The collagen is widely used as a safe and natural biomaterial in the manufacture of cosmetic products. The Australian-produced collagen is regarded as an ideal substitute for Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF).

Holista’s collagen production facility in Western Australia uses a patent-protected technology.

The product is currently listed or authorised as ‘cosmetic grade’ in countries including Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, and the United States.
