Approved health claims
VERISOL® is gaining international recognition, as the beauty-from-within ingredient now it has approved health claims around the world.
Collagen supplements in Brazil that deliver a daily dose of just 2.5g of the specific Bioactive Collagen Peptides VERISOL® became the first to be allowed to use skin health claims under ANVISA’s new rules back in December 2020. The announcement followed ANVISA’s introduction of specific regulations for food supplements in 2018, when manufacturers were called to prove the efficacy of their products.
VERISOL® comprises pure collagen peptides that stimulate fibroblast cells in the dermis, which substantially increases the renewal and repair of collagen, elastin and proteoglycans – all of which are essential for skin elasticity. The efficacy of VERISOL® has been proven statistically significant in six different studies involving nearly 500 participants.
VERISOL® collagen peptides have also been awarded a Foods with Function Claim (FFC) for skin elasticity in Japan, with products using these Bioactive Collagen Peptides now able to claim: “Contains VERISOL® Collagen Peptides. VERISOL® is reported to maintain skin elasticity and supports skin health.” And even though collagen peptides are already well known as a beauty-from-within ingredient in Japan, the granting of this health claim is a very important milestone for GELITA and for the market.
Meanwhile, our customers in Canada can choose from a range of 12 claims for VERISOL® authorized by Health Canada. They include: ‘Helps increase skin elasticity’; ‘Helps promote healthy collagen production’; ‘Helps with the appearance of smooth skin’; ‘Helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines’.
While consumers cherish our Bioactive Collagen Peptides (BCP®) due to their proven effectiveness, manufacturers value their technological properties. Being highly soluble, they can easily be incorporated into various types of liquid and solid functional food applications or nutricosmetics – from drinks and concentrated ready-to-consume liquid shots to tablets, capsules and flavored powder mixes.
