Abstract
Collagen supplements began hitting the US market about 3 years ago and then the supplements went mainstream. Dermatologists know that collagen is a building block of healthy skin. It is a structural protein, giving the skin strength and shape. It acts as the “frame” in the skin, while the elastin and hyaluronic acid act as the “padding” on the frame.
