.1 Not all consumers are aware that the collagen in beauty and food supplements comes from the waste by-products (bone and skin) of factory farmed livestock, or in the case of marine collagen, from the scales of deep-sea fish that may contain harmful levels of mercury. Not only are current methods of sourcing collagen unsustainable, but they are failing to meet the global surge in consumer demand.
.2 Plant-based alternatives, claiming to be collagen, are not. There is no such thing as vegan collagen, since collagen is a protein found in bone, cartilage and connective tissue. Once digested, it is broken down into the constituent amino acids, not repackaged as ‘new’ collagen in the skin — in fact, once consumed, collagen will never reach the skin intact. It is false marketing that ingesting a combination of 15 or more fermented fruits at a sub-therapeutic level will lead to a boost in collagen in the skin.
.3 In order to stay youthful, skin needs certain nutrients that allow it to maintain its structure and system of self-repair. Our REPAIR Essential Daily Superpowder is a vegan protein powder that contains all 20 essential amino acids. Our single-origin Superpowder contains 100% cold-pressed Australian hemp seeds, rich in powerful antioxidants E, C and A and containing the perfect ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids for naturally radiant skin. BEAR takes pride in researching and sustainably producing each product with great care and integrity. All of our products contain activated, highly therapeutic ingredients to ensure nutrients are readily absorbed by the body and are proven in efficacy, safety and stability.
