A few weeks ago some of our team had the pleasure of attending Bend Skincare’s launch of their latest product: Marine Collagen + Co-Factors. We are so fortunate to have such great training and education from so many of our spa partners and Bend is no exception! We were treated to an amazing presentation by founder, Marc St-Onge who spoke about the new product, answered some questions, and re-affirmed why Bend is a brand we are proud to work with & promote. We are truly grateful to have such a innovative company working & creating right here in our own city!
To recap, Bend Skincare Anti-Aging Formula is an omega-3 supplement (and SO much more) that works from the inside out to promote skin health & a healthy skin climate. Read all about it’s amazing ingredients and benefits here!
As the Bend Skincare family grows, we are looking forward to the arrival of Marine Collagen + Co-Factors. This is a unique product that helps to build, repair, and protect collagen in the skin. Collagen is essential in maintaining the skin’s structure and tone and naturally decreases over time. Certain factors such as genetics, lifestyle, and sun damage can accelerate collagen damage which results in fine lines, roughness, and wrinkles. But there is good news! This revolutionary product actually signals the cells to increase the production of collagen which is a much more effective approach than applying collagen topically. An ingested collagen product is actually able to affect the dermis, which is the layer of skin where the collagen matrix resides.
So why marine collagen?
There is great benefit to using a fish-derived form of collagen as compared to pig or cow. Most importantly, marine collagen has been documented to be much better absorbed by the body. It is also better for the environment and can be produced much more quickly than other animal sources. Bend has a strong commitment to the environment and sustainability so have chosen to align with a fish plant in Iceland that adheres to their values and standards.
And what are these Co-Factors?
Bend’s latest product features vitamin C as well as silicon which are essential for “collagen crosslinking”. This process allows collagen to be strong and more resistant to damage, thus improving the overall efficacy of the supplement. Additionally, vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant and silicon has been shown to strengthen hair, nails, and even improve bone density.
Simply mix 1 tablespoon of Marine Collagen + Co-Factors into your beverage of choice (hot or cold) every day to build healthy collagen from the inside out. Bend Anti-Aging Formula is a perfect companion to give you your best skin ever!
