We know drinking water is good for your skin. The thing you eat can affect your skin just as much as the products you apply. This isn’t new news. But what is new is the number of products aimed at healing, nurturing and supporting our inner health. Collagen powders aren't necessarily new in beauty. Though how readily available they are and how good they taste is. From our guts to our muscles, tendons and connective tissues; collagen works synergistically throughout the whole body.
Increasing your ingestible collagen intake can lead to increased overall health and vitality. As well as aiding in hair growth and health, the skin’s own collagen production and nail strength. Collagen is now more readily available than ever. With beauty brands diversifying into inner beauty. Here we have founded up some of the newest Australian brands’ releases to hit the market.
The first time Mukti have ventured into the world of ingestible beauty. The collagen powder is formulated using Type 1 collagen, which is derived from fish skin and scales. Combining the collagen with a blend of jerusalem artichoke for gut health, a blend of berries that taste delicious and also provide a dose of antioxidants, as well as aloe vera for hydration and kakadu plum for Vitamin C.
A short chain amino acid collagen, the Imbibe “Miracle Collagen” is 100% bioactive and improves the hair’s structure and decreases breakage whilst also increasing skin’s elasticity and reduces wrinkles. Blended with a complex of 18 amino acids. Completely odorless and tasteless this powder can be added to any drink, yoghurt, or breakfast bowl to increase it’s health benefits.
Formulated from marine collagen, each sachet of Toka Lab’s collagen powder contains “2 grams of superfoods, over one billion probiotic cultures, and 1,000 micrograms of biotin.” You can choose from either a Japanese matcha or turmeric latte flavoured powder. Each provides additional anti-inflammatory properties. Drink in water, your morning smoothie, or added to milk with a dash of honey.
This brand is technically from New Zealand, but we consider them part of the Australian family. The cream it suggests? This comes from coconut milk. Making this collagen powder the equivalent of a morning latte. Derived from type 1 and 3 collagen powders, there are 10 grams of collagen per serving. If coconut isn’t your preference you can also choose from a whole milk version, or a caramel flavoured - in both vegan and non-vegan options. Morning breakfast just got healthier.
Launched in 2014, Vida Glow founder Anna Lahey took what she saw in Japan and brought it to the Australian market. Produced from all natural marine collagen - using the scales of ocean fish - the powder has a 90% absorption rate. With the brand only using low molecular weight hydrolysed collagen. The original powder has no taste and zero smell. However you can also choose from pineapple, peach, blueberry and mango varieties.
