THE SKIN COLLAGEN DIET™

BOOST & PROTECT COLLAGEN WITH 
FUNCTIONAL FOODS & PHYTOCHEMICALS

COLLAGEN IS NOT A FOOD

The current 'protein mania' nutrition trend is lying to you. Collagen is not a food, collagen is not a nutrient and collagen is not an essential human supplement. Collagen is a protein made in the body using amino acids, vitamins and minerals supplied by the diet. 

Not only do certain foods help the body to build collagen but some dietary patterns - looking at you meat, grain, fat and dairy-based Western diet - can DESTROY collagen. The collagen supplement pushers are not telling anyone this...

THIS IS WHY AS A SKIN-HEALTH PRACTITIONER YOU NEED ALL OF THE FACTS SO YOU CAN...

🧬 HELP YOUR CLIENTS BOOST THEIR COLLAGEN EVEN IN MENOPAUSE

After age 30 collagen production starts to nosedive thanks to faltering Estrogen and other causes such as a diet rich in collagen destroying foods and lacking in collagen building foods. Collagen loss can be slowed down with an intelligent plant-based diet rich in phytochemicals

🥩 STOP YOUR CLIENTS FROM ACCIDENTALLY DESTROYING THIER COLLAGEN WITH POOR DIETARY CHOICES

There are foods and dietary patterns that destroy collagen. Structural proteins in the body are constantly undergoing renewal so collagen will also be broken down and rebuilt BUT certain foods can speed up collagen destruction and phytochemicals from plant foods or botanicals can slow it down or even stop it.

🐇 MAINTAIN THEIR 'CRUELTY-FREE BEAUTY' ETHICS

Many of your clients will have strong ethics against animal cruelty for beauty and some of them may already be vegan or plant-based. Collagen is an animal product and therefore isn't cruelty free. Collagen is the epitome of unnecessary animal suffering

DID YOU KNOW...

That proteins are 'species specific' which means that the HUMAN body cannot use collagen from a cow, pig or fish. The collagen supplement has to be broken down into peptides then single amino acids before if can even pass through the gut wall into the blood stream.

Anyone telling you that their collagen supplement can 'bypass the digestive system' is not telling the truth.

The amino acids used to make HUMAN collagen come from delicious plant foods like avocados, spinach and bananas. Special cells in the skin then build the collagen proteins from these amino acids + vitamins and minerals. Collagen production in the body is very complex business. You'll learn all about this on this Collagen Biosynthesis Masterclass

Our students love this class

I learned a lot actually. I am trailing a psoriasis oil and cream using different oils and essential oils so for me to learn about the Cathelicidins are regulated by D3 explains why the sun helps so many people with skin issues
NIAMH
I like how the pdf is laid out with useful information that I will continue to come back to
RACHEL
This is completely new to me to introduce the concept of skin barrier based on skin microbiome. This is very useful for my daily practice to educate my patients, especially recurrent skin issues
WING YIU LAI
I didn’t know very much about the skin’s micro biome prior to this course which was why I enrolled. As a skin therapist, this new information I’ve learned is going to help me immensely with my clients! This is the type of information that helps strengthen the client relationship as it shows the skin therapist is not only knowledgeable but  their information is scientifically based
CARON
My first intro to skin microbiome. I learned  about skin  bacteria  and the disruptors  soaps, detergents affect the pH, acid mantle sebum production
ANDREA
I learned so much about the Skin Microbiome and how it harmonizes with the Acid Mantle and Skin Barrier. I have a better understanding of the pH of our skin and how skin hydration levels and sebum play a huge role in predicting Skin Microbiome levels.

My Aha moment was the glycerol/glycerine! Of all things! Possibly because my interest is in formulating!

 During my work as a skincare formulator I noticed that so many cosmetic ingredients were foods or food extracts, I realised that the power to beautify, treat and rejuvenate the skin was in diet, nutrition and food...not skincare products
