Collagen is a fast-growing phenomenon in the health and wellness industry, with many supplement and beauty brands finding ways to incorporate it into their products. It's the most abundant protein in the human body, with a fiber-like structure that forms connective tissue. TCI is a trusted global source for high-quality skincare products and supplements, and we're answering the demand for collections containing collagen with attractive, marketable labels.
There May Be More Functions And Types Of Collagen Than You Think!
Recently, research has found that collagen supplements “replenish the loss of collagen,” and deliver special dipeptide components from collagen: proline-hydroxyproline (Pro-Hyp). This ingredient has the “signal transduction factor” function. After absorption, it may promote the proliferation of human skin cells, synthesize collagen, stimulate the activity of hyaluronic acid enzymes, and increase hyaluronic acid content in the human skin. The formation process of collagen in the human body is extremely complex. To form collagen, each tissue needs to have enough amino acid raw materials, and various polypeptide precursors to drive the action of fibroblasts.
In 2005, Professor Kenji Sato of Kyoto University found that if hydrolyzed collagen is ingested, the concentration of dipeptide molecules greatly increases in the blood . Animal experiments at Tohoku University in Japan fed mice with isotope-labeled small molecule collagen. The results also detected the collagen signals in the blood, indicating that the absorption rate of collagen can be significantly increased with post-treatment collagen . Another study found that after feeding pre-treated collagen, the signals of these collagens could be detected in the skin, bones, and joints of experimental animals [3,4], Thus, indicating that not only can the pre-treated collagen be absorbed, but it can also be distributed to the skin, joints, and other tissues. This provides some Pharmacokinetic scientific evidence for the efficacy of collagen.
Precise Collagen Selection to Maximize Effects
Currently, around 28 different types of polypeptides have been found to make up collagen. The most common types I, II and III account for 90% of the total . Other collagen peptides, which act as polypeptide precursors are responsible for strengthening the connection between collagens, or act according to different target groups of tissues (such as skin, muscle, joints). In other words, different types of collagen have different effects on skin, nails, hair and joints. Through accurate analysis of collagen peptide effectiveness, collagen can be selected by specific needs to maximize the effect of collagen and create the best collagen products.
Why Do Consumers Buy Collagen?
Collagen offers plenty of health and beauty benefits, making it popular among consumers. Potential benefits of using skincare and wellness products that contain collagen are:
- Smooth skin
- Stronger nails
- Improved joint health
- Lean muscle mass
- Shiny hair
- Better skin elasticity
- Improved density of the bones
The effect collagen has, specifically on the hair, skin and nails makes it desirable to consumers striving for long-lasting results from their beauty products. A Consumer Reports survey found that 7% of American men and 19% of American women have used collagen in the past. The role of glycine in collagen is that it's 1 of 3 amino acids producing glutathione. This powerful antioxidant prevents damage to the cells caused by free radicals.
Plant-based collagen, new application with 0 animal ingredients
“Vegan collagen” is on the rise. Collagen that containing no animal ingredients is impressive and incredible and ,impossible. Currently, collagen derived from animals is the primory source of collagen. Still, it may have potential problems such as variation between batches, environmental pollution, biological heavy metal pollution, adverse allergic reactions, etc. “Vegan collagen” appeals to vegetarians, vegans, and other religious or social groups who do not consume or use animal-derived products due to their beliefs.
VeCollal® Announced Its Collaboration With TCI
VeCollal® is the world’s first science-based vegan collagen alternative!
TCI Research Team Conducted A Two-stage Scientific Examination To Estimate The Effectiveness
The research and development team at TCI used two-stage scientific verification (picture). The efficacy of collagen cells and clinical trials were confirmed in the first stage. After the efficacy was confirmed, the active function analysis was carried out during the second stage. First, fast protein liquid chromatography (FPLC) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) were performed to purify and separate collagen. Then, a high-resolution mass spectrometer (Q-Tof MS) was used to analyze a complete composition map and amino acid sequence structure of collagen. In addition, biological databases (UniPro, PDG, ExPASy and PubMed, etc.) were used to interpret a large amount of data to unlock the secrets of collagen peptides. Through scientific verification by the research and development team of TCI’s Molecular Identification & Analysis Laboratory (MIA Lab), they were able to analyze the types of collagens from different sources, amino acid sequences, special functions and active structural regions of various collagen peptides to create unique functions for various collagens. Thus, TCI was able to provide more complete and professional information to the customer so that they are no longer confused by the different collagen products in the market.

Is Collagen Right For Your Brand?
What Are the Benefits of Private Labeling Your Brand?
If your brand is aiming for growth in nutritional supplements, collagen may be a good fit for you. With beauty and wellness products, consumers are looking for three key elements that make them take action and close a deal:
- Clear benefits
For your collagen product to sell, you must appeal to the ethically minded consumer in the wellness space who wants reassurance that your product meets their standards. It means using your labeling to communicate how you source your materials, where you manufacture your product, where you get the ingredients and what those are. You also need to define the product's advantages to show the customer why they need it now.
With collagen, there are plenty of perks that make this possible. Using private labeling through a company like us, TCI makes it easy to show consumers why your collagen product is worth choosing.
We also have introduced a new vegan alternative collagen VeCollal® and have developed various health supplement products that are animal-free, with low carbon emissions, and sustainable. If these are your company's priorities, we can create supplements for you. The plant-based movement is growing, and consumers are interested in vegan alternatives for supplements. Get a quote on VeCollal® for your company today.
There are many benefits of private labeling for your brand. Private labels refer to a label that your corporation owns, displaying the brand name. An excellent example of this is Costco's brand "Kirkland." When you add a private label to a product sold at your store, you claim accountability for the quality and reassure customers about what they're buying.
There are many reasons to consider this labeling option for your products. At TCI, we can help you make this dream a reality with 40 years of proven experience in helping our clients take products from concept to launch. We help you make a profit through consultation, quality management, manufacturing, product planning and more.
Don't miss out on the advantages of private labeling for collagen or other wellness products. These include:
1. Higher Profit Margins
When you sell your products under a private label, you're saving money on marketing costs (that would be paid to a premium brand for their name). You also get the product from the manufacturer for what it's worth, rather than paying extra because of the name on the label.
2. Reduced Operating Costs
Your operating costs are lower for private label products because you don't need to spend money on marketing campaigns. The skin, body, vitamin food, or diet products you sell under a private label should be items that sell regularly and don't require promotion to be desirable. Then, your private label speaks for itself. It's also produced in high quantities by the manufacturer, allowing them to lower the cost.
3. Brand Loyalty
A private label works to your advantage because consumers who trust your brand and shop with you regularly also develop respect for your private label products. Whether vitamin C, oral collagen supplements, or other collagen products, they'll choose your private brand product (and its lower price) over a premium brand-name product.
We bring decades of experience to helping our clients develop private labels for products containing collagen peptides, collagen fibers, collagen proteins and more. Our labels are suitable for the following dosages:
- Liquid collagen
- Collagen shot
- Collagen powder
- Collagen tablets
- Collagen capsules
