XYZ Smart Collagen is a topically applied collagen boosting cream developed by Wolfson Berg.
The company has been around for many years and synonymous with producing quality health and beauty products.
The cream was originally created to help speed the healing of tattooed skin, but the formulation boosts collagen levels so successfully that is also one of the best ways to lift, smooth, and tighten the skin.
The product has been featured in many top magazines including Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan, and Vanity Fair and is being hailed as a “breakthrough in professional skincare”.
- Better skin texture
- Reduces wrinkles considerably
- Lifts, contours, tightens, and firms the skin
- Smooths the skin and improves elasticity
- Heals tattooed skin and reduces stretch marks
- Provides a younger, rejuvenated look
- Makes you look 7.5 years younger in 12 weeks
Although Wolfson Berg are making some big claims for their collagen cream, it does not appear to be all hot air. The formulation has been scientifically tested and a qualified dermatologist states that it works.
After an 84-day clinical trial, all 21 of the study participants had noticeably younger and healthier looking skin.
The data also showed:
- 100% more facial collagen
- 138% reduction in wrinkles
- 137% better skin texture
- 84% improvement in skin firmness
- 212% improvement in the appearance of stretch marks
What is XYZ Smart Collagen and How Does it Work?
When the cream is rubbed into the skin it’s absorbed into the tissue beneath the dermal layer and stimulates the production of high quality collagen.
Collagen is the main structural protein in connective tissues. In fact, 30% of the proteins in the human body are collagen. There are 28 different forms and 80-90% of them are types two and three. These two types of collagen are responsible for creating the network of fibers that ensure the skin remains nice and firm. They are extremely important, but the body’s ability to produce collagen diminishes by around 2% per year. By the time most people reach their 80th birthday their skin has a collagen level that is 30% less than it was when they were 20-years old.
There are several ways to boost collagen levels, but most of them offer poor or temporary results. The old-school way is to apply creams that contain TGF-b receptors, but the use of this technique causes the body to create too much collagen of a very low grade, and overloading the skin with inferior collagen offers very little benefit. XYZ Smart Collagen is not designed to work in this way.
It uses an organic ingredient that provides smart collagen management by gently stimulating the collagen producing fibroblastes and encouraging them to produce high quality collagen.
XYZ Smart Collagen only contains one active ingredient—Bulbine frutescens.
Bulbine frutescens is a gelatinous sap extracted from the leaves of the South African flowering plant that provides its name. It’s a traditional medicine in South Africa and has been used for treating burns and wounds to the skin for many hundreds of years. It’s ability to this can be backed up by a number of scientific studies. During one study, conducted at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, the scientists gathered data that confirms B frutescens has the ability to accelerate wound healing, and also shows the compound provided “a significant increase in collagen, protein and DNA”.
Although Bulbine frutescens’ natural ability to firm and tone the skin and help remove unwanted crow’s feet, frown lines, and other unwanted signs of aging make it a very useful ingredient, it often loses potency when it is obtained by standard extraction methods. Wolfson Berg have got around this by using a unique cold press extraction system that maximizes the amount of sap the leaves provide and also ensure none of the power is lost.
Although Wolfson Berg appear to be the only manufacturer extracting the sap in this way, the benefits of cold pressing are well known in the juicing industry. When ingredients are cold pressed there is no heat or air involved. This means there is little or no oxidation and results in a higher quality extract.
Side Effects & Health Issues
XYZ Smart Collagen is a natural product that does not contain any man-made drugs or chemicals.
A high quality natural skincare product such as this is unlikely to cause side effects. The formulation is certified vegan friendly and the quality of the product has been certified by NAGOYA, COSMOS, ESCOCERT, and NATRU. These organizations exist to help ensure customers receive only the best quality, natural health and beauty products and only the best products are selected for certification.
The Bottom Line
Wolfson Berg appear to have developed a very good product. XYZ Smart Collagen contains an ingredient that has proven abilities. It is extracted in a very efficient, if somewhat unconventional, way; and scientific evidence show the formulation works. XYZ Smart Collagen is an impressive creation that should be perfect for anyone who wants to look younger, say goodbye to unsightly stretchmarks, or ease the pain of sore freshly-tattooed skin.
Where To Buy XYZ Smart Collagen Cream
XYZ Smart Collagen is only available via the manufacturer’s website and, at the time of this review, a (50ml) pot was retailing for £39.99. Thats more than reasonable for a product of this quality, especially when you compare it to to some of the top end creams available at Boots.
