VeCollal has an amino acid profile identical to human collagen types, combined with  gene-stimulating inductors, therefore providing all of the incredible benefits of collagen supplements with zero animal ingredients

What is VeCollal®


VeCollal® is the world’s first plant-based (vegan) collagen alternative driven by science and inspired by sustainable innovation.


Developed in collaboration with skin tissue engineer, Josué Jiménez Vázquez, PhD, and world-leading private label manufacturer, TCI Biotech, VeCollal® mimicks the human type 1 & 2 collagen profile with plant-based ingredients.


VeCollal® is designed with the environment in mind. Sustainable production and plant-based ingredients deliver all the benefits of traditional animal-based collagen supplements.


Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body.

The word collagen word comes from the Greek word kólla, which means glue.

The body naturally makes its own collagen by breaking down dietary protein into amino acids. Accounting for 90% of the body’s collagen, type 1 collagen is defined by its unique amino acid profile. It is predominantly found in connective tissues including skin, tendon and bone tissue. It is responsible for the skin’s elasticity and main structure, as well as the health of hair and nails.

Type 2 collagen is the cartilage collagen: it makes up 50% of all protein in cartilage and 95% of collagen in articular cartilage

Unfortunately, natural collagen production decreases from around the age of 25, with other factors such as poor diet, sun exposure, oxidative stress and smoking also negatively impacting collagen levels.


Type 1 collagen accounts for 90% of the
body's collagen content 


The remaining 10% consists of types 2-28

The consumption of animal collagen and collagen peptides has been scientifically proven to boost collagen levels, which contributes to the healthy structure and appearance of skin, hair and nails as well as joint heath. However, animal sources of collagen have their disadvantages:

However, animal sources of collagen have their disadvantages:

  • As they are sourced from animal sources such as fish, cows or chickens they are not suitable for vegans.

  • The farming of animals has a high negative impact on the environment.

  • Animal-derived collagen can contain heavy metals as found in animal bones and soft tissue.

  • Allergic reactions can occur, especially with marine-derived collagen.

  • Human collagen fundamentally differs from animal collagen as it has a unique amino acid profile. No animal collagen is a perfect match for human collagen and even differs among species.

Therefore, there is a clear need for an alternative and even more so, for an alternative that is proven to provide the same or better benefits. This is why we have developed VeCollal, a scientifically proven alternative with amazing results.
