Everything You Need To Know About Vegan Collagen

Becki Francis | May 01, 2024 | 2 min read

Ever wondered why collagen is the talk of the town when it comes to skincare and wellness? As the body's most abundant protein, it plays a pretty big role in maintaining skin elasticity, hair strength, and muscle durability. But here's the kicker: after the age of 25, our collagen levels start to decline, bringing along fine lines, brittle hair, dry skin, and weakened muscles - definitely not the vibe we’re going for. So, boosting your supply of collagen can help prevent these symptoms over time and keep your skin looking its best!

While traditional collagen supplements are often sourced from marine or bovine origins, finding collagen for vegans has been a challenge - until now. But what exactly is vegan collagen, what are the benefits, and what is the best way to take it? Let’s find out…


What is vegan collagen?

Vegan collagen is a game-changer for plant-based beauty enthusiasts. Unlike its animal-derived counterparts, it's crafted from 100% plant-based ingredients, offering a cruelty-free alternative without sacrificing effectiveness. While our bodies naturally produce collagen, vegan collagen supplements provide the building blocks needed to boost collagen production for healthier hair, skin, and nails. Despite the name, vegan collagen supplements don't actually contain collagen since it's sourced from animals. Instead, they include powerhouse nutrients that support collagen synthesis. As we age and our natural collagen production slows, supplements like our Dewty Vegan Collagen can be a helpful addition to keeping that youthful, glowy skin. Plus, it’s perfect for vegans, vegetarians, and anyone hesitant about animal-derived products.

What’s the difference between animal collagen and vegan collagen?

Animal collagen typically comes from sources like fish scales and cowhide, making it a no-go for those avoiding animal products. Vegan collagen, on the other hand, gives your body the plant-based building blocks to boost your body's own collagen production. Our Dewty Vegan Collagen offers all the benefits of traditional collagen supplements without any animal derivatives. Powered by our exclusive Coll-egan® formulation, it's packed with essential amino acids to boost your natural collagen production and deliver visible results, like reducing fine lines and wrinkles in just 4 weeks! 

What’s in vegan collagen?

Vegan collagen is full of amazing ingredients that contribute to healthy skin, hair and nails, plus lots of other alternative benefits too. Dewty Vegan Collagen, in particular, is packed with a super blend of five collagen-enhancing amino acids, Vitamin C and bamboo extract.

  • Amino Acids

Amino acids are fundamentally the building blocks of protein and are essential components for creating collagen. Our Dewty Vegan Collagen is formulated with a blend of five of these special amino acids (L-Glycine, L-Hydroxyproline, L-Glutamine Acid, L-Alanine, L-Arginine, L-Proline), specifically developed to replicate these natural building blocks so you can experience clearer, more hydrated skin in just 2 weeks!

  • Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that is great for improving skin tone and texture, boosting the immune system and accelerating collagen production. Vitamin C is a hero ingredient, which is why you’ll find 100% of your daily recommended allowance of Vitamin C in our Dewty Vegan Collagen. So you can say hello to brighter skin and goodbye to the signs of ageing!

  • Bamboo Extract

Almost all plant-based foods contain plenty of natural silica, but bamboo is considered one of this nutrient's best sources, which is what you’ll find in our Dewty Vegan Collagen. This powerhouse bamboo extract stimulates collagen production, rejuvenating your skin and promoting cell growth for a youthful bounce. But its benefits don't stop there. Silica enhances the resilience and appearance of your hair and nails, too!

How does vegan collagen work?

Vegan collagen works similarly to non-vegan collagen supplements. When you take a vegan collagen supplement, whether in powder or liquid form, the amino acids and other nutrients are absorbed into your body. These nutrients then travel to your skin, where they help boost collagen production. However, like all good things, it takes time and consistency to really see the effects - usually within four weeks. 


What are the benefits of vegan collagen?

  • Clearer, more hydrated skin

  • A reduction in fine lines and wrinkles

  • Stronger hair and nails

  • Muscle and joint recovery

  • Better bone health

  • Improved gut health


Who should take vegan collagen?

If you're aiming for a clearer, more youthful complexion, then adding collagen into your routine could be just what you need. While collagen supplements sourced from animals are readily available, opting for vegan collagen may appeal to those seeking animal-free alternatives. The popularity of vegan collagen is on the rise as individuals explore cruelty-free options in their wellness journey. Ultimately, the choice between animal-derived and vegan collagen depends on what aligns best with your health and lifestyle preferences.
