11/10/2023: The manufacturer of Collageneer® has changed the name of their product to CO2LLAGENEER®. This name change is due to them no longer using hexane as a solvent in manufacturing, the product is now extracted using a much cleaner method of CO2 extraction. The product specifications and INCI name remain the same.
CAS No.: Mixture
CO2LLAGENEER® (Collageneer®) is an anti-aging and firming ingredient that stimulates the synthesis of a high-quality collagen to increase elasticity and firmness in the skin, helping to remodel the facial contour.
CO2LLAGENEER® is made from lupeol, which is extracted from the coatings of sweet white lupin seeds in a patented process. Once extracted, the lupeol is solubilized in oleic sunflower oil and then semi-refined and stabilized by adding natural ±-tocopherol. Sourced from lupine plants cultivated using sustainable agricultural practices in France. CO2LLAGENEER® works by stimulating the production of HSP47 in the skin. HSP47 is a collagen-specific I molecular chaperone which helps the synthesis of good quality procollagen I.
