Collagen isn’t just a buzzy beauty ingredient—it’s a hardworking, naturally occurring protein made up of amino acids that helps the body’s connective tissues. It’s known to boost hair, skin, nail, bone and joint health. Because of its overall wellness benefits, it’s popping everywhere, and we’re willing to bet that includes your pantry.
By now you’re probably pretty familiar with Vital Proteins, the brand that’s made collagen easy to consume as an ingestible powdered supplement that blends right into your meals. If you like the results you’ve seen from mixing two scoops of Vital into your morning coffee, we want to encourage you to expand your collagen horizons with these ten other beauty products that all feature it as a main ingredient—from serums to elixirs.
PSA: It’s worth mentioning that while many collagen products on the market are sourced from bovine, a lot of options are marine- or plant-based. So if you’re vegan or vegetarian (or pescatarian; looking at you, sushi lovers), don’t shy away from collagen products. Just make a point to notice where it’s sourced.
