Frequently Asked Questions

What is Skinade™?

Skinade™ is an alternative approach to skincare: a scientifically formulated drink that provides a perfect ratio of liquid to active ingredients working synergistically from the inside out to give you healthier, better and younger looking skin from within.

What does Skinade™ do?

Skinade™ delivers essential micronutrients in liquid form and helps to re-build the collagen matrix in your skin. Skinade combats the signs of ageing by reducing oxidative stress, preventing cross linking of collagen fibres, increasing moisture and hydration, increasing natural collagen production and increasing natural hyaluronic acid production within the dermal layer of the skin. As a result skinade restores your skin’s youthful appearance, improves tone, texture, hydration, smooths furrow lines and improves skin suppleness.

Why do I need to improve the collagen levels in my skin?

From about the age of 20 onwards we lose between 1-1.5% of the collagen in our skin each year. From the age of 30 collagen production is significantly reduced. Collagen loss results in wrinkles, fine lines and dry, blemished or thinning skin.

Doesn’t the body produce its own collagen?

Yes, but as we age, the cells that promote collagen production in the skin decrease and slow down, and our skin consequently starts to develop fine lines and wrinkles. Skinade™ contains collagen peptides that trigger the body’s own natural process of collagen formation by stimulating fibroblasts, thus encouraging the body to produce more of its own collagen.

Should I still use face creams if I take Skinade™?

Skinade™ works synergistically with face creams and salon treatments to keep your skin in optimum condition. Using a broad-spectrum face cream with a high SPF to protect your skin from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays is particularly important, as is not smoking and reducing sugar consumption, both of which are implicated in the ageing of skin.

Why not just take collagen tablets?

To consume the same level of collagen in tablet form you would have to take 20 large tablets. Collagen tablets are more difficult to take and assimilate in the body and are only partially absorbed by the body.

Are the 7000 mg of collagen in Skinade™ enough? Some products contain more collagen.

Skinade uses 7000mg of class leading patented collagen peptides type i and iii with an unsurpassed molecular weight of just 2kDal. Fibroblast proliferation (bodies natural manufacturing of collagen) occurs at around 6000mg. Skinade is unique as it is 100% in solution, this ensures 90% to 95% absorption. This level of bioavailability can never be matched by tablets or powders suspended in liquid. Fibroblast proliferation either occurs or it does not and increasing collagen levels beyond 7000mg does not increase efficacy. It is important to note that collagen peptides are only able to function when combined with appropriate levels of calcium sorbate (PH neutral vitamin C) we include 450% RDA in every bottle.

I am young and don’t have any wrinkles or skin conditions. Can I still benefit from taking Skinade™?

From about the age of 20 onwards we lose between 1-1.5% of the collagen in our skin each year. Collagen loss results in wrinkles, fine lines and dry, blemished or thinning skin. Drinking collagen from a young age before wrinkles form will help you maintain your youthful appearance.

Why does Skinade not contain Hyaluronic acid (HLA)?

HLA taken orally is denatured by digestion and there is no scientific evidence that any HLA reaches the skin. However, when you ingest the high quality collagen peptides contained in skinade your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid in the dermis. This is where HLA is most needed.

Where does the collagen in Skinade™ come from?

Skinade™ contains marine collagen sourced only from the skin of freshwater fish. It is supplied by a respected European manufacturer and is certified fit for human consumption.

What is the difference between marine sourced collagen and other sources of collagen?

The collagen in skinade™ is sourced from freshwater fish. This avoids the possibility of mercury and PCN contamination as well as high levels of sodium more common in saltwater fish.

What does “hydrolysed” mean?

The marine collagen in skinade™ has been hydrolysed, which means that it has been through a gentle, enzymatic process that breaks down the larger collagen molecules into collagen peptides. These peptides have a much lower molecular weight and can be easily transported to and absorbed in areas where the skin needs it. Taking hydrolysed collagen in liquid form increases collagen absorption significantly.

What makes Skinade™ different from other collagen drinks?

The formulation of skinade™ is proprietary and is protected by patents pending. Skinade is not a collagen drink, it is a skincare drink which contains collagen and a unique blend of micronutrients providing a perfect ratio of active ingredients to liquid. These work synergistically to create the most advanced, effective and bio-available anti-ageing skincare product on the market today.

Who should take Skinade™?

Skinade™ is suitable for anyone over the age of 18 who wants their skin to retain its youthful, healthy appearance (N.B. see the section on product safety below).

How frequently should I take Skinade™?

Take one 150 ml bottle or 15 ml sachet of skinade™ a day, ideally before or after breakfast.

What does Skinade™ taste of?

Skinade contains the all-natural flavours of peach and mangosteen to make it a pleasant tasting drink.

How should I store Skinade™?

Skinade™ does not have to be stored in the fridge, as it is shelf stable, but many people prefer to drink the bottle every morning chilled from the fridge or to add the sachet to chilled water. Shake the bottle or stir in the sachet contents before drinking.

Should I buy the Skinade™ bottle or Skinade™ Travel sachet?

This depends entirely on your preferences. The two products are equally effective. The sachet version (skinade™ travel) was developed to be carried in hand luggage on a plane. Just add the sachet contents to half a glass of water each day.

I usually take a daily multi-vitamin - should I continue taking it with Skinade™?

Skinade™ contains a vitamin B complex (B1, B2, B3, B5, B7, B9 & B12), vitamin C and the fatty acids omega 3 & 6. We recommend that you check what you are taking against the skinade™ nutritional information on the back of the box or on line at www.skinade.com. You should not need further quantities of these vitamins unless your doctor advises differently.

Does Skinade™ contain gluten, bovine or porcine products, hormones, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), alcohol, added sugar, artificial flavours or artificial colours?

Skinade™ is free of all these ingredients and additives.

Is Skinade™ suitable for vegetarians?

Skinade™ contains collagen sourced from freshwater fish.

Is Skinade™ suitable for diabetics?

Yes, skinade™ contains only 2kcal of sugar (sourced from natural grape juice) and 0.02g of sucralose. However, if you have any concerns, we recommend to always check with your doctor.

What results will I see from taking Skinade™ and how long will it take?

Feedback from our clients and our own testing shows that:

  • After 4-6 days clients begin to see and feel a difference in their skin: they say it feels moister and softer.
  • After 10-12 days clients say their skin is more uniform, smoother, plumper, more radiant and glowing.
  • Between 2-4 weeks clients report a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
  • After 6-8 weeks of continued daily use the benefits continue to build and your skin will look healthier and younger.

Can I expect to see other benefits?

Clients have also reported a number of benefits from taking skinade regularly.

I am currently on medication for a skin condition. Will it be a problem taking Skinade?

It is unlikely that skinade will conflict with your medication; however we recommend that you check with your doctor before taking skinade.

What will happen if I stop taking Skinade™?

Individual results will vary but if you stop taking Skinade™ for a short period (say a weekend), results will be maintained. However, if you stop completely you will slowly lose the benefits you have gained.

How many calories does Skinade™ contain?

Each 150ml bottle of skinade™ and each 15 ml sachet of skinade™ travel contain less than 35 calories. Fewer than 2 of these calories come from the natural sugar of grape juice. This is important because, after sunlight and smoking, sugar is the worst enemy of the skin, as it causes glycation (crystallisation of the collagen matrix, making it brittle; this causes lines and wrinkles).

Will Skinade™ only help the skin on my face?

Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and collagen is a critical part of the structure of the dermis and gives our skin its youthful appearance. Skinade™ will benefit the skin on all parts of your body.

Is Skinade™ safe to take?

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, seek professional medical advice before taking skinade ™.
  • If you suffer from food allergies, have any underlying medical conditions or are taking medication, always seek professional medical advice before using skinade™.
  • If a child consumes skinade™ there is no danger to the child’s health, as it contains no harmful ingredients. However, the formula has been designed for adult use and should be treated like any adult supplement.
  • Vitamin B sensitivity: some clients make experience a rare, short-term (10-30 minute) flush. This is not an allergic reaction: vitamin B increases the blood flow through the fine capillaries, delivering nutrients to areas of poor circulation.
  • You may experience a mild laxative detox effect when you start to take skinade™.
  • Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

I am on the pill. Is it safe to drink Skinade™?

Yes, skinade™ is safe for women taking oral contraceptives. However, there are many different types so it is always best to check with your doctor.

I am trying to have a baby. Is it safe to drink Skinade™?

Yes, skinade™ is safe for women trying to fall pregnant, but there are no studies relating to the safety of food supplements during pregnancy. Seek professional medical advice if you fall pregnant, or if you are breast-feeding after your baby is born.
