What is collagen?
Collagen (Greek work : kolla, meaning : glue) is a protein that provides structure to various parts of the body, especially skin. It is a major building block of skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones. It can be thought of as a 'glue' that holds these things together.
Collagen is made of densely packed fibres and provides structure to skin, fibrous cartilage, connective tissue and tendons.
It is found in layers of the skin.
