I have been using this product for 6 months and it is just amazing. My eyes have always been sensitive to other products, but not Long Lashes, I have no reaction at all (other than an incredible result)!! My lashes are thicker, longer and incredible. Mascara is no longer needed - my lashes speak for themselves. Love this product!

Finally a lash serum with no nasty toxic stuff in that doesn’t irritate my eyes but delivers amazing results! My eyelashes are so lovely and long and my eyebrows have now grown back in!! Love that this product is also Australian made!

I've been using Long Lashes for only 6 weeks and have already noticed about 3mm growth or more! My children have the most beautiful Long Lashes, and sadly they get this from Daddy! But now I am a contender in our family and also have amazing Long Lashes!

What is the difference between Collagen and Gelatin?

What is the difference between Collagen and Gelatin?

Both collagen and gelatin are derived from the same source so they both have excellent amino acid profiles. Very anti-inflammatory as well, making them useful for so many modern day complaints. 

Collagen peptides are not exactly the same as gelatin. Gelatin is made by boiling animal bones, cartilage, and skin to extract the collagen. Collagen is the fibrous protein that connects muscles, bones, and skin in animals. Both are proteins made of amino acids, but the amino chains of collagen peptides have been cut into smaller pieces through a specific hydrolysis process. Collagen peptides do not have the gelling functionality of gelatin and are soluble in hot and cold water. This makes digestion of this protein more absorbable and easier to tolerate. 

Collagen is a protein that makes up 1/3 of our body and especially our skin. That is why we are seeing it in so many beauty products. It is made up of many amino acids, found in muscle meats and fish scales and many of us are not getting that in our diets – especially if we are vegan or vegetarian.

Gelatin vs Collagen

While collagen is in many beauty product that kind of collagen isn’t often absorbed through the skin. We often need to digest it and absorb it through our gut to realise it’s true potential.

It is beneficial for:

  • Healthy skin and tissue repair
  • Muscle growth and maintenance
  • Hair and nail growth
  • Wound healing including scars
  • Joints, ligaments and bones
  • Ageing gracefully by supporting skin elasticity
  • Digestion and gut issues
  • Additional protein source

Our Beauty Collagen is sourced from grass-fed pasture-raised cows and our Marine Collagen is sourced from the scales of sustainably caught wild fish. To ensure our collagen is 100% pure quality, it is completely colourless, odourless and flavourless and will dissolve in hot or cold liquid.
