Glow Marine Hydrolysed Collagen Powder
THE MOST SUPERIOR COLLAGEN FOR RADIANT GLOWING SKIN
The foundation of youthful, supple skin is about so much more than applying face creams. It actually starts on the inside, with collagen. 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 to help improve skin elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles. We use only the world’s most superior collagen, backed by science and extensively researched and rigorously tested, for its efficacy. 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. Always read the label and follow the directions for use. Please check with your doctor before taking supplements, starting or stopping any medication, or if you have any general concerns.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body with over 28 known types. Of these, Type 1 collagen is involved in skin, hair, nail, and gut health predominantly, and is the type of collagen used in our GLOW Hydrolysed Collagen Powder. The other types of collagen are involved in other processes in the body such as joint, cartilage, and bone health. Studies show that 10g per day of collagen is recommended for helping maintain skin strength and elasticity. One serving of any of our GLOW Collagen Powders equates to 5g of collagen, which is why we suggest two servings per day for optimal support. This 10g daily amount not only provides your body with adequate collagen, but assists it in generating its own. When collagen peptides are ingested, they stimulate fibroblast proliferation – the process responsible for collagen production. (Fibroblasts are a type of cell that synthesises collagen. Other than contributing to skin health, they also play an important role in wound and injury healing).

As well as helping improve the texture and complexion of skin, collagen also contains prolyl-hydroxyproline which has been shown to trigger hyaluronic acid production. Subsequently, this increases skin’s water content and hydration – particularly important in the cooler/dryer months when dry skin can become an issue.

Signs of ageing
A recent systematic review looked at 11 major studies that assessed the use of collagen for skin health and signs of ageing. The results demonstrated a significant improvement in skin elasticity, hydration, and dermal collagen density (the amount of collagen found in skin), as well as wound healing and overall signs of ageing. The amount of collagen supplementation examined in these studies was 2.5g-10g daily. These findings also showed that collagen supplementation is generally considered safe with no reported adverse side effects.

The reason hydrolysed protein (including collagen) is a far more efficient and effective source of collagen is that it has been broken down into single amino acids (via a chemical reaction that uses water molecules) making it easily dissolvable in water. After consumption, these hydrolysed collagen peptides take only approximately 15 minutes to enter the bloodstream. From here, studies have shown it takes only 30-45 minutes before they’re then found in the skin matrix (the area that produces collagen just below the skin surface).
As well as being a vital protein for maintaining skin strength and elasticity, collagen is also incredibly important for gut health. Studies have shown that collagen can improve a dysfunctioning gut barrier (such as leaky gut) by enhancing tight junctions. Think of it like having puzzle pieces that fit perfectly together, that way nothing can get through your gut barrier that shouldn’t! When tight junctions aren’t functioning properly allowing foreign bodies to enter the gut, this can cause pain, bloating, and inflammation – collagen can help alleviate this.

What does it taste like?
Hydrolysed collagen is completely soluble and virtually tasteless. Some people who have a heightened sense of smell may be able to taste it, however, if consumed with a liquid other than water it is typically unnoticeable.
What does hydrolysed mean?
Our collagen has been through a process known as hydrolysis whereby long-chain amino acids have been broken down using water into smaller molecular components called small-chain amino acids. As a result, it is now soluble in water and more easily absorbed by the body when consumed. The common term for this is “bioavailability”. These small-chain amino acids (also known as peptides) are absorbed by the body to help regenerate lost collagen such as the collagen that occurs naturally in the deepest layers of skin known as the dermis. This in turn helps reduce wrinkles caused by ageing.
Where does your collagen come from?
The collagen used in our GLOW Marine powder 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 long before I see results?
According to extensive scientific research, you can expect to see results within 4 weeks of taking it daily. You should see skin become more hydrated, then an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles by about 6-8 weeks. By the 10-12 week mark, most people notice an increase in skin elasticity and firmness.
Can I have it while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Our GLOW Marine Collagen is safe to consume while pregnant and breastfeeding. However, as everyone’s situation is different, we recommend that you check with your healthcare professional to see if this powder would be beneficial for you. Please refer to the nutritional information & ingredients list.
Can I take it with other medications?
GLOW Marine is all-natural and it contains nothing artificial. We are unable to provide exact advice on whether it is safe to consume whilst taking other specific medications. As everyone’s situation is different, we recommend that you check with your healthcare professional to see if this powder would be beneficial for you. Please refer to the nutritional information & ingredients list.
Why is my collagen tub half full?
Please note that due to the consistency of the GLOW Marine Collagen Powder being extremely fine, the tub of powder that you receive may be half full. This is due to the GLOW Powder being compressed when packaged into the container. Please also note that the container itself is a larger size than our other 150g containers such as SUPERGREEN and SLEEP Powders.
