Positive effect of fish-derived Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®) on skin health

VERISOL Gelita - Bioactive Collagen Peptides

A new study confirms supplementation with fish-derived Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®) can be as effective as meat collagen, by showing significant skin improvements


Stephan Hausmanns, GELITA’s Vice President, Health & Nutrition explains: “There are some important differences between collagens obtained from fish and from species very similar to humans, such as mammalian sources, that may explain the suboptimal effects to skin observed from great part of the science on fish-derived collagens.

Fish collagens have grabbed market attention as these products are likely to appeal to a niche group of consumers who avoid meat for dietary or religious reasons.

 “We therefore investigated how we could optimize and bring a fish-derived bioactive collagen peptide into the VERISOL® portfolio of skin health products, while ensuring the same end-point benefits to consumers”, revealed Stephan.
