Collagen products are very popular in Japan and they have a ton of brands selling these supplements. Thankfully, there are online user rating sites, that can tell us which ones work, and which ones don't. This blog post is all about our very own experience with our best selling collagen and feedback from clients who have used this product.
Meiji Amino Collagen
This is by far our most popular collagen supplement. Meiji just introduced their new packaging and formula last quarter of 2016. Here is a comparison between the two for the regular type:
In terms of the packaging, you can see that the old one is in a tin can with a dedicated spoon and is good for 28 days. Once used up, refills are poured in the same can. This was not the most hygienic option so Meiji replaced it with a clear container, a replaceable ecocup and a dedicated spoon that now lasts for up to 30 days. The size is also smaller than the old can which makes it convenient for travelling.
Meiji's new research showed that there is a better effect on the skin if there is a good mix of premium ingredients and not so much on the quantity of the collagen itself. This is their reasoning behind their new formulation. Below is a comparison:
As you can see there is now a lower amount of collagen but with the addition of amino acids like Glycine and Cystine, and milk ceramide. A quick search will tell you that:
Glycine: protects the skin from aging and cellular mutations, fights stress and anxiety and improves overall joint health.
Cystine: helps form healthy skin, hair,and bones. It is also required to make glutathione, a natural antioxidant.
Ceramide: holds the skin cells together, forming a protective layer that plumps the skin and holds moisture. All these ingredients have a synergy effect to the skin and the rest of the body. No wonder we have been receving these feedback from customers who used this product:
"Just want to say thank you for the help! My skin glows during my wedding and I thank you for it."
"My husband noticed that my skin improved and looks smoother now!"
"My friends noticed that my skin looks finer and more supple. My pores also tightened."
Meiji Amino Collagen Premium is another option recommended for those aged 40 and above or those who want to achieve a more glowing, smoother, younger, plumper skin faster. The formula also improved having added Proteoglycan which enhances collagen absorption and has a higher water retaining capacity than hyaluronic acid. It also firms and tightens skin, lessening the appearance of pores and wrinkles. Below is a quick comparison of the old (right) and new (left) formula and packaging.
