It is a transparent liquid produced from yeast and microscopic mushrooms. The product is non-GMO and biodegradable.
The primary function of Collagen Boost & Bronze is to moisturise and nourish the skin . As it also contains Hyaluronic Acid which is known to be a superb skin hydrator, it will plump up the skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
As an added bonus, it has a protective effect on the skin, which helps to prevent signs of ageing caused by sun exposure.
It does not need direct UV light to work so it will also work in the shade to a lesser extent making it very useful for daily lotions and sports products to help build a gradual tan effortlessly.
It is NOT a fake tan - you must have UV light for this effect to happen and it should NOT be considered an SPF product.
The individual materials that make up Collagen Boost & Bronze are listed on the Cosmetic Ingredient Database (Cosing).
