Hydroxyproline, leg wellness & cellulite
The aminoacid hydroxyproline is an integral part of the collagen molecule and therefore it plays a key role in collagen production and skin firming. For this reason, hydroxyproline is of great importance as active ingredient in anti-ageing, anti-cellulite, leg wellness, skin firming and under-eye creams.
