VEGAN COLLAGEN DOESN'T EXIST. THESE ARE THE TOP 3 OFFENDERS.

VEGAN COLLAGEN DOESN'T EXIST. THESE ARE THE TOP 3 OFFENDERS | MY WAY UP


You're probably no stranger to the benefits of collagen as far as improved skin, hair and nail health goes.

But what about vegan collagen?

It certainly seems like there is. But, alas, it doesn't - only in the minds and designs of tricky company executives.

Let's examine a few of the top offenders.

 

1. Collagen Inner Beauty Boost (NOT collagen)

Vegan Collagen doesn't exist

 

This is a classic marketing confusion trick: "COLLAGEN" in big print, "boost" in small print. 

Because there's no actual collagen in this product, the manufacturers can't label it as only collagen, they have to "boost" or "support" in the title also.

Very misleading. Of course, they do have the added benefit of being able to claim that this product is also vegan.

 THERE IS NO VEGAN COLLAGEN ON THE MARKET

 

2. Edible Beauty Native Collagen (NOT collagen)

Vegan Collagen doesn't exist

This one is even tougher to spot. In fact, they've even called this powder collagen twice on the front cover alone. 

It isn't collagen. There is no collagen in this whatsoever - but how are you to know?

Sometimes, you won't know, until you check out the ingredients list: 

Rosella Flower Powder*, Baobab Fruit Powder*, Sea Buckthorn Juice Powder*, Apple Pectin, Kakadu Plum Powder*, Quandong Powder*, Macqui Berry Powder*, Monk Fruit Powder, Aloe Vera Inner Leaf Gel Powder*, Mountain Pepperberry Powder.*

Cool ingredients - no collagen, however. 

Companies trick consumers all the time.

 READ LABELS AND INGREDIENTS LISTS CAREFULLY
 

 

3. Sunwarrior Plant-Based Collagen (NOT collagen).

 Vegan Collagen doesn't exist

This is also not collagen - there's absolutely zero.

Worse still, they've included sunflower oil as a filler ingredient. Sunflower oil is a vegetable/seed oil.

These oils are prone to oxidising (becoming rancid) and causing per-oxidative damage to cells inside your body, including damaging the skin.

It would have been great to see coconut oil used instead, which is resistant to oxidation.

BONUS: Why not use a pure collagen peptide instead? If you'd prefer a 100% wild caught marine collagen, with extra nutraceutical boosters in it, here's another option.

Perfectly Pure Collagen
