Elastin is a water-insoluble, highly cross-linked hydrolyzed protein. Elastin is a major component of elastic fiber. It is a major scleroprotein found mainly in connective tissue, especially in the elastic tissues of tendons and arteries.
Elastin is an important component of skin composition. Elastin is only 5% in the skin, but it is the key to stimulate the formation of collagen and elastin. 70% of the skin's collagen determines the skin's suppleness and fullness. Elastic fiber determines the firming elasticity of the skin, while 90% of the elastic fiber is composed of elastin. Therefore, elastin is the youth of the skin.
If the skin care product has both elastin and collagen, it will have a very good effect on keeping the skin young, delicate and elastic.
