Collagen - What is it and what is it good for?

What is Collagen?

Getting down to the basics, let’s start first with what collagen is. Believe it or not, collagen actually already exists in every human body! It’s a protein that our bodies produce and it's found in our bones, skin, and muscles.


Natural Collagen vs. Synthetic Collagen

Natural collagen is the collagen that our bodies naturally produce and it's suggested that we have at least 16 different types of collagen in us. Synthetic collagen, on the other hand, is collagen that we add to our bodies. We take it in supplements like in our Xlash Hair Growth Formula or in skincare products like our Xlash Collagen Night Mask!


Basic Collagen Benefits and What it’s Good For

Collagen essentially helps with strong bones and supports the skin’s structure. Meaning it may help your skin keep its loving, youthful glow. It is said that collagen helps and supports your skin in retaining elasticity and softness. As time passes our bodies actually produce less collagen which is why people have started to work collagen into their everyday diets and skincare routines!


Adding Collagen to Your Skincare Routine

There is more than one way to add collagen into your everyday routine. At Xlash we’ve created the Collagen Night Mask for an evening boost of collagen! This mask uses acacia collagen which helps moisturize and hydrate the skin to give it a replenished glow. When you apply a thin layer of this mask before you go to sleep it uses acacia collagen to soothe your skin through all hours of the night. Then, when you wake up in the morning you can rinse the mask off with warm water and say hello to noticeably new and refreshed feeling skin!


Types of Collagen We Know & Love

The Xlash Collagen Night Mask features Acacia Collagen but there are other types of synthetic collagen that are used in skincare products and supplements. Just to name a couple: Marine Collagen, Acacia Collagen, and Bovine Collagen are a few popular forms used in skincare and supplements.


Marine Collagen

At Xlash we’ve used Marine Collagen and Acacia Collagen in our products. Marine Collagen is produced from the skin of fish. We use marine collagen in our Xlash Hair Growth Formula to support hair in growing strong and thick during its natural growth process.


Acacia Collagen - Vegan Collagen

Acacia Collagen, found in our Collagen Night Mask, is produced from beautiful acacia trees and is vegan and cruelty free. The Collagen Night Mask uses vegan collagen, squalane and bitter cherry extract to hydrate the skin overnight, helping it retain its bouncy, youthful glow.


Summing it All Up: What is Collagen Good For?

Now that we’ve gone into detail, here are some key takeaways about collagen and what it's good for!


Collagen Benefits and Key Takeaways


  • Collagen can support the strength of your bones, skin, and muscles!



  • When used in skincare it can help hydrate the skin and retain moisture.

Collagen - How can I start using it?

When it comes to this amazing ingredient there's no need to be intimidated. Incorporating collagen into your routine, whether through vitamins or skincare has been suggested to have a super positive effect on your skin and body! So, why not incorporate collagen into the steps of your routine? You can simply start here by exploring the Xlash products that include collagen: the Collagen Night Mask and Hair Growth Formula, and begin your own, new experience with this super trendy (and supportive) ingredient.
