Minerva Research Labs the makers of Gold Collagen®
February 22, 2018
Created in 2009, Minerva Research Labs, the company behind Gold Collagen®, has become a renowned player in the health and beauty industry. The scientifically developed, clinically tested range of products redefines skincare to fit modern lifestyles.
Whilst on a trip to the Land of the Rising Sun, Tony Sanguinetti, founder and Managing Director of Minerva Research Labs Ltd, became fascinated by the Japanese reverence of women in their art of beauty. He noticed that a holistic skincare approach was key to their youthful appearance and that taking collagen drinks to supplement their diet was an essential part of their daily beauty regimes.
Understanding the growing interest for healthy nutrition, Tony Sanguinetti was convinced that “you are what you eat and drink” is more than a simple statement and could be the underlying vision of a new holistic approach to health and beauty.
He created Minerva Research Labs with the sole ambition to revolutionize the way consumers reconnect beauty and well-being with healthier habits to feel good today and healthily young tomorrow.
This is why the in-house expert team of doctors, nutritionists and scientists is at the heart of Minerva Research Labs. The R&D team conducts an intensive research on the versatility of collagen – a key protein of the skin’s mattress as well as a powerful regenerating ingredient – led Minerva Research Labs to the launch of Gold Collagen®, a range of clinically tested liquid beauty supplements to provide a healthy solution to enhance beautiful skin, hair and nails from the inside out. Pioneering the collagen-based liquid beauty supplement category, this scientifically developed, clinically tested and carefully formulated range reinvents skincare and nutriceuticals to fit with modern lifestyles.
Now present in over 20 countries, with a diverse portfolio of solutions from oral intakes to topical formulations, our team of experts keep searching new ingredients, technologies or delivery systems to develop new products to help men and women live their lives to the full.
The Gold Collagen® range includes innovative, clinically tested beauty supplements and topical products to address different consumer needs. Pure Gold Collagen® helps fight the early signs of ageing, Gold Clooagen® Forte helps combat the more advanced signs of ageing and oxidative stress and Active Gold Collagen® helps promote muscle and joint health as well as the youthful appearance of skin. Gold Collagen® Defence tablets help protect against collagen loss and the new Gold Collagen® Anti-Ageing Volumiser to hydrate and protect lips and help restore the lips’ natural volume while protecting against external damage. This is the new addition to the topical range launched last year in the UK with the Gold Collagen® Hydrogel Mask to help support skin hydration and radiance.
Minerva Research Labs Ltd has been recognised as a major contributor to the UK export market in the third prestigious Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100 by being awarded 26th place in the ranking in 2017.
Why do I need to take Gold Collagen®?
As we move into our 20s and beyond, we lose about 1.5% of our collagen every year. This is partly due to the natural, unavoidable ageing process, and external factors. Pollution, dehydration, smoking and perhaps most of all, the effects of the sun, challenge our skin 24 hours a day. Just 20 minutes exposure to strong sunlight, with no protection, will cause significant damage to our collagen; breaking it down into disorganised fragments that can no longer support the smooth skin surface. Over the years the cells that top up our collagen levels, fibroblasts, lose their ability to repair the damage and our skin literally begins to subside. As a result, deeper crevasses develop, and fine lines slowly morph into deep grooves and our wrinkles take shape.
Nothing will stop us ageing, but we can slow down collagen degradation by both avoiding, and protecting ourselves, from those toxic external factors such as the sun and air pollution. We can also treat existing wrinkling and prevent future wrinkles developing by nourishing the dermis and its precious fibroblasts. Good hydration is as important as a balanced diet containing lots of anti-oxidants, which break down the toxins produced by those external damaging agents. Helping to maintain high collagen levels in the skin is also now understood to be vital. Oral hydrolysed collagen, particularly in liquid form, is an important new way to pamper fibroblasts and keep them pumping out the collagen.
What does Gold Collagen® do?
This revolutionary collagen supplement is based on a unique blend of active ingredients such as hydrolysed collagen and hyaluronic acid, vitamins and minerals, chosen for their anti-ageing benefits, specifically developed to maintain healthy skin, hair and nails by boosting the natural collagen production and increasing skin hydration as well as elasticity.
Gold Collagen® liquid supplements are designed to fight the signs of ageing and to reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, up to 20 times more effective than collagen tablets and pills, readily absorbed by the body and have a pleasant taste.
Hydrolysed collagen, one of the key active ingredients, remains intact during the digestive process and is easily absorbed into the bloodstream. Once it reaches fibroblast and chondrocyte cells, it stimulates them to produce new collagen, elastin and moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid, essential elements for the health of skin and joints. Gold Collagen® products are formulated with the highest quality hydrolysed marine collagen, made up of small peptides containing short chains of amino acids, which makes it easier to absorb. Hydrolysed collagen helps the body to form new collagen structures. It provides the amino acid building blocks and also stimulates the natural production of new collagen, elastin and moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid molecules.
Gold Collagen® liquid supplements contain a powerful bland of active ingredients that allow you to take care of your skin, hair and nail from within with just a sip, it contains 5grams of hydrolysed collagen which is the equivalent of 6 tablets, in addition to the other ingredients which is about 4 to 5 extra tablets.
