Collagen Peptide May Improve Wrinkles, Elasticity, Appearance of Skin Later in Life

Skin naturally and gradually loses its elasticity, ability to hold and lock in moisture, and ability to produce collagen quickly and in large quantities as you age. A recent study suggests that a low dose of a type 1 fish collagen peptide may reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and dry skin in mature women.


Participants in the study included 57 mature women who were given either 2.5 grams of collagen peptide, collagen peptide plus silicon, or a placebo for 12 weeks. The researchers measured the participants’ facial skin and dominant forearms for skin elasticity, skin hydration, skin thickness, and skin color. They also evaluated facial wrinkles, skin radiance, and complexion homogeneity. Finally, all of the participants completed a questionnaire evaluating their satisfaction with the appearance of wrinkles, tone, firmness, brightness, and hydration.


At the conclusion of the study, both collagen groups had significant improvements in skin elasticity and firmness, facial skin thickness, and facial skin brightness. They also had reduced appearance of wrinkles (-16.5%), when compared with baseline. Specifically, the appearance of crow’s feet decreased in 74% of the participants in the collagen alone group and 60% of the participants in the collage plus silicon group. Finally, both collagen groups reported brighter, more hydrated facial skin the self-questionnaire at the end of the study.


Researchers from L’Archet 2 Hôpital in France led the study. It was published on March 23, 2018, in the Juniper Online Journal of Case Studies.
