Comparing and Contrasting Glutathione and Collagen Supplements

When it comes to skin care products, glutathione and collagen supplements are the most popular and highly recommended. Both have various benefits and offer solutions to specific skin aspirations and problems.

Glutathione supplements are known for their skin whitening purposes in the world of beauty and cosmetics. Glutathione is an antioxidant that helps prevent oxidative damage in our skin cells. Having deficiency of glutathione can cause various diseases that affects the health of our skin cells and makes our skin look dull and dark such as cancer, and cystic fibrosis. Its skin lightening benefit is actually a side effect of taking large doses of glutathione. When glutathione is oxidized, it becomes L-glutathione which inhibits melanin synthesis (the natural protective process of the skin to turn dark). Glutathione supplements are primarily created to help treat the deficiency problems but are now widely used to make the skin cells healthier and the appearance of skin to look naturally whiter.

Collagen supplements on the other hand are known to prevent ageing symptoms both in the world of beauty and also in the world of health. In Malaysia, collagen benefits are recognized because it makes the skin look younger and firmer. Collagen is a very important protein that connects the tissues found in our tendons, ligaments, bones, and skin. This is why collagen supplements are very effective in treating not only skin ageing symptoms but also body ageing symptoms. Most collagen for skin products are taken in as hydrolyzed form for easier absorption and faster effects, and they mostly come in supplements pills or as a collagen drink.

Deciding between the two skin care products depends on the needs and wants of your skin and health.

Deciding between the two skin care products depends on the needs and wants of your skin and health. If you want to lighten acne scars, age spots, and other dark pigmentations while preventing risks of cancer, the recommended supplement would be glutathione. If your goal is to age healthily and strong, including a more youthful looking appearance, choose collagen supplements. Taking both supplements can prevent dark skin formulation for a long period, and also slow down ageing.

      Hi France Ele,
      L-Glutathione functions by reducing melanin production by the body, aiding in lightening of skin tone overtime. Collagen, on the other hand, is a protein that holds body cells together. Its role is clearly seen on the skin as it determines the elasticity and firmness of skin. It does not actually aid in skin whitening but as it keeps skin younger looking and healthy, it makes skin look radiant.

      Hi Nida,
      For Collagen, there is no FDA guidelines as to the amount of collagen required to be taken by a person per day according to age. Following the intake guidelines for our registered product with Malaysia Ministry of Health would be 2000mg per day or if added with Vitamin C, about 1800mg per day.
