The ReFa COLLAGEN ENRICH+ contains GABA,
a functional ingredient that keeps the skin elastic.1
The drink's key component is a readily absorbed
kind of collagen called "Shimicolla."
Collagen is said to account for as much as 30%
of the proteins that form our skin, hair, nails,
and the rest of our bodies as well, making it an
important component to supplement efficiently every day.
So, to feel healthier and suppler every day, how about
getting into a habit that's all about care from within?
A new care habit that's all about supplementing your skin's elasticity from the inside.
What ReFa focused on was GABA, a functional ingredient that keeps the skin elastic.1
Food with Function Claims（Functional ingredient: GABA）
This product contains GABA. GABA has been reported to help the skin stay elastic and healthy, and is suitable for people who are troubled by dry skin.
Cell test: Real-time PCR testing was used to measure the expression of genes related to skin elasticity in normal human dermal fibroblasts (from a 38-year-old) that had been exposed to barley lactic acid fermentation liquid GABA.
Human test: A double-blind, parallel-group, comparative study was conducted to examine whether taking barley lactic acid fermentation liquid GABA continuously for 8 weeks could benefit women suffering from stress-related skin irritation.
Note: The collagen in the product is not a functional ingredient.
To make Shimicolla, we use only highly pure collagen from the first extract obtained in the purification process. Being low in impurities, it gets absorbed into the body quickly. Ideally, you want collagen that'll be absorbed into your body as efficiently as possible, so high purity is an extremely desirable property. ReFa is very proud to have come up with a kind of collagen that penetrates that's absorbed as readily as this.
Achieving such highly pure collagen made us all the more determined to make sure it got delivered the right way. To that end, we pursued molecular size as a key factor toward easy absorption into the body. The result is a high concentration of 5,000 mg per cup (15 mL). We've also added vitamin C to help the collagen get absorbed effectively.
