Here at Face the Future, we are always so excited to announce the latest brands to join us in supporting you…to make your skin the best it can be. Say hello to Proto-col, the experts in collagen with an inside-out approach to beauty and wellness. The British brand is based out of West Wiltshire and the team are all very passionate about collagen and how it supports the way we look, feel and move.
Elite athlete James Greenwell founded the brand back in 2003. It was born out of personal experience when he tore his Achilles tendon late in his career. He found that collagen was imperative in his recovery and after retiring from sport; he launched Proto-col, with high-grade collagen at the heart of all the products.
As we all know, collagen is a vital skin protein. Founder, James Greenwell describes it as “the glue that holds us together”. You can find it in skin but also in nails, tissues, bones, muscles and joints. It’s what keeps our bodies firm and supple and is essential as a structural protein that affects how we look, feel and move.
Sadly, as we age, the production of collagen in our bodies depletes. Scientific studies show that we lose around 1.5% of collagen each year. This decline is what increases the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and cellulite, but also decelerates our recovery process, with skin starting to look dry and lacking elasticity and vitality.
The Proto-col range of beauty capsules and drinks are formulated with Verisol®, which is clinically tested to support skin’s wellbeing and boost collagen levels in the body. The supplements contain collagen derived from the hides of pasture fed cows (bovine), whereas Proto-col skincare products contain collagen derived from plants.
The core values behind Proto-col are science, innovation, curiosity and trust. Science and innovation go hand in hand and are responsible for guiding research and development as well as figuring out how to explore new ways of formulating. As a leading British beauty brand since 2003, Proto-col has built up trust within the field, and the team truly care about their responsibility to their community, the planet and making informed decisions thinking about those in mind.
The Product Range
Proto-col’s range of collagen-boosting products can be broken down into three categories, beauty supplements, skincare and wellbeing. The beauty supplements are all formulated with Verisol® and work to reduce the visible signs of ageing and increase skins elasticity.
The bestseller out of the beauty supplement range is Pure Collagen (which was also Proto-col’s first product). The easy to swallow capsules are is perfect if you are looking to achieve a more youthful complexion. The form of collagen peptides present in Proto-col’s formulations is the most potent on the market.
Proto-col has an extensive range of skincare products from exfoliators and masks to cleansers and serums. Their range of skincare all has the same message: to nourish and rejuvenate the skin through the use of collagen. The hero product from the skincare range is the Moisturising Facial Gel. This is formulated with plant-derived collagen, which naturally plumps the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
The Skincare range is formulated with high quality ingredients due to the brand’s extensive knowledge and research into understanding the human body and the vital function that collagen plays in skin health.
The collection is comprised of a combination of high-grade plant-derived collagen, which plumps, firms and hydrates skin to reveal improved texture and firmness, as well as aloe vera and hydrolysed silk.
