Collagen ingredient granted NPN
Health Canada has confirmed the clinical efficacy of a specific low dosage (2.5 g/day) of Verisol, a collagen peptide ingredient from Gelita designed to support skin health.
After a thorough review by Health Canada’s Natural and Non-prescription Health Product Directorate (NNHPD), officials have confirmed Verisol to be a safe and effective. As such, NNHPD has awarded these Bioactive Collagen Peptides with an NPN, allowing manufacturers of licensed natural health products to now include Verisol as an ingredient with claims toward skin health.
Alicja Wojewnik, owner/founder of Dicentra, who led Gelita’s initiative for Health Canada approval – iterates,
“The Verisol claims approved by Health Canada now offer health & nutrition marketers with new possibilities for promoting products geared toward consumers wanting to protect skin health. This speaks to the power and credibility of Gelita’s robust scientific body of evidence.“
