Collagène vegan : info ou intox ? - MyPureSkin

Vegan collagen: info or poison?

The response chosen by some to the ethical problems posed by the consumption of animal proteins, the vegan lifestyle requires a targeted choice in all areas of nutrition.

Food supplements to support aging, directly concerned by the issue, have therefore gradually seen the arrival of newcomers in the world of nutricosmetics.

Declared “vegan”, these supplementation products not only claim impeccable ethics but also go further: the collagen they contain is “not of animal origin”.

Is this really possible? Where does the collagen in so-called “vegan” food supplements come from? Is there a real alternative that is closer to vegan values? The MyPureSkin team has carried out the investigation for you.

Collagen: an animal molecule in essence

To answer these questions, we must first establish an indisputable fact: collagen is a protein produced by animal species.

Having no need for collagen in any way, plants neither produce nor consume it.

It is therefore impossible to find collagen that does not come from the animal kingdom.

Why do animals produce collagen?

Abundantly present in animals which produce it to have a structure on which to build their bones, tendons, muscles and other organs, collagen is a large protein, considered to be the most abundant in mammals.

But what is “vegan” collagen anyway?

Based on this observation, the question remains: how do we obtain vegan collagen? It is in fact on the notion of animal welfare that this concept is based.

Indeed, marketers have only been able to note, over the past few decades, the rise of vegan sensibilities and the lifestyles that accompany them.

Excluding ethical risks from the equation, some engineers have managed to genetically modify certain bacteria (notably E. coli) and yeasts (such as Pichia pastoris) to force them to produce a form of collagen very close to that produced by the human body. . Vegan collagen was born.

Vegan collagen: an innovation... with still uncertain benefits?

By accommodating arguments echoing vegan trends, the brands marketing the products derived from them, however, forget to specify an essential fact: vegan collagen necessarily comes from a GMO.

This element is all the more important since in the era of innovations in agri-food engineering, there is still little perspective on the long-term consequences of frequent consumption of GMOs.

Furthermore, the mere presence of GMOs can be a barrier for many vegans, whose consumption habits are often accompanied by a search for “better eating” labeled “organic” and “natural”.

Finally, studies looking specifically at the risks and benefits of such collagen are also still very few in number and it therefore remains difficult to evaluate at the moment the risk/benefit ratio of consuming vegan collagen over several years.

Death of vegan collagen: what proven solution?

The mirage of vegan collagen is gradually losing its luster as consumers realize the true face of this molecule produced by animal organisms.

But isn't there a solution for those who wish to continue to benefit from a natural ingredient while limiting their impact on animal welfare as much as possible?

Moving away from questionable solutions: bovine and porcine collagens out of the running

A source of unsystematic but very frequent animal cruelty, the food industry has been the main supplier of collagen for decades.

Extracted from the carcasses of pigs and cows, the macromolecule often came from animals whose living and dying conditions were difficult to determine.

In addition, epidemic episodes such as those of “mad cow disease” have led the population to ask more and more questions about the risk/benefit ratio of substances extracted from bovine and porcine carcasses.

Marine collagen: a meaningful choice

It is in such a context that marine collagen has gradually taken off.

Obtained from scales and skin of farmed fish, marine collagen from nutricosmetics such as MyCollagenLift has the advantage of avoiding the ethical problems posed by bovine and porcine collagens.

Furthermore, marine collagen is a proven solution, with known and controlled effects, compared to vegan collagen.

In this, marine collagen has proven to be a discreet revolution but very appreciated by both consumers and manufacturers.

Marine collagen peptides: ideal shape and weight
