How to apply Colway collagen ?

Comprehensive instructions how to upply collagen gels and other products are on the page: How to apply collagen?

How to store collagen ?

Nowaday we have in offer 3 types of Colway collagen gels: Natural Collagen, Native Collagen and Atelokolagen Colway. Each of them has different properties and storage requirements but what is in common for all of them is: keeping away from the sun - in practice in bathroom with all other cosmetics and protect them from children.
Do not keep them in a fridge, there is no need for that and absolutly protect from freezing due to high risk of cracking of a bottle and wasting a gel, because of bacteria contamination resulting in loose of gels' properties.

Natural Collagen - this is the first generation collagen gel, unfortunatelly not resistant to temperature changes beyond a gap of  5o to 28oC. We have to protect the product from being frozen (due to risk of bottle cracking) and from high temperatures, causing breaking down of triple-helixes bonds and loss of it's bioactive properties within 48 hours. It is enough to store it in other cosmetics in a bathroom.

Native Collagen - this is second generation of Colway collagen gels, that is resistant to temperature in which we human normally exist. It doesn't loose it's properties even after heating it to the temperature over 50oC. You are wellcome to take it in your handbag on a beach, just remember to protect it from direct sun. When kept in handbag nothing will happen to it, except change in consistancy, that after a while will come back to normal. It doesn't affect it's bioactive properties. You can now enjoy great skin protection and sunbathing at the same time.

Atelokolagen Colway - it's the newest Colway achievement - it's resistance to tempreture is up to 39oC. Over that temperature it unfortunatelly denatures and must be protected when temperatures are very high - in practice we keep it in bathroom with other cosmetics.

What is the difference between Natural Collagen, Native Collagen and Atelokolagen Colway?

At the beggining let us provide links to wider description of those products: Natural Collagen, Native Collagen and Atelokolagen Colway. Main diferences, comparing to Natural Collagen, are:
- resistance to temperatures: 28oC Natural Collagen, 39oC Atelokolagen Colway and over 50oC in case of Native Collagen
- pH improvement - it is adjusted to average pH of human skin: pH 5,5,
- cleansliness improvement - Native Collagen and Atelokolagen Colway are free of melanin and protein and fatty residues,
- both are enriched in valuable active components, becouse Native Collagen and Atelokolagen Colway are capable to bind and transport deep into the skin other substances, what significantly increases application benefits,
- price, that is related to quality.

What is the difference between Colway collagen and others available on a market?

There are 2 answers for this questions according to what type of collagen we are thinking of.

Firstly, Colway collagen gels are based on unique method of production and have got bioactive properties. It is polish discovery, well protected and so far nowhere else on Earth there is produced collagen capable to penetrate skin protective barrier. The comparison of polish fish collagen with other collagen products shows up their totally different properties, method of production and the material that it is produced from.
Main difference is that Colway has got collagen hydrate, what is hydrated (binding water) collagen in it's third stage of development: triple-helix (what on it's own is a biotechnological sensation) or in case of second generation collagen gels - Native Collagen, what is even grater sensation (virtually biochemical fiction), hydrated products of controlled collagen triple-helix break down products, selected oligopeptides that have no problems with penetrating our skin and nourishing the dermis.
For instance, the term of "collagen" commonly means collagen hydrolyzate, what is product of termo-chemical processing of adult forms of collagen (fibres or less often fibrils). This product is often called "petite carrion" that never has, hasn't got and will never have got biological active properties. It is widely known, that it's main function is quite effective moisturising of the skin.

Secondary, in Poland there are few companies that produce biologically active gels and try to compete with Colway. This are very small companies, riching barely few percent of Colway sale and is still on level of first generation of collagen gels, comperable with (objectively still great product) Collagen Natural, while Colway has developed outstanding second generation of collagen gels: Native Collagen and Atelokolagen Colway.

My beautician told me, that it is not true, that collagen is capable to penetrate the skin.

Similar to above question, the honest answer for that questis is: Yes and No. All comes out from misunderstanding, unfortunatelly still quite common among professionals. We will try to explain the problem.

The misundestaning is coming out from the books that have recently become inadequate about the collagen. They don't mention about polish discovery of collagen hydrates. So the term "collagen" for professional means "collagen hydrolyzates" that have nothing common with hydrates (excempt word "collagen"). This it different type of collagen and has got different, bioactive properties. Collagen hydrolizates are very highly processed collagen fibres or fibrils and are called also "peptide carrion", what emphesizes it's total inability to have any bioactive properties. This is what professionals think of when they hear the word "collagen" and will say that it is impossible to penetrate the skin. And they have right, becouse collagen hydrolyzates are unable to do so. It is used in cosmetology only as a moisturizer (to be honest quite good one) and nothing else.

For intance answer "No" means, that Colway collagen gels are different type of collagen, that is still quite new product and many professionals haven't heard about it yet. It is not even collagen triple-helix itself penetrating the skin, but products of it's break down. Free aminoacids and micro-peptides that are able to penetrate the epidermis and rich deep layers of dermis (so far, it is only one known natural protein capable to penatrate epidermis!). This is real cosmetological sensation but we also want to admit to some marketing simplification. It is easier to say "collagen Colway penetrates the skin" than explain whole process of that pentration. We understand that it may cause objections and understandable scepticism of prefessionals. Furthermore we want to emphesize that transdermal properties of Colway collagen gels break down products are scientifically proven without any doubt, for example proving significantly (about 30%) increase of collagen in skin after regular collagen gel application.
Though scientific proves may be interesting for some people, we believe that the best prove of phenomenal properties of Colway collagen gels is constantly growing group of hundreds of thousands now customers who without any advertisments (just after recommendation) became real fan of that product, who doesn't imagine skin care without collagen anymore. Benefits of application are really phenomenal and let us treat increasing number of collagen users as the best prove of it.

Why I haven't heard about it yet in media?

Very good question! We praise collagen gels so much, but you haven't seen so far a single advertisment (and most probably you will not) in TV, radio or magazines. So, why advertismets of such a phenomenal cosmetic do not bombard us from every corner and every possible media, while logically, they shloud?

All becouse of properties of Natural Collagen that make it like designed specially for direct sale, not for "standard distribution": factory -> warehouse ->shop/drygstore/beauty parlour -> client. All becouse of it's temperature instability. Let's us know, that first gels (those over 20 years ago) were very unstable and risky in distrubution and sale, due to very narrow gap of its stability just betwen 5oC-15oC. There were attempts to sell the discovery to cosmetic concerness, but despite of great test results they have resigned. Why? The answer is great economic risk for such a product regardless of its care properties. Just imagine, dear reader, how much money it must to be invest in system of distribution: special containers to transport, special packeging and fridges in shop all over the world. Let's say company is willing to invest. Client goes to the shop, buys the product, puts it in a car and - like ice cream - didn't even get back to home, when collagen is spoiled, becouse the temperature was about 25oC... The question now is, who's going to pay for the product? Client didn't use it, didn't open it and resonably demands money back... We hope that with above description we have pointed out why, this product doesn't meet requirements to be distributed in traditional way. This is main reason why huge cosmetic corpoporations didn't wanted to invest in this product. The marketing campaign is very costly and only those corporations had enough funds to do it. There were some attempts to sell first collagen gels in shops without advertisment. It was failure, becouse noone knew what it was and didn't wanted to buy it.

Though huge cosmetic companies resigned from the product it didn't stop polish scientists to carrying on works on it. After improving it tempreture stability to 5oC-28oC (still not matching market requirements) to prove that it was like developed for direct sale. Amazing Colway success is a great evidence that this product proves it's quality itself. It needed just recommendation to be successfully sold to milions of customers without advertisment. Quality does not need advertisment - it needs recommendation.

The truth is that You will not see or hear advertisment in radio, television or popular magazines... but what with internet? This is much different story, becouse there is no need to have graat funds and it is getting more and more loud about there.

I am very satisfied from collagen. How does it work on my skin?

This is true, that skin treatment with Colway collagen gels (especially supported with other Colway cosmetics) make lot of our customers satisfied and happy. The skin becomes very well nourished, well cared-of, moisturized and literally shining. It is easy to notice, especially when your colligues ask what are you using, isn't it?

Well, after application Collagen triple-helix break down break down into even smaller peptides, that are easily capable to penetrate the epidermis. Structure of those peptides is very characteristic and - like words are build of characters creating message - sequence of  amino acids in collagen peptides is in fact biological message for our skin: "start to produce collagen". This is very fascinating process. As a result we observe increase of collagen production in our skin and improvement of it's general characteristics, like nutrition, firmness, glowing, moisture, regulation of sebum secretion, etc. Our skin starts to shine.
We want to emphesize that it is one of very few cosmetics that acts directly on cause of skin ageing, not just on effects. The cause of ageing (not only skin, but all body) is gradually increasing loss of collagen due to slowing down of it production by our body. Therefore Natural Collagen or Native Collagen we call as "elixir of youth", becouse they stimulate our body to overproduce body collagen. This is directly anti-aging property.

When should I start to use Natural or Native Collagen?

We may encounter some opinion and recommendations to start use Natural or Native Collagen gels when on skin have already appeared visible signes of ageing, mostly wrinkles. This is very questionable advice, becouse Collagen is most effictive as prevention and protection agains wrinkles appearance, than getting rid of them. Is has goy good impact on them, shawelling them, but it is also, unfortunatelly to late to eliminate deep wrinkles just with it. Wrinkle is a very deep wound in a skin and it is very diffucult to heal it.
Therefore, we recommend the rule that says that prevention is cheaper than treatment and start to use Natural or Native Collagen when our body start to slow it's production. It is about 25-27 years old, what may be surprising for many, but will give you guarantee, that regular application of Colway gels will delay wrinkles for decades.

The colllagen gels may be used earliet of course in different purposes like sunburns, other burns or acne, etc., regardless of age.

How long do I have to apply Collagen ?

There is no specified time or limit - your body slows collagen production without limit and the stimulation depends on your personal choices. If you want to delay it, how much and how long for? Colway gels are not addictive, are in a 100% from natural components, therefore are totally safe. There is no risk of harm (expect the situation when someone is allergic to any of the substances used in gels). The only result of ceasing its aplication is gradual return of our skin to the point, where the application was started - like every other cosmetic. Without stimulation, protection and good nutrition our skin will start to age faster.
