Clinically-studied anti-aging, hydration & wrinkle reduction from a marine-based collagen for supplement, beverage and functional food products

Collactive™ Collagen Complex is a 100% marine-based, allnatural ingredient composed of collagen and elastin peptides formulated in the same ratio found naturally in skin. Collactive combines the two main constituents of the extracellular matrix and has an anti-wrinkle synergistic action: elastin fibers give the dermis suppleness that completes collagen fibers tensile strength. A study on Collactive showed a synergistic anti-wrinkle action, stimulating skin to lift and tone sagging areas and minimize lines and wrinkles, while increasing skin moisture retention. With a low molecular weight, Collactive is water-soluble and fully digestible, making it an ideal anti-aging ingredient for a wide variety of beauty-from-within formulations

Collactive is a sustainably produced ingredient provided by CTPP-Copalis, representing a cooperative of fisheries in Boulogne-surmer, France - Europe’s leading port for fish processing. Collactive is fully traceable and sustainably produced.

Collactive collagen and elastin oligopeptides stimulate the biosynthesis of the main dermis constituents to lift and tone slacking areas. Researchers used a Skin Image Analyser® (S.I.A.) (Monaderm, Monaco) to measure the number and depth of wrinkles.  Skin hydration was measured as well. Questionnaires were used throughout the clinical study and showed excellent tolerance to Collactive.

After 28 days, Collactive supplementation resulted in a significant decrease (19%) of the number of deep wrinkles in 71% of the subjects. The level was stabilized at day 84. In the placebo group, an increase in the number of deep wrinkles was noted at both day 28 and day 84. In addition, Collactive caused a moisturizing effect on the skin.


The moisturizing effect of Collactive is supported by a clinical study involving 44 women over 40 years old. The results show an increase of the entire epidermis hydration (+8%) after oral administration of Collactive for three months.
