collagen peptides into your daily routine, meaning you’re more likely to remember to take it! You could always just stir in the collagen powder until it dissolves, but we love the decadent frothiness that blending creates. On warmer days, or simply if it takes your fancy, pour over ice for an iced collagen latte. They’re so delicious and creamy, they feel like a treat.
