TRI-K Launches New Vegetable Alternative for Animal Collagen

As the vegan market continues to grow, TRI-K has launched CollaPlant Z NPNF (INCI: Hydrolyzed Soy Protein (and) Rice Amino Acids (and) Hydrolyzed Adansonia Digitata Seed Extract (and) L-Proline), a vegetable-derived collagen replacement for animal-derived collagen.

“CollaPlant Z NPNF was specifically developed to mimic the benefits of collagen, a key element in the fight against aging,” says Mihaela Gorcea, Ph.​D., associate director, evaluations and scientific communic­ations, R&D of TRI-K. “This ingredient was designed to have comparable amino acid composition and sensory profile of hydrolyzed animal collagen.”

CollaPlant Z NPNF has undergone in vivo clinical studies and sensory tests that show immediate and long-term increased skin moisturi­zation, fortification of the skin barrier for protection and smoother and more rejuvenated skin.

The ingredient is made from sustainable plant sources and is GMO-, paraben- and formaldehyde-free. This vegetable collagen is reportedly suitable for use in all types of skin and hair care applications.
