How Taut® Collagen Works


Collagen is the key building block of the dermis layer of our skin. It functions very much like the frame of our house. Without a strong frame, your house starts to get cracks and fall down. 

There are 28 type of collagen in our body. Our dermis layer is made up of 85% type I and 15% type III collagen, fibroblasts, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Together they are the key components for the extracellular matrix which gives our skin its structure, elasticity and firmness.

Unfortunately after we turn 30, our body stops producing collagen and we start to lose 1-2% every year.


This skin graph shows the collagen intensity in our skin dermis at different ages. Yellow and Orange shows high intensity of collagen when we are in our 20s and 30s vs green and black, which is low intensity after age 40.

Collagen depletion results in 

1. Diminished elasticity, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.

2. Dull, dry and fatigued skin.



Collagen molecule at its native state is too large for our body to digest and the pores of the epidermis to absorb. 

However, Taut® Premium Collagen uses the revolutionary patented hydrolysis technology that breaks down the super collagen molecule (300,000 Daltons) into micro-sized tiny pieces called collagen peptides (average size 3,000-5,000 Daltons) small enough to be readily absorbed and penetrate into the dermis layer of the skin. Clinical studies show ingesting 10,000mg hydrolyzed collagen a day for 8 weeks helps to increase skin collagen and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase elasticity and hydration. Clinical studies prove hydrolyzed collagen works.

Each serving of Taut Premium Collagen drink delivers 13,000mg type I hydrolyzed marine collagen peptides (90% Type I and 10% Type III ) with hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate and other key anti-aging ingredients.

Rather than providing amino acids that have to be broken down and then reassembled into collagen, hydrolyzed collagen is able to deliver small, usable chain peptides efficiently into skin dermis and trigger collagen production in the skin. 

Our body detects the  high concentration of collagen peptides  (13,000mg) in our bloodstream, triggers the wound response. This healing response is very similar to what happens when you cut your finger or sustain an injury. This wound repair response in turn activates a group of specialized cells in the dermis called 'fibroblast' to begin producing collagen again.

In addition, Taut's hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate (elastin) with other key ingredients help to restore the elastin and hyaluronic acid in the dermis of our skin, providing the moisture, suppleness, elasticity needed to promote younger smoother skin.

The graph shows ultrasound images of a 60 year-old woman’s face after drinking one bottle of Taut Collagen every night for the first eight nights, and then every other night during an 8-week clinical study.

You can see below that after 8 weeks,  her collagen intensity has improved dramatically. Skin appears smoother with denser collagen structure (the yellowish orange areas) than before drinking Taut Premium Collagen.
