Want healthy, glowing skin that shines from within?
It’s no secret that looking after our skin is essential, particularly as we get older. The foundation of youthful, supple skin is about so much more than applying face creams. It actually starts on the inside, with collagen.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, making it critical for skin, muscles and bones. An often unknown fact is that collagen production declines as we get older, leading to an increase in wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity. According to research, by the age of 30, we only have about 50% of the collagen we had when we were 18.
This is why making collagen a part of our daily diet is so vital!
We created our GLOW Marine Collagen Hydrolysed Powder to improve skin elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles. Further adding to its hero status, collagen acts as an antioxidant and is also known for providing the foundation for strong connective tissues, joints and bones.
As with all our SWIISH WELLNESS products, we focus on the highest quality, most effective ingredients possible.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE GLOW POWDER?
Our GLOW Marine Collagen Hydrolysed Powder is comprised of 100% hydrolysed marine collagen.
WHY IS GLOW SO AMAZING FOR SKIN?
Our GLOW Marine Collagen Hydrolysed Powder is 100% collagen and collagen is the main structural protein found in skin. But at around the age of 21, collagen production in the body starts to diminish. Then by the age of 30, the quantity of collagen in the body is approx. half of what it was at 18. Yes, we know what you’re thinking – how unfair. We agree! Now because collagen cannot be reproduced by the body, it needs to be consumed. Hence why collagen supplementation is so important for fresh, glowing skin.
WHAT DOES GLOW MARINE COLLAGEN TASTE LIKE?
Our GLOW Marine Collagen Hydrolysed Powder is flavourless. Some people who have a heightened sense of smell may be able to taste it. Being flavourless means that you can add it to any hot or cold drink or to foods and still get all the benefits, without the taste being altered.
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COLLAGEN AND GELATIN?
Both collagen and gelatin are sources of high protein that contain the same amino acids, however, gelatin is made by partially hydrolyzing collagen. “What does that mean?” we hear you ask. Well, this basically means that the collagen has been added to water and heated to the extent that the long chain amino acids have started to break down and have absorbed enough water to form a gel, known as gelatin. Collagen though, and in particular our GLOW Marine Collagen Hydrolysed Powder is fully hydrolyzed collagen which means that the long chain amino acids have been broken down further so that is soluble in water and most importantly - easily absorbed by the body when consumed.
WHAT DOES HYDROLYZED MEAN?
Hydrolyzed means that the collagen has been subject to a chemical process known as hydrolysis whereby long chain amino acids have been broken down into smaller molecular components called small chain amino acids, using water. We know that was quite a sciency answer. But in general terms what is amazing about that is that the collagen it is now soluble in water and therefore more easily absorbed by the body when consumed.
DO YOUR PRODUCTS CONTAIN ANY HEAVY METALS? ARE THEY TESTED?
All raw ingredients which are either made in Australia or imported must adhere to a strict set of guidelines for the content of heavy metals set by each states food authority. This means that all raw ingredients are tested and that no ingredients that do not meet the strict parameters are used in production. This is an Australia wide requirement and a food law that SWIISH will always adhere to, ensuring our products are of not only the highest quality nutritionally but also the safest.
I ALREADY GET A LOT OF PROTEIN IN MY DIET SO DO I STILL NEED COLLAGEN?
In easy to understand terms - not all proteins are the same. There are over 28 different types of collagen, but the one you need for amazing skin is a Type 1 collagen. So in order to get that great glowing skin, you need to feed your skin, from the inside – with collagen.
In more sciency terms - Collagen is almost 100% protein and being the most abundant form of protein the body, makes up about 25%-35% by weight. A protein is basically a chain of amino acids, however, not all amino acids are the same. The body uses about seventeen different types of amino acids and these all have different uses by the body. Different types of collagen have different combinations of amino acids which is why there are over 28 different types of collagen. So not all protein is the same which is why even if you consume a lot of protein already you might benefit from supplemental collagen intake.
WHERE DOES YOUR COLLAGEN COME FROM?
We pride ourselves on using only the highest quality ingredients in our SWIISH Wellness range. When it comes to our GLOW Hydrolysed Collagen Powders, we have partnered with a renowned world leader to ensure that our collagen is manufactured in a sustainable and ethical manner.

The collagen used in our GLOW range is produced in Europe in ISO 9001 and FSSC 22000 quality accredited manufacturing facilities, thus ensuring the highest quality standards are applied. It’s then proudly packaged right here in Australia, also under the strictest of standards.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE GLOW?
Our GLOW Marine Collagen Hydrolysed Powder is designed to be taken every day. Being all natural it is safe for everyday use. In fact, you will see faster results if you take it daily.
CAN I TAKE GLOW MARINE COLLAGEN & GLOW HOT CHOCOLATE AT THE SAME TIME?
Yes you can! We generally have ours separately. As a guide, we take GLOW Marine Collagen in the morning, (you can mix GLOW Marine in with your SUPERGREENS, coffee, tea, juice or smoothie). Then we take GLOW Hot Chocolate in the afternoon. This helps curb those sugary afternoon cravings. We suggest collagen can be consumed twice daily.
HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
According to extensive scientific research done, you can expect to see results in 3 – 4 weeks of taking GLOW, if taken on a daily basis. You should see the skin become more hydrated, then a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles in by about 6-8 weeks. By the 10-12 week mark most notice an increase in skin elasticity and firmness.
We recommend taking GLOW Marine Collagen Hydrolysed Powder each day, to ensure best results.
Taking GLOW Marine Collagen Hydrolysed Powder more than once a day will accelerate results. If you are taking more than one serving per day, be sure to spread them out, rather than taking all servings at once, as this ensures maximum absorption.
CAN YOU MIX GLOW MARINE COLLAGEN & THE SUPERGREEN SUPERFOOD POWDER TOGETHER?
Yes you can – many of our SWIISH WELLNESS customers and SWIISH team do this daily. You can mix GLOW in water, juice, coffee or any liquid or food of your choice.
CAN I HAVE THE GLOW MARINE COLLAGEN HYDROLYSED POWDER WHILST PREGNANT OR BREAST FEEDING?
Some baby doctors prefer that you get their A-OK before starting. So whilst collagen is safe we suggest getting the thumbs up from your doctor.
CAN I TAKE GLOW POWDER WITH XYZ MEDICATION?
All the ingredients in our GLOW Marine Collagen Hydrolysed Powder are natural and contain nothing artificial. But as you can imagine everyone’s situation is different and as we are not doctors, we are unable to provide exact advice on whether our GLOW Marine Collagen Hydrolysed Powder is safe to consume whilst taking your specific medication. It’s best to check with your healthcare professional, as everybody’s situation is different.
WHY IS MY GLOW MARINE COLLAGEN POWDER TUB HALF FULL?
Due to the consistency of the GLOW Marine Powder being extremely fine, the tub of powder that you receive may be half full. This is due to the GLOW Marine Collagen Powder, having been quite compressed when packaged into the container. Please be assured that your full dose of collagen is in there as we sell by weight and not volume. If we were to put it into smaller tubs they would be overflowing and we would not be able to fill it with the weight of the product specified on the packaging.
