  author={S. Oesser},
The effectiveness of supplementation with Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP) on the health and appearance of the skin and nails has been proven in several clinical trials. The influence of BCP supplementation on hair, however, has not been investigated to the same extent. In this placebo-controlled study, therefore, the effects of BCP intake on hair thickness and metabolism were investigated. The study was conducted on 44 healthy women aged between 39 and 75, who each received a daily dosage of… Expand

Oral Supplementation of Specific Collagen Peptides Has Beneficial Effects on Human Skin Physiology: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study
After 4 weeks of follow-up treatment, a statistically significantly higher skin elasticity level was determined in elderly women, and a positive influence of CH treatment could be observed in a subgroup analysis, but data failed to reach a level of statistical significance. Expand
Oral Intake of Specific Bioactive Collagen Peptides Reduces Skin Wrinkles and Increases Dermal Matrix Synthesis
The findings demonstrate that the oral intake of specific bioactive collagen peptides (Verisol®) reduced skin wrinkles and had positive effects on dermal matrix synthesis. Expand
A Nutritional Supplement Formulated with Peptides, Lipids, Collagen andHyaluronic Acid Optimizes Key Aspects of Physical Appearance in Nails,Hair and Skin
The authors conclude that this nutritional supplementation should be considered as an important, effective and perhaps necessary component of complete hair, nail and skin care regimens. Expand
Collagen hydrolysate intake increases skin collagen expression and suppresses matrix metalloproteinase 2 activity.
It is suggested that CH may reduce aging-related changes of the extracellular matrix by stimulating anabolic processes in skin tissue by stimulating the activity of matrix metalloproteinase 2 and 9. Expand
Substantivity to hair and skin of 125l‐labelled collagen hydrolysates under application simulating conditions
The hydrolysate which adsorbed best had the lowest overall isoelectric point, the highest pH in solution and the largest content of high molecular weight peptides. Expand
Relationship between collagen hydrolysate molecular weight and peptide substantivity to hair
Cosmetic grade collagen hydrolysates were incubated with virgin (natural) and bleached/waved (damaged) hair tresses. The bound collagen peptides were removed by both a high-temperature (50oC) and aExpand
The Effect of pH on the Sorption of Collagen-Derived Peptides by Hair
Synopsis--Sorption of peptides increases very rapidly during the first few minutes to one-half hour of peroxide or thioglycolate treatment, after which sorption is essentially constant for a period,Expand
Oral supplementation with specific bioactive collagen peptides improves nail growth and reduces symptoms of brittle nails
In women with brittle nail syndrome, nails that exhibit surface roughness, raggedness, and peeling are a common problem and treatment is needed to correct the problem. Expand

It is shown that this matrix in anagen pelage follicles of postnatal rats contains an abundance of basement membrane components rather than dermal components such as interstitial collagens, suggesting that the dermal papilla cells in vivo synthesize a basement membrane type of extracellular matrix.
