Reduction of Wrinkles 1

A clinical trial with more than 100 women aged between 45 and 65 years showed that the oral administration of 2.5 grams per day of the collagen peptides in Lova NaturalsTM significantly reduces wrinkles after 4 weeks and leads to a significantly higher skin pro-collagen type I and Elastin concentration.

  • Duration
    Effect
  • Month 1

    Eye wrinkle volume significantly reduced by more than 7.2% (p<0.05). 1

  • Month 2

    Eye wrinkle volume significantly reduced 20.1% on average (p<0.01). A maximum reduction in eye wrinkle volume of 49.9% was achieved.1

    Pro-collagen type I and Elastin significantly increased by 65% and 18% respectively (p<0.01). 1

Higher Skin Elasticity 2

Another clinical trial containing 69 women aged between 35 and 55 years revealed that the collagen peptides in Lova NaturalsTM Beauty Repair leads to significantly higher skin elasticity – up to 15% - compared to placebo treatment. The effect could be measured after just 4 weeks of treatment and persisted after 8 weeks of consumption. Even after the test group stopped consuming Lova NaturalsTM Beauty Repair, the test group still showed higher skin elasticity levels than in the placebo treated group at 4 weeks.

  • Duration
    Effect
  • Month 2

    Skin elasticity increased by 7% (p<0.05), with more pronounced effect on women ≥ 50 years. In Some women, a maximum increase of skin elasticity of up to 30% was observed. 2

Promoting Growth and Health of Fingernails 3

Many women suffer from cracked or chipped nails, nail peeling and nail roughness. A clinical trial published in 2017 showed a decrease of cracked and/or chipped nails just after 2 months of treatment, reaching a decrease of 42% after 6 months. Also, there was a statistically significant improvement in nail growth after 3 months of consuming the collagen peptides in Lova NaturalsTM Beauty Repair when compared to the control group.

  • Duration
    Effect
  • Month 3

    Nail growth rate significantly improved 10% (p<0.05). 3

  • Month 6

    Nail growth rate increased 12% and to 15% after 4 week after the last intake (washout period). 3

    Broken Nails frequency decreased by 42%.3

    Brittle Nails: 64% participant showed a clinical global improvement, with 88% of participants showing clinical global improvement after 4-week washout period. 3

Improved Skin Surface Structure & Significant Decrease of Cellulite Score 4

A double blind, randomized, placebo controlled study with 105 women aged between 25 and 50 years shows that the daily oral intake of the collagen peptides in Lova NaturalsTM Beauty Repair significantly decreases the cellulite score. The effect was measured after 3 and 6 months of supplementation. The ingredient in Lova NaturalsTM Beauty Repair has a beneficial effect on the skin extracellular matrix and restores the normal structure of the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. There was also visible reduced waviness of the skin after 3 months, with more noticeable effects after 6 months.

  • Duration
    Effect
  • Month 3

    Cellulite degree assessment (pinch test) score decreased by 5.3% for participants with a Body Mass Index (BMI) ≤ 25. 4

  • Month 6

    Cellulite degree assessment (pinch test) score decrease by about 9% for participants with a BMI ≤ 25. 4

    Skin surface profile (waviness) reduced significantly by 11.1% (p<0.05) for participants with a BMI ≤ 25. 4
