USED IN COSMETICS INDUSTRY
Collagen has been used in cosmetic products for many years for effectively improving the feel and looks of skin, hair and fingernails.
However, there is now a new internal application – and one with a more sustainable effect. For collagen makes up some 30 % of the total protein in the human body. It occurs especially in connective tissue. Its enormous tensile strength has a positive effect on the skin; this becomes evident when taken in conjunction with products containing the new Muslim International collagen protein HALAL GELATIN® where the skin becomes tighter and smoother. Products containing HALAL GELATIN® also help to delay the natural aging process of connective tissue.
HALAL GELATIN®opens up completely new possibilities for the development of innovative new cosmetic products. The natural protein can be used to supplement all types of foodstuffs: liquids, solids, film-coated tablets, beauty drinks, and instant coffee and even chocolate.
In 2009, neutral cosmetics generated a worldwide turnover of some 2.1 billion dollars; by 2015 this is expected to increase to 5.62 billion dollars.
