What is our skin made of?

Our skin is made up of two layers, the epidermis, the top layer we can feel and touch, and the dermis, the deep microscopic layer under our skin. Our skin consists of an extracellular matrix, made up of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, all vital for the skin’s elasticity and firmness, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, and providing skin hydration.


  • Deep down in the dermis contains the proteins known as collagen and elastin, together with glycosaminoglycans (otherwise known as hyaluronic acid) which are the essential building blocks of our skin’s extracellular matrix, produced by fibroblast cells.
