How do I know if I need collagen supplement?
People living in equatorial countries such as Singapore have a higher exposure to UV rays. In a fast-paced environment, coupled with an unhealthy diet; city-dwellers are more prone to skin dryness, dark spots and wrinkles. Research confirms that sunlight and free radicals are major causes of collagen damage and premature ageing in men and women. Collagen depletion will cause the skin to lose its firmness and result in the appearance of fine lines. Besides the skin, collagen is also essential to other parts of the body. It is better to replenish the body’s collagen reserves through collagen supplements as foods that are rich in collagen are usually high in fats.
How can I achieve lasting skin fairness and clarity?
There are many ways to achieve fair and clear skin. In addition to skincare, it is important to protect your skin against harmful UV rays with a suitable sun block. Having adequate sleep and adopting a healthy diet are also contributing factors to clear, healthy complexion. AFC Collagen White Beauty is a skin whitening formula rich in essential nutrients to combat skin pigmentation and melanin formation; to restore clear and fair complexion.
What makes AFC Collagen White Beauty an effective oral beauty supplement?
AFC Collagen White Beauty is a triple whitening formula developed with proprietary MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides and enriched with Glutathione, L-Cystine and Vitamin C, to nourish and improve skin’s imperfections. Thanks to a specialised hydrolysis process, the ultra-small molecular collagen structure is 1.5 times more absorbable than regular collagen, and hence more effectively delivered to the areas where the skin needs most.
MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides – Superb collagen absorption to intensively firm and hydrate skin
Glutathione Yeast Extract – Improves skin metabolism, repairs damaged cells and reduces pigmentation
L-Cystine and Vitamin C – Protects cells from toxins, lightens scars and brightens complexion
How soon can I see results?
Depending on user’s condition, the result of Collagen White Beauty may vary between individuals. Some people experience smoother and brighter complexion in one week; others may required a longer time to see results. Generally, it takes about 30 days for the skin to be completely renewed.
Do I have to consume AFC Collagen White Beauty regularly?
Yes. It is essential to consume it regularly to see results. Taking AFC Collagen White Beauty daily helps to reverse the decline of collagen in your body and combat unwanted toxins and free radicals. There are no known side effects and it is safe for long-term consumption.
In fact, its natural formula with Glutathione and L-Cystine supports healthy detoxification and protects the body against oxidative stress.
Low molecular weight peptides
MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides is produced by proprietary enzymatic hydrolysis. Approximately 89% of collagen peptides have molecular weight ≤ 3000 Daltons, resulting in superior absorption across the intestines into the bloodstream, which will then be transported to the cells for restoration of collagen levels.
- Free of antibiotics and pesticide residues
- Almost free of typical collagen smell and taste
- Superior absorption
Superior absorption of MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides
In this test, male rats aged 11 weeks were orally administered 500 mg/kg MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides with molecular weight around 1,000 Daltons and 8.27% hydroxyproline (Hyp) or high molecular collagen with molecular weight around 10,000 Daltons and 12.0% Hyp. MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides resulted in greater absorption than high molecular collagen.
Research proven health benefits of MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides
Enhances growth of fibroblasts
Fibroblasts are the cells that produce collagen, which are responsible for the structure, firmness, and elasticity of the skin. In an in vitro study, MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides was found to increase fibroblast proliferation in a dose-dependent manner. The effects were equivalent to effects obtained using collagen derived from fish skin.

Another in vitro study showed that MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides have the strongest stimulating effects on fibroblasts proliferation, compared to other fish and porcine collagens.

In another in vitro study, MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides was added to fibroblasts and cell proliferation was measured. MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides increases the proliferation of fibroblasts, while Pro-Hyp and Gly-Hyp dipeptides did not show remarkably fibroblast proliferative effect.
Promotes wound healing
During wound healing process, inflammatory response stimulates fibroblast migration and proliferation in the wound area, which produces an extracellular matrix including collagen that is required for wound healing.
In this test, a wound model with a defined wound gap of 0.9 mm was created in vitro to evaluate migratory and proliferation rates of fibroblasts using microscopic imaging.
Control (collagen without additives), MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides with average molecular weight of 1000 Daltons, tri-peptides derived from fish from company A and peptides derived from fish with average molecular weight of 3000 Daltons from company B were used for comparison. Compared to the rest, MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides showed the fastest migration to the affected site and the most effective closing of the gap.

After cultured for 30 hours, the migration speed of fibroblasts was compared, and MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides showed 4.2 times faster migration speed than control. Among the three peptides, MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides showed the fastest migration speed, suggesting the effectiveness of MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides in skin repair, including wound, UV damage and others.
Suppresses collagen and elastin breakdown
Collagenases are enzymes that cleave the peptide bonds in collagen, thereby breaking down collagen which could potentially lead to prolonged skin damage and wrinkle formation. Meanwhile, elastinase breaks down elastin, which is a protein that contributes elasticity to the connective tissues.
In this test, the inhibitory rate of collagen and elastin breakdown was compared between MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides and dipeptides proline-hydroxyproline (Pro-Hyp) and hydroxyproline-glycine (Hyp-Gly), as well as NNGH (collagenase inhibitor), which acts as a positive control. MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides suppressed collagenase and elastase activity, while neither dipeptides showed any collagenase inhibitory activity. These findings suggest the potential protective effects of MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides against decreased skin elasticity and wrinkle formation.
In addition, MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides demonstrated inhibitory effects on neutrophil elastase, which is an enzyme that contribute to extracellular matrix damage induced by long-term UV exposure, accelerating wrinkle formation. Meanwhile, dipeptides Pro-Hyp and Gly-Hyp showed low inhibitory effects. These findings suggest the beneficial effects of MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides in protecting against wrinkle formation.
In this study, 10 women in 20s to 50s were orally administered 5,000 mg MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides daily for 8 weeks and the skin condition was monitored before taking, after 4 weeks and 8 weeks of administration. In addition, a questionnaire about their skin conditions was conducted after the test. After taking MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides for 8 weeks, all the subjects showed an improvement to the wrinkles. The maximum depth, average depth, maximum width, and number of wrinkles were decreased by 24%, 17%, 12% and 33%, respectively.
In addition, MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides help improve the skin texture. Below showed one of the case studies. Before taking MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides, the skin texture was impaired in the white parts. However, the skin texture was remarkably improved after 4 and 8 weeks of intake.
Skin cell turnover is the process of producing new skin cells to replace the existing ones, which is vital to help keep the skin smooth and healthy. Before taking MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides, the outermost layer of the epidermis was non-uniform, but this was improved after 4 and 8 weeks of intake. This excellent skin cell turnover could be attributed to the improvement of water-retaining and barrier capacity of the skin.
Skin moisture is important to reduce the risk of developing extreme dryness or oiliness, as well as helps the skin to repair constantly. For subjects greater than 30s, 4 out of 6 subjects observed an increased in moisture content by approximately 12% after 8 weeks of taking MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides.
According to questionnaires, 7 out of 10 subjects noticed an improvement to the dry skin, suggesting the beneficial effects of MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides on the dry skin.
Sun damage is a leading cause of dark spots. When our skin suffers UV damage, it produces melanin, which moves upwards to the skin’s surface and causes the skin to darken.
Normally the darkening disappears once regular skin turnover occurs. However, if the damage is severe, skin turnover becomes irregular and causes the dark pigment to remain. These are what we called dark spots.
A comprehensive formula developed with proprietary MCP-EX Marine Collagen Peptides, enriched with Glutathione Yeast Extract, L-Cystine and Vitamin C, AFC Collagen White Beauty combats the first signs of aging with these skin-loving nutrients, helping you to achieve the fair and radiant-looking skin you’ve always desire.
